The difference? “The buttstock is shorter, the pistol grip less voluminous and steeper, the buttplate softer and differently shaped, the buttplate higher and straighter – than with the stock “for men’s figures.” Jennifer Reichelt smiles, because she sneers a bit when the talk turns to the gender difference in hunting. No wonder: women are still clearly outnumbered in the woods and meadows – but they are catching up. And they are in no way inferior to the hunters – without denying their femininity.

.308 Win. is her caliber here, and the break-barrel rifle is such a wonderfully light and manageable gun that sometimes you could almost forget it’s for shooting. “I don’t like to lug around a lot of stuff, my equipment is as closely matched to the hunting task as possible. ” What she appreciates about the lightweight break-barrel rifle is the combination of the straight stock and the universal caliber – both of which combine to provide moderate recoil: “You know how lightweight rifles tend to kick at times…” No, nothing kicks here in .308. A good team and each made of special wood: the dog, the Jenny – and the break-barrel rifle.
