    Stock breaking patterdales

    Thanks for all the constructive comments like I say it's never been too much of an issue because I just knew they weren't around them but my new dogs coming through are gonna be with me in and out feeding the horses/donkeys, mucking round etc virtually 8 hours a day mixing with various stuff so I'll keep a long lead on for a good while and keep the recall as I always would. I just know my Jack Russell's never understood that bigger animals were dangerous well I'm glad anyway because I'm settled on patterdales... Anything smaller than them they can rag to bits.
  2. I'm very much considering patterdales as my next foray into dogs but still considering my options, I've had Jack Russell's in the past but never bothered introducing them to other animals as it wasn't an issue. Just after some experience from you guys as to whats possible and what to expect both off lead and on lead with daily exposure as I live with my animals. Hoping to be able to avoid a horse/donkey stampede trampling sheep and my latest puppy getting disembowelled by a goat.

    So I assume you'd recommend one whether I go .410 or 20.

    It's gonna be for getting some birds, rats and rabbits. Bit of snap shooting or decoying etc. Just in and around the stable blocks and relatively close to house. I'm after versatile option, despite having air rifles

    Well now I feel totally inadequate with pics like that going around.

    Couldn't agree more, that's my excuse to the missus for such a big gun safe. It's gonna be for a few reasons, start introducing the manimals to shots, but mainly for an option when shooting the bunnies and corvids around the stables and relatively close to the house without disturbing everyone, I shoot a lot with air rifles but I like a different sport at times plus the option of snap shooting. I've got the 12 for when I'm doing a proper job but I would like a hushpower it's just now .410 or 20 and I think the 20 is sounding more versatile.

    Fortunately she likes me more than her own kids... Just as I say the horses need to become accustomed, all the horses. She's bloody psychic anyway, nevermind a pin drop, she's probably already tutting for me thinking of another gun and she's 130 mile away this week.

    I appreciate the time and knowledge mate. So I think I'm convinced by going 20, just noise being only factor that could change it, would the 20 disturb people 70 yards away in a house with subsonics, the animals have to get accustomed to the sounds but the mother-in-law is another matter... that's my final question really and if you think it's not going to be excessive at that distance then I'm sold on a 20.. I just have zero experience with trying to be quiet with me 12 bore.

    Couldn't agree more. I ain't all that old but been shooting nearly 15 years, which is probably as if I've picked up my first rifle compared to some of you guys, luckily my Dad instilled great respect for my quarry so I certainly wouldn't dream of taking a stupid shot I wasn't sure I could hit and I am a fair shot but nowhere near the level you guys are at with your experience. I make a point to check zero and to murder some paper even if i can't get out at the bunnies just tryna get that grouping to keep shrinking, certainly well within the 5p though

    Some of the shooting I see on here is unbelievable, pcp's would be my go to if I was commercial but I love the extra sport springs bring and with some of these rifles now when they're nicely fettled are mental in the right hands as above... where can I acquire some of these hands?

    A 20 makes more sense because I appreciate that it's more versatile and It sounds like I could have cartridges for different uses, What's the cost difference like between feeding each one and buying? I've done a bit of research but with you having both what have you found?

    Yeah I'm trying to introduce them to it, but we have one skittish horse that is terrible so while I'm of the opinion of deal with it others at home aren't so in agreement, plus it's not so much being in the fields with them it's being next to the stables for example where they can do damage.

    The way I was thinking yeah I couldn't agree more, and thanks for the advice. Static shooting it is but in the future. 95 for now.
