    finally got him

    been after this magpie for a wile now and he always seemed to get the better of me,
    hes always hanging around my mates chicken sheds,
    iv sat for hours waiting for him but the bu***r must know i'm there and avoids the place,
    but last week i pop up there with a few targets to do bit of pellet testing and as i was just finished zeroing the bisley magnums which gave the best grouping in my hw80, he came and landed about 40yds away in a tree,

    Nice, I am having trouble with jackdaws at the moment. Jackdaws and magpies are really clever. quite good take, I got a gamo whisper X .22 not sure if its up for the job at 30yards

    Lol The government will ban gun slings and holster from the public to prevent criminals from carrying guns...

    Nice hope it works out for you, I just wonder if jackdaws are like magpies when one is taken all the others from other nests come out swarming the area.

    I am still waiting for my scope and parts for my suppressor to come, and I be up and running, I didn't like the built on suppressor so I chopped it off and put an adapter which slides over and grub screwed on, giving me 1/2" by 20tpi . Its still a newest gun and needs bedding in.
