  2. ive been topping up the squirrel feeder for a week now with sunflower seeds and they've been empty the next day each time so I went out after them this morning. set off at half 6 and on the way to the wood I took a u turn and went for a gander at a lodge where there is usually a few ducks. and sure enough as I got there I saw a pair of mallards swimming about so I got comfortable and waited for them to come closer. 5 minutes later and the drake offered me a chance and I took it. my 1st duck ever back to the plan in action, as I was topping up the feeder I scared two squirrels away

  7. bit more than mine haha. if I shot that many in one go that would be all the squirrels gone round here haha.
  8. smashed my squirrel pb today! 4 squirrels! that probably doesn't sound a lot but to me that's a huge bag considering my previous best is 1 in 1 session haha! and the fact that the most ive seen in one day is 2 in the last 2 years! the 1st squirrel I got was when I was on my way to the squirrel feeder and I suddenly saw a squirrel running along a branch with an acorn in its mouth. it stopped and had a staring contest with me and lost as the air arms s300 sent it to sleep. so one in the bag I went to the feeder. upon arrival I scared a squirrel away from feeder but I new it would be back so I

  18. cheers fellas. ile find a new spot to zero from and give it a dap with an oily rag from now one. ive just had a look at it and theres no sand on the bolt so I should be reyt
  19. cheers mate, how do you think I should clean it?
  20. ive got an air arms s300 and I just wanted to know if I should clean the bolt action? and if yes, how? because where I go to zero is quite sandy and it is impossible to keep sand off it. Also, is it advisable to use the s300 in the rain? just worried that rain in the bolt action may affect pellet accuracy somehow. cheers.
