    Gundog Insurance

    Bought by Many insurance. I have the Lifetime cover with 15k annual cover and dental cover for my Cocker pup at £27 a month. Much cheaper than Petplan. They do other levels of cover including existing conditions cover. CLICK

    Not walking on lead

    Again no expert..... What kind of lead are you using? If she values you as a leader you could use an extendable lead so as you walk off a distance she may feel the need to follow... Is there any 'high value' treat she cant resist that would get her moving? (sausage/chicken/toy?) Is there another dog you can walk with to show her theres nothing to worry about and what she is expected to do?

    pet insurance

    Have a look at 'Bought by Many' insurance. I got their top lifetime cover with a yearly limit of £15k includes dental cover for my Cocker pup for £27 a month. They have other policies including pre-existing conditions cover, and lifetime policies with a lower cover amount. My policy was half the price of Petplan.

    Dog bite - what to do

    If you cant get a reasonable response from the owner it might be worth reporting to the police. It is an offence to allow your dog to be dangerously out of control in a public (or private) place. So the owner should be keeping it on a lead or muzzled, especially if it has previous history. The fact that it has injured both your dog and your missus tells me it is dangerously out of control! If they are reasonable with the Police and take the advice given, all well and good. But ultimately, they could end up in court and ordered to keep it under control. As regards the injury/vets bills involved.....if it is an issue, this is a civil matter between the owners to sort out. A dog warden wont be of much use to you. Hope this helps

    .177 or .22?

    If you go sub 12ft lbs i would go for .177 but if you go for the extra power of FAC I would (and did) go for .22 zeroed at 50yds you can shoot quite comfortably at 60/70 yds with a little hold over. I use the AA field 16grn pellet at 32ft lbs which works great for me.

    Sword sticks and the law

    A sword stick is made for the purpose of hurting a person therefore it is termed as an Offensive Weapon 'Per se' It is an offence to have an offensive weapon in a public place without lawful authority or reasonable excuse. It would be up to the person to show that they had either....... ie. if you had just bought them and were transporting them home I would argue that this would be reasonable excuse. As long as they were being transported discretely and not being waved around your head! CLICK

    HW57 won't group

    Apologies in advance if this is too basic a suggestion but it has not been mentioned yet... New rifle barrels have a thick oily/tarry coating in the bore when sold. Did you thoroughly clean this all out?
