  1. Good, just check around for best price: Draper 75170 Torque Screwdriver Kit, 1 - 5Nm (craigmoreonline.co.uk)
  2. If you're going to reload and you're not continually trotting up norf and can therefore have a dedicated fox round, you could try Hornady 50g SPSX. These stabilise at 2690 in my 26" 1 in 14 22 Hornet barrel so no problem. Don't think I'd advise for roe though.
  3. As you'd expect, I'm not quite so sure. For example, I think it fair to say that a working knowledge of proof marks for a shotgun user would be considered essential rather than pointless particularly when offering advice.
  4. By gum, a truly 'sporting life'. I sometimes think that we don't know enough about what other members have done in their past. I have dropped the odd deer - roe only here - but I'm certainly not a stalker - and it's just been the odd one for the pot until I got to the point that I could put them down but wasn't able to pick them up. This coincided with a change in estate policy which meant that the venison was taken 'in house' so that was that. What with one thing and another, One can't help but wonder for how much longer will we be able to read about, or, indeed, enjoy, such a lifelong experience. As have I myself at my age, I fear that it will have a limited time. So, perhaps we should keep things close to our chests so that the youngsters don't know what they're going to be missing. No matter, still got a few more pigeon to look after before then. Tightchoke may even get to realise that any ability is often linked to, or results from an, inquisitve mind.
  5. The only folk that can get rid of him are is own mob. After the PPB last evening, I suspect that for the time being that the string is high tensile and secured with a round turn and two half hitches
  6. Thank you. On the mend and within the passed few hours have been able to use my hand to type a bit after having a nasty RA flare up. Having responded to your query about my shooting activity, perhaps you could reciprocate and give us an idea of your voluntary contribution to shooters and shooting if any.
  7. What I'm wondering is what could it be that is so serious that the government - in view of not a lot happening elsewhere and the possibility of a bored journalist tripping over it - have orchestrated a minor cake and - you know what else - party to ensure that the medias' attention and all of the associated news broadcasts are diverted well away from it. There has to be something as, let's face it, this drivel achieves absolutely nothing in its own right except extending any period of grief unnecessarily for the poor folk adversely affected by the pandemic.
  8. This is based on the assumption that you will not be into serious competitive clay shooting and the fact that just like the quart and a pint pot, two into one won't go. Get whatever game gun that takes your fancy and which if necessary can be adjusted to suit you.
  9. I was just going to edit my post. If it's just the one hand/finger causing problems, these are elasticated and I've just checked to find they're not really specifically handed, so perhaps 2 for the price of 1.
  10. I thought that my white finger had come back to haunt me, but no, it was the start of the arthritis. Even on a summer's evening I could suffer. These are not what you asked for, but if it turns a bit chilly and things kick off somewhat, you could try Ussen Flight Gloves. These are not heavy duty or waterproof, but on the other hand (no pun intended) they don't cost a lot. They are thin, grip you as well as what you're trying to hold. Got mine a few years back when they did 4 colours, but now it's just Ford's any colour.
  11. I don't worry about it but just dine at The Jack In The green at Rockbeare and just have either the standard or black pudding version - which ever is on the starter menu at the time. No need to overthink things, is there?
  12. There is an economy out there - old and new money - which you and I know very little, if anything, about and of such a magnitude that we can't understand the meaning of all of the '0s'. The people who live there are not going to be affected by a bit of a cough.
  13. Pity he didn't mention the difference between barrel weight and proof pressure marks.
  14. If I didn't know what I was doing with what and why I was doing it, my father would never have let me out of the house so I got 'switched on' quite early. I recognised the advantages of this and hence the interest in the PAS. I have this reoccurring nightmare where I'm sitting on a beam in a classroom of the Norfolk College of agriculture looking down watching myself explain to the first ever PAS course that my team and I don't know everything, but if we can't answer your question immediately, then we'll get the answer in time for next week's lecture. Error. Big. Error. You can not possibly imagine what questions a classroom full of mainly younger shooters who want to be there and want to learn can possibly come up with. I learned more than any student did having to investigate their questions. Then, just to compound things NTS took off and I got to meet Dr Roger Giblin.
