  1. Any one seen or used these?. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electric-Fly-Catcher-Killer-Fly-Insect-Trap-Device-USB-Cable-UK-With-Trapping-Ja/292629647748?hash=item4422161184%3Am%3AmgbsgkzWYvbXrmbxqbIChuQ&var=591433359881&_sacat=0&_nkw=fly+trap+usb+&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR2.TRC0.A0.H0.Xfly+trap+usb+.TRS0

    Small knife

    I use Stanley knife blades. Hold them with finger and thumb and the tip of the blade is just right to cut a rabbit open without going too deep. They are razor sharp, 2 ends and cheap.

    NEW NV and range finder

    Those range finders are spot on!. I set mine up at night on any rifle using my Starlight Archer N/V add on. Once you know it's set to the centre of the cross hairs it good to use in the day time as well as the night. I paid £105 including delivery off of Ebay, I see they're now even cheaper. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LE-032-Laser-Range-Finder-Riflescope-Sight-Rifle-Scope-Rangefinder-Hunting-700M/273191597180?hash=item3f9b7cf47c%3Ag%3ATA0AAOSwCJxaEnoQ&_sacat=0&_nkw=700M+Tactical+Aiming+Laser+Range+Finder+Sight+Rifle+Scope+Camo+For+Hunting+PRO&_from=R40&rt=nc Get this as well and fitting is sorted https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rifle-Scope-Accessory-Mount-30mm-25mm-1-Weaver-Picatinny-Rail-Laser-Torch/222445802782?hash=item33cacd951e%3Ag%3AALIAAOSwzoRZhG7h&_sacat=0&_nkw=Rifle+Scope+Accessory+Mount+30mm+%26+25mm+1"+Weaver%2FPicatinny+Rail+Laser+Torch+(+222445802782+)&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313

    Advice required about Shotguns

    I got what they used to call a 'lazy eye' in my right eye. Smack bang in the middle I can't see shit. I'm right handed, do EVERY thing right handed....except shoot. I got a total of 6 guns and they're all left handed apart from my Wincester SX3. I shoot it left handed but it spits out the empties across my right eye, but it's never been a problem. If your right eye is duff just be resided to the fact you'll have to shoot lefty. You'll get used to it in no time. If I hold a gun, of any sort, to my right shoulder it just feels so wrong. I think 'How the hell do people shoot like this???'

    Squirrel time. Co2 and .410!

    Yeah, use them on rats, magpies and jackdows, about 15 yards, that pester my bird table. I like the Eley Fourlong coz I can shoot them from the window without damaging me eardrums

    Squirrel time. Co2 and .410!

    What's the blue cartridge?. I use the Lylvale and Eley and they're both red.

    Rabbit cage traps

    Use cheap carrots, the real cheap economy type. They are grown with loads of NPK and contain lots of sugars, they smell nice to rabbits. Cut them into long thick battons and not discs. They keep fresher and won't dry out so quick. Had 10 traps in a meadow and was getting 5 or six rabbits a day by baiting them like this.

    FAC Inbound, time to shop

    Got 2 CZ 452's. One in 22LR and one in HMR. Sanded the stocks just under the barrel to make sure they were floating nice, put trigger kits on both of them and they are both spot on. Why spend money if you don't need to?. I would spend as much as possible on really good scopes, that would make a difference.


    I stick it on one of these, a flexible octopus tri-pod, they're cheap and it holds it in any position. Search for them on Ebay.


    I have a Sony HDR CX 240. You can get one for £130 in Argos, and it films in HD. If you put the model and name of the camera into Youtube you can see reviews from people of the camera, this goes for any other camera you might be interested in.
  11. Got up this morning and the Mrs says she's put some food out for the birds and there's a rat running back and forth taking the food. I get the .410, mine's a Baikal Hushpower single shot, stick a 2 1/2'' sub in and creep out side. I'm stood there in me pants and a pair of Ugg boots, 'bout 15yrds away, when I see the rat run to the food. Soon as it stops, 'FHUUUUT!!', and she's dead. It was a big 'ol female rat and it looked pregnant. Took it across the field and left it for the buzzard. I told one of the farmers that I shoot for that I leave a lot of rats and rabbits etc in the field for the Buzzards and he went on a bit of a rant as they take his young pheasants. I said as long as they're eating what I leave they ain't taking his poults, he said....'Fair point....'' :-)
  12. I shoot 2 1/2'' ,number 6 shot Eley subsonics. My ears start to ring at noises others think aren't that loud and I can shoot these with out muffs. You want to be no further than 25yrds with these as they drop off quickly. I also use 2 1/2'' Lyalvale cartridges, get from Mole Valley, in number 6 and 5 shot. These are harder hitting and noticeably louder than the subs, but still quiet in a moderated gun compared to an unmoderated gun. The Eleys are a 12.5g cartridge and the Lyalvales are both 14g. I have used 3'' Eleys in number 6 shot that are 18g as well. They'll give a bigger spread of lead. Just buy a box of each and shoot at some card board boxes to get a feel for them.


    If you have a corvid problem and can't shoot for some reason build a ladder trap. If used correctly they will catch shit loads of birds. You can get instructions on how to build one off of the B.A.S.C. site.

    Cleaning PCP air rifle

    I use the Napier VP90, spray it on every thing. Keep some VP90 patches in your cabinet or where ever you keep your rifle, keeps moisture out. I don't EVER clean the inside of the barrel, never have. The barrel shoots better with a build up of lead in it.

    Get out the way!!

    That's free food!. Would have got the Mrs to start frying some shallots and butter some bread as I was cutting the breasts off ready to slice up and fry......I loves pigeon!
