Only just noticed this thread If you still need another "gun" I would be pleased to help.
Will get BASC or AN other air rifle insurance if needed.
Do you have terriers and smokers ?

Have just been informed I am working that weekend

I can't make weekend of 7th Jan either. The following one would be OK if it gets stretched out that long. Sorry, though sounds as if you'll have enough guns anyway.

I suggest that the rabbits stand in front of a barn door, if my first go with my new rifle was anything to go by.

I will be driving from NE London / SW Essex, (not far from Romford) If anyone would like a lift, I intend to go anti-clockwise round the M25, and could stop off on the way.

We use lurchers far quicker and more effective than air rifles......


Merab took over 60 of these in one night single handed and all retreived live back to hand - this haul was over 3 nights 300 + bunnies, frozen to feed the wildcats during the winter



no waste here.

I suppose from the piccie they look free, unfortunatley they arent, they are captive bred, traceable lines back to the 50's, our kittens go to release programmes or other captive breeding projects....but yes they love the rabbits and the occasional goose - but gratitude from wildcats just doesnt exist lol , still they are beautiful and we look forward to this years kittens.
