    Semi Auto,

    Some great autos recommended, but how are they great for clays and a bit of pigeon shooting seiing there mainly field guns. Yes Winchester did a red Flanigun with tricked out bits but getting old and rare now. Browning do a maxus sporting clays model. Not sure about Remington sporting clays or just field guns. Go handle and shoot clays with as many as you can. I did and the reason I shoot a Benelli Super Sport is nothing else came close for clay shooting as it's what it was designed to shoot. Untill Breda unveiled the 930 which looks like a rip off of the Benelli super sport. We all know and have some wonderful over and unders for game and field that can shoot clays. But not like a designed clay shooting gun can. Beretta have some great clay bashing autos too.
  2. I think they don't look up to the job so you best send them to me for field testing and disposal if they fail the test 😝 Very nice looking knives
  3. You could have a pad properly fitted by a gunsmith. Trying to get bits to stick to a shaped stock butt is difficult.

    moss control

    I have copper nails holding the slates on. Not going to help with them being underneath. You can buy copper sulphate on Amazon so it's not illegal.

    moss control

    Cheap bleach and water will kill it. You won't stop it coming back unless you can change the conditions it's growing in. My slate roof is getting some lichen growth on the shady north facing ridge and a couple of foot below the ridge. I use Wet and Forget sprayed on and leave. Kills it and stops it for a season or so.

    Pick 4

    The Victory challenger 2 in 24g were loads better than the 28g of the same. So some recipes suit 24g better.
  7. Get the reporter and shoot them with it, they can see just how lame their reporting is. As for the teacher fair play to him they're not little children but teenagers. What next no running around or playing sport or gloves must be worn when handling paper.

    Semi Auto,

    Up your budget to around a grand and get a used Benelli super sport. I've had some semis and own two a supersport and a maxus. The Benelli is made for clays and is great on pigeon shooting too. Brownig Maxus is ok but not in same league.
  9. First thing strip it and clean it with a degreaser to remove all the preservation wax and grease. Relube and reassemble it. Get a few boxes of some heavy and fast game loads and shoot them. It should then cycle your eley carts with no problems. Some will cycle the eley from the box others won't. Is your gun 3" or 3 1/2" chamber ?
  10. The dog Inn at heighnton. Not sure but it was on Facebook and might still be. Oaklodge at Hartlepool is a good ground not to far away. Spennymoor is ok too and Marne barracks clay shoot.
  11. If you have your license that should suffice. The Duke of Wellington gun club is not too far near welbury. Open every other Sunday they have a Facebook page.
  12. WD40 on leather work bootswill only work untill it dries out. Try some silicone oil, it won't dry out and should work better.

    Jacko3275 it's a nice refreshing tall drink when your sick of g&t
  16. Get the next size up Allen key, file the sides to a gentle taper so the end fits into your cap head screw. Tap it in with a small hammer and then push it in as you turn it. Should come out no problem and no damage.

    Cool engineering

    How the do it and extreme engineering are favourite viewing for me. Just wouldn't fathom how some stuff is made or how complex it can be. How stuff is made is another to watch. Henry d I agree the driver had to have skill to line up the edge but they do it day in day out.

    Cool engineering

    Looks like the machine plumbs it up as the driver wouldn't be able to see. Watched them years ago with a vibrating tool and a hole in the sheet to attach it. As you say the engineering and technology in modern machinery is great to see in action. The modern tree felling machines, cut strip and measure the trunk. It then decided the best yeild for that trunk and cuts to length accordingly.
  20. I email the picture from one account to another, as the email program asks what size you want to send. Pick a size re open and attach as your avatar.
  21. The diver Dave stuff looks good for the price. Must work when it's saying for waders.
  22. Don't keep us in suspense, we need our fix 😆
  23. Well-done on your 154 Motty. Might be worth keeping your tin carts, not seen any for sale so will be collectors items in future

    Badger problem

    Start charging the badger brigade to come and watch them. You'll make a few Bob and they may scare them off.

    Garden bird ID

    Isn't the mythical oozlum bird on one of the carry on films. I think you have a female Bullfinch.
