Fieldsports Britain – we thrash a rifle to bits

Just how tough is your rifle? Paul Childerley takes a brand new Sako 85 Carbonlight, runs over it with an armoured personnel carrier, drags it through mud water, shoots it and sees if it fires at all, let alone straight. Find out how how he gets on. Meanwhile, Charlie meets one of the most dangerous men in Britain. Dr Mark Avery has worked harder than anyone to close down sport shooting in the UK. Charlie tries to find out why – what makes Avery tick – and what has he got planned next. David is on the News Stump plus there’s Hunting YouTube, all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain.
