We had a great day!

Went to the gunshop an shooting range. Went back to bigmacs for some of his wifes home made spag bol. Very nice and great hospitality from them.

Then went to bigmacs awesome farm shooting. As we got there we parked the cars up got the guns out.. there was a jackdaw in a tree i took with a perfect headshot jist dropped like a stone. Then mac got a crow from a hedge next to it.

Went for a little walk and i saw some woodpigeons in a field about 100 yards away. Crept up the side of a fence and a few flew off but some stayed.. got rested on the fence an took the closest one with a perfect shot to the top/back/side of the head. It just fell over head first. The sun was goin down behind me and the hw110 doesnt move when you shoot so i saw the pellet fly an smash its head in haha i was well buzzing. Shouted bigmac to come over an then got the lazer range finder out and it was a 50 yards shot i was well happy lol. Went and got it then we sat in a little hidey hole about 30 yards from a sitty tree. Few crows showed up. Jimmy smacked the first one in the chest with his slugs and it made a right crack ! Then another jackdaw showed up . Same tree. 

I lined it up and was ready to take the shot when the bird sat still. And... nothing ? My friggin safety was still on so i lowered the rifle and took it off but then lost sight of where the bird was so i told jimmy to take the shot instead and he took that one too.

Went for another mooch after and mac spotted a rabbit. I didnt even see it but he got prone and took it with a heart shot. It was still limping about tho so i quickly finished it off with a quick shot to the head before it could get to the cover of a big container it came out from. 

Then i bagged another little rabbit under a hedge with a nice kneeling shot. That will do for the BBQ today 😋

Had a chat stood at the cars with mac an VislaUK nice to meet them both and iv been invited back now iv shown bigmac how to shoot i must have left a good impression. Mac very kindly offered for me to stay over at his but i decided to just go home. Lovely night for a 2 hour drive home 😌 

Good day with some good people. Hope bigmac is happy with my old hw97 it served me well for a lot of years but its just been gathering dust and getting neglected recently so its gone to a good home. He does a lot for the sport so i couldnt think of a better man to give it to. A nice project to keep him busy for a bit and keep him out of trouble 🤣
