  1. I don`t agree with all of what TR says, how ever I do believe he did expose the BBC to look bad and from what I have seen there is definitely a bias of treatment against him by the establishment / police over those who disapprove of him in various levels. Seeing the footage of him being attacked etc and no prosecutions etc being raised and the handling of it does make me feel there is two standards being delivered. Had the shoe been on the other foot the country would be in uproar. Again I don`t agree with all TR says or stands for but the treatment he is receiving to me seems "clear to see to a blind man" with his opponents becoming far more violent and extreme in their actions and being a far bigger threat than he has ever posed. The establishment needs to get a grip of this and bring some equality back to restore the balance and bring inline his opposition without fear of being labelled racists other wise their actions would appear to only deepen the divide and fuel the growing conflict between each side.
  2. How much use have they had Moxey ?

  4. Leather man over Gerber having owned and used both !
  5. No charger and I don't know where you stand on posting the batteries. But I do have some battery's I can include, I have a few I salvage from laptops. I will have a look in my collection though for a charger if your interested? Cheers Matt
  6. Night Master Venom Strike + battery extension tube. Being the Venom Strike model it has rotary brightness control on the rear. Red and white pill's. Mount also included. Has had little use but great condition. £55 posted (Worth £150 new)
  7. I used to carry a pen knife every day at work as even though am office based I regularly go into the warehouses and inspect kit which means opening packaging and cutting pallet wrap and straps. How ever a colleague complained and I was pulled into the office and told that I must never bring a knife into work again or face disciplinary action. So since then I haven't carried one unless out on a shooting activity. We now play find the knife as no one ever seems to have one or its shared amongst 50 staff and when you get it its one of these safety knives that you struggle to cut anything with because of the terrible design and they are always blunt or broken. Snowflakes taking over the world
  8. Two handy stores but there are cheaper places in the area am lead to believe
  9. My FAC Daystate Huntsman is running at 30ftlb with Bisley magnums and I find that fine for all uk air rifle legal quarry. 30ftlb is plenty of energy out beyond the distance you will use it. From memory a 21gn magnum at the muzzle giving 30ftlb equates to 11.5 ftlb @ 100 yards, so quarry shot at 100 yards if you had the accuracy is delivering the same energy as a point blank shot from a sub 12ftlb air rifle....... its going to be plenty of energy. At 70 yards with a head shot its passing straight though the head with a good amount of energy transfer. Myself I wouldn't go past 35ftlb and find 30ftlb perfectly adequate and it works well on avian pest too. ATB
  10. Me and the Mrs were in the same situation you describe pretty much. VW Golf MK5 TDI 105bhp (PD engine), Journey`s are 4.5 mile each way four times a day and it was not a lifestyle that suited the Golf. I have always had VW`s bar 6 months with a Pug and they have always been great. But with 140k on the clock it was time to replace it and shift to a petrol, with parking spaces getting smaller the wife wanted a smaller car too. So we looked at Ford`s as before we met she had a Focus that she loved, I was not so keen to move away from the VW brand so we drove a 1ltr 100ish bhp Polo....... We were both disappointed with it. So I caved in and we drove a 1ltr eco boost 100bhp 3dr and am happy to hold my hands up and say its wiped the floor with the Polo as far as we were concerned. So first week of December we bought a 2 year old 3 door 100bhp Fiesta eco boost 4k miles, its great and we love it. It also shifts just fine, we are happy owners.
  11. Any thoughts or reviews from owners of this brand? Am contemplating one of their Jackets. I need something smart enough for game shooting that is warm and most importantly DRY/Water PROOF. TIA Matt
  12. I have a Daystate Huntsman Classic in a stunning stock, mint condition, single shot tray and 10 shot mag. Also the Hawke Scope on top is available. Pm for any photos and further info 👍 ATB Matt
  13. As others have said, Horses are unpredictable at the best of times. I have grown up horse riding and some will jump at their own shadow and others would be happy grazing on a gunnery range, then you get the others that display either characteristic 10 minutes apart and for no apparent reason. If they are going to spook they will regardless of air rifle / .22lr or just a torch beam going around. The .22lr is a fantastic round in the right situation, but for me i wasn't content to use it many places. Myself shooting mostly small holdings I didn't keep my .22lr fore than 6 months as I was never at ease with the ricochets regardless of the backstop. I kept my HMR and as I already had PCP charging kit I went for a FAC Air-Rifle, (.22 @ 30ftlb) and its a great tool for this setup, also great on the shoot for squirrels and corvids filling the gap between 17HMR and sub 12ftlb air-rifle.
