    Thanks Lee, the only thing I don't like about it visually is the high scope mount, maybe that could be swapped out for the lower Defiant version. It would be interesting to have a direct comparison to the BSA Defiant. At £469 I think it could be a bargain. I'll wait until we get a few more reviews though and then try one myself.

    Okay to shoot now ? General Licence ?

    What it means is you can shoot under the terms of the 3 GLs that have been issued. Marian Spain says on the film that effectively nothing has changed but if you look at a new GL you can see she's lying. She also admits that it puts individuals at risk of prosecution.There are further meetings planned with Defra and Gove needs to be there but he didn't bother today.

    Yep, that really helps a sensible discussion. Thank you for your valuable input..

    It makes you wonder who is pulling the strings doesn't it? NE folded and revoked the GL yet the Scottish equivalent have put aside 12 weeks for a consultation period AND RETAINED THE GL! To me it points to government collusion to gain votes in the anti shooting, fishing and hunting sections to try and keep control after the leadership challenge. This is a seriously stinky situation.

    Fair point and I appreciate you telling me. I try to keep it in check but the mess we are in now boils my waste fluids. I want you, me, our kids and grandkids to be shooting in the future but to do that we have to be absolutely clean and within the law, nothing on view to be used against us. Carry on drawing tits but draw them properly, give them life, bounce and big nipples!

    Wild Justice or total injustice

    Is he dictating? Or is it the Tories allowing him to win a few battles so his followers keep them in power? It seems very suspicious to me that Natural England folded without a fight yet the Scottish equivalent are having a 12 week "discussion" later in the year but their GLs remain in place. Something really stinks about all this, it has the stench of rotting politics about it.

    Apologies if I kicked over anyones piss bucket yesterday, I was trying to get a point across but I was in a foul mood and should have kept quiet until today. My sentiment was right but the temper was wrong. I should have chosen my words a bit more carefully. Tim

    I know mate, sorry. I just think we all need to be aware that anything that he says will be held up as gospel by some press and the BBC and idiots like NE and DEFRA also seem to be sniffing his bicycle seat. I think his agenda is anti farming, anti bloodsports, anti game shooting and anti fishing. I just wish there was some way to outwit him and his cronies like they've done to the idiots in Natural England.

    Don't forget they should plant sacrificial crops as well, peas and barley just for the pigeons. How will the birds know which is theirs?

    He cancelled because some idiots threatened to turn up in bird suits covered in blood which threatened an event which was nothing to do with shooting. All this pathetic vitriole on here is achieving absolutely nothing, zilch, except that the police, anti groups and so on are getting more and more information about the shooting fraternity and what they stand for. How do you think they got their info about illegal shooting? How did they know the GL wasn't being followed?It's all online because people here and on other forums were stupid enough to post it, we had another one on sunday! I consider myself educated, intelligent and open minded but I bloody well despair at the sick attitude of some people on here. We could end up losing all live shooting in this country and if it happens its been helped by ignorance and stupidity starting with ignoring the GL for years and posting it up for all to read. Just like the idiot bikers who film themselves doing 120mph and then whinge because they end up in court. If you want to fight it, think of the image you portray to others, be sensible and leave off the pathetic insults and threats because right now Packham looks right to the general public and some people on here just look stupid and ignorant and unfortunately thats how all shooters will be seen.

    There was a commons meeting today to discuss this, bearing in mind that DEFRA is in charge I read somewhere that Gove wasn't at the meeting. I can't find any results of todays meeting but looking at the list of witnesses I would say we've got no chance of anything sensible. Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: General licences for controlling wild birds 2:45 pm; The Thatcher Room, Portcullis House Witnesses: Tony Juniper, Chair Marian Spain, Interim Chief Executive Lord Blencathra, Deputy Chair, Natural Englan All the planks who were involved, or implicated in the withdrawal of the GLs.

    Have a go on the Boxer if you can Lee, it's come in at the right price point and after my experience with a Phox I wouldn't mind one.

    Natural England did that because too many people were breaking the terms of the old GL. There is plenty of proof out there. It's even written into the new GLs that if DEFRA/NE get evidence of more abuse it could be withdrawn again. It's all too easy to just blame someone else because we don't like him. WJ and Packham didn't want or expect the GLs to be withdrawn at such short notice, they asked for the GLs to stay in place until January next year to allow new GLs to be drawn up and put in place. The whole fiasco was started by shooters acting illegally, the law being unfit to start with and NE being totally unable and unfit to deal with the situation.
