I posted a few weeks ago and didn't give an intro'. So here goes?
I shoot .22, 222, 243. Shotgun. I'm mainly a stalker, however my main quarry are roe deer. I've never shot any other species in all my old years.
My main passion really was training my gun dogs. I've judged field trials and had some minor success when running my spaniels.
Paws going to give up shooting this year when my cert was due in November. My pal convinced me to have another 5 years. Ok I thought. Fate then played a hand and my old faithful 243 safety packed in. My gunsmith condemned the rifle. I applied for a variation with GMP 6 weeks ago! I've been told today it will be at least 3 months when I phoned them. I was surprised to be told it would be 3 months. Anyway it's my age I digress. I am glad I havent given in fact it's made me more determined to carry on. What's happend when sportsmen become a hostage to the criminal!!!! My past time and stalking is on hold through no fault of mine, other than to remain a law abiding citizen.. A Lancashire stalker.
