Anti-Cull Queen Guitarist Brian May Outed on Deer Cull

Press Release from Barney White-Spunner, Executive Chairman Countryside Alliance Ireland [via ammoland.com]:

It came as some surprise last weekend to find that Queen musician Brian May had been leasing the stalking rights on his land. The news was broken by the Sunday Times, who found that he was receiving payments of £750 a year for the right to shoot deer on his Middlemarsh estate. Many other papers picked up on this story because of its significance since Dr May has become a figurehead of the animal rights movement. This is more than just irony . . .

My custom lever gun projects are still stuck in development hell. Grizzly Custom Guns is waiting for the foundry to deliver my octagonal barrel. Aqua Timber continues its search for a suitable piece of previously submerged 100-year-old birch for the stock. It’s been three years since I ordered a Smith & Wesson 500-firing lever gun from Big Horn Armory.
