I didn't get to the range on Friday evening, too knackered.

So I went this morning instead.

Unfortunately a small, family (note the comma; it did not involve The Borrowers) crisis cut my visit short. 50 minutes driving and 10 for 25 minutes of plinking! I didn't even have a chance to put out any targets or any of the Mr. Mini Man regiment!!!!  >:(

But there is good news from this weekend. I was chatting to a local farmer/businessman/landowner/character in the pub yesterday.

"Can I pick your brains?" I asked.

"Certainly," he says.

"I've recently taken up shooting air rifles," I said. "You must know a lot of landowners in the area; do you know if any of them might be interested in giving me permission to shoot?"

"Yeah," he says. "Me."

Nice one!

His place is less than 5 minutes away (that's about an hour and three-quarters less than the place where my mate who says I can cull his bunnies lives) and it might open doors to other places in the area too (this bloke knows people).

So, I'm off up to his place for a walk round next week and then after that I'll be "on the rats".

Another bonus is that he's offered to show me his collection of airguns. He has quite a few antique ones apparently. And 26 shotguns. He's a bit of an enthusiast.

I'll let you know how I get on after my visit.

Awwww, well done Blerky.........that sounds like a cracking development. ;)

Only 5 mins from your door, an airgun enthusiast who knows more potential landowners/givers of permission.......you've really struck GOLD there mucker!! 8)

I'd suggest getting some shooting insurance pronto, to prove to him (and others) that you take your responsibility towards his/their property seriously, and have his/their interests the very forefront of your mind.
Not only that, but it's reassuring to know your own arse will be covered too, should anything unlikely happen.

The benefits of having valid shooting insurance cannot be emphasied highly enough. ;) :)
