    Air Arms S410 Fac .22

    I had the same problem a couple of years ago, found the pellet group would raise the more shots I took. I sent it back for testing but they simply put it on the Chrono and put ten shots through it, bloody waste of time. Tried all the different pellet variants with no luck, sorry to say I got rid in the end and bought a .22lr. I've not had to zero in 6 months.
  2. could it of not been a farmer,with a shot gun ? Good thinking but if i was a betting man and i am not i would say a pair of white trainer wearing chavs are to blame The vet said they where air rifle pellets but I agree it would make more sense to be a shot gun wound. I'll let her know. Thanks
  3. I found an 12 month old injured Saluki x on Tuesday in the Standish area of Wigan, it turns out it has been shot 17 times with an air rifle, shattering his femur and puncturing a lung. All the shots where at his back end so this wasn't done to kill, this was done for fun. Follow this link to see the dog and X-rays http://www.facebook....50575895&type=1 Cash reward being offered for information leading to an arrest.
  4. Cheers pal, least I could have done mate. I'm determined to put these f****rs in court, if any one recognises the dog PM me please.

  8. Just though I'd let you all know that after reading many a good review I decided to invest in a pair of Aigle Parcours wellies. They where considerably more expensive than I had paid in the past but I thought you would pay for what you get. My last pair where Avon Muck Boots which where OK but the sole wore down at a shockingly fast rate, 12 months and they where goosed. The Aigle where fine for a few weeks and then they sprung a leak on the right boot, around where the sole is bonded to the boot, I contacted the seller as I bought them off ebay and was told to return them so he could take a look as in his words he had sold 1000's and this was only the second pair with a problem. I bought myself a £7.00 pair of boots from Windsors to be going on with and paid £15.00 to return the Aigle and fair enough the seller sent a replacement pair back within a couple of weeks. That was 9 weeks ago and after only light use (2 dog walks a day) both boots are leaking around the toe this time. I have contacted the seller again and will keep you posted of progress, there is no way that I am so unlucky that I get the only two pairs that leak out of 1000's the only conclusion I can draw is that there is a design fault with the Parcours, I can't comment on the rest of the range. The ironic thing is that the £7.00 pair don't let a drop of water in. This is the problem with buying off the net, you might save a few quid at the time but it costs every time you get a problem and have to send stuff back, you can't beat being able to pop back to the shop if you get a problem. Well all be moaning when all the shops have gone bust due to internet sales.

    wellies!!

    Dead comfy, really warm but if you wear them daily the sole wears out in no time at all as the rubber is so soft. Disappointed.
  10. Another great article, please keep them coming. However it is with regret that I can't see our present or future generations being tempted away from the trappings of urban life. I think many would agree that our species will eventualy destroy itself, I also believe this is the way it should be, all previous inhabitant of this planet have eventualy ceased to exist to make way for the next.
  11. Fantastic, itellectual and thought provoking article. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
  12. The cairn has caught 2...a couple o shakes and its good night rabbit! Yes i let them eat them, no point in wasting it but like i say, i'm not intentionally hunting so just wasn't sure on the law. A lot of dog walkers must find their dogs take off after a critter, FENTON anyone? lol. Just wanted to know the situation thats all. Cheers. If your dogs are eating the rabbits whole, beware of liver flukes!
