So we let this guy do a spot of pigeon shooting for us today , he had about 3 shots despite there being over 200 birds about on the clover .
He came into the farm and this is how the conversation went ....
Numpty: alright mate , got any foxes about ?
" yes a few but I take care of them myself with a mate as and when we can get out "
" you want to let me out on them with my tool !"
"Do I ? Why's that ? "
" I've got this new calibre - the .22-250 it's the best you can get for it "
" oh yes I've heard of them "
" best calibre out there , I've taken everything from foxes to moose with it "
"really ? Have you shot many deer with it in this country ?"
"Hundreds mate , they don't know what's hit them , I use a meopta red dot scope - they're the best you can get , they make all the optics for the big brands ! ! And a sako rifle "
" surely that's breaking the law ? Shooting them in this country with that calibre ?"
To which this fool replied "no mate I have an open ticket , and I'm aloud to shoot deer in urban populations with it because there's no risk of ricochet !!!!!"
At this point I realised I could really have some fun with this one ! So I asked him if he had anything bigger
to which he replied " ive got a .338 lapua as well but I don't like folks to know if I'm honest - I'm not supposed to use it on foxes !!!!"
having had my fun I made my excuses and went back to work . But seriously what an old fool .
ifyour on this site , I hope you read this !
