Thread: Newbie in Gloucestershire

    Newbie in Gloucestershire

    Complete newbie - been out twice with a local and bagged my first roe deer tonight. Clean kill at 80m, off sticks in fading light so a bit pleased with myself. Doing my DSC1 in November (first dates I could get locally), current thinking is to go for a Tikka T3 Stainless Lite .243 but want to try out a few first. Also do clays, driven and walked up with the 12 bore.

    Welcome and well done on getting your first in the bag. A word of warning though, it can become very addictive...

    You won't forget your first well done. Tikka T3 great rifle, can't go wrong. 243 good calibre but is minimum for deer, I went 6.5 and never regretted it but at the end of the day it's personal choice.
