Makes a nice change in some ways and certainly a civilised way of doing things , after all how many of us would wander up to a group of people (however likeminded ) and start gibbering on without introductions.
Good evening , my names Steve , mid 40's now , started shooting when i was 7 - i was a very lucky boy , my best friends dad was the farm manager !
I am a rifle shooter , i shoot in just about every colour of the spectrum , target ,vermin , rabbit , fox and deer ( hoping we will see some wild boar round here soon ).
I reside on the Essex / Suffolk border and have access / permission over approx' 4000 acres , i 'earn' my Stalking from the vermin / rabbit / fox shooting plus beating on the estate shoot .I am DMQ 1 qualified together with an NRA RCO's ticket .
Unfortunatly during the week i have to work as a surveyor , although this has led to some very useful contacts over the years , i don't dislike my job you understand , i would just rather be shooting .
I hope to learn from the fellows of this forum , and very occasionally i hope i might be able to contribute something useful as well.
