    Winter Coat

    I'm in the market for a new winter coat for the up coming cold seasons. I'll be mostly in a hide on the pigeons, walking the dog or rough shooting. I've been looking at the deer hunter Muflon coats, can anyone give me a review on these or any other coats you recommend ? Cheers, Worz
  2. 25 years I smoked, I quit 2 years ago and haven't touched a fag since, tried to give up twice before but failed and vaping is the only thing that's helped me. Started with 18 mg nicotine, now down to 0 mg, I enjoy the different flavor's and my health is fantastic from what it was, always coughing and spluttering and out of breath, now I walk the dog 10 miles a day sometimes more. Two things made me give up, my daughter begging me to and the other was trying to walk across a 200 yard muddy field with my pigeon gear and having to stop 3 or 4 times to catch my breath. I found the 1st 2 months the hardest but gets easier. Give it a go, you got nothing to lose. ATB

    Great video that. What dog do you use for retrieving? if you use one at all, it looks harsh terrain!

    Tips On Biting Puppy

    Hi, Got an 11 week old lab pup who loves to chew (obviously) got plenty of chew toys, hide bones, antler etc, however when we are having a bit of play time she just wants to bite my hands and wrists, i'm not bothered by the puncture wounds but need to nip it in the bud sooner rather than later.

    Sure Fire Way To Bag Plenty Of Crows?

    I downloaded a picture of a crow from the net, A3 size, cut it out, transferred it to 12mm plywood or MDF, cut those out using a jigsaw making sure you've allowed for a spike to dig in the ground. Painted them in Matt black and can honestly say they work a treat. I have a couple of plastic one's as well that I stick in the trees or bushes. I've used this method on many occasions and once I've got a small crow I put that on a pigeon flapper and I've had em trying to mate with it. Good luck

    17 Hmr 16" Or 20" Barrel?

    My mate just got rid of his 16" and he dropped foxes at 120 yards so Imo, not a lot of difference.

    Flying Rats (Feral Pigeons )

    But if they are cooked properly wouldn't you get rid of any infection?
  11. I'm new to shotguns too and had a limited budget so I purchased a Hatsan escort semi. I only do rough shooting and decoying so it suits me fine. If I had the money I would go for a Beretta or similar and you may pick up a second hander for that money if your lucky. Good luck.
  12. After 28 years of air rifle shooting I've decided to have a go at shotguns as the 4 permissions I have want the pigeons and corvids taken care of. The FAO has just visited and approved my gun cabinet and said I should get my licence in a few weeks so am now looking for a shotgun, however I'm not that clued up on them. I will be doing decoying from a hide and probably a bit of rough shooting, I have a budget of around £250 so I'm not looking for a Purdy. I'm not bothered about an O/U or side by side or even a 3 shot single barrel but I want a single trigger as I had a go of my mates O/U with a double trigger and found it awkward. I will be visiting the gun shop to try a few on but don't want to pay their prices. Any tips and advice welcome. Worzel
  13. I asked the FAO what was the waiting time for a licence and he said "a couple of weeks" but he also said the system has got better over the last couple of weeks so fingers crossed it wont take months.

    Gun Cabinet

    Gun cabinet required, roughly 1,3 meters high 220mm deep. to fit 3 or more guns in, I'm in Kent but willing to travel around 60 miles. Send me a PM! Thanks, Worzel

    My New Air Arms S410

    Love that gun! I was thinking of trading my 410 for one of those. Is it as light as they say?

    I Got A Tree Rat

    I thought I'd nip up to one of my permissions earlier to try for some woodies, I always sit at the bottom of a clump of trees as they have good ivy cover and this is where lots of them come in to roost. Even though I am camo'd up to the eyeballs as soon as they land in any tree around me they Faff off again. The only thing they can see of me is around my eyes through my balaclava. Is a veil needed ? As I sat there waiting for woodies a tree rat showed up so I had him instead, Head shot at about 30 yards, I couldn't get his mate though, he was too quick. http://s1327.photobucket.com/user/Worzel-Gummidge/media/Flyingrat_zps0a3fd156.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 Happy shooting all Worzel

    I Got A Tree Rat

    You know I didn't even think about the gun, its not exactly camouflaged is it. I will have to get some camo netting for it.

    I Got A Tree Rat

    I cant seem to find it! Could anyone stick a link up please? Cheers That was my first squizzer for years and the first one I've seen in months so hopefully there will be a few more now. I really want the pigeons.

    Chrono Connect Anyone?

    I tried this app myself a little bit and got different readings every time, so was not that convinced, the slightest little noise sets it off to, but you can turn the sensitivity down.

    Need A New Dog ?

    Hi all, I have a beagle, lovely dog, tried to train him in many ways to recall, dog treats, whistles etc but to no avail. As soon as he picks up a scent he's off like a train and you don't see him for 20 minutes. Anyway I will be looking for another dog to accompany me on air rifle shooting days and nights for bunnies, pigeons etc. Oh a quiet dog would be nice, the beagle loves a bark and a howl What would you recommend? Worz
  21. Afternoon all, I'm Worz, Been shooting old air guns for 28 years, now i'm tying to keep up with the new toys so I got myself an AA S410 carbine. May have just landed a permission to shoot on some private land, so happy days. Cant wait for the chats and banter. All the best, Worz

    Need A New Dog ?

    He is 4 years old now, if he's out with other dogs he isn't too bad, but again if he picks up a scent, he's off, mostly fox scents. I will be looking for another dog to take shooting, one that won't run off.

    Need A New Dog ?

    I don't really use him to tbh, he comes with me just for a walk but he's a pain in the back side, hence why i'm looking for a different dog maybe to retrieve.
