    Dumped Pheasants...

    Surely the fundamental issue is too many pheasants etc are being bred and shot when there is no market for them. Labour have plans in their manifesto to restrict or ban the rearing of game intensively. Its up to the shooting community to put its house in order or have regulation foisted on us

    What do you mean by 'in copper'? Do you load pure copper shot, or copper plated lead?
  5. Used to shoot an Alex Martin sxs 20 for years and used nothing but 7/8 oz no 7 Hull High Pheasant for everything from snipe to Greylags with great success if at sensible ranges. Wish had never sold it

    Looked at a 525 20 bore recently found the handling and wood superb but the action with the silver inlays were far to bling for me. Makes it look like a hair dressers gun

    WH Pollard, Hesketh?

    t From 1st August 1883 Mr Perrins has decided to offer a genuine reduction of 20% for cash on all best guns costing over £10. The offer is due to him being overstocked with best guns, both “ the ordinary kind and hammerless.” Perrins & Son moved yet again - to 59 Broad Street, Worcester - and were still listed among local businesses in 1892, which meant that by then John Perrins had been operating successfully in the city for almost 60 years. Perrins & Son was taken over by Herbert E Pollard in 1892 moving to 62 Broad Street in 1900 - was this a move or expansion of premises? It's not known exactly when the firm went out of business though it may have been before the dawn of the 20th Century. t Tthere must have been more than one

    2k budget - 692,725?

    Try before you buy would be my advice. Have had both and plumped for a 725 UK premium game gun. The Beretta handled like a plank of wood.

    I really don’t get it

    The older I get the more unethical commercial driven shooting becomes to me especially on a large scale. If birds cannot be used the y should not be shot, maybe we need reform of driven shooting prevent this. The operation should be named and shamed.
