    The first hunt with my new gun.

    My dad aka falconhell and midge took me out for a goat hunt. We went up the neighbours trying to blood my new 243. I shot atleast 7 or 8 goats when we had a big bomb up at a group of goats of about 30. I got pictures of two of them and a new trophy for the wall. The first one was a bit smaller than the second but the second one was really old and had a good head.

    The first one i shot was with his mum they were running up the side of the hill. I quickly scoped in and shot. BANG i shot him he went down with a A max bullet right up his A hole. Name:  P1030671.JPG

    That's good seeing your bolt safely open in the pic. Tell us about your new rifle and the 'scope?

    Well done young fellah
    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 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Great first post and welcome to the forums.
    RULE 4: IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET BEYOND ALL DOUBT


    To be a Human is to be an Alien, ask the animals, We invade this world and we are killing it, we are destroying the earth and nobody gives a fuck except for the animals

    Hi there he did some great shooting and some not so good but it was his frist time hunting with a center fire with some more practice he will get there.
    The rifle is a rem 770 with a Nikko Stirling Gameking 3x9x40.
    Thanks for all the comments.
