  1. We did it 7 years ago at the Essex jamboree in Chelmsford - If you have a large youth event, give BASC a shout
  2. Netflix ran this advert last week for their Motley Crue documentary - With a picture of Steel Panther - A Motley Crue parody band - As said above, it happens
  3. We were there Sunday and combined it with a cheeky weekend away in the Cotswolds - 3 full bags of new bits and pieces and a happy missus
  4. Phil - What do you think the week cost you all in, with flights, hotel, stock and fitting?
  5. Works a treat as well and dead, dead easy - Make sure you get some risers for the bottom of the bin - Terracotta plant stand supports work really well
  6. The football is still pretty dire in comparison, but I'm not really much of a football fan - Rugby and cricket really stand out on their own and are excellent to watch
  7. I managed to make a rough chipotle from smoking the ones you sent me. Have planted loads of jalapenos this year and hope to nail it
  8. Pretty sure it's full up there - Last i heard they had 20 guns and very few birds
  9. Love a scotch egg. Make my own with 2 parts sausage meat and 1 part black pudding - Game changer. And a bit of Englsih Mustard on the side (plus a sausage roll, pork pie and a pickled onion - British tapas at its very best!!)
  10. Yep - Absolute delight to watch. Women's T20 and International Rugby are on a par with the men's game
  11. My thoughts entirely - Everything else is Daily Express/Mail sensationalism
  12. Thought this was a post about Hawkwind. Oh well.....
  13. Best midlayers on the market imo
  14. Having cocked up a few cote de boeuf in the past, with a cindered crust and a raw middle, i went to reverse sear and have never looked back - Get yourself an instant read thermometer as well and it takes all the guesswork out of when it's done
  15. Pick them now, wash them and then freeze them - They will be fine. Old tip, but still worthwhile - Make your sloe gin in an empty and clean 2 litre drinks bottle - Tighten the lid and throw it in your car boot - Saves all that daily shaking nonsense
  16. Brandon Lee was killed when a previous round jammed and the next blank threw it out of the barrel - The guns need to be open ended to show the discharge as realistically as possible
  17. I think you may have been a bit Bavarian in your interpretation of his response - It was meant kindly in jest
  18. I've no idea - Danger Mouse is 40 years old, but never seems to age! My comments were more a generalisation to the various replies on here. Hope your missus is getting some life back in her legs after her efforts at the weekend
  19. I'm probably biased because i was brought up there, but it's one of the greatest cities in the world and i love it. You will also find that while you're admiring your white picket fences, your kids and grandkids will generally love it as well and will take any opportunity they can to visit the bright lights
  20. There's an assumption that everyone that wants to join is a retiree, which is quite true of the members i know, but not very representative of the shooting community as a whole, but shooting in this area of Essex is very hard to come by and them's the rules. A relaxation of those rules would get them lots more members and do the farmers that they serve a distinct favour
  21. Then you're quite possibly the wrong person to be commenting on this post
  22. I work in the city in London and most of the guys that shoot are like me, on a little diy shoot or buying an occasional day here and there, whereas most of the Hooray Henry types that i'm assuming this article refers to come from Fulham, Chelsea, Clapham and Balham, but they ALL, to a man, come from country money and go home at weekends and holidays, to the family seat in Dorset, Devon or Hampshire
  23. Drive finishes at 5.30 and it gets truly dark at 7.30 - Gives them 2 hours to sort their lives out. Plenty of time at the moment. It won't be later in the season, but that's fairly obvious
  24. Most jobs can be done with a series of hitches - The art of a good knot is speed, strength and an ability to be easily undone and the rope reused. Personally, the knots i always use are: Clove hitch Round turn and 2 half hitches Bowline Sheepshank Sheet bend Square/Diagonal lashings Figure of 8 knot - Single and double
  25. Smoke joint and then shoot - Problem - Although how many guys have you seen severely larruped after a sloegasm session on a shoot lunch go out for the afternoon drives Spend day shooting, go home, lock guns away, smoke joint - No problem
