Good Afternoon to all on the forum.
I am Richard Allen an engineer with a young family in the Cotswolds. I have been shooting rabbits for our pot for some years, originally with an air rifle, more lately with a .17HMR. I am a keen cook and we all very much enjoy venison. I have thought about stalking for a while but never quite got to it. So when some stalking opportunities came my way recently, I thought I had better apply for a rifle, get myself into BDS and onto a DSC 1 and, of course, join a reputable forum.
Looking through your threads, the forum looks to me very similar to a Land Rover one I use a lot: mostly calm, informative and authoritative with a little humour and completely lacking in the personal abuse so often found online.
I look forward to learning from you all and contributing where I can.
