Her First Day

Recommended Posts

I picked up this little Beretta at the shooting show a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday was the first chance I had to take her for a spin. 

Weather was fair sunny for most of the day with some decent wind at times. I was very limited to where I could shoot based on how high the rape has grown over the last 2-3 weeks. But I found my spot and set up accordingly. It was a sporadic day, the pigeons that decoyed did so very well. BUT I couldn’t seem to hit the birds that came straight across the decoys which with my trusty SxS would have been centre patterned. But I took some very lengthy shots, that I would probably not have put the gun up at with the SxS. Both guns are fixed Chokes. Certainly not my best day over the decoys it has to be said. But there were 2 shots that will live with me for a long time.

We finished on 20 birds, but the cartridge count is strictly between me and the new girl!

I am sure you will get used to the new gun very quickly.

I have a Bretta and it has never let me down.  Specially with long and difficult shots. Downed a very difficult wood cock in February January and that will stay with me for a long time 🙂

Nice stock on your beretta 👍.....I'm not the best when I swap between SXS and OU....seems to take a number shots to get the eye in.
