    Putange mole trapping

    About 25 years ago (before I worked in pest control) I had the misfortune to work with a bloke who guarded his technical knowledge very closely. He was hugely insecure about losing his job, I was in my mid twenties and he was forty or so then. Well, this fella was the biggest shit I probably have ever met, he constantly tried to get everyone around him in trouble, he even went so far as to sabotage other peoples work (this was in the reprographic sector) and resisted ANY innovation to make the work easier and quicker and better. Anyway, after a few years there the company went into administration, and we all got laid off. I'm not saying he was solely responsible but he definitely contributed. He would be coming up to retirement now, and I have no doubt that if he is still alive (he was a fat f****r and smoked like a chimney) that he is still a miserable bitter wanker, and that makes me quite happy indeed. So here's to all the old school, never changing, the hard way is best, I'll take you all down with me b*****ds.

    Hushpower 410

    I got Eley No 6 cartridges. I have an unmoderated 410 already, and use it to humanely kill cage trapped foxes, but it is quite noisy, and I even used the subsonic cartridges in it to try and get the noise down. So primarily its for that, but at the moment I have a rabbit job on where there are houses very close and horses in a field behind as well. I couldn't get in a position to use my Air rifle effectively so the Hushpower will be getting an outing one night this week.

    Hushpower 410

    Got the wood one. It's nice. Says on the instructions that it takes 50-100 shots before the mod is "run in"... Can't wait to take it out, shame I have a tiny garden on a housing estate!

    Hushpower 410

    So I'm off to buy a new Baikal 410 hushpower this morning, been wanting a hushpower for the last few years... So wood stock or black synthetic? The wood is £35 cheaper...

    Squirrel bait

    I don't know.

    Squirrel bait

    I think mostly its use-by the big nationals by people who don't have the skills or time to trap. That's the only way I can think that it's going to ever be used because let's face it goes if you know what you're about trapping squirrels is a piece of piss.

    Pistol for rat dispatch

    I have a Springer pistol at about that power and it works fine.

    Pistol for rat dispatch

    A 12-ft lb rifle can kill a pigeon or a squirrel at 30 yds. You're talking about killing a captive mammal at distances under a foot. 6 ft pounds is way way overpowered for that distance.

    Pistol for rat dispatch

    At that range with that power you should be fine providing you get the shot placement right. Remember anything 6 foot pounds in a pistol at close range then you are risking severe ricochets and rebounds so a medium power pistol is actually the way to go to save yourself!

    Worst mole trap ever, for me ! (Putange)

    I don't believe that I have ever said it is an inhumane trap (although you do get the odd foul catch, as you do with every trap), I used it for many years before I found the putange, and was happy with it. However, I forgot just how like arguing with you on the forum is like arguing with someone with a learning disability, and for that reason I am out. Go and enjoy your buckfast and intellectual poverty with someone else.

    By your own admission you know nothing about this trap, so I hardly think you are qualified to have any kind of opinion on their efficacy or humaneness. Shhhh.

    And you need something better than that bloody peg to set it as well. It also looks like yours are a slightly different manufacturer than the ones I use as the loops around the top are at a different angle.
