    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 the CPSA.

  1. Sad news. Condolences to his family and friends. RIP Hawkeye.
  2. My guns are insured on my household policy with NFU as specified items and have been for over 30 years. The policy isn't cheap but the support I've had from my local office and head office when I've had to make claims has been first class.
  3. Sounds like a job for Burnley Dave, he had a way with doorsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  4. RIP Prince Philip, sincere condolences to Queen Elizabeth.
  5. Browning/Miroku have for a number of years been fitting a 5mm Allen key headed bolt instead of the plain screw driver slotted bolt, or with the 13mm hex head.
  6. Thanks for the prompt reply. The barrels are too light for me for trap shooting, I'd be looking for something similar to my DT10 at 1.600kg. There are some about but they're like hen's teeth.
  7. Can you tell me the the barrel weight please. It's stamped on the side of the bottom barrel forward of the chambers, it'll be something like 1.500kg. Thank you.
  8. I asked my gunsmith mate the question. He says they're different but a Browning /Miroku pin can be fettled to fit a Winchester top and bottom barrel. He keeps Winchester pins in stock as he gets them from the USA.
  9. That's the same engraving as my wife's 425 grade 5, no dropped points either. I think the 325 grade 5 also had the same engraving.
  10. I joined in 2008 and have just shy of 3000 posts. I reckon some of you manage that a weekπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
