  4. Thanks Flynn, Desert bred, Trenchfoot and Peterhunter, etc. When you have an old car, and first the clutch goes, then the handbrake cable needs renewing, it's not starting when it's cold and you doubt that it will pass it's MOT, you know it is time to take it to the scrap yard and get something newer. Well that is sort of where I am at,, the scrapyard beckons. But it will not be for a while yet. A push start will still get me going!. I just hope that many of the new generation of working dog owners will have as just long a coursing career as I have had (I had my first Lurcher in 1961) and will meet as many great coursing men/women and dogs as I have. Having said that you must ALL fight for your sport. you must follow the example of Flynn and members of the AWL. Through the AWL you all have a voice on the Council of Hunting Associations, which leads the way in the fight,(WHICH IS NOT YET LOST) if we are not in the loop we will be discounted. Keep up the fight Besr regards Alan.

    Walshies Hornet?

    I had to wait for nearly a year to get mine. When first ordered I was told two months, after two months I was told another two months, after that I was told that they (Edger Bros) could not give a date. On repeated enquiries I was told that CZ would/could not supply until they had a order of 100 units!!. Edger Bros had placed an order of, I think 9 units but they did not know if this order was the first of the 100 needed or that they had nearly made it to the 100. So, it could be a few more weeks or another 6 months. I too was offered a Ruger, but I wanted a CZ. I then saw one on Guntrader brand new from a gunsmiths down south at £100.00 over list price. I bought it. It went against the grain to pay over the odds, but "Needs must, when the devil drives" Moral being: keep trying and do not accept anything other than what you want. The CZ .22 Hornet ? Best rifle i have ever owned.

  14. I have just bought a Sako Finnfire P94s varmint in almost mint condition. I know that it was kept in a gun safe for ten years due to the previous owner being unwell, hence the mint condition. I have two questions: 1/ When did Sako cease Making the Finnfire P94s and how do you establish how old the rifle is? 2/ In the past I have shortened the Barrel of my CZ 542 with no effect on how accurate it was. Can I do the same with a Finnfire, with it being a heavy barrel? I love the rifle and if it is best not to touch I will leave it well alone. It is shooting 1/4-1/2 inch groups at fifty metres with Eley Club and I don't want to mess with it if I can cause any problems. Advice please.

    New Lurcher Association On Facebook ,

    In reply to king, 1/ Setting up a website and a facebook page enables the AWL to keep members informed regarding the current situation of the repeal of the hunting ban, it also helps members keep up to date with the situation regarding the AWL, it is of interest to members and non members with articles, photos, information regarding Lurcher/Longdog breeding etc, it contains stories provided by members. To say that one website is pointless is to say all websites are pointless. If you are a loner, then I respect that, just as you will no doubt respect the fact that many people enjoy reading Lurcher work articles etc. The Hunting Life is a web site, a great web site, are you saying that it is pointless? It too has to have a income to survive. We do not advertise. our income comes from membership. Many people do not wish to poach or go on land without the permission of the land owner, ( I am not saying that you do) they wish to work their dog in a legal manner. To help these people, both by advice and by helping to repeal the hunting ban and at the same time to entertain them and allowing them to have say, this is the reason for the AWL. 2/ What do I hope to achieve? All of the above. 3/ Do I honestly expect folk to use their real names? No I don't! there is a very good reason for user names as you so rightly say. I use one myself. The reason I use my own name (in this instance) is because I stand by what I say and put my name to it, On many other web sites i use my user name. As regards your remark regarding dodgy folk, I agree with what you say. I am in the position of only having one dog, which, like me, has seen better days. It is just happy to sleep in front of the fire. 4/ Yes people should do just what they want and the success of the start of the AWL proves that many people will do just that and join the AWL Regards Alan.
