    No thanks Toby. There is a difference between eating something because you enjoy it and eating something because you havent eaten in a while and need the energy. Someone told me once that rat tastes like pork. I can tell you that rat tastes like rat.

    Shot a hare tonight with the .22lr, didn't get a pic sorry. I was wondering around the back paddock and my brother came over on his bike then he got off and walked with me and then I saw it running into some blackberry bushs so gave him the gun and told him to empty the mag if it runs out, tin ass got it in one shot although it was the back legs it didn't move anywhere so another shot put it out. Pretty interesting first night home. Skined it and gave it to the dog so she was happy.

    He would have shot it in the head first time if you told him there was only one in it

    Thanks VC the boys have a lot of fun. Sean Dundee has hit a few targets but I think that rifle is married too possom trapper.

    Hes bowled a few pesty birds like sparrows and has been spotlighting for rats

    Hes got a few slugs left and asked me too take him too H&F tomorrow but hes not here so he'll have too wait

    Nice
    One thing I have found is on birds the flat point wad cutter pellets have more knock down, you can hear them hit and they knock them over. Pointy ones on a chest shot they usually take off and have an engine failer 2-3 sec later. Not good long range(for a slug gun) tho

    Amazing Dundee, must be that your round went in one ear and out the other.
