    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.

  1. I joined in 2008 and have just shy of 3000 posts. I reckon some of you manage that a week😂😂😂😂
  2. Was it originally a fixed choke trap gun, and can you tell me what the barrel weight is please. It's stamped on the bottom barrel and will read like this 1.000kg Thank you.
  3. I've got a pair of Le Chameau leather lined with full length zips. Had them donkey's years. Had the original zips replaced as they failed and the replacement zips have failed again. Long out of any warranty though. I'll continue to wear them whilst the top straps survive to keep the welly close to my leg as they don't actually leak. When they finally give up the ghost I'll look for a different manufacturer.
  4. Here you go, I found the details by Googling Flitwick Gun Club. FOLLY FARM, MAULDEN ROAD, FLITWICK, BEDFORDSHIRE Phone: 01525 713801 Club Secretary MR C SMITH
  5. We keep being chased by Eon to get a new smart meter installed, by email and letter. They reckon they can't get the meter readings remotely anymore from the old smart meter. Strange that our bills turn up and figures are similar to the readings we physically take. They get told to go forth, but they still keep asking.

    He was very articulate and offered sound advice. His comments were always well worth a read. RIP Hamster.
  9. Simon Willmore at Premier Guns/Doveridge did my DT10 trap gun. First class job.
  10. Ruff and Tumble towelling coat for my Lab Milo too.
  11. Surely if the driver and passenger windows were heavily tinted to prevent the occupants being seen by the police officers that alone is enough for the vehicle to be stopped in contravention of Construction & Use regulations. IIRC there's a darkness level of tint that is illegal to be applied to the front door windows or the windscreen.
  12. Just a brief update. The Toolstation parts fitted the bill perfectly. My pal loaned me his core drill as he was working elsewhere, and gave me instructions on how to do the job. I used a gizmo to check there wasn't any hidden pipes etc and I managed to drill the hole without drama and without turning the air blue. Wifey and dog now happy the a/c is working well and just waiting for the hot weather to return.

    Pubs now open

    My wife, I and the dog popped into our village pub after watching the F1 practice on TV on Saturday evening. It wasn't as busy as I had expected it to be as they've quite a large garden, tables in it and in the bar had been socially distanced apart. There were a couple of regulars who were a bit the worse for wear but in general everybody was behaving. The manager said he was closing at 10pm after discussion with the police and called last orders at 9.15 as he wanted everyone out and the pub shut at 10 so it could be cleaned etc. The manager said it'd been busy as expected at th
  14. Thank you for your replies guys. I've been directed to the Tool Station catalogue where they have a reduction connector with a 125mm ID which will fit over the wall plate spigot and the other end is 100mm ID to connect to 100mm duct pipe. Collect tomorrow and hopefully it'll be sorted without any more stress. I mean it's only a hole to drill in the wall, what could possibly go wrong.........
