MEET­ING PHIL

Airgun World - - Points Of You -

As I was com­ing out of my weekly visit to the gym on Sun­day – I try to keep fit so I can carry on hunt­ing as a 70 year-old – I bumped into Phil Hard­man who looked as if he was out with his fam­ily, but he still had the de­cency to stop and have a chat. He is a top bloke and a lot of these over­paid sports peo­ple could learn a lot from the shoot­ing fra­ter­nity. It is nice to chat to the peo­ple who pay your wages!

Keep up the good work. If only they’d had mag­a­zines like Air­gun World when I was a 10 year-old, I would know a lot more about field­craft than I do now, but thanks to the likes of Phil and the rest of your team I am slowly learn­ing. I’ve just re­turned to shoot­ing after a 55-year ab­sence. JOE JONES

You’re ab­so­lutely right, Joe, Phil re­ally is a top bloke, and he gen­uinely en­joys talk­ing to those who read his ar­ti­cles, or any­one else come to that, about the sport he so dearly loves. We’re so lucky to have a team of truly ded­i­cated con­trib­u­tors and it’s al­ways grat­i­fy­ing to see them ap­pre­ci­ated. – Ed

Phil’s a gen­uine good guy – un­less you’re a squir­rel, ob­vi­ously.
