    I'm thinking of several rude words to say now Steve! I ordered a pin from them a few days ago, wish I'd know about at this

    Need a new jacket!

    For pack away and general shooting coat I find the Harkilla Orton very hard to beat and is worn more than any of my other coats from Barbour to Laksen or Musto to Schoffle

    BREXIT - merged threads

    While we are members of the EU, we are not allowed by their rules to secure trade deals with any other countries, if that's what your referring to?

    Construction apprenticeship

    We have a total mobile ban in the workshop and I can’t see why colleges can’t have it either in workshops.

    Splitting Axe

    We had this kind of quantity to do last year. And after a bit of sweat and obscenities especially with knotty timber 400 quid was spent on a 10t hydraulic splitter for the tractor. I do the chainsaw work now and dad does the splitting. 👍

    Motion to Ban Lead Shot

    Now that is taking to the extreme. I would gladly put steel through ANY fairly modern 3" chambered gun, provided it was in decent condition.

    Had the January and February editions since.Really strange as they say they have copies of the December magazine in stock.Last time I spoke to them they promised to send another copy in a plain brown envelope in case an 'anti' was intercepting it.

    Bought a Phillips battery shaver at Boots years ago, £14.99. Still £14.99, put a couple of AA's in about every couple of months. I can shave anywhere, don't need water or foam. Pity it won't handle my designer stubble though.

    Humane dispatch

    Remember the hooha that got a lot of folks knickers in a twist. Armed response policeman used a wheel brace to dispatch a wounded animal to save paperwork and possible disciplinary for discharging his firearm without good enough reason. Namely public safety. They have people on a list to call on to carryout dispatch duties. Would your shooting insurance cover you for humane dispatch on a public highway if you had a mishap and someone got hurt? Or would you need a section or seperate policy to cover it.

    Humane dispatch

    Not all unfortunately, I had a run in many years ago, but agree I think most would see it for what it is / was.

    Humane dispatch

    Personally I think the police should be contacted and let them decide if they are ok with you doing the humane dispatch so it’s recorded somewhere. All it would take is an anti with a dash cam driving past to complain and you would certainly lose your guns while an investigation took place, then it would be for firearms branch to decided if you were suitable to hold the guns again - convicted or not. Contact your police wild life officer and chat with them, they could maybe guide you on calibers, circumstances and getting on their call out list - if they have one - vets are usually the go to these days.

    Aldi? I have a bottle there to try! The organic prosseco and cremant du Jura is very agreeable on a summer afternoon 👍

    Motion to Ban Lead Shot

    Yes but would you risk putting HP steel through a Damascus barrelled 1890' English hammergun? Even if it had been nitro proved? That would be advocating putting steel shot through a non steel proofed gun too!
