Polartec Thermal Pro sweater - Beretta

Fleece is the pigeon shooter’s best friend, but, let’s be honest, it isn’t the most attractive material, and when it comes to gifts you want there to be a bit of a ‘wow’ factor on opening. The new Polartec Thermal Pro sweater solves the problem. The smart, jacket-style 300 fleece has a ribbed, knitted appearance on the outside with a fleece interior, and is guaranteed to keep you cosy while looking smart. It is fast drying and breathable. Available in sizes S-3XL.

RRP: £139.95

Clear Pigeon cartridges - Gamebore

Gamebore’s re-engineered Clear Pigeon has been developed in conjunction with our own pigeon expert, Andy ‘Crowman’ Crow. Building on its classic Clear Pigeon, Gamebore has fine-tuned the load to deliver that same performance but at longer range. Designed with the pigeon shooter in mind, to provide high quality at a competitive price without sacrificing on performance, patterns or knockdown power. Available in both plastic and fibre wad options, 30g and 32g loads, and tested for use in semi-auto guns.

RRP: From £249.75 per 1,000

Si 12 semi-auto - Marocchi

Semi-autos are great for pigeon shooting, and the Si 12 from Marocchi comes in at an affordable price point with some very attractive features. Italian-built, lightweight and elegant, the gun features a new reloading system with a super simple mechanism to minimise maintenance. A great shot pattern is helped by the St Etienne steel barrel, which is designed to provide powerful and precise distribution of pellets. Available in 12-bore with 25”, 26” or 28” barrel. Comes with five choke tubes.

SRP: £877

Classic flask - Stanley

You can’t beat a hot flask of soup on a cold day

in the hide, and why look further than the ultimate flaskmaker that’s been in business since 1913. Stanley’s classic flask is made of stainless steel with a durable rust-proof finish, and features a heavy duty handle, double-wall vacuum insulation, and an 8oz lid that doubles as a drinking cup. This beast will keep its contents hot for up to 24 hours – if you’re spending longer than that in the hide, you have issues.

RRP: £36.99
