    Toby that is a great claim to fame and future brag mate. I can see you now when you are sixty telling your grand kids "back when I was your age I was such a good off hand shooter that I knocked the head off a racing pigeon in flight with my .22". See by then the story will have grown a bit with the telling over the years.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Me and Sean Dundee went for a walk to go and set my possum traps and took the slug gun. When we got there we saw 4 hares but they were too far away. then we started chasing hares and rabbits and ended up not setting traps.

    Its bloody interesting getting a tagged bird as you can track it back which is cool.

    The last pigeon I shot that was tagged was from MPC which is Manawatu pigeon club which I shot at the Vagas areodrome while doing a duck disturbance under a permit. The bugger flew in range and I tracked the tag back too a local guy that just let his bird out for a feed and fly before he was going to lock it back in the loft.
    We usually get one band in every 100 pigeons shot on average. My mate keeps them all, pretty sure he has about 60-70 now. One from australia even. There is a website with a list of all the clubs initials which tells you were the birds originated from, cant find it at the moment tho.

    Nah, it wasn't me. The poor thing probably choked itself to death because it lives in this house. Six more days......I hope I can manage to not choke myself in six more days.....
