Good one Hidayat. Haven't heard from you much but you have kept your eye in obviously.
93 yards is a good distance for two shots. Now you can get back to getting in the sileage.

Well done! Its nice if you can be a bit hidden or still after shooting one and that next bird will present for you.
After shooting a magpie I always stay still and wait for a bit.

Thanks team...,those couple is just coming few weeks ago,and start chasing my pet  Falcon usually playing around the house,I love falcon &Hawks they help farmer controlling rabbit population, but when the bastard magpies coming they scare & moving somewhere.

Actually I really want take that shot from 100+yards that's my goal shoting with spriger,bit ambitious but pretty sure it can be done one day   ;D, This Chinese spriger is pretty accurate in my hand, after I chop the barrel from 18" now only 11.5" it change the diet,usually I feed her with H&N ftt,now she like barracuda better. Maybe something to do with barrel length.

It's a good looking gun. Interesting about diet. I have found barracuda good in most of my guns, and always have a tin handy.

Cheers team,its been busy making silage & bailage recently. Its not bad looking gun I got it from H&F store 6 years ago same age with the nzairgun.com forum.

After 4+years shoting hundreds rabbits & posums it broke the main spring, so I sent it to youngs AG and bring her life back.
