  1. Cheers for that, have watched reviews on the crown and still leaned towards the daystate
  2. Think I've made my mind up, after watching and reading loads of reviews on fac air rifles, a day at the shooting show to get to handle rifles and ask questions, looking at ordering a new daystate wolverine r. 22 fac at 30 ft lbs. This is going to be a one off purchase as a early retirement present to myself, Can anyone who owns or has used one give an honest opinion of there experiences. Also any recomendations which mod to put on it. Cheers Paul
  3. Quick update variation sent off Thursday evening 24th jan licence back Friday 1st Feb, .22 air & mod added South Yorkshire police
  4. Cheers Steve .22 is what I have been looking at
  5. Can anyone put me right on the correct wording when putting in for a variation for fac air, is it just .22 fac air rifle and moderator in seperate slot, cheers
  6. Beets been poor round here this year, plenty being harvested at present but the yield is well down.
  7. In the winter of 2010 bitter cold, massive snow falls around here, ground frozen had to use a hammer n chisel to get the hide poles in. Had some decent bags from sheep turnips sown with kale, had a job keeping the pigeons off they were hammering it. When the sheep were moved they still fed on the turnip stumps eaten down to ground level but frozen into the ground.
  8. Not happened to me as yet, bit curious as why they would need photo though

    Are mice cannibals

    I worked in the pits for 22 years, there were loads of mice, but no rats down ours. From 16 to 18 years old we were working in teams doing back work, one of the favourite tricks was if anyone fell asleep at snap time was to put a bit of bread on there chest, turn our lamps off and wait for the mice to attack. (Laughing to myself as I,m typing this) After the 2 week summer holiday when there had only been a few men underground they used to be starving and very active when waiting for the paddy (man riding train) saw one bloke spit out some chewing gum and a mouse grabbed it. They all disappeared during the miners strike, it took a few years before any number built back up,

    Are mice cannibals

    Thought that myself, but found no signs, the dog pen is the only entry point then they would have to go through the dog crate on the inside of garage to get inside, though I don,t think that would stop them. The trap had not be moved from were it was set, no more this morning. Only food in there is the dog meal which is in a sealed metal bin.
  11. Saw a mouse in the garage Thursday evening, set a couple of traps baited with cheese, checked Friday morning one dead mouse. Left the traps set, checked Sat morning and evening no more, this morning the one in the picture, been well eaten into and the cheese had gone. On checking traps tonight another one in the same trap no damage apart from the contact with the little nipper. Think it had to be another mouse or is there something else in there 🙁🙁
  12. Quick update gun picked up from gun shop today, spoke to to GMK workshop they have replaced the cartridge release latch and all seems OK, they have test fired it with no issues. Will hopefully get out this weekend cheers
  13. Cheers for that, was just a thought. Seems like every 6 months they put cartridges up in price, at present he knocks me off a few quid for being a regular customer and buying by the 1000, heard some good excuses in the past for price rises, war in Afghanistan, Chinese buying all lead and steel, and now it's brexit 😃
