  1. This is about the same for me. One time On renewal of my cert I asked for an extra silencer and was told that I couldn't have another one on my cert because I could just use the one that I'd got on the other rifles.! On the next renewal the FOE was totally the opposite. He suggested me having a different silencer for every rifle and a spare slot in case I wanted tò get something different. They just make it up as they go along. The trouble is that no one has got the want or the balls to sort stuff like this out. They renewed my European firearms pass just a few months before Brexit. It'
  2. The situation that we now face is down to apothy from the sporting community and mainly the shooting organisations. The time I realised this was at a game fair when basic were there represented by a couple of Gillies and a young bloke who was more of a car salesman. All they were interested in was trying to get people to take out a basic credit card. When I did see someone who looked more like a country squire in a driven shoot than a bloke who went rabbiting and pigeon shooting. All that occupied his attention was the new range rover is basic livery he was showing off to some other bloke
  3. It's strange that only yesterday I dropped round to a friend's who is also a gun nut just before the light went. About a year ago I gave him a BIG stack of old shooting times. Some of them going back to the late seventies. Recently he had been reading throught them and he said that the golden age for us was the early 80s towards 2000 and that we had, had the best of it. He is a bit outrageous and shoots as much as he can. All of my neighbours would be horrified if the knew A. That I had guns, B. That I had.... stocks of powder, primers, ammunition, shotguns and rifles.!!!!!!..... he mus
  4. Is there any mention in this jungle of words as to how much a licence would cost.? What any criteria would be. ? Would these laws prohibit / include having a spaniel or a lab to go rough shooting with.?
  5. Super day. At least you had birds in the sky. It's bad when you set up on a cold windy day and they all decide that the field next door was better feeding.
  6. You can't just take a picture of a garden hedge and make out it's a hide. Well you can but that don't make it a hide, but you could hide in it, but it would be a ......t to shoot out of.
  7. AND, poor quality veg at that. Just total Vermin.
  8. Even the tiger can't stand the blighter. You can almost see the lips curled back in distaste.
  9. Just trying for a second hand unit.
  10. There's the wind to consider also. But it's a different angle to know how much lift and rattle one near or even a bragging take out.
  11. It's more a case of trajectory drop to get the bullet on target. .22lr std vel is used for nsra target shooting at 100 mtrs outdoor. There's plenty of energy and accuracy available. I've shot mine on a 600 yard range. Took a bit of trial and error looking for the dust impact down range and the bottom of the scope crosshair was about a foot optically above the top of the butts bank .... so maybe 20..30 ft of drop ( not going to get into an argument about drop, ect) but when I found the point I could consistently put them in the black. The simple way is to go out, set up a chunk of wallp
  12. I am looking for a 410 conversation kit for a MEC 600 mk5
  13. Yeah I've had those. I sent them back with a covering letter about leadless cartridges.
  14. Aging and physical problems are a real drag down. I got slowed down by an operation on my shoulder for a rotor cuff tendon injury. With the time waiting for the operation and the healing time it was nearly two years.! Then I've had a ruptured Achilles tendon which has been over a year. I am looking towards an operation for repair. But apparently there is quite a high risk of serious problems so I may be looking for a piggy back.!
  15. Or going backwards and forwards over to Europe with belly tanks. I don't know about how they tax their fuel. From memory I think that I was told the ww2 petrol was blue and they called it pool petrol.
