  1. I wonder what it might taste like? Maybe dressed in a coating of golden crumb and then deep fried? Anyone for "Breaded Vulture"?
  2. Wow! I can't believe that for the forty-four years that I've held an FAC (since 1976) that the police themselves have been compromising my security by posting it out to me on renewal or on variation. Or maybe they have a weekly self telling off session down at your Licensing Manager's office? Don't RFDs trade gun between themselves all the time? Yes. But here they aren't trading between themselves are they. They are having RFD B offer a means for an FAC holder to collect "face to face" a rifle that that FAC holder has bought from RFD A "at distance". So on what you suggest that RFD A sells it to RFD B who then sells it to the FAC holder what happens if the rifle goes wrong? The FAC holder's contract isn't with RFD A it is with RFD B. And if RFD B sends money to RFD A and then when the gun arrives the FAC holder decides they don't want it? What then? The law is clear. The law is simple. If people don't like it then don't buy guns "at distance".
  3. Heck. It is shameful.Jumping on the coat-tails of people who are, rightly, offended by the odious remarks of this man Taylor is not going to divert people's dissatisfaction with BASC on lead shot, GP letters, removal of legal cover and etc., etc.. It is just convenient "smoke and mirrors" to try to hide the appalling recent track history of BASC. In fact it equally dishonours Jack Charlton's memory by so using him so. It is as almost disrespectful as is the conduct of the man Taylor.If BASC had any serious intent against those that use toxic language against sportsmen and sportswomen it would have directly contacted all its 100,000 plus members and asked them to write to those advertising in The Daily Mirror threatening to boycott that advertiser's products following its recent front page vilifying Paul Roberts. Question. We can all "talk the talk" but where was BASC in emailing members asking then to contact Daily Mirror advertisers back in June?Answer? Nowhere.
  4. Don't, please, buy at PC World. Buy at Argos. They aren't quite as "return friendly" as were Staples but I'd never use PC World ever. I've a lifetime licence on MS Office Home and Student 2013 and you just go to Microsoft's website and re-activate it on the replacement laptop. If it has a trial version of MS Office pre-installed it can be a faff when that trial ends as you start to think the laptop is no longer working with the Office you've the lifetime licence for. But I eventually sorted it.
  5. I quit twenty-six years ago from forty or so a day down to zero. Senior Service. Untipped as I'd the belief that it was the stuff in the filter that aggravated the harm the tobacco did you. Daft silly belief I guess now. But "cold turkey" that's the key. Stop totally and throw away all the paraphenalia the ash trays and etc.. I simply got fed up of drivig to find a working cash machine to get cash to then buy cigarettes from a all night petrol station. As way back then there were no card or chip 'n pin machines. And instead started on the small Galaxy chocolate bars. So the caution is do not start on using sweets as a substitute. It's almost as bad for your health long term as what you just quit! I'm glad I stopped. One of my Flemish drivers I worked with in France rolled his own cigarettes for the ten years I knew him from 2006 to 2016. He now has mouth cancer.
  6. It's all about face. Neither IMHO. For #5 on anything bar rabbits 30g is too little count of pellets. You want 32g #5 if #5 is the shot size you prefer. Yes it is only sixteen extra pellets but it is still more pellets than you've got if using but 30g.
  7. Sideclips too! As you know....but do please check with either Proof House the old ELEY cartridge in 2 3/4" Magnum was designed for those three inch guns.
  8. What I think? This is what I think. That this "Fighting Fund" is in fact already spent, as it were, and what it'll be spent on is defending the interests of the "big bag boys" and their bedfellows the British Game Alliance (ASK BASC WHERE THE MONEY CAME TO UNDERWRITE THIS BGA).The devil as always is in the detail. BASC's announcement says this " In addition, it will enable BASC to launch effective defences to disruptive legal challenges that could negatively impact our community. "So I fear that not a single penny piece will be spent on a judicial review on GP Reports and or woodpigeon control anything else besides other than the forthcoming tussle as in my opening sentences. Yes? Or No?So can any BASC Member ask BASC if what I think is near the mark or off the mark? On past failures such as airgun licensing in Scotland and Chief Officers of Police demanding "no GP Report no FAC". It's just throwing good money after bad. Fighting Fund? Past form has shown that they couldn't fight their way out a damp paper bag.BASC came into being in 1981. Since 1981 shooting has seen:Centrefire self-loading and pump action rifles raised to s5. With compensation payable to owners of but 50% of the market value and no compensation for dedicated accessories.Repeating shotguns with a magazine capacity over two rounds raised to s1. With the owner having to pay from their own pocket the cost of having these restricted to two shots.Detachable magazine shotguns....like the Marlin Goose Gun and notwithstanding that that magazine holds only two shots....being raised to s1. Or the owner having to pay from their own pocket the cost of having that magazine welded in place and Proof House certified to keep it on a s2 SGC.All centrefire and rimfire pistols and revolvers raised to s5. With no compensation to the owners of ranges where these were used if, as a direct result, those ranges went out of business.The requirement for two referees on an FAC or SGC.Air weapons onto an FAC in Scotland with (unless I am wrong) casual back garden plinking not acceptable as a "good reason" to posses. Yet the "B" in BASC surely stands for "British" and last time I looked at a map Scotland was part of Britain.A ban of air weapons being sent direct from an RFD to a private buyer. All such must now be face-to-face. Even regardless of if the purchaser of that airgun was by virtue of holding an FAC or SGC of "fit and good character" residing at a verifiable address.Brocock cartridge system air weapons (even the Brockcock Lee Enfield No4) raised to s5. With the owner then if it was surrendered , or at a future time when they gave up their non-transferable ownership, of his or hers heirs on their death receiving no compensation for the weapon.

If that's the record of BASC as being the "voice of shooting" in the past then "if the future" of what's left also depends on BASC then Heaven help us!
  10. That's OK by me. I only joined for the money off the dealer price of a new 4x4 that I can't afford. But at least now it's a slightly cheaper cost that I (still) can't afford. For as another said and I've cut and pasted below if the future of shooting depends on BASC you'd best sell your guns now. This. +1. But you can pretty well bet that the few shooting experiences they'll still continue to offer will be that day on the pheasants at Catton Hall for MPs.

  12. Well I see that the authorities are taking "steps" for fear that Ghislaine Maxwell might kill herself. Well let's just hope that she doesn't mysteriously hang herself using those "steps". Or slip on a bar of soap. Or fall from the ninth floor. Or X, Y, or Z. For those that are too young to understand the reference search on the internet "In Detention" by Chris van Wyk. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/oct/12/christopher-van-wyk-farewell-south-africa-literary-icon
  13. I remember when the pits closed in Leicestershire. The redundancy payments created a mini-boom as they got spent on cars and televisions and etc., etc. I think it'll be the same when the "furlough" scheme ends and folk are let go.
  14. Well at least it's better than this load of rubbish...I mean you can't even see what the two mounds of whatever it is are actually meant to be. African Himba dwellings just before the sun rises? Mongolian yurts on a Winter day? Or what? And I told the man in charge that there and then in the Museum. Those very words. Not like bloke on Joy of Painting's stuff I said to him. Oh no! You can always see what Bob Ross's stuff is. And then they called "security" and asked me to leave.
