Ladies, have you ever found yourself thinking you’d really like to give something a go, but are given the impression that it’s for men only and you might not be excepted – perhaps even made to feel out of place? Try giving clay shooting a go!
After Holts most successful ever sale in March of this year I then received the largest ever number of guns on my valuation day at Walcott, some 78.
In recent weeks I have been getting out after the pigeons. As soon as the shooting season is over many of the estates that have been off limits all season suddenly become open for business and the job of controlling the vast numbers of woodpigeons starts in earnest.
Holt’s have been called in to clear the premises for John Dickson of Edinburgh. Dickson, famous as the ‘Purdey of the North’, started in 1795 going on to make many memorable guns, notably the ‘Round action’.
Spring is such a time of expectation, it’s almost as if the whole of the countryside is just waking up.
