  1. 😏 The OP's song was released 5 years before this chap was born, so not the same Billie Joe 😳 🤣

    Very long shot .

    That's not the subject is it ?

    Very long shot .

    You just did Im afraid . Yes I did, but not in any detail. Well, the T word was mentioned, in a desperate manner to justify things, so,,,, its been emotional,,,, got much better things to do than discuss someone's failings.

    Very long shot .

    So you're backing up the OP and questioning others re their abilities,,,, without any back up to your words ? Now I'm not asking you to tell us about yourself and your shooting, as I'm not interested. This thread and my replies are aimed at the OP.

    Very long shot .

    Any discussion in this thread is about exactly that,,,, this thread. My abilities, or anyone else's, except for the OP's, isn't part of the discussion. Like I previously said, in so many ways the shot was wrong, even by the OP's own admission, as has been pointed out numerous times. I will say though, that yes, I've missed and injured quarry, but don't feel the need to let the world know about it 😏

    I'm certainly not judging anything /anyone,,,, just discussing the issues. As has been said numerous times, it's a forum etc.... As I said, I don't feel the need to put my life, or any part of it, up on the Internet.

    We are not discussing 'our' shooting abilities, which is plainly obvious. The OP put up a post with so many flaws in it,,,, we are questioning His abilities,,,, not his guns, or other equipment,,,, the flesh behind the trigger 🤔 I too shoot pests etc, with airguns only, but don't feel the need to post everything I do or discover with my improving shooting skills. I'm happy in my skin, and more than happy with my shooting.

    Where has anyone judged him on being successful 9/10 ? You keep bringing up this ratio, which isn't acceptable on live quarry when you KNOW that you might miss, or injure. By his own admission it was quesswork and a poor shot, being lucky to even hit, let alone kill the rabbit !!!

    As has been said,,,, you're delusional to the extreme,,,, IMHO. Take a look at paragraph 8 of your opening post,,,, it was all quesswork !!!! The gun might be extremely accurate, but...

    November 2, 2018 Had a great day today. Blew off work to go shoot all day with my mate. First up the woods with the airguns after squirrels and jds. Had a few . Then down onto the open farm land this afternoon with my mates new hmr and me with my. 25 cal fx . First a zero check for the hmr at 100 yds and me at 50 for the airgun .spot on . Then we placed targets from 75 out to 200 to see how the hmr performed for accuracy and impact. . Steel plates. Melons .peppers .and the fave -Coke cans . Mate connected nicely with most targets even out to 200 exploding a can of coke lovely . I hit a couple of cans at 100 yds. Which as the wind dropped was pretty easy .i then tried for a can at 150 yds Found the aim point in chairgun for 150 yds and smashed the can second try. . I then went on to repeat it a couple of times .i then tried a 175 yd can but i had to wind my mag down to 7 x to get a 175 aim point at the bottom of the ret. Which was just too hard to see the can properly .so i gave up on that . But im well chuffed with the fx at 150 yds a can is only about 3 x 4 inches . 15 fpe of energy at 150 is still a lot . Cheers stu So this is a direct quote from a previous thread. NOW tell us, honestly, that that shot on the rabbit was ethical !!! A tin can is a static inert object,,,, 3"x4" apparently, and it took two shots just to hit it !!!???

    You seriously are in a world of your own,,,, take a breath and take a serious look at yourself,,,, and your abilities 😏

    ^^^^^^ And something that hasn't been pointed out yet,,,, If you draw a straight line between the 'aim point' [pink dot] and the (lucky) point of impact [yellow dot], if the wind had eased slightly the point of impact could easily have been the mouth/nose area. So a very poor choice of shot, and topic. How anyone can back up and support this I can't really understand. There are so many flaws, as has been pointed out by a few, and how international environmental issues have been included in the OP's 'arguments' beggars belief !!! In my opinion this is just a self ingratiating egotistical 'aren't I good' [NO!!!] thread.
  13. Everything to do with wildlife is unpredictable,,,, if it wasn't it would get boring. The more time spent out watching gives more experience,,,, that's life I'm afraid 😉 Can't answer your question, but I'm sure that by the time you're PC's age you'll have it sussed,,,, maybe 🤔
  14. I see them regularly between Ashford and Canterbury,,,, sometimes they [Spitfire and a.n.other] carry out dogfights directly overhead my GF's place 😁 Awesome and nerve tingling 😃😃😃

    First Swallows.

    Not personally seen any swallows yet near Canterbury, but know someone who has. Seen two Dunnock chicks in same place a fortnight ago,,,, now that is early ! Blackbirds, Starlings, Sparrows, Great Tits, Wrens, Green Woodpeckers and Stock Doves all nest building nearby, again near Canterbury. Saw a pair of Goldfinches nest building in Margate today, adjacent to the railway station. It's definitely all go in Kent 🙂
