Beretta 687 EELL Classic

687eellclassic_enhanced001

The 687 EELL Classic is Beretta’s 680 top of the line over-under shotgun.

It features highly ornate engraved side plates and a premium grade Turkish walnut stock that gives it a true heirloom quality.

While certainly a handsome firearm to look at, the Classic also shoots exceptionally well – consistently reporting well in technical and shooting assessments conducted around the world.

With a weight of 7 lbs (12 bore version) and with the point of balance right at the hinge-pin, the 687 EELL comes up naturally to the shoulder and is very “pointable” and easy to swing smoothly.

While not inexpensive, the 687 EELL offer potential buyers the opportunity of owning a premium quality over and under shotgun for an affordable price.

Shooting Parties of Yesteryear

Prince of Wales at Highclere Castle 1895

Prince Albert Edward at Highclere Castle

The indulgent shooting parties of the Edwardian era where the pre and post shooting dining and drinks parties were possibly even more important than the days in the field, seem to have long passed.

Highclere Castle (better known as Downton Abbey to many of us) was renovated extensively just for the weekend visit of HRH Prince Edward and his “close friends”. The catering and drinks bill for that weekend ran into the staggering 1,ooo’s of pounds.

Over indulgent? Quite possibly.

In these more austere times, most Guns are pleased to partake of a delicious shoot lunch or dinner – usually without the port and cigars – and be on their way home. All a bit sad really.

Does that mean the more social shooting scenario of yesteryear should be forgotten and not emulated ever again? I sincerely hope not.

Lead in shooting – the various techniques discussed

Lead is one of the most talked about and often misunderstood principles of shooting at moving targets. We all know we have to aim in front of the target but the question is how much and how do we get the barrels into the correct position at the time of pulling the trigger. And let’s not forget the all important follow through in our swing – a most critical element of the shooting sequence.

Here the various techniques for applying lead are discussed and demonstrated by Mike Yardley.
