Where there are chickens there are usually rats. That’s bad news for the owner of the fancy fowl, but great news for Terry Doe, former editor-in-chief of Airgun World, who has a load of new kit to deal with our pest problem. Unfortunately the quality of the image through the Infiray day/night scope and thermal means we see more than just where to put the pellet, it gives us a dark insight into what these rats are happy to gnaw on… their friends and relations.
Rats don’t mind a bit of other rat for a protein-packed evening meal. Terry’s efforts at the Bisley air rifle range pay off and nothing gets past him. However, the bucket load of rats we gather at the end doesn’t tally with what we shot. Rat is definitely on the menu tonight.
