  1. I do apologise, I lost the earth to the rear nearside cluster and it took a while to sort, all OK now, but I'm not using it now cus I don't want you use all the indicator fluid up. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š
  2. What I don't get is why we import dogs in the thousands and then get beset by the rescues claiming there are thousands of dogs that need rehousing. Surely if we wernt bringing dogs in there wouldn't be the need for so many rescues. Apparently, almost 20,000 dogs from Rumania alone in 2019. I appreciate brexix may have slowed the movement of dogs from europe, but they should still have been through quarantine shouldn't they? Worlds a strange place.
  3. Nice shiny new sgc arrived. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Worse comes to the worse I'll pump some out of the cows trough, which is filled from the kin big bore hole and underground tank. Don't have mains water, gas or drains.
  5. Well, I emailed staffs feo yesterday as my s7 runs out next Saturday. Had a reply back this morning to say my new licence is in the post. I hope its the sgc and not another s7.
  6. @Ultrastu what about, "The landowners and many people have tried various methods years ago to scare the crows away but the only thing that works is shooting" Do you try non lethal methods evey year bud, or is it a case of tried once and it didn't work so now I'm shooting?

    If you're ordering from somewhere ask who they use for delivery, if its a company you have trouble with tell the seller that you'll order from someone else because of their courier. If enough people do it they will take notice. I get loads of delivery's, there are a few decent ones and a lot of could do betters.
  8. No social media till 16. No smart phones for under 16's. Puters and tablets in school are fine but just no access to sm. Once old enough to handle antisocial media you can have it. Just an option. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  9. We get the police on the farm a lot, they use the woods for training dogs, search and rescue and whatever it is they get up to. Seen lots of them as I'm walking around with either the shot gun or air rifle and not once has anyone enquired about my reason for being here. We also have 2 shoots that use various parts of the farm so you can imagine the number of guns around. We've just started getting HS2 security driving around and I think I might have startled the 2 chaps in the pick up as I exited a field with the black semi auto as they arrived at the gate. Oh we laughed.. Think if they got a report of armed persons in a field around here the lads would just have a giggle.
  10. I thought fully comp ment that they not only repaired the 3rd party's car/wall whatever but put your car back on the road again. I've always paid for the legal cover and everything else.
  11. I believe the main advantage of the sse is indeed a quicker lock time. Not sure what power they are designed to run at, dont the Germans only get 6ftlbs in airguns? But then I was told the hw80 is designed for 18-20ftlbs and supplied with a uk speck spring here. A friend in France bought a brand new 97k and they get 20 joules to our 16, he said it was better at 18j. Mines also a .22 which are generally a bit smoother than the .177's.
  12. When I first put the maxi pro kit and short stroke extension in from tbt the 97k was running at over 14ftlbs, and it was a joy to shoot. Pity I had to reduce it to sub 12ftlbs.
  13. Glad someone else agrees. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜„
  14. You should try dealing with the tax office. I overpay tax every year (cis) and normally get my rebate oct/Nov. And it's not an inconsequential amount, well to me its not. But I've still had to pay my corporation tax (on pain of interest and fine for no/late payment) when they owe me a heck of a lot more than I owed them, anybody think I'll get any interest on what they owe me. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ
