Another shot of the bull rides.I reckon these blokes are mad.
On the Saturday 24th for my birthday my daughter & partner took me to a rifle club and i had multiple shots at targets.I hadn,t had a shot for 40 years and thoroughly enjoyed it.I was taught to shoot from 8 years of age on dairy farm and at 10 years of age i would shoot on my own and it was more or less expected that one would bring home a rabbit or two to supplement the food supply.If it hadn,t been for rabbits lfe would have been a lot harder.
Another lovely action shot Peter, like you I learned to shoot at an early age on my dads farm, I had a circa 1940's Webley & Scott 410 gauge garden to learn with, I've never fired a gun of any kind since leaving home:)

There's nothing like watching the action at a rodeo.

@pcoulson Thanks Peter.I had a few different 22 caliber rifles ,the last one being a 15 shot Miroku lever action and a Boito under & over 12 gauge shotgun for the ducks.

I often intend going to the rodeo to take some shots and haven't got there yet.

Hope you had a nice Christmas and New Year Peter.
