  1. Mixy " Disgusts and infuriates me "

    Thousands here, eat all the grass on the crofts, summat in their droppings that effects sheep too, big cull here last few years of grey lags and Canadas. Never bothered me but we get free ammo on goose cull scheme.
  2. I'm thinking at 15 you'd still need an appropriate adult to countersign too, preferably one who already has an FAC. As mentioned cabinet's are inexpensive, bigger the better in my opinion, then as you get more you don't need to upgrade. They last forever and a worthwhile investment, unless they decide to change the BS numbers, then we're all doomed. All FEO's are different and want different things, you'll only find out for sure when you get a visit, then they will be able to advise you and help.
  3. Ive used the online ones just for comparison of different ammo at http://gundata.org/ballistic-calculator I see now Sako and Hornaday have an app aswell as a few others, does anyone use any of these apps or online references. I'm sceptical about any calculations being accurate as there are too many factors to consider in the field aswell as different rifles. In a perfect world where we all have perfect conditions and rifles maybe, but we all know that's not the case. Thoughts?
  4. How times have changed

    They would come in your garden and lift it away on thier backs to the wagon, then return it. Some won't even empty them these days if the lid won't shut. They used to take anything left at the side of the bin too, as my old man discovered one day, even if you'd just propped it there for a while 😂 Everyone seemed a lot happier in the 50,60 and 70's, milkman would whistle, everyone would say "morning", the grocer, butcher and Baker would know you by name. We didn't need to recycle because we used it again or returned it! I could go on about the "good old days", but. Sure technology has improved our way of life, but the population as grown, and we're all wanting to better our way of life.

  9. How times have changed

    Sad but true, my grandad served in both world wars, unfortunately he didn't have chance to take photos, but his stories will stay with me forever.
  10. Big Brother Is Watching You

    This is the thing, all the big companies Google and amazon the worse, collecting everything you do/search to target you and sell your info, we have to agree to their terms to even own a device these days. We can't even decipher the terms and conditions, let alone have the time to read them, but can't use the device we pay for without doing so. Had a hard time recently with bank wanting my phone number, it's ok if I need to I'll contact you! No sir we need your mobile number..... Err no your not getting it! Your move. Technology a way to improve our lives, yeah right, more a move to control us.
  11. Deep fried pizza!

    At least our chippy has a vast vegetarian variety, deep fried pizza, battered if you like 😂 I'm not sure I want to try one though hmmm
  12. The Russians

    Kids here get free fruit when they want it breakfast break and afternoon, and p1-p3 still get free school lunch. Canny remember how much our lunches were as a kid, it was predicimalisation though.
  13. Miss fire.

    I ment to get back on this a while ago. I took it out a couple of days later when the air temperature was around 6c, without doing any thing to the bolt at all, fired fifty shots off down the beach, no misfires at all, or since. I'm not saying that there is no accumulation of crud, but as a general conclusion I am thinking a contributing factor was the -5 temperature. Without being able to remove the central pivot pin to gain access to the main spring and pin, I have a tin of Napier gun cleaner, so it will get a good blast, and hope it doesn't happen again. Thanks again for all your responses. Gav.
  14. Amazing talent, well done, again 👍
