    VC your dad sounds like mine. Was quick to pull out the discipline but had a great deal of wisdom that at times surprised when you were expecting a clip on the ear. Shame about the Tui but that lesson has served you well through your lifetime.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    What are the best slugs to use for rabbit,hare and possum shooting?

    I use Air Arms Diablo pellets picked up from Youngs Air Guns. Super accurate and heavy enough to knock the buggers down providing I do my part (not hit them in the foot). Air rifles are just like regular rifles, you'll need to spend some time testing pellets till you find the one your rifle likes, plus plenty of trigger time for technique and accuracy.

    I used the Promethus slugs with the alloy pointed tip and the black delrin plastic skirt in a Weirauch HW or HK 80/90. Heavy bloody thing but accurate.

    Id like to use an air rifle with the Theoban gas ram in it. Those heave springs just destroyed scopes with their two way recoil.

    Well done Toby. Did you get it from out the hospital window while the nurses weren't watching or are you back home now?

    That is really great to hear Toby. It is fortunate that you are young and your body is still resilient. Hope you get back hunting a bit more than pigeons soon. I am sure that a good stag would take your mind off things for a while
