  1. There is a place here where there were hundreds and hundreds of rabbits then the railway workers turned up to electrify a line on the boundary. Within a fortnight they where all dead with myxy. Everytime the railways are involved anywhere where there are any rabbits myxy follows. Places i know where there were good numbers of rabbits and VHD made an appearance there has never been rabbits since.

    Don't you.....

    If i had to use one of those old crocks i would pack up shooting, especially if it was compulsory to wear that hat.

    Because you occasionally stalk deer with someone , that is good reason to own a 7mm and you don't need to have done the bullshit DSC1 course have a deer calibre either. Don't let them bully you into not having anything you have good reason to own.

    Apparently Koff and Yildiz both started producing guns together but fell out and went their own ways. Yildiz have been imported for a while now but Koff only recently. They are very good for the money full spec for about £475, i know several people with them and they are happy.

    Deer rifle recommends

    22.250 would do the job just fine, especially if you neck shoot them. I use a 30/06 which also does the job just fine.

    gun law

    I don't know where the myth comes from that says if a gun gets stolen "you're f****d". It simply isn't true. Every theft is taken on it's own merit and if you have taken reasonable precautions to prevent theft you have done your part. I know of several people having guns stolen and none lost their licence. One man had a shotgun stolen from his house that he had put in a cupboard while he nipped out somewhere. On his return he found he had been burgled and the gun stolen. He didn't lose his certificate because the house was all locked up and that was deemed reasonable precautions had been applied. So take every reasonable precaution you can to prevent theft as none of us want to lose our property to scrotes, but if you are unlucky don't think a certificate revocation is inevitable, it isn't.

    As stated the hmr is not the tool for 200yds . I personally don't like the calibre and replaced mine with a .17 hornet which was a good decision as far as i am concerned.
  10. AYA are good guns, however it will either be a yeoman or a no4 they are different guns. I have had a yeoman in the past and i currently own a no3 12 bore and a no4 20 bore.
  11. I can choose and operate the barrel i want to fire faster on a double trigger sbs than i can on a single selective trigger o/u.
  12. Most people learn to shoot at a clay ground these days and are taught using an o/u. The sight picture is different on a sbs so the vast amount of people stick with what they know which invariably will be o/u. This makes sbs gun users a minority so consequently the gun shops cater for whatever sells the most.
  13. Apart from my other guns i have a 12 bore AYA no3 sxs, a 20 bore AYA no4 sxs and a cracking little spanish .410 sxs. I quite like to shoot them aswell. Our syndicate captain runs a .410 only driven day once a year with the proceeds going to a local kids charity hospice. A lot of local shooters want to come and do this day as it is great fun, i use my .410 sxs on it and really enjoy shooting it.
