    Please help to 'hear out' from this sound samples

    Greetings everyone.

    Can anyone help me to hear the words which are marked with (?) in these two sound samples:

    Sample1:
    http://www.rammara.ru/samples/sample1.mp3

    First of all, before we actually show you some of the (?) which we're going to be shooging

    Sample2:
    http://www.rammara.ru/samples/sample2.mp3

    I prefer to shoot with the 28 inch and this is a fine example here (?) shot gun the type we would use with the single (?) trigger, (?) stock, a very nice gun as well, actually.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I prefer to shoot with the 28 inch and this is a fine example here of a Browning over-and-under shot gun the type we would use with the single selective trigger, pistol-grip stock, a very nice gun as well, actually.

    In example 1, either he's just having a slip of the tongue/mumbling, or he is saying "targets [one of which/wondering which] we are going to be shooting".

    But it's just not clear enough for anyone to be able to do a good transcription. Maybe with Audacity if you slowed it down a bit. But I wouldn't bother, he's probably just slipping a bit.

    Haha, Rockzmom's got the old weapons terminology nailed lol! Do you own one yourself?

    Thanks everyone, your help is very useful.

    Please, check another one (possibly not the last one ):
    http://www.rammara.ru/samples/sample3.mp3

    And this (?) point at the Tanya's? gun she's using here. The one she's using. She has opted for the automatic gun which is very - which is actually ideal for women to shoot and also youngsters. The gun is operated by gas so it reduces recoil and it's very nice to shoot, very comfortable to shoot. As you see (? a name perhaps, but I don't catch it) on then ... there is another over and under just like the one I have. And he's been shooting about 8 month now and he's opted for the 28 inch version of an over and under. Most of the guns nowadays are fitted with the (?) system which actually screws inside the muzzle end of the gun. This type of gun is actually ideal for a beginner because you have the variation in (tube changing?). You can shoot skeet(?) with it, you can shoot sporting clays and you can even shoot (?) in some cases.

    2nd voice: OK, the gun is empty

    Yeah he speaks with a Yorkshire accent, or some Northern English accent anyway. A lot of those accents are only fully comprehensible to people from the same area. Luckily he doesn't speak it that strongly, but he mumbles a bit from time to time.

    One more please:
    http://www.rammara.ru/samples/sample5.mp3

    This is a Winchester, one ounce, a load? which is now (is compulsory?) to be used in all sporting clay events. Ah. It’s filled with the one ounce of shot. It’s very nicely used, it’s very soft on the shoulder, not likely (?) we used to use… before this (?)

    The remaining question mark is probably the brand name of a gun. It sounds like "Anthonate". I don't know much about hunting, so I can't guess better than that.

    This man is a pretty good example of how native English speakers do strange things with the grammar when speaking...

    Is he really saying "one ounce of shot"? Is that the right terminology and doesn't it sound more like he's saying "one instance" although that would be a weird thing to say....?

    As I understand 'a shot' means a load of lead pellets in the cartridge.

    As for that last one (?) I hear 'alternate' or something like that.

    I think it is "fibre-only [g]rounds/grinds"
    not so sure about the "grounds though, and the sentence doesn't make a lot of sense.
    Is there a longer extract somewhere else?

    Normally I have no problem understanding British English by reasonably clear-spoken native speakers. This is tricky because it's such a specialised field.

    Is this work, are you able to say why you are having to do these strange transcriptions?

    Oh and the bit in the earlier transcript that is still unclear,

    "the shoulder, not like the _______* we used to use before......"

    *Antonathe or Anton8 or Antoinette (bad English pronounciation of this French name).

    I don't think it's "alternate". The sound of the A in the beginning of alternate, in British pronounciation, is completely different from the word here.

    Well, it's a part-education, part - a moontime work. I've a relative who's caught in sporting clays and he brought me some videos with awful sound quality and asked me to provide Russian subtitles for them. He also said that he would pay for my pains. Normally I would not have taken such a project but he's a relative and he helped me a lot in the past, so I agreed.
    If only the audio track was a bit clearer... I'm using Sony Sound Forge to amplify it which doesn't add to the quality, I'm afraid.

    As for the greater fragment, it goes like this:

    Lead shot that has not being alloyed with an adequate amount of antimony (сурьма) deforms easily. Soft shot deforms as it is fired which results in gaps in the pattern due to wasted pallets too far outside the pattern to be effectively aimed at the target. All trap loads contain 3 percent of antimony whereas most competitors settle for 2% or less. The extra antimony makes all the difference.
    Most of our clay targets loads use the famous AA wads. Winchester produces five of wad loads for five of (?) (that fragment).
