    parries are easy

    well so its said.
    but today i managed to make it look not just difficult but bloody near impossible.
    arrived at pozzy bout half six,ish to find team of 4 on spot where birds were sitting.
    bugger but no biggy ,plenty of room and with only a 5 bird limit i can live off their scraps.
    they drop the odd bird or 2 while im setting up sweet as my turn soon.
    i watched a 3 bird flight go in to them they drop two and throw 5 shots at the survivor.
    i smile inwardly and proceed to miss said bird 3 times f...u...k.
    oh but theres worse to come i miss singles, 3,s bigger groups in the front, behind, on the side.
    i shot so shite well i shot olympic medal shite.
    fortunatly i shot so badly i think i missed them all bar maybe one clean.
    everything i could do wrong i did.
    short stroking the remy forgetting to pump at all.
    not enough lead not shooting early enough, not planting my hoof where i want to shoot to have enough room to swing.
    i stayed till ten and was so embarrassed i only waved to the foursome as the left with thier gear and limits.

    OH WELL ANOTHER BLOODY DAY TOMMOROW AND THE REST OF THE SEASON
    NO USE CRYING OVER MISSED PARRIES MY GRANNY USED TO SAY.
    : BUT EVEN SO
    i was crying to much for pics unless you enjoy pics of sfa

    Reminds me of the time I spent a whole day in a muddy ditch, enjoying the pissing rain for two parries which I knocked over and then flew off as I went to collect them

    i had that with a mallard drake when 12 gauge steel became mandatory.
    wings flat out on the water
    the dog opens its gob to grab him and he turbo,s out of town quacking his arse off

    yup, steel shot. i didn't do my part, but pretty sure they would have stayed down if i had been using lead. they probably went off to die somewhere slowly which doesn't make me feel great.

    it happens mb
    at least now even tho i dont use the 12 anymore the steel my mates use is a far cry from that cheap nasty shit we were pushed into early on.
    the lack of forethought and the wrong info by people who were EXPERTS didnt help either.
    but the stuff available now is a far cry from that early fiocchi crap and the b&p 32 gram gun killers.
    hopefuly i,l get to try the federal 20 gauge upland steel in the near future on parries.

    Or just stop shooting ducks. Just let them propagate all over the land, like one of Jehovah's plagues on Egypt.

    Had some cheap (S and B?) ammo years ago that would gum up the entire action after very few rounds and sometimes gave off smoke like a black powder gun, well, almost.

    if its thier early steel sold thru h&f read c404s comments.
    thats exactly what it did to me and a mates gun at the time.
    even tho c404,s talking about a different companys ammo
    .
