HUNTING WITH CLASSIC AIR RIFLES

Recommended Posts

I found myself invoved in a bit of Old School air-gunning today.

         I was in the middle of checking a few squirrel cages in a customer's garden when a call came from farmer . Half a dozen feral pigeons were doing what pigeons do ,all over things they shouldn't  be doing what pigeons do over .

        I could have nipped home for something more professional-looking but decided to make do with  the squirrel dispatch tool I already had in the van . Namely a 48 year old Relum with iron sights. 

       It turned out there were six hardcore offenders . In a sort of OK Corral ( should that be Coorral? I'll get my coat.) face-off I dropped four into the dust and one onto a barn roof. Number six did an Ike Clanton and escaped. 

        Only one of the shots was  over 25 yards so I claim no great skill but it was liberating not to have to worry about denting stocks, knocking scopes or charging cylinders .

Only four pigeons in the picture. Number five is still on the roof.
