    Banded Goose

    I shot a Pink on the Solway 20 years ago, that had a ring that sits on my keyring to this day. I sent the details to the BTO (london SW7) and they sent me all the details of where the bird was rung, where it had been spotted and sent me a certificate with more details and coordinates of the birds movements.

    Hft Which Gun ?

    Yes, perfectly good gun for HFT but shot count is a little low so if you don't get many stoppages where you have to shoot the round off into the ground you should be able to complete a 30 shot course. We have a club that meets every Sunday in Martley Worcester (Nomads) so feel free to come over any Sunday around 9.30.

    Huge Fire In London

    Not sure what news channel you are watching but I see nothing like what you say. These people are in shock and of those being interviewed (apparently muslims) are all regaling the horror of what they have seen. Agonising was the word that one chap reported and I can only imagine the scene he described. I understand the block was recently converted to gas.

    What Is It !!

    These stats.. without sounding arsey..the 3 misses they average, is it always the 40+ yarder's? I would say that it's the 15mm kill at up to 25 yards that catches most of them out.

    What Is It !!

    Look at some stats. The best shooters in the country often take 30 shots every Sunday morning. Their targets are anything from 8-45 yards. Their longest shots will be kill-zones from between 30mm & 40mm somewhat larger than the 1" kill that we look for when hunting. They average around 57 so that's three misses. They practice a lot, are very consistent with some of the best equipment out there. They are supremely confident and they have to take the shot. The one thing they do not have to think about is movement of the target and that for me is the key reason for keeping it to a maximum of 40 yards. No matter how good/confident you think you are you have absolutely no control over what the quarry is about to do.

    Birmingham Slang?

    13/14. Those are not Brummie slang terms, they are yamyam (Black-country) terms, a world away from Brummies.

  13. I sold one on behalf of a friend very recently. I dont know a great deal about it but on the BBS there is a bloke called badgerginger who I believe does have some info on these things. If you are a member (or join) he might be helpful. Here are some pics of the one I sold on.

    Wonder What Killed It (L.s/w ) ?

    Lessers have no red on the body, I think there's a bit of blush on that one at the bottom. LSW is the size of a sparrow,
