  1. Past hour
  2. when going shooting, take the bolt out of the safe as well as the ammo.😲 A good job the perm is 5 mins from home 😎
  3. Yes too hot in that it is just too uncomfortable to sit covered up in the heat and too hot in that the birds will spoil in no time and get fly blown.
  4. "the taxman is never wrong" eh?.......Oh yes he is!.... years ago, I was involved in an action against him, that had him over, initially internally, and then at every stage all the way up to the appeal court! Lol!

    Provided they learn to use a mobile phone, get at least one GCSE and get a taste of weed. Oh, and learn not to indulge in self harm if they get slightly depressed.
  6. I had a driver today saying he was going to refuse to drive a van without ac to Scotland....... I think I won the battle but we shall see if he turns up for work in the morning. London I get but a motorway trip up North where it’s likely to be 10 degrees cooler was a bit of a **** take
  7. Anyone remember these? I unearthed one in the cupboard while having a rummage and having ready many folks childhood memories regarding them it may be worth tossing it on eBay as a keep sake 😄.
  8. He's nuts! He's acting like a rabid dog, biting everyone who comes too close or he sees as a threat!
  9. Yesterday I looked at a cut Barley field that was cut and bailed four days ago , number wise , there wasn't big numbers but enough to pass the time , I mainly looked to see what shade there was in these hot Southerly winds and yes there was a nice Sycamore Tree that had about 10ft shade from the sun . Today was even hotter than yesterday with a light breeze and very humid , there was no need to go before dinner as 3 / 4 hours was going to be more than enough , so at 2pm saw me driving on the field and unlike yesterday there were very few pigeons on the deck but a nice lot were getting out of the trees , having set up with just decoys and a couple of floaters I was soon ready for the first customer , many a time the first one can be in the bag in a matter of minutes , but not today , for ages there wasn't a pigeon moving , then at long last one did pass just on the outside of the decoys and a shot from my choked barrel left it laying in the stubble , a few were moved by the shot but all they done was going back to the woods for a bit of shade , then a tractor and trailer came onto the field to cart off the bails , with him seeing my car and decoys showing above the stubble he started on the other side of the field , this would have normally helped but today it made a little difference but not that much , by a little after 4pm the sun had swung round a bit so I was no longer in the shade and the heat was getting to much for me , so with only six in the bag it was time to head off home for a cold drink . I know a lot of you would have shot good bags in the heat in the past as I have as well on many occasions , but today was very hot and humid and I was wondering weather it was just to hot ??
  10. Mmmmm, I just wonder who is going to tell them to stop?

    pick a number between 1 and 3
  13. Got a large portable unit for the conservatory, now pointing into my living room and blowing at 16 degrees, my feet are a bit cold 😂
  14. I dreaded temperatures like this when working at the Dairy. The by product of cheese making , which is whey, was pasteurised before evaporation and demineralisation and then dried to produce whey powder and concentrate for companies such as Cow & Gate, Farley’s and Mars. The heat needed to evaporate and dry concentrate into powder is phenomenal, which is just about bearable in winter. In Summer it was abysmal.
  15. That sound like a healthy combination. 😞
  16. When a sister of the OH was on VSO in Africa, she found it perplexing that the local males were actively encouraged as part of their culture to father as many children as possible, with as many wives as possible, yet the Catholic Church which was prevalent in the area discouraged the use of contraception. 🙂

    😀 I’m really looking forward to this; for the first time in years I’m genuinely excited about politics. I just hope he doesn’t turn out to be a damp squib. 🙂 Yep. They ain’t fooling anyone.

    What is a amusing is the Ministers who are going to protest by resigning and see it as a big thing, when none of them were going to keep their jobs in the new Government. Phillip Hammond, Sir Alan Duncan, David Gauke, Rory Stewart, Anne Milton. All jumping before they are pushed.😉
  20. 4 today very early in the morning before 7am but then it got hotter and hotter and almost everything took cover. Stuck it out till 1.30pm and the humidity and heat was not pleasant so set off home. Disappointed because one of the flip tops in a new wood had almost been cleaned out, but didn't get to that till late morning. Next week maybe. 1354
  21. They having another proper go on there twitter and bloggs, Accusing the GWCT of cherry picking science/ info from reports/studies! They backed up this time by some RSPB folk having a go to. Talk about pot kettle black! Packham put up lame tweet saying GWCT discredited and spent! But turned out the report was part funded by and RSPB's. So shot himself in foot there! Banging on about more eagle/HH grouse moor stuff and having another go at Scottish ministers. . . .Notice his publicity t shirts now incorporate the extinction rebellion logo. Guess he trying to get there followers on board? Robin Page (CRT) says some good stuff on his site/blogg. He got him and others sussed and not afraid to have go at them! He calls Packham out on whether his people/anti's tried to infiltrate/ undermine CRT in 2017! Anyone hear anything about this?? NB
  22. Looking for a good quality and accurate chrono in excellent condition suitable for any air rifle
  23. Was thinking they might be better for chest shooting crows and magpies at stretched ranges but if I can’t put them in the right place then will make no difference, will give them a try if I find some!
  24. Well I got a bit fed up of constantly swopping the silencer from my 17HMR to the 22RF so dug out the old enormous Husher, remember those. Mine had four sections which screwed together so I dismantled it and put two small sections together. Screwed it on the 22RF, checked it for accuracy and it did print 1/4 inch right from before, so adjusted accordingly and went out this morning and had no complaints from the four squirrels I shot out at 50yrds and the shots had little or no effect on the cock pheasant, half grown rabbit, half dozen guinnea fowl and two rock doves between the rifle and the squirrels. Still a bit of a lump on the end, but Heh!! it does the job still after about 15yrs locked in the gun safe.
