Quote from Pip on another thread.
I cannot believe that some on here are bemoaning the fact that self loading rifles have been banned. Apart from the battlefield, the only place an SLR has in shooting game is driven shooting and that is banned in the UK! In my opinion, SLRs and handguns attract the wrong sort of people to shooting. I'M HEADING TO MY BUNKER NOW.
To my mind its strange how people view a weapon because its not the normal bolt action type rifle.
I personaly would not have a self loading rifle only because it puts me of seeing the empty case fly out in front of my eyes. I do know several people here who use them. My nieghbour has the Sauer 303 in 300 win mag and a very nice bit of kit it is.
I do have a pump slug gun though.
Just because it reloads fast it do's not mean you have to load the weapon with more than 2-3 bullets.
Even with my Mauser M03 i can fire of bullets at an amazing rate and i have seen a chap shooting a Blaser reload at a speed that had to be seen to be believed.
Its the same rubbish i have seen and heard about single shot rifles (Animal welfare issuse etc)
Who said its illegall to shoot driven deer in the UK? Try it you might find its
Who are these wrong sorts of people self loadering rifles and pistols will attract to deer stalking?
