LETTER OF THE MONTH WINS THE JACK PYKE HUNTERS BOOTS
THE AIRGUN WORLD FORUM FOR YOUR RANTS, RAVES AND Q&As
I’ve been shooting airguns since I was a young schoolboy and I’m now in my 70s. I’ve hunted all my life, helped many farmers and landowners with their vermin problems and other duties, and I’ve always shared the fruits of my hunting, and any produce the farmers gave me over the years, with my neighbours and friends. I’ve also shot thousands, possibly millions, of pellets in my garden, and I’ve never caused an argument, a safety hazard, or problems for the local police, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my wonderful sport. In short, and please excuse the self-aggrandisement, I believe I’m an airgunner who is also a model citizen.
I tell you all this for one reason only; because I Thanks to the generosity of the people at Jack Pyke, we’re able to give away a pair of the brand new Hunters boots every month to the reader we consider to have sent the best letter. That’s 120 quid’s worth of excellent footwear, just for letting us know what’s on your mind. You’ve got to like those numbers!
So, have a think about what you want to say and get in touch, by email or letter. Don’t write pages of text because we’ll have to edit it and we’d rather your thoughts were believe there are millions just like me throughout the UK, but we are not the ones held up to represent airgun shooters. We are the ignored majority and it’s time that changed. I shall be writing to my MP, and anyone else I can think of who can influence how we and our sport are perceived, and I’d urge everyone else to do the same. We are good people who enjoy a perfectly legitimate pastime, and it’s high time that fact was established. CLIVE WOODWARD
