  1. Hi all, I realise this may have been discussed before so apologise in advance. Now I understand that killing a rabbit has a lot to do with target placement rather than power etc but I just wondered if there was some way I could figure out what distance (dependant on pellet placement) a certain left Airgun will kill at. I’m new to FAC Airguns so not sure what ftlb I’m going to get as it probably depends what is available at time etc but when I get one I would like to have an idea what the max distance it will kill at once I’ve got it sighted and my pellet placement is acceptable to take on a kill. Cheers all
  2. Night vision or Scope mounted Torch??

    I love the idea of Thermal and used to work with Flir Cams so know how good Thermal is but they are way out of my price range I think.
  3. Thought I’d put the question out there as wondered apart from price the reasons why people went for NV Scopes over a Torch/Lamp? cheers
  4. Hi all, I’m looking to get a new Scope mounted Torch and seen the Tracer F900 for about £200 for kit. Just wondered if anyone’s had experience with them and are they ok? Cheers
  5. Extra Long (In Back) Shirts

    Cheers for that fella, I’ve always got thermals on underneath so not like I’m getting draft. But when it comes to taking coat off at dinner, I look like a scruffy teenager lol.
  6. FAC Airgun

    I’ve been to a local dealer today’s and had a look at some used stock. There was a Rapid Mk1 that actually took my eye and felt quite nice. Had quick fill adapter, was about 32ftlb, decent mod n scope etc. He did mention that there was a mk2 but didn’t really tell me difference if any apart from newer model. Anybody had experience with both and know main differences, pros n cons etc?
  7. FAC Airgun

    To be honest I did think about that but the only thing that made me lean against it was if I ever had to shoot somewhere without FAC approval then I wouldn’t have a air gun below 12flb. Still haven’t ruled it out though.
  8. FAC Airgun

    My permission (Due to its location) has only been signed off for use with a FAC Airgun. If it was signed off for more I would get a bullet gun. Cheers

  10. FAC Airgun

    Hi all, Ive been using a BSA S10 for a while now on my permission for Rabbit control. Recently found out that its been signed off by Firearms for FAC Airgun use. In result ive now put in for my FAC as well as my existing Shotgun. So ive now started looking around for what I'm going to buy but there seems to be loads available, and most I believe can be tuned up to 30-40 ftlb. Anyway I thought I would throw the question out to the experienced one and ask for advice on what would be a decent gun (Nothing stupidly expensive) will want scope, moderator etc, to get. I doubt I will be wanting to replace it soon so something that will do me through n through. Thanks in advance people.
  11. Hi all, Can anyone recommend the best place to get Country Shirts (For Beating & Shooting etc) which are extra long in the back? Not too fussed about sleeve length but generally they come long as well. I'm 6ft4 and am just sick of shirts coming out when out n about. I cant tighten my belt anymore lol. Cheers all
  12. Informing The Police

    Thanks all, yes I'm going to do it as he has requested but just wondered other people's experiences as never been asked to do it before but been approached a few times but my perm slip has always sorted things
  13. Informing The Police

    Hi all, Ive just gained some permission on some local land for Rabbits. The land itself has a few football & rugby pitches on as well as some open areas. The land isnt used in an evening and is closed to the public and gates are locked. Anyway ive had the relevant person sign a permission slip that I get people to sign and keep with my insurance just in case I ever get approached by the law or passer by to say I have the right to be on the land. They have requested that I inform the local police that I have permission and will be on the land occasionally. (Which I havent got a problem with and intend to do soon) My question really was if anyone else have ever approached the local police to inform them of your permission or have you just squared it with them if they ever challenge you? Cheers
  14. Anyone been to either Selby or Goldthorpes Fur n Feather Auction? I'm looking for some live rabbits for Dog Training
  15. Liquid Scent Opinions

    I think the idea is if you don't have constant access to land with game but you want the pup to get excited with rabbit or pheasant scent then you can use this on a dummy and pull it around the land to create a trail and then get the dog out.
