Haven't seen a post from catamong for years or I have missed it 

Hi Yicky, hope you're keeping well, I post only rarely nowadays as most subjects on the Forum have already been debated ad nauseam over the years, and as I don't discuss my political views on an open forum, there's not much I can add to most topics.

I don't shoot many pigeons nowadays, it's very hard work over the vast acreages of Winter Rape in our area, Spring drillings are also now a thing of the past, and I've never been too keen on Summer pigeon shooting, as you lose so many birds in standing crops. Also, even Steel shot birds are becoming increasingly difficult to offload, and I will not shoot birds that I cannot properly dispose of.

As regards the shoot in Holland, it was a fabulous event, really well run, I was also fortunate enough to be shooting with one of the "original" PW members, (Mr Potter), who used to captain the Northern team at our North V South Charity shoots.

I used Fiocchi FSteel 28 gram 7's, and I'd have to say that they were every bit as good as a standard 28g lead load, with excellent kills out to 40 metres, even with relatively open chokes,  (I shot most layouts with Skeet / Quarter in my Invictus Ascent).

All the best,
