  1. As is all too often the case, opinions are frequently trotted out on these forums as if they were fact. And whilst I’ve no desire to “pee on anyone’s parade”, or to speak ill of the dead, it’s important that when this happens those who have actual first-hand knowledge and are still fortunate enough to be able to still tell the tale, should at the very least attempt to put the record straight. Otherwise history will be rewritten…. and sadly in some instances rewritten very badly. I was fortunate enough to be a close friend of Bert’s from the early 1970’s up until his death in June 1995. Al

  5. Afternoon lads First post over on this side of the forum so here goes, it's been a long while since I last owned an air rifle, 1978 to be exact and it was a lovely brand new bsa airsporter .22 calibre bought new from Linley Bros in Leeds (which has now sadly gone out of business ). Now almost 40 years on and having recently retired i have ,for the past couple of months or so , been seriously looking around for another air rifle, i did a good bit of research on the different types, models ,and manufacturers available and decided to go down the second hand route and keep a lookout f

  7. Foxdropper Unlike so many others, I don't come on here to be contentious or to argue, I have far better things to do with my time. I'd like to think that in most things I say and do, I always try to be honest and base my comments on my own experiences rather than those of others. Clearly you have some doubts about that and you obviously don't know me very well, if at all. As I said previously, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and it's right that it should be that way, but if we're to fall back on old cliché's I'd suggest "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing" is prob

  21. Unlike yourself, I am privileged to have met ALL the names mentioned,...and I would have to agree that Chapman, Newcombe (and most definitely) Bert Gripton, knew the score as regards working dogs....as for Plummer,.well,...in all honesty,...I could not say the same...

  22. Just walk around with the ferrets this morning just enjoying our walk and the dog was a pleasure. He did every thing to perfection keeping in nice range checking on me where I was. Big forestry of young tree's so at times on my knees looking up the rows to catch a glimpse as he crossed over checking out bits of scent. There was scent about but in such a big block biit of a needle in a hay stack job I liked the way at one point he heard a magpie chatter and went off to check if charlie was sneaking about he seems to have sussed that one out. I keep showin

  25. Wow!! What a pile of crap!!! Horrible.....just horrible.... JUST KIDDING PAL You made a bloody good choice mate. I've had the full length and the carbine in .177 and couldn't fault either of them. My full length loved bis mags to bits....i mean crow head shots at 65 yards kind of accuracy. I didn't have the carbine long enough to really push it but it was more capable than I am that's for sure pal I'd love to say that I moved onto a better rifle in buying the bsa r10 supercarbine but my ears wont take the barrage of abbuse heading my way so i will keep my mouth sh

  28. She was 3 generations back from the Blindman and 4 generations from the General. My point is I've heard people go on about these dogs down from Bert Gripton stuff. One terrier from his stuff was bred into the lines way back in '62. A decent bitch for sure, but this stuff was built on local terriers and hunt terriers throughout Munster mainly and sometimes further up the country...

  40. Seems all us old bxggers that did ground works,hand digging humping bison beams etc etc are knackered. Bet you were like me jeans and a short T shirt and the old boys used to say " you want to cover your back boy you get a bad back" wish i had listened. Retired now and went to help out a farmer who done his back the other day so what did I do, yea pulled my own back and it went down my leg after two days. Like other lads said though kept moving took pills for a two or three days, won't keep taking them as they can bxgger you up. Not to bad at the moment unless I'm bent over for sometime doing
