Fieldsports Britain – all about shotguns for gameshooting

 

It’s everything (we reckon) you want to know about shotguns for pheasants, in this week’s show. Jason Doyle takes up Rizzini’s invitation to go shooting in Wiltshire, and finds out about the Italian gunmaker’s spectacular range of sporting guns. Meanwhile, gunsmith and Gunshop owner Dennis Stepney gives his honest appraisal on what to look for in a shotgun – size, length, weight and which bells and whistles to ask for – and price. Aaron brings election news on the News Stump, and Charlie’s Hunting YouTube leads on foxshooting, all of it in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
