  1. What bird Is this ???

    Your probably right about that bud. A couple of months ago while I was out, the wife said that she heard a bang on the downstairs bedroom window, and when she looked, she said that there was a bird that looked just like the one above, sitting on the outside bench looking stunned and after a couple of minutes It flew off, John
  2. What bird Is this ???

    Yes, on the east norfolk coast
  3. Hi all Earlier this morning I looked out the bedroom window and saw a Hawk or something like that on the grass with a blackbird In It's claws (much to the wifes horror) I was just wondering If somebody could tell me exactly what bird this Is. I managed to take a couple of photos through the bedroom window with my mobile phone, although the quality of the photo's through the glass Isn't that great, Thanks lads, John
  4. Is this rabbit activity?

    Thanks for all the replies and Info lads, greatly appreciated, John
  5. Hi all Earlier today I went for a wander around one of the fields that Is part of my new shooting permission. This permission Is only for use with my HW100 air rifle due to livestock reasons. As for the recon, I didn't really see much around except for some digging/scraping activity In one of the edges of the field. My first obvious thought was rabbit, but then I realised that I couldn't see any rabbit droppings around the area of the recently dug earth. So I was just wondering If you guys could give me your thoughts on whether you think that this Is rabbit activity or maybe something else. There was the odd area around the field that showed rabbit droppings but as already mentioned, not near the recently dug earth. Here are the photo's that I took earlier of the above mentioned activity, John

  8. Hi all I have 2 scopes at home and I am trying to decide which one will be the best to fit on to my .177 HW100s. The rifle Is only ever used for pest control, mainly rabbits down at the stables and farm. Both scopes are of similar spec with one having a 30mm tube (RWS) I have heard good things about both of these budget scopes and was just wondering If you guys could share your thoughts, John Hawk eclipse : http://www.theairguncentre.com/sport-hd-ir-ao-2-7x32-314 RWS (also branded walther) https://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/RWS_4_12x50_Ci_Illuminated_MilDot_reticle_R12_Airgun_Scope/1865
  9. Hi all I was just wondering what size mounts I will need to fit a scope on to my HW100. The scope that I am going to fit to my HW100 has a 50mm objective lens and a 30mm tube. The mounts that I am looking to buy will probably be BKL or Sportsmatch. I have a feeling that I will need high mounts but I thought It best to check with you guys first, John

  11. Airgun Centre Essex

    Hi Countryboy I've bought a couple of rifles off them over the years and never had a problem. The last rifle was about 3 years ago and was a brand new HW100s combo and a 3 litre divers bottle. Each time I've been too the shop I have dealt with the boss man. By memory, I think his name is Pete. He has always come across as friendly and knowledgeable and has never rushed me into making a purchase. If you get to the shop near opening time, you are usually asked if you want a cup of tea or coffee. Well I was anyway. The shop isn't that big, but they do seem to stock a fair bit of stuff. Last year after about 2 years, my gun bag that came with my HW100 split at the seams. So I phoned up the Airgun Centre and was told to send the bag back to them with a copy of the receipt. About a week later a brand new bag arrived as promised. I'm sure that there are people out there who have had problems with them but I can only speak for myself, and to date, it is all good. All I would say is, if you ever drive up there go early, because they do get quite busy at times, John
  12. Hi all I've just realised that my 3 litre divers bottle that I use for topping up my HW100 is out of test. As I have recently moved to Mundesley, Norwich from Hertfordshire, I was just wondering if any of you guys could recommend a decent divers shop that will retest my bottle for me, and also do the occasional refill as well, Regards, John
  13. Thanks for the replies and advice lads John Too true. Don't really want to fork out for an alarm system anyway, but was told by the firearms department that because the garage is classed as an out building (although attached to my bungalow) I would need need an alarm thats connected to the house The problem I've got is, we have only recently moved in, and all the walls don't feel solid enough. When you tap them they feel hollow, like there's chipboard behind, and who knows what size gap before the actual outer wall. And definitely don't feel strong enough to hold a metal cabinet. The only other option will be to stick the cabinet in the loft, not ideal either. I won't be lifting it up there anyway, not with my back
