Global hunting Survey:

The Fieldsports Channel # Global Hunting Survey has appeared on line recently - and is worth a look on a quiet day.

A couple of results about us down here claim that the biggest users of bullets (per capita) are Aussies and Kiwis where 35% of us claimed to fire more than 1,000 per year. - Maybe a fair enough result? - certainly I and my mates in the Target Pistol shooting club would burn that much powder while claiming to also be hunters.

Interesting Video - But has Crappy Intrusive Music!

- and another interesting finding  - that is very logical when you consider the strict laws limiting real guns - is that the biggest ownership of air guns is UK and Ireland where 60% of hunters say that they own air guns.

Why do video producers feel the need to air rubbish music to overlay what they are showing us ??

- I've been completely put-off of watching local TV motorsport by the noisy modern 'music?' that is played - when what any true petrol-head would really like to hear is the roar of the engines and the smell of the hot tyres.

- Oh well - mustn't grumble eh - I'm just proving what an old fart I'm getting to be !
