It’s Paul Childerley’s last day of guided stalking on the Beckerings Park Estate, and he’s taking two first-time Chinese water deer stalkers out. Taking the early slot is Viking Arms’ Bob Macarthur, who’s hoping some lingering fog won’t put paid to his chances at a shootable beast. Then it’s the turn of Eley’s Tomas Atienza in the afternoon, with Paul selecting a doe for him to open his water deer account with.
Following that up, Wes Stanton, editor of Clay Shooting magazine, gets his hands on the Remington 1100 – nearly 30 years after he first shot one – to find out what’s changed. This semi-auto celebrated its 50th birthday last year, and it looks like there’s plenty of life left in it yet.
