    Recommend me a Garden hose...

    I've just been busy swearing at my hose the day, u only have to look at it and it kinks, its a hozelock yellow and grey hose, rubbish. But it was quite cheap. Long hoses can be a pain to work with, but those joiners things work well. I've went away from hose lock fitting and am now all on brass fitings , even the good hozelock 1's don't like UV or get dropped occasionally Random idea would it be easier in long term to lay a surface pipe down to the far end of garden and put a tap on it? Just use alky fittings so at end of year u just unscrew a fitting to let pipe drain out for winter,. Real easy to do as a DIYer the only difficult thing might be teeing into the water supply,

    UPS lying driver.

    Lately I have had maybe 10 "failed deliveries" from Hermes. My building is occupied between 0500 and 2000 yet my parcels kept getting returned to sender. It turns out that the driver had googled and checked that the shop wasn't open at the times he passed by so didn't bother stopping. Didn't think to leave cards or even check if the office was open. Several times he reported that he had knocked the front door. Had he done this he would have got a reply or even seen the notice of where to bring the delivery (about 5m away). I offered the cctv footage to prove that he didn't even enter the carpark. The only thing Hermes said was that it would be noted for future reference. Didn't make any difference for the next 3 or 4 deliveries! I will never use Hermes if I can possibly avoid them. Useless. Parcel force on the other hand are very good. Edd

    Rust on action

    Only way is to rub it with very fine wire wool and gun oil.You could get the side plates laqured over after that would protect them but not sure how the engraving would look after.Its nothing you’ve done wrong cleaning wise or storage as I’ve seen this on new eell berettas.

    Yes, you’d never get the detail from Oxy/acet cutting, just *** to have the knowledge of how to use the laser cutter! all the best

    All Change at Astley Gun Club

    My sympathies with you,I know what should be done with the culprits, If they ever find them,
  20. last year we lost a lot of poults with a form of toxicosis in our pens, we have cleared all the brambles and undergrowth ready for treating the ground and have been told that lime is the best treatment to kill the lavae. anyone had this problem in their pens before and what did you use to cure it, lime or other chemicals . regards steve.

    An old neighbour had a similar gun I used to use occasionally, but it was single trigger and prone to the odd double discharge, which made things interesting because you never knew when it was coming. Pretty sure that was 3" too. Would have (ahem) been pre 79 though! As a teenager I can still remember him dropping an incredibly high, long and fast pigeon with it. He's sadly no longer with us as of a few months ago. Funny how some shots stick with you. I do have a quiet hankering for a beaver fore-end (amongst my many other (shotgun) hankerings).

    Recommend me a Garden hose...

    we bought our last on offer some place? Wouldn't buy now unless you get the above, be paying top whack given the time of year. I've also got two, one on the reel and one layed out in the border, makes it much easier than reeling in loads of hose pipe.
