  1. That is a thing of beauty. Thank you for the pictures.
  2. I have been taking my Webley bolt-action .410 around when checking pheasant pens, and bopped three squirrels with it over the last few days. Very satisfying ! 1497
  3. Hi Egg, If the renewal application is submitted at least 8 weeks before expiry, then their life is extended by 8 weeks after expiry until you get the new certificates. More information is here about halfway down the page: https://basc.org.uk/firearms/certificate-renewals/ Hope this helps avoid sleepless nights ! My renewal arrived a couple of days before expiry of the old certificates. BW J
  4. As a lawyer I would always suggest getting it in writing. And as a husband !!
  5. I have relisted this at £1,100 - superb gun for gameshooting.
  6. Needing prescription lenses I got some like these chiefly for cycling, and an optician glazed the insert to my prescription. Very useful to have the different lenses and the price is far from extortionate. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RockBros-Cycling-Polarized-Glasses-Ride-Outdoor-Sunglasses-Goggles-5-Lenses-UK/351757627398?hash=item51e6637006:m:mPyHTtxkdYbz9sXAlMLjYUg I use them for a lot of things now, including clay shooting.

    PPI job losses

    People who mis-sell stuff often end up dealing with mis-selling claims. They know where the bodies are buried. Their first company does all the mis-selling, their second company then pursues the first's insurers with the salesman trotting round all his old customers to offer to "help" them bring their claims in return for a third of the proceeds. Solar panels next ! BBC News - Solar panels: Thousands of customers complain. Original salesman "is now in business claiming to help people who have been mis-sold solar panels. He did not want to be interviewed". bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
  8. Mine is pleasantly slack now after twelve years, when it comes to opening and closing it, but there is still a great deal of initial resistance on the top lever to open the gun. I am used to it, but some who have tried it haven't been able to push it across to open the gun. If I had arthritis I would certainly want it eased but as it is I'm prepared to wait another 12 years !
  9. Disgraceful - one for Bristol City Council trading standards ?

    Sorry for your loss. What a wonderful tribute - may her love continue to sustain you all.
  11. Some solicitors will offer a fixed-fee service to obtain a grant of letters of administration. Hope this helps - at least £60 plus VAT to renounce is more palatable than £1500 plus VAT !
  12. Please go get some advice from a proper regulated solicitor. I am a solicitor (property disputes, financial services/investment disputes & employment law) but I don't deal with that area of law and I am not local to you. However, I do know you will not become personally liable for the debts of the deceased merely by taking up a grant of probate (will) or letters of administration (no will) so I really don't understand the first bit of advice you had. Debts are payable out of his estate not from anyone else's assets. They aren't suddenly payable by his next of kin. The Solicitors holding the money will want to pass it on to the rightful recipients. You can search for local specialist probate solicitors here : https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ most will give an initial free meeting.
  13. How would you propose firing them, you cannot fit them into a .22RF chamber - the cartridge itself is .38 calibre.
  14. These are pretty accurate in my CZ bolt action, very confident with them.
  15. I have been using OpenShot on the PC - it seems pretty comprehensive. You can add titles, still images, join/overlap clips, edit the sound etc.
