ED’S LET­TER

Air Gunner - - Contents -

There’s some­thing of in­ter­est for ev­ery­one in this month’s is­sue, says the ed­i­tor

I t’s been my plan all along as ed­i­tor of this mag­a­zine to try to add as much va­ri­ety as pos­si­ble in the hope that there will al­ways be some­thing of in­ter­est for ev­ery reader. In this quest, I’ve been hugely grate­ful to my bril­liant con­trib­u­tors who de­liver fas­ci­nat­ing ar­ti­cles on all sort of sub­jects that I would never have con­ceived

Gary (p17) brings us a re­port on his cho­sen sport, hunter field tar­get, but the real mes­sage is just how air­gun sport can help oth­ers, some­thing I know he truly cares about. It also touches on a del­i­cate topic that we’ve men­tioned be­fore, which is men­tal health is­sues and I know many of you have been touched by this, so I’m sure his story will have deep mean­ing for many.

This month, Jamie (p28) had me cry­ing with laugh­ter be­cause of the story he wrote about com­ing oh- so- close to los­ing a ma­jor hunt­ing per­mis­sion. Ev­ery word is true, yet I was stag­gered that Jamie’s client had said such ob­vi­ously in­flam­ma­tory things to the landowner and re­fused to see that he’d said any­thing wrong.

Char­lie (p36) has brought us an­other of his in- depth ar­ti­cles on un­der­stand­ing our beloved coun­try­side, and how the end of the day needs to be han­dled from the hunter’s per­spec­tive. I’ve been hunt­ing close to 40 years, but it gave me plenty to think about, all the same.

I love to keep on learn­ing and I’m sure you do too, so read on and I hope you find lots to en­joy. Ed.
