Pigeons, all at the ball-trap!
It took you one morning, getting up. By being taken for a pigeon by politicians, by journalists, by your neighbor of the fifth, you end up seeing red. The situation would shatter the eyes of a blind man. The wall is straight ahead, we are on the train and there is no driver. The pigeon is over. The pigeon, it is you who will make it fly in brilliance when the time comes, to take back the controls. For that, nothing more simple, all to ball-trap!

When you go to fill out the form, you can explain that you are motivated to try this sport (you have seen a video or a report on the subject), you do not yet have a rifle, and the most Comfortable Belly Band Holster but it will soon be the past …

Anyway, the person in charge of selling the license is not going to do a neighborhood investigation, its purpose is to refourge you the small piece of cardboard, point bar. Do not take a subscription to a balltrap club, it is often very expensive, and this is not the purpose of the maneuver. Say you will notify when the time comes, you will make a punctual try, to see. The license alone will cost you about fifty euros, which is much cheaper than a shooting license or a hunting license, and it is especially less binding. The shooting clubs are in the sights of the state (reinforced surveillance of the shooters), the hunting license is quite expensive and requires training as well as the passage of a theoretical and practical examination.

A few weeks later, you can withdraw the Holy Grail. The small card will have to be stamped by a doctor, who will surely raise the eyebrows “Du balltrap, what a funny idea, is it nice? “. But yes, it’s nice, you’re going to do with friends, we’ll lend you an ad hoc weapon and you’ll make a good barbecue with sausage, no worries!
Once the license has been validated by the doc ‘, you can legally purchase all C category weapons and ammunition for the current year. You can go to your favorite gunsmith who will be very good advice, or order online, sites are not lacking. Let’s go to the basics, what to choose? For the “pigeons” that interest us, two calibres will attract our attention, because of their availability and their versatility.

First of all the sacrosanct caliber 12, used in balltrap and by a majority of hunters. If you are a woman or of low consistency, go your way, this caliber will be too violent to be mastered safely. I advise against the semi-automatic models (they stop) and the mono-blows (impractical). Opt for the good old two shots, superimposed or juxtaposed cannons, if possible with ejectors (the cartridges are ejected automatically when the rifle is broken). Its qualities: Unrivaled firepower, possibility of firing bulk or bullets for very large game (pigeons up to several hundred kilos).

Then comes the 22 Long Rifle (22LR). Do not rely on the small size of the ammunition, placed between the two eyes, they can make fall a buffalo. Excellent small caliber of defense, one can easily hunt the “pigeon” up to a hundred meters (with training and a scope of shooting or can hope to reach 200 meters). A non-existent recoil, low sound signature (inaudible with a moderator of sound), high availability … A rifle with manual repetition embellished with chargers 10 rounds and a thousand ammunition will do ample work.

You will send by mail the Cerfa to your prefecture which will issue you a receipt under 1 to 12 months (sometimes more, do not hesitate to relaunch them gently by telephone). Always keep the original invoice and the receipt in the presence of the weapon. Even when your license expires, you can keep your weapons and ammunition (you will not be able to redeem them anymore, except if you take back a license). I remind you that carrying weapons is prohibited unless specific authorization, no fatwa against you will justify the wearing of a coach gun in your pants. Transport is authorized from the home to the stand. Whether at home or on a trip, I advise you to equip your guns with code-trigger guard locks, remove the chargers and remove the breech (for guns, simply disassemble them in two Or three parts). We will make sure that no cartridge has been accidentally forgotten. If you have children or teenagers at home, hide and lock the ammunition in a key chest.

You are equipped, ready to face the world of tomorrow. We may retort that I also give the trick to our enemies, but I think they did not expect us to arm themselves to the teeth. And I have the impression that the bearded are not so numerous on the ball-trap files, would they be re-bribed by patriots at the time of the application of inscription? A gunsmith has let me know the thing.

If the situation degenerates, it is probable that the State is seeking to recover all the registered weapons, as in 1942, but if we get there, it is that chaos will already be installed. It would not be surprising if you were robbed and your weapons disappeared … Is it the pigeons? A wit, greeting
