    Crataegus monogyna

    You can mash up the flesh and spread it out to dry, it's called Hawthorne leather and is chewy. Not to my pallette but others may like it. Better with some elder berry and blackberry mixed in.
  4. True, just when you think k you found a good load it's gone or changed. I think with the new reach regs for powders we will find more changes.
  5. Aren't the Gamebore Regals just rebranded Pure Gold's. Pure Gold were a nice cartridge.

    First flying lesson

    Older aircraft don't but lots of the newer lighter aircraft seem to have them, maybe oy works up to a certain weight. Only a good thing as far as I can see, all new small aircraft should have it.

    More wreaths, sorry!

    Very nice.
  10. I've used and still have some Three Crowns, a true old style cartridge. Not the fastest but smooth to shoot and hit hard. My son shot his first ever pheasant using them. Have you tried any Lyalvale traditional game or RC carts. Another soft shooting cart I liked in 12 was the Caledonian XL they also make 20 bore carts. I found in 28 bore, all carts barring the 28g express soft shooting, I think it's due to the powders used in the smaller guages.

    If you look online lots of small light aircraft come with a safety parachute, fired by a small rocket to bring the and down safely.

    Moorhen - pest control

    The local marshesand ponds waterways etc have far too many plaguing the water. Noticed a population increase over the last four or five years. By your post you have a very nice permission.

    Trouble for me is extra large hands. If I get my hands in most gloves I can't open my hand or fingers enough to shoot ok. Some gents leather gloves with the lining removed from pad of trigger finger and thumb work ok.
