Shooting is an pricey sport and on your initial day you’re not going to want to go crazy buying top end kit, so we have put together a selection of quality fundamental principle that will look the portion on any shoot, but not cost you the earth.
Let’s commence with kit and the most apparent starting point is a gun.
On your primary day in the field you’ll almost surely be borrowing a gun, as you’re improbable to have gone through the routine of applying for a licence and to the expense of buying a gun without attempting the sport original to see if it’s for you. If you are looking to buy, the new Berretta Silver Pigeon 1, 12 bore over and under is a good place to start, and there are a few reasons for this.
Firstly, 12 bore is by far the most mutual gauge gun for game, and there’s no point getting elaborated on your introductory buy so stick with the tried and tested. Secondly, over and unders are easy to shoot with, I haven’t sufficient words to explain why, they just are! Over and unders are likewise now completely worthy of acceptance or satisfactory on a driven game shoot, a few years ago they were the preserve of clay shooters, and looked down on by game shooters but those days are long gone. Finally, the immense majority of new shotguns sold in the UK are made by Beretta and with good reason, because they are dependable and have magnificent after sales support, and at around £1300 the Silver Pigeon 1 is exception value.
Once you’ve sorted the gun, make sure you have a cartridge bag, and the Bisley range from John Rothery has a quality look to it but at a sensible price. A capacity of 100 cartridges will have to be a great deal for most shoots, and a bag any more prominent have a tendancy to be too heavy when full. You’ll also want a gun slip, hopefully you’ll borrow this along with the gun, but if not Bisley again makes a sensibly priced slip. Ear shelter is vital, but the good news is it is genuinely cheap. After a good deal of years shooting my favourite form of ear shelter is still a pair of foam plugs that cost 39p!
Now let’s look at clothing, and the key thing is a good coat, there is not one thing worse than being cold and wet out in the shooting field, and the Westmoor Jacket from Musto ought to do the occupation brilliantly. It is lightweight, waterproof, smart sufficient for any shoot, but wouldn’t look out of place walking the dog or going to the pub, and at £175.00 it’s outstanding value. Match this up with a country coloured cotton check shirt and a tie if suitable and you’re starting to look the part. On colder days add in a plain green lambswool V neck sweater (Barbour do a outstanding range), or a green fleece waistcoat (try Seeland for a good value option).
A good pair of moleskin trousers in a green or lovat will be idealisti for the lower half. You’ll find the experienced shooters are in general wearing breeks, but investing in breeks for your primary day out isn’t a necessity, and once you’re in your Wellingtons not a single soul may tell anyway. Wellington boots are probably the second most important item of costume after your coat. At most shoots you’ll find that over 50% of ‘guns’ are wearing Neoprene lined Wellingtons made by Le Chameau, who are a clear market leader. If you feel the cold, getting a pair of boots with a Neoprene lining is a must, nonetheless both Hunter and Musto do Neoprene lined boots that look the part, but are in regards to a third cheaper, personally I’m a huge fan of the Musto Pelton Wellington.
The final few things to think with regards to are galore gloves and a hat. Get a pair of reasonably thin gloves so you may feel the trigger and reload easily, particular shooting gloves with a cut away finger are best. A peaked hat is import closely whatsoever the weather as sun in your eyes may be as bad as rain when you’re attempting to take aim. You’ll see all potpourri of headwear, so as long as you keep the colour muted, you ought to be OK. I’m a fan of the Barbour waxed baseball cap. Once you’ve got all that you will have to be set to go. Enjoy!
