  15. I have contacted a company called Pennsports regards getting some lessons on shooting with both eyes open as I am struggling at the minute to master this, I have had a price of £165 per hour plus cartridges plus clays does this sound about right for shooting lessons as its a bit more than I thought it would be just wondered what any of you have paid in the past Cheers

  18. Yes that is the leaf in its crop but such small quantity all birds had very little in them so why they not eating much they just seem to sit in the trees all day
  19. Also forgot to say opened the crop of 3 birds 2 had minimal amounts of rape in them and one had what looked like clover leaves perfect whole very small leaves would this be clover ???? None of the birds had much in there crop quite empty to be honest why would this be birds were shot at different times throughout the day Had a comfy chair and 4g on my phone so browsed eBay a little but mainly just enjoyed being outside for the day
  20. Went out today was set up by 1st light and stayed all day till 4.45pm nice wind from behind, I have watched these fields and the pigeons have been on them and the damage is plain to see but they were not there today only good thing is the birds I did shoot decoyed into my pattern very well with no hesitation. Hardly saw a bird all day nearly 10 hrs in the hide and only 5 birds I went 3 hrs at one point around lunch without seeing a pigeon anywhere but hey ho at least when I got home the wife had washed her car cleaned the leaves up and mowed the lawn so not all bad
  21. Looked at these £109 compared to £15 for a spring kit which 1000's of people have fitted so will gamble on the cheaper option 1st and do bump test etc to make sure it's safe
