Bow hunting in Great Britain is illegal and I believe muzzleloaders are precluded since they can't meet the energy/velocity stipulations.

Additionally, handguns have been banned since 1996 which is how I came to end up shooting rifles.

How sad that it comes to that. Well, unlike us, suppressors are common as your pic shows so at least that makes sense!

Yes, trying to find a sporting rifle shooter over here that doesn't use a sound moderator is on a par with the odds of having a winning lottery ticket. They've been in widespread use for many years now.

Don't sweat it mate, it is worth knowing there are family men in England.

Well done.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Super, and in an environment where not everyone can have such privileges.

Thanks Gents,

The next step will be to get him his own rifle later this year. I already have a couple of spare scopes to choose from that can be put on it - a Meopta Artemis 6x42 or a Schmidt & Bender Klassik 3-12x42. The problem is choosing the right rifle. These days, the manufacturers seem to be in a race to the bottom to produce the cheapest rifle with the most plastic. I'm thinking of either a clean Sako 75 SS if we can find one or a new Model 70 Extreme Weather. By the time we get the paperwork submitted in the next couple of months, it will probably be Christmas or beyond before his Firearm Certificate is issued. It can be quite a slow process.

I was lucky in finding him what I hope to be a decent pair of binos last Friday - a pair of 8x42 Meopta Meostar B1. They were in an auction and boxed new old stock. They came out at £320 by the time commission and postage were paid. I believe they retail for around the £950.00 mark over here. Will was using my range finder to look through on the evening he shot the buck which wasn't ideal.

Kind regards,

Tim
