    Had to happen. Don't think I'll ditch the subgauges though.

    Guess I wont be shooting ducks anymore then. Stick with upland and the occasional goose or even just shoot geese and no need for a licence

    I wonder who will import all the Sub Guage Non toxic shot. No one is yet.

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    I have just purchased a 20, 686 silver pigeon and purchased knowing a ban on lead is likely.

    Justified it as I will use it for quail.

    I only shoot ducks a bit and will try and source some lead equivalent like tungsten. might be expensive but recoil on steel shot out of 12ga is too much for me!

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    Ironically the US is finding that steel is worse than lead in waterways. it rusts and turns the water orange.

    I can remember saying that years ago when steel was first introduced here.
    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!
    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

    the sawmills in the US don't like steel either as it blunts the saw blades in the mill.

    What scientific studies have been carried out in NZ that have findings the same as overseas?
    Different environments!
    Sure shallow lakes you may have a problem. But in general crock of s***!

    Why are country's now bring lead back for shooting?

    I recon we should all shoot with 1080 doc sees no problem with dropping that in our waterways more damage being done there
