    Decoys for dinner.

    This large buzzard was circling my decoy pattern and actually struck one of the decoys. It jumped back, startled it was plastic and simply flew away.

    Long range work again but with a HW 97K .177.

    Absolutely Jimmy and " hats off to you mate" - the shots I`m managing to pull off with the 97`s can be quite a learning curve. Put the practice in lads, 97`s take a hell of a lot of bettering , I must say ! Easily on par with PCP`s if not better.
  7. Had another session on the rabbits as last week but with my 97 rather than the HW 100. Yes the spring rifles test you much more than a puffer but what a feeling taking another 53 yard rabbit with such accuracy that the 97 offers. Here's the lane I was shooting over. Here's Kaiser`s retrieve. The 97`s shot placement at a lazed 53 yards. Instant despatch. atb Mark.

    What dog??

    German Short Haired Pointers are incredible gun dogs, mine retrieves, points, hunts and will easily sit at my side all day in a hide He works to both shotgun and air rifle.

    Long range rabbits with the HW 100 KT .177

    I`m not sure if you remember Mitch but I did try them. They proved to be extremely accurate indeed. I`ll no doubt move over onto them when the AA Fields run out. If anyone is interested here are those results. AA Fields, 4.52, 8.4 g, 794 ft/sec, 11.79 ft/lbs - superb accuracy/ hard hitting. JSB Exact Express 4.52, 7.87g, 815.6 ft/sec , 11.63 ft/lbs - also extremely accurate and hard hitting. One click right and she's spot on for 38 yards. atb Mark.

    Funny Joke Thread

    Little Johnny in his maths lesson and the teacher says " Johnny I can see you have 5 sweets in your hand , if I was to ask you to give young Abdul one of your sweets, how many would you have left " ? Johnny replied, " F%cking five miss" !
  12. Back to the local nursery tonight on rabbits. When the owner sees a rabbit, he's seen a thousand . I opted for the HW 100 KT .177 off Primos shooting sticks, saw that the ground where he's seen these rabbits is dead flat I went prone off the bi pod. Using AA Fields 8.4g, 4.52 and a half mill dot of hold over, both headshot at 51 and 53 yards. atb. Mark.

    First time out for ages

    Nice shooting BN. In the first picture, third rabbit down, is that a heart/ lung shot you have used ? The reason I ask is that a few shooting mates swear by the heart/ lung shots, especially with the younger rabbits. Again, great shooting mate. atb. Mark.
  14. The accuracy of the .177 HW 97 is top drawer. I was waiting for a rabbit or two but saw this squirrel at a lased 38 yds high up in an old oak tree. Out like a light. About 40 minutes passed and a rabbit slowly raised its head in a weeded area 43 yards to my left. The rifle was already cocked, just the tiniest of " snicks" and the safety was off, shooting off Primos sticks, building the shot and - This is where all the practice pays you back. atb. Mark.
