  1. No mate mine didn’t come with shims, but I got it at a good price it had a damaged box, it comes up lovely really it’s the 26 inch barrel so light and manoeuvrable
  2. Hi mate I bought one last year, and I like it nice gun, if I was to knock it I am a left handed and the safety catch is big by comparison to my other semi auto’s I am told you can switch the safety around I am trying not to do that and am hoping I will get used to it, I have inadvertently put the safety on which is bloody annoying, although that happened it hasn’t marred my view on them they are good value for money and I am not keen on the barrel finish, that said the gun is very reliable and cycles everything you put through it, I used a good number of 3 1/2 inch through it, as well as shot clays with standard cartridges, and never has it failed to cycle,
  3. Don’t know how they could not honour there commitment, however the rumour was they had said they wouldn’t, each to his own but I think they are, in my eyes too powerful for there own good, I know to me it’s a rumour but the person who told me is not one for spreading crap, and the same thing is echoed above, I can’t verify it myself as I do not use any other forums as such, only this one and I haven’t really been on here for a long time,
  4. If that’s the case and you are not insured as pigeon watch have indicated, are BASC going to refund 3 months premiums, or however how many months this goes on for ?????
  5. BASC I could not agree more, why is anyone still supporting them is beyond belief, bring back wagbi
  6. Wideboy can I ask that dimension’s you have made that to??
  7. My really bad traps I put them in white vinegar 24 hours or so,then give them a spray with liquid galvanising spray, works a treat certainly revives old traps,
  8. Rubbish in your opinion, well that a statement that starts and ends with your opinion, in my opinion, fenn traps have accounted for huge amounts of prey, and to be fair, hardly any foul catches to me that’s s measure of success, we all have our favourites, that I will concede, but to say they should be banned, is bollox in my view,
  9. Gnash I have seen some good chocolate labs, but not many, mainly as blacks and golden, have always been more popular / common, I had never had anything to do with the Fox red labs, till my brother got one, and that was a belting dog, well worth keeping, my only opinion is they are bred for pup price, and if I am truthful they seem to age quickly, look old, as regards working ability I have never heard anything bad about them,
  10. I know I should stick with Honda and probably will, but if you don’t ask these things you never learn,
  11. No mate not yet, been told now to look at CF moto, never heard of them, i will end up with Honda or Yamaha I think, but I thought I would ask around and get others opinions,
  12. I don’t know where you are, but malmo guns, have a large stock of Chedite shells,
  13. Just check it, three shot group, that will tell you if re-zero is needed or not, I would always check on a new batch, for peice of mind,
  14. This weather front will cause some mess, as soon as the ground hardens the boys will be spreading slurry, and collapsing the runs with the tanker/ tractors, then you will see some soil pushed up, when they clean out, its been that mild bloody grass was starting to grow, its going to be a interesting yr that’s a fact,
  15. I am catching, but they are in deeper runs than normal, not big numbers, as in less than expected, but they are putting a lot of soil up at the moment, how’s the wood barrelled traps doing
  16. Hi lads I am starting to look at changing my quad, maybe summer time, I have a trx 300 Honda and it’s been superb, owned is since 2003, but I need something road registered / agricultural registered, I have been warned the trx 500, as in don’t get the auto box, then apparently there’s a issue with the back axle, something needing adjusting regularly, in truth that’s possibly still what I will go for, or yamaha grizzly, however I have been pointed towards CAN AM a few times now, and I feel they have been around long enough now, to get some honest feedback on them, anyone got one, what are they like warts and all,
  17. And that’s the difference between a stalker, and a shooter, well done Matt it is worth the effort, i wouldn’t have slept for a while, if I hadn’t at least tried to dispatch it, good shooting as well,
  18. Keep going mate trial and error, you will connect with a bit of perseverance,
  19. It’s sometimes good to put a second snare, 10-15 yds further down the run,
  20. Good on you JJm, it will be good for anyone starting out,
  21. Yes it is good half a body length in front, but it was his first time and to be fare, he did creep along side just as I set the sticks up, this is the point he picked up on the deer, I sat him then for a while till I had the shot I wanted, I wasn’t going to allow him to push in front too much, till I have the absolute trust in him, I had no lead on him, I had walked him into deer beds in the wood, in October, to learn his body language abit before we did it for real, his body language is very subtle, all you get is a look and a ear flick, and he starts to stiffen, but I feel that will come on now, as he grasps what’s expected of him, he certainly finds the blood trail fairly easy, even when I burry the end/ last bit of it,
  22. I agree, I have had a few Deer dogs, it is standard practice, and minimum wages, to give them a bit of liver, I was just chuffed with him I only got him in July, and the dogs just absorbed everything I have taught him, he was a bit gun shy at the start, but he’s gone from strength to strength, I think you can get a good measure of a dogs ability, when you are stalking, he ignored everything but what I wanted, he fell in behind and watched my every move, you can connect to a dog much better when stalking, in my opinion
  23. Not really it’s the manlicher with the PES silencer, they come along way down the barrel, it’s nicely balanced had it 15 yr now,
