    I'm left handed and have been clay shooting since 1977. I've been a member of the England OT, UT and ABT trap teams since 1991. I'm a current England ABT and Great Britain UT team member.

    I took early retirement in 2004 and have started crow and pigeon shooting to while away a few hours during the week and I'm hooked.
    I'm a member of both CPSA and BASC.

  2. Sorry to hear this Cat. Best wishes to your son.
  3. Yes I still have mine somewhere in the attic along with my Hornby Dublo train set, that's still in it's original box albeit rather battered now. The train set was bought for one of my birthdays in the late 50s/early 60s. During the same period I swapped a broken, WW2 revolver, given to me by my uncle, for the Mamod and a couple of yards of magnesium metal strip. The latter was interesting to a little boy as you could ignite it with a match and watch it burn fiercely with a bright white light. I really wanted some of the lump of phosphorus the other kid had too but I didn't have a container to take it home in, it had to be kept in water to prevent it self combusting in contact with air. I took a jam jar round the following day to get it but I found his dad had relieved him of it and left him with a sore backside for interfering with his work stuff. Happy days😊

  6. From what I can understand shooting isn't a core Comm Games sport and isn't a required event to be held by the hosting country. I agree it's pretty poor that England didn't have the gumption to stage the shooting events, but snowflakes rule! I think the decision to hold a separate Comm Games shooting event is a good one, rather than no shooting at all. It has long been whispered that shooting is not wanted at Olympic Games unless it's some sort of laser shooting. So a Comm Games shooting event could form a template for a separate Olympic Games competition.
  7. Cheddite do their Universal Trap in 28gm with fibre wads. They're marked as 7.5 but in reality they're English 7's and 2.4mm in diameter. Also available with plaswads.
  8. I was in Italy when Hyundai launched the coupe. In the local shopping mall to where I was staying the nearest dealer had placed one in the main concourse with a dust sheet over it and had carefully covered over all the Hyundai badges. Come the unveiling most of the blokes there to see it, including me, were most impressed with the styling and with all the badges covered over were trying to guess which Italian manufacturer it belonged to. So high praise indeed for Hyundai.
  9. New Perazzis come with a large tube of grease and new Berettas come with a bottle of oil. Go figure🙄
  10. Locked in the car unless I'm using it.
  11. My Lab is chipped, always collared on the street and has an ID tag with my name and mobile number. I'd need a blooming big tag to get my address on it too.
  12. Nice looking kit, she's got a like from me. 👍
  13. There used to be a special hospital for tropical diseases in Camden NW1. I think it is now closed but I found this link after Googling it. https://www.uclh.nhs.uk/OurServices/OurHospitals/UCH/htd/Pages/Tropicaldiseaseswalkinclinic.aspx
