Sporting Gun - - Gear Latest Kit - By Brian P Martin JAN­UARY 2019 www.shootin­guk.co.uk

Now in its third edi­tion, this com­pre­hen­sive book ex­plores the game shoot­ing scene both in cur­rent days and in times gone by, ex­plor­ing life on shoot­ing es­tates and the evo­lu­tion of the sport it­self. Sport­ing Gun read­ers can get £5 off the price and free postage by quot­ing the code SGTGS5 at check-out on the web­site or over the phone when ordering. This tasty sam­ple set lets you try five dif­fer­ent Fox­den­ton gins, in­clud­ing dam­son, plum, apri­cot, rhubarb and rasp­berry. The set con­tains two 5cl bottles of each flavour and is the best way to find out which of Fox­den­ton’s flavours you like the most. Boast some Har­ris tweed on your wrist with this stylish watch, in­cor­po­rat­ing a light green her­ring­bone tweed strap with a soft leather back­ing. With a Swiss-made quartz move­ment, sapphire crys­tal glass and a 316L marine-grade stain­less steel case, each Mor­ris Richard­son watch is cre­ated to op­ti­mise pre­ci­sion, qual­ity and style. Warm, soft and durable merino wool sweater to keep the cold at bay while shoot­ing this win­ter. The sweater fea­tures Al­can­tara shoul­der patches to rest the butt of your gun against. Avail­able in sizes S-XXL.

A good shirt is to be found at the base of any shoot­ing en­sem­ble. If you’re af­ter a new one, then look no fur­ther than this 100 per cent cot­ton weave. The shirts are ma­chine wash­able and eas­ily ironed and come with a sin­gle cuff fea­tur­ing the com­pany logo. Avail­able in a va­ri­ety of sizes. This jacket-style fleece is def­i­nitely one to take with you on those colder days. While it has a knit­ted outer ap­pear­ance, the sweater is tech­ni­cal fleece fab­ric on the in­side and there’s even a lin­ing be­hind the zip to en­sure you stay snug and warm. Clas­sic pair of 100 per cent wool tweed breeks fully lined for added com­fort, with an ad­justable hem that al­lows ex­cel­lent free­dom of move­ment. Fea­tur­ing two side and two back pock­ets and spe­cially treated to re­pel wa­ter and pre­vent stain­ing. Avail­able in sizes S-5XL. If you’re feel­ing gen­er­ous, why not treat your loved one to a new gun this Christ­mas? The new Su­per Black Ea­gle 3 re­duces re­coil via its third-gen­er­a­tion Com­fortech sys­tem. Its up­graded stock en­hances tar­get ac­qui­si­tion dur­ing re­peated rapid fire and a larger load­ing port al­lows for smooth load­ing and eject­ing of car­tridges.

De­signed specif­i­cally for ladies, these new cot­ton shirts fea­ture a feather mo­tif and are very flat­ter­ing but also prac­ti­cal. Avail­able in two designs in sizes 8 to 18. Tough binoc­u­lars that won’t break the bank – whether you’re buy­ing for your­self or as a gift. They’re ni­tro­gen­filled, fog-proof and fea­ture a RoofSch­midt/pechan prism, which all work to­gether to pro­vide clear, bright im­ages even in low light. And if that didn’t per­suade you, they also come with a five-year war­ranty. Spe­cial­is­ing in “won­der­fully wonky” fine art il­lus­tra­tions, Katie Cardew has pro­duced a range of items for coun­try lovers, in­clud­ing this set of four game bird coast­ers, which should find a good home in the kitchen of any shoot­ing en­thu­si­ast. Hand-crafted from the same Euro­pean burnt-oak leather as a Bentley’s up­hol­stery, this is a very stylish but still very func­tional car­tridge bag. Able to hold up to 100 car­tridges, the hinged speed-load de­signed buckle al­lows easy ac­cess when load­ing on a busy drive. Treat your shot­gun to a lit­tle lux­ury dur­ing trans­port with this ch­est­nut leather slip that boasts a fleece lin­ing. It doesn’t just look good, how­ever; it’s also prac­ti­cal, with a full side-zip ac­cess and easy ac­cess flap. It can fit both side-by-side and over-un­der shot­guns with a bar­rel length of up to 32in.
