    Mrs veitnamcams first shots with a centerfire and first kill.

    Mrs VC (well she will be on sat) Had been showing a bit of interest in coming hunting for a while,So with this in mind Id bought a tika M595 in 243 and sent it off to tuiman2 to have a carbon suppressor fitted.
    Initial testing wasnt to flash so I bedded it(took me a couple of goes)
    After bedding it shot stupidly well

    This evening I had to shoot up to a mates after work to kill a sheep for the spit for our wedding, So I asked the bride to be if she would like to try and shoot it with "her" rifle. A slightly nervous yes was the reply as she hadnt shot it yet.(or any center fire) I dont even know if she has heard a center fire before this evening!

    The only shooting she has done was with the pee rifle and subs at some fearsome looking beer cans about a year ago.

    Not exactly hunting but we did put in a stalk of sorts in order to get a safe backdrop.
    Click pics for vid




    Bit of training waiting for presentation and safe shot, She didnt moan too much about lying in a heap of dead thistles in tights

    First shot parted the wool on its head but thats about it.



    The next shot which I also videod was a neck shot broadside on which dropped it on the spot on the track

    Unfortunately in my haste to get up there and blead it I turned the camera off before I pushed the shutter to stop video and it didn't save to the card

    Next up plenty of range work then a deer(fingers crossed)

    And thanks Rushy for the scope

    Nice one VC. After my missus witnessing a friend of mine getting kissed by my 7mm08 scope she has no interest in playing wiht my centerfires. I've only just managed to get her shooting the suppressed 22 which she seems to like. Beer cans are patient luckily

    Congrats in advance.

    At the end of the first vid you can hear "Im sooo not comfortable" which probably didnt help her first shot.
    Cheers rimfire, she was surprised it "didn't push back at all!"

    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    Good stuff there VC & Mrs VC. I haven't managed to get Mrs gadget to shoot anything yet, ... but I did get her mother to bowl a rabbit at 60m with the 22.

    Excellent stuff VC. Good luck to the both of you for Saturday.
    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!

    Great effort, congrats for Saturday. My wife just got her firearms license (for work) and subsequently told me under no circumstances does she want any "hunting" related Christmas presents!! What....!
    Being over gunned is under rated.

    i would suggest that "ownership" of wives fall into the same category as "ownership" of cats by humans

    vc, good to see the boss out there with you.

    congrats to you and the mrs for the weekend, enjoy !
