With only 32 shopping days left until Father Christmas comes down the chimney with that Purdey I have asked him for (fingers crossed), the time left to roam the shops looking for shooting related Christmas gifts for my family is fast running out.

I’m toying whether to get my father a clay shooting lesson or buying my brother-in-law a copy the ever popular Shooting Types by Bryn Parry, but when it comes to parting with my cash or coin I become convinced that I should be a little more adventurous in my purchasing and buy something else as well. The question is, what should I get?

If any of you have any ideas as to what I could buy I would be forever in your debt – but hurry, I’ll putting out the brandy and mince pie soon!
