    Just simple targets

    I was doing the maths meself. I reckon during an average week I loose off 50-60 shots - mostly paper punching and some pest control. That Impact would be the nuts. Basically fill & forget!

    600 shots. That is a plinkers delight! Sounds like the ultimate airgun.

    The leaves have fallen, the preparation is done.

    Brilliant rifles, 97's. Took me a while to fall in love with mine, but I now I rate it highly.

    C02 rifle advice

    Is that pump genuinely good? That's helluva price.

    Extreme distance at sub 12...

    A rat facing head-on drinking from a pond presents a perfect shot.

    Anyone from east Anglia?

    She looks lovely, though.

    Close range ratting is great fun. I did a job in a very small garden the other week and had no choice over the range which was 7 meters. That was 2 mildots of hold over on my hw97 and Hawke 4-16 ×50 combo through a Viper. About the very minimum I can get it to focus.

    What is it you specifically need help with?

    Crikey. Bet they're popular. I sold a hand-held agri laser to a rather eccentric man who wanted pigeons off his vegetables . It works for them, I can tell you.

    Putange mole trapping

    Good points well made. I use Putangues most of the time and I'm satisfied that an overwhelming percentage of the kills are humane. The only method of ensuring moles don't suffer from being foul-caught would be round the clock 24 hour monitoring - an impossibility. From a purely commercial perspective, 24 hour trap checks don't stack up either; time, diesel, etc. Mole catchers periodically get a bad press. Did anyone hear the recent phone-in on the Jeremy Vine show? A member of the public had seen a bunch of scissor trap handles sticking up whilst visiting an National Trust property and had been enraged by the fact that such an organisation would deign to 'persecute' wildlife in this manner. Of course, JV, being a confirmed urbanite, liberal, tree-hugging, bleeding-heart anti with zero understanding of country life, was fully on side, so when a certain prominent representative of the British Mole Catchers Association went on and explained that moles caused a lot of damage by breaking patio windows,(yes, a tiny minority of listeners knew she meant mole hills = stones + lawnmowers driven by idiots, but she made a right hash of it) her explanation was ridiculed. One good lad went on and spoke about Putangues, but to be honest, he was kicked to the curb by the thoroughly biased presenter. In short, some of the unelected self-styled (and as Torquemada says, self-serving) 'gurus' who purport to represent those who provide mole-catching services need to up their game considerably if they want to be taken seriously by anyone.

    Putange mole trapping

    Can you tell em to get a move on here in East Anglia! Starting to wonder if that dry summer did em any favours.

    Postie, this one took 4 weeks to catch. Very small garden bordered on 3 sides by a brick wall. He'd been operating next door where there was no permission to trap, and only making occasional raids on my customers lawn via, I assume, a fault or tunnel somewhere in the wall footing. As previously stated in this thread he was a real devious trap avoider and his demise was down to dumb luck on my part. This putangue was set vertically in a tunnel that went straight down, about eight inches below the turf. When I pulled it out, I was bemused to find the mole in this position until further investigation revealed he'd actually broken into the run from an adjacent tunnel, between the jaws and just above the traps trigger! So basically death by misadventure for the mole and a long awaited payday for me. Just goes to show the importance of persistance and the versatility of Putangues.
