So here I am sat in front of a blank page wondering like all of you before me what to write. So I have shot since the age of 10, starting with the farm air rifle, then my own, moving onto a .410 and by the age of 15 / 16 I cycled to the local swap-shop and came home with a 12 bore hammer gun tied to the cross bar. As you can see from that Iím a little over 21. I started rifle shooting in about 1974 and still have the same .22rf, and shot my first deer in 1981. My shooting these days is a few bought pheasant days and as many days after the deer as I can during the season. My friend recommended I join the forum as some of my experiences may help newer shooters, and I have a lot of shooting gear I will never use and I am sure others will.
