    Around 60 years in the making

    .
    Yep; t'was huntin' grubs in the front lawn with a double barrel pop gun ; and .303 ex-army bullets .The popgun lived to hunt another day but we had to use the more standard (boring) cork ammo . They don't make popguns like that any more; you know, 'real steel' that could take the Australian conditions; not to mention the kids with real ammo .
    Mum was a little annoyed at being woken up from her daily afternoon sleep, but apart that, it was just another day on the big farm .

    Clever compilation - my Dad was a Gunsmith so early memories of firearms abound - we even had a 10 metre air pistol range down the passage and into the kitchen pantry - kids who visited soon learned to look left and then right after entering the front door !

    Air rifles; they have improved so much --- bit like comparing film and digital cameras
