    lee,tees valley,yes,i take it since she was just 20 days and now it's 35 days and very lucky and happy,for i and my wife love it as our kid "yeah,lee you can see her on a persian carpet,where just millionaires can put their a$ on ;D ;D :D ;) "!!!as a matter of fact,she need her mother but surely she feel secure beside us and never feel loneliness in my home. now,she plays a lot and most of nights i have to getting up and playing with her.

    alex,it's a german short haired pointer .we dont have real breeders here in iran,but the mother of my dog is a pure GSP and the father is a mix of GSP and british shorthaired pointer,therefore maybe there is some treatments of british on it,but the characteristics illustrate that there is lots of similarities between sasha "my dog" and her mother,even color . there is a linkage between color treatment and some GSP qualities as i read in some references . any way,both father and mother was good gundogs and amateur breeder tried to find the best.

    hey Ron,good job!!!glad to see a friend on chukar hunting :D ,did you shot them on the ground when they drank water ;) :eek: ??this is the only time a person can shot 4 just with one shot! ;D :eek: LOL,no really good photo,you scarcely can find chukars in the fields in iran,they are living in wild mountains and just come to lower areas to drink water and ....what size of lead do you use for them,we usually have few chances to choose a cartridge,shot shells are usually made in iran and Turkey,Turkey made are usually overloaded and not very good for upland and iranian are a little bit better,but we prefer to change them .i reload them my self with several amount of gunpowder for different seasons,1.3 or 1.4 gr. for early season and 1.5 to 1.6 for late . but i heard that's illegal in some countries reloading shot shells. if i could buy lot of guns,changeable chokes,variable cartridges,maybe i never do that,although it's enjoyable. guns are very expensive here,a range from 1000 us $ to 100,000 us $ :eek: in some cases,they are not holland & holland,just simply a doubled barrel browning in iran costs more than 20000 us $, i bought my iranian shotgun 2000 $ many years ago.
    Daniel callan,good photo,how ever i have seen all of them in FB ::) ;D ;) !!very nice

    Hey Babak! Our country for chukars looks exactly like yours! ;) The pics were taken at the bottom of a huge mtn range of nothing but rocks cheat grass and sage, but the birds come down to water at a ditch- ;)


    And yes, we reloard here as well. I used to have a big automatic press for reloading, but have gone back to more traditional ways of loading by hand with a "lee-loader" set, which is a small set of tools and sizing dyes to reload shells by hand. Its plenty for the amount of shooting i do. My ol shotgun in the picture cost me 285.00 about thiry years ago,, and i think its only up to about 400.00 these days lol! Its not a fancy weapon, but its one of those guns that fits me so well that i rarely miss- its only a 20 guage, but i tear up the birds less with it..



    and Yes rdasbro,,,,,Sally-o got a work out lol!!!

    well,great to hear all of them,yeah i've seen some videos of chukar hunting in idaho where hunters walked in mnts similar to our climate,but the other movies show hunters in flat private ranges for semi-domesticate pheasants and chukars,yeah i no u,you're man . your gun is a great one,very older american shotguns selling for 20000 $ or more in iran,where a medium income of families is lesser than 500$,horrible.

    That is horrible!! I guess they want to keep the amounts of weapons small there! Here, you can go into just about any Big store or sporting goods shop and buy a CHEAP shotgun for very little, and the cheap ones shoot the same as the expensive ones, just not as pretty lol!
