  1. RHD seems of decimated the population around here and continues to keep them away. I miss a nights rabbit shooting but have pretty much come to the conclusion I won't ever see it return. 😭 ATB Matt

  3. The issuing police force surely will face questions over this ?

    Let's be honest the Taliban will take over the whole country (Afghanistan) . They are going to carry out alot of horrific acts against people who rejected them and moved forward to a more modern lifestyle and opposed them. Once those atrocities have been done they will be seeking vengeance and thats when things will start happening back here at home and against other nations who have operated in Afghanistan against the Taliban. It's a terrible mess.
  5. Raising funds to fund my divorce! I have the following game cartridges I won't be needing: 240 x Gamebore Black Gold 32g fibre 5's. 25 x Gamebore Black Gold Dark Storm 30g fibre 6's. 25 x Eley Zenith 36g fibre 5's. 20 x Hull High Pheasant extreme 34g fibre 5's. Going on just cartridges price lists these would cost £160 plus postage. So am looking for £120 ono. Telford Shropshire.
  6. Clay/general shooting jacket. Labeled as size: M but easily fits me as a large / XL. Warm and comfortable in good condition and am not a smoker so no smell. Embroidered with Lincoln on left cartridge pocket. £25 posted
  7. Thanks folks. I had to move out of the house because of the mind game of being there. I pay my half of the mortgage and cut the grass to demonstrate I haven't abandoned anything. She is dragging her feet because she can't afford much on her own salary and its easier for her to stay put while am also not there. We don't have children, am 37 she's 38. I have a pension of 18 years and she doesn't have any pension, 14 years together, 13 years living together and 7 married. She said she wants to remain amicable and is happy for me to buy her out. But I suspect this might change while I try to coax her along to get things sorted, we split / I left mid January so she's had time to start addressing things. I don't want to split up but she's clear she has a new lifestyle / life and we can't continue in life together. I am currently back at my parents and its not fair on me or them. The wife knows she has no future in the house she doesn't wantbit and can't afford it but for financial reasons isn't in a rush to leave and its unreasonable for her to expect me to sit and wait for it to suit her. If anything the sooner we agree things and get her bought out the sooner she has cash to invest in her future how ever she wishes.
  8. Folks, I know am not the first and wont be the last. But any advice on this would be much appreciated. I am not at fault here before anyone asks. Am sure there will be other members on here who have been down down this path before me. Any advice on dealing with it and moving forwards would be greatly received. ATB Matt
  9. Hawke Sidewinder SR Pro here also on a HW100kt. Love it especially the ret, I used to be into MTC but moved to Hawke and it would take a lot to get me away from them now.
  10. Happy so far with our 2011 Rav. I put Cooper ATT tyres on and all good so far. Low range would be nice but it does have a central diff lock. I went to this from a Jimny, The Jimny was great having low range and being light it didnt get stuck but it was lacking a diff lock and space. With the Rav I have more space, better fuel consumption, 70mph is more comfortable, I can tow with it, the heated seats are nice and in an accident I have more around me. I just wish there was a bit more ground clearance and as I first said a low range. When it needs up grading It will likely be another Rav but an auto and again it will have a set of AT tyres on it ! Is it as capable as a defender..... not off road. But it is cheaper, more reliable, comfortable and capable and arguably safer ! Its all very well a monster truck that gets anywhere for green laning but when the ground is all cut up and the land owner isn't happy that`s no good and its where the lighter ATV`s come in !
  11. £300pa on a little DIY syndicate which gives me shooting all year round and access to fire wood. Normal year £800ish on Clay's Air rifle related: 2 tins of pellets and £20 worth of air. Insurance £40pa Obviously I have initiall spends on guns, scopes, air tanks, NV kit etc but the above is my maintenance / consumable costs. Also clothing to factor in. With buying bits I would say £1200-£1800pa. Yes i could do it cheaper and this year i may have spent £300 on clays and cartridges so about 35% of what I normally would in a year. We dont have children just 2 dogs. WFH this year will have saved fuel that will have covered my shooting costs anyway. I dont plan to die of starvation nor be the richest man in the grave yard.

  12. Really pleased with my Deerhunter Pro gamekeeper 👍
