    I'm interested in anything that goes BANG, but the old stuff is more interesting

    I like it all. I do like pistols but cant be bothered with a club. Rather just have a 22 semi and maybe a 1911 45acp for the pack but that's a bit naughty so not going to happen.
    Id like to shoot black powder but don't want to own one-I can be a bit lax with cleaning and you just cant do that with them.
    like a bit of shotgun action. Do the local clay target stuff but haven't got out on the live game much since I've been back. Would like to have a go at sporting clays-haven't done that for years.
    Done a couple of seasons of indoor small-bore years ago-liked getting the hang of the trigger control and breathing but otherwise bored me to tears. Much prefer shotguns.
    Like playing around with stocks but haven't done many. also like a bit of fitting and repairs but only done mine and a couple of others as required so still learning at that.
    I do like the dangerous game stuff and have a rifle for the job but money lacking there I'm sorry to say.
    Not interested in range shooting as a hobby.
    To much reloading and fecking around to get it right for me. If I was doing it Id have to, to stay competitive and it would get to me.

    filling the freezer...more and more its bush hobbit type hunting that does it following my dog around in tight shitty bush really squeals my wheels. love ducks n geese with shotgun again stalking up and jump shooting preferred to sitting over dekes.

    pretty much sums me up. I hunt but only sporadically and for the freezer. You could describe me as a shooter more than a hunter.
    Had my B for 20 years but gave it away as got bored with it, Still hold my E though. If I have to give up any part of shooting sports then Sporting Clays would be last to go.

    mainly hunting anything larger than a mouse.never worried if I got anything just enjoy the time out and the chance of something.used to like clays ,dtl and sporting now only use a 410 more of a challenge as you don't have the large spread of a 12g. going to get back into rabbit shooting when I can find some properties to do it on.

    Used to like playing paintball and busting clays informally with a few friends. Have been learning the black arts of pistol shooting and reloading for the last 5 or so years.

    I seem to have a problem with everything that goes bang except pistols & e-cats are too much of a hassle, Have my A, E & D licences.

    Really have a soft spot for BIG bores & things that are super accurate
