    The Opinel no9 could be a bit large to some eyes. Have you considered making something smaller per se a no6? You might just have antler to fit?

    Superb. Delicious even.

    Some very difficult pigeons.

    That sounds like a terrific bit of sport well earned through thorough reconnaissance. The cartridge kills ratio is a very respectable 3:1 in such conditions, so well done !

    I took the dog out for a walk (mid Norfolk) this morning and had one fly over straight over us. Stunning birds that seem to be establishing themselves in the area. Lovely photos GG.

    Precision bird lay out PC. The trough to the left would have made a perfect bin for your empty cases.

    60p a bird is a million dollars compared to what i'm getting. Nowadays I take my fresh birds to local pubs/ gastro/ restaurants. The last lot i shot (46) were as fresh as a daisy and still warm. I pilled them in the motor and the head chef took them in exchange for a few pints of Lacons. A pigeon breast salad in this place is 11.95 !! 😂

    This Thomas Clough of Kings Lynn 16 bore came up at a local auction recently. I was born in Kings Lynn so thought i'd try a bid or two and ended up with this little beauty. The gun is a fair bit older than me though made in 1914. T.Clough used to be on the high street in Kings Lynn until they were bought out by Gallyons in the 1940's. A lovely bit of local history. Weighs just 5lb 12oz and handle like a peach. What a gem, pleased as punch I am.

    Here's my 12 bore Wilkinson (same company that makes razor blades i'm told) of Pall Mall London boxlock. Made in 1906 she's a joy to shoot.

    To FAC or not to FAC

    The impact noise was the issue then? I think this is what you said? Was the shot quiet or was the swoosh of air the noisy bit?

    To FAC or not to FAC

    .25 fac air ( 45 ft lbs) doesn't stack up at 200 yards. I've tried it for interests sake compared with a .22lr. Eley HP subs are the most accurate round in my Sako for hunting out to 100 yards. A lot better with Eley tenex ( at over a tenner a box) accuracy wise. In summary the powder gun win hands down at these ranges. Don't get me wrong I would not raise a gun to vermin at such ranges. The .25 fac didn't come close to the performance of the .22lr on a target at this range. But...... .25 fac air out to 85 yards has it's advantages. In some situations I prefer it to .22lr when out and about shooting pests.
