    i have a PH 223, can you not adjust the set trigger? am sure i looked at it when i first had it? small little grub screw! i never use the "set trigger" as in the standard trigger is sweet as a nut for me..... plus on loading, i have had an issue once or twice, but i think it is me not pulling the bolt back far enough.......... only in the heat of the moment!

    .270 anyone got one?

    I lived in SA for ten years, where i bought my remmington .270 14 years ago, its now in the safe in the loft!! loud bang........ thats the last thing you are thinking about when you drop the buck, recoil- let the adrenalin sort that out. yes . when on the range you go home brusied, and you look daft in your earmuffs............... i used home loads and could clover three rounds at 100m............. after a while! Now, back here i am using my 223 for fox, so havent really used it on factory ammo. will do next year so best i get to the range and look daft my .270 trophy!

    young dog

    Thanks for the advice, because shes not mine, i dont see her that much, i know what you mean about egg it on a bit, because she with a 60+ year old woman, she getts the walks but not the play fighting that she probably needs. my own dogs (when i had them) were play fighting from a pup, so they got stuck in early on............ but now u guys mention it it makes sense. i may bag a rabbit and drag it round a bit, get her playing. dont know anyone with other dogs, and shes timmed anyway....... the hunt of a rat maybe too much for her, u know tail between legs and circuling your feet. cheers guys steyr

    12 months foxing?

    hey ezzy, i like the idea of the 1 miss and your out, it keeps your eye on the ball. my mate drives from oldham every weekend to go shooting, and it always seams to be me on the rifle and him lamping, so yes ............. like my miss spent youth on the pool table in the local pub! winner stays on! steyr

    12 months foxing?

    dont know why you wrote this here.......... i didnt ask. i am sure there is a thread on the right and wrongs of "hunting" with guns, dogs, bow and arrow. best u look for that. i hope u enjoy your "hunting" as much as i enjoy my vermin control. Oh and what i call hunting, is taking my 270 to SA and tracking an animal for a few hours then releasing the lead and wacthing the animal "fall right where you shot it", theres nothing worse than having to call the dogs in to track it down, much preffer a clean quick kill. and then a few beers to cool down, while the tracker prepairs the meat for the Braai. but hey thats my opinion! which i normally keep to myself. Yea GREAT SPORT!!! Shootin from cars gettin PISSED UP. . Protect the game birds by all means get rid for landowners. But do NOT try an call this SPORT!!!! . . I've just read through the whole thread,and,the only person to mention SPORT is you mate.The person that started the thread called it 'Vermin Control',so,best wind yer neck in cocker! Thanks martin! just to point out........... where does it mention cars? I think that was JOEDOG shooting from his van, well actual letting his 6 year old using his firearm. I think its a little young, but hey! And who is getting pissed up? If u mean about a few beers before a Braai, then that isnt getting pissed up................... thats having a social drink after a good days "HUNTING" and if you haven’t done that, then maybe u aint old enough! and besides if you are so angry ... maybe its best you dont have a gun! The aggression on this site from certain people has surprised me. Considering i was out the other weekend with the BB’s and a couple of dogs, everyone did their part , what they enjoyed........... good day for the guns, dogs and the dog owners. Thanks for all the totals its been interesting reading, and yes as i thought i am at the back............

    prices for pest control part 2

    i go lamping on foot when out on my own, can not be bothered trying to drive, hold lamp and gun out of a window, then the rabbit runs just to the left of the a pillar. so im looking for a series rag top and folding front window.......... sorted! until then lamping on foot is fine.......... unless you want the bag for the frezer. didnt you say its a golf course? should be fine for a car with right tyres. steyr

  11. right, i know i am going to be blasted to the rear end of this pole, but i am up to 17 this year and i bought my steyr 223 in septmeber at the midland game fair, so i still have a couple of months to go ............. so who's at the top? game keepers included but in a separate pole (u lucky buggers) as us poor gits have to work and do this as a hobbie. so 17 the start! (going by u turkey farm guys, i expect 3 figures) steyr

    young dog

    my inlaw has a 9 month jack russel type terrier, (her mother who is a jack russel had a fling on the beach) 1st trip out with her. she's a little timmed, wont dive through a hole in the fence or gate she sits there waiting ..... until i drag her through. 2nd, shot a rabbit, it squelled, she just looks at me! 3rd shot a fox cub, didnt kill it, put her in the hedge where it was, she had a sniff and came out............. dont want her to be a killer, as she plays with my little 3 year old, would like her to be like most jack russels, keen for the chase, and good on a rough shoot. any advice welcome cheers steyr

    open firearms cert

    Mr Logic. No Need as i have called my FEO, he says what you said. (and my gun shop) that if your licence reads WITHOUT the phrase "land deemed suitable by the chief officer of police" then it is my responsibility for where i shoot. i.e "its an open licence" if it says "land deemed suitable by the chief officer of police" within the conditions of your certificate then you HAVE to get permission by them to shoot on the said land. end of story.............. for me anyway, thank you North Wales Firearms department. so i have an open ticket for my 22rf, 223, and 270 for ranges only (at the moment) he said if i have land and want to shoot deer they will do an amendment to allow me to do this (after speaking, and accepting i am capable etc ect) thank you all. steyr

    open firearms cert

    Steyr, Are you happy that some bloke down the gunshop knows what your firearms department means by its conditions? Would it not be better to ask your FEO and get the full and complete information you need? My FAC states: "6. The 6.5x55mm Rifle and 6.5x55 Sound moderator and ammunition shall be used for deer/fox control and for zeroing on ranges, or land deemed suitable by the Chief Officer of Police for the area where the land is situated and over which the holder has lawful authority to shoot" That is the position of West Mercia, why not ask what your police authorities position is. Then you will be safe. I can guarantee you that if you are prosecuted, the chap down the gunshops advice will count for very little in court. What is written on your FAC has nothing to do with any farmer, why would you think it has? ft I did try the FEO but 3.10 pm they were closed, oh for a job like that. will try again today. as for the gun shop owner, since he has been in the business for 30 years you would expect him to know a dam site more than me, and he does, but you are CORRECT. he will not be standing up for me in court. as this is such a complex issue and i have learnt a little more, i will take the advice off a guy i dont know, off a forum that i have not long joined and call my FEO. and get the facts. as for the farmer (land owner ect), he is giving me the permission to shoot on his land! so without him i dont have a good reason, but i understand what you are getting at, but as i said, in my conditions it says "................................permission to shoot with this class of firearm from the person by whom shooting rights are owned, leased or otherwise obtained" so who is giving that authority for the "Class" me as an open ticket holder (which is what i was led to beleave i was getting) the land owner because he has had the land checked and passed for the "class" of firearm (i hope not) Or the FEO (which means i do not have an "open ticket") like i said its not clear and thanks to this forum, i will get it checked ASAP to be sure, and i will let you all know! got to go work calls cheers steyr
