  2. Gosh you paid a lot for that, mine was only Β£19 off fleebay and it's pumped my gun up 3 times at least so I'm on to a winner πŸ†πŸ˜‰
  3. If they are crafty then you could do with a call bird also. I don't know about the best larson trap in England but they are sold on fleebay. Not trying to "show granny how to suck eggs" but there are regulations on using a larson trap. You can find stuff on the B.A.S.C website about larson traps.
  4. No reds anywhere near me πŸ˜‰ I shall have a go at fixing it vertical but there are only two small holes for screws in the base. I could imagine if it went off vertical it would pull the screws out. Unless I get some small bolts and washers πŸ€” Thanks for your advice it's given me food for thoughtπŸ‘
  5. So with the entrance at the bottom? If so how do you keep the peanuts in? I didn't have instructions for mine I had it given. Even so I still think the activator would be at 7 o'clock due to the tension on the arm.
  6. Good job done then, well done πŸ‘
  7. Advice please. As you look at the trap, that we both have, end on. My activator (the bit that hangs down that sets the trap off) doesn't hang down at 6 o'clock it's more like 7 o'clock. Consequently the squirrel is sneaking down the right had side nicking the peanuts and avoiding the activator. I took the side plate off and with a piece of wood tried to push the activator from 7 o'clock to 6 o'clock whilst the trap was set but it just springs back. What I thought was to put a block of wood 3" x 2" in the right hand side on the floor of the trap to force the squirrel to go up the left hand side? I hope it makes sense. Anything I'm missing please?
  8. Why do you need your eyes checking when you have had them checked at specsavers?
  9. What I'm saying is that if you are not forthright they will try and sell you frames and whatever else they can.
  10. Not before trying to twist your arm up your back with selling you the most expensive frames and coatings etc and getting grumpy when I said that I was late for my bus πŸ€₯πŸ€₯
  11. Do you have a right arm like popeye when setting it? I clench my teeth when pulling/setting the handle its so strong.
  12. Sometimes when the trap has "gone off" the spring steel arm is so powerful that it chucks the side feeder plate off. I never leave it off. This is the trap unset and side plate off.
  13. It would be an unusual shape that's all.
  14. Oh no you wouldn't when you'd had it, stick to the risotto πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ‘
  15. Very much so, also the black pudding was nearly as hard as pork scratchings and sooooooo peppery. I've eaten some rubbish meals in my life but that has got to be in the top 5. I think that you are right βœ… Best thing on the plate to be honest πŸ‘Œ
  16. I thought that I was missing out by not having one of Morrisons half price full English breakfasts. I wish that I'd not had it for Β£2.75 and Β£1.65 for coffee. Let's just say I'd sooner have a slice of toast than salty bacon, peppery sausage, peppery peppery black pudding.
  17. I've put some thought into this but I'm not sure how to.
  18. Hope that you feel better soon πŸ‘
  19. I think they are a pain in the bum when you are trying to get a dog cage, or shooting equipment, wading stick etc in. That's why I take mine out.
  20. I have to admit that I have not read every statement on here but could you highlight where someone has "condoned or encouraged paedophilia and child exploitation " please.
  21. I was thinking something on these lines today, de regulation. On the A61 near our local football stadium the road has had all chippings chucked on it sooner than resurfacing properly. This work has been done over a week ago and there are no lines in the middle of the road or anywhere. The traffic is really slow and everyone seems to be more wary = safer. If we did away with all the lines on roads would we be all more cautious = safer? Just a thought.
  22. Does this help? https://www.trapshooters.com/threads/older-promatic-trap-blowing-fuse.872761/
