    Ladder trap and shoiting

    Nice shooting with the .410. Could have done with a hushpower 12g yesterday on the pigeons. Do they take much getting used to? What sort of set up did you have and do you bother with a call?

    Bathampton fishing......

    Thanks for links Oldun, will take groundbait, bread, sweetcorn, cheese, luncheonmeat, lobworm, maggots/casters and brandling (any good?......I have a reliable source at the local stables) we are staying on the river so literally up and out first light on the weirpool before the pleasure boats start. Back for breakfast, then explore the rest of the water. My mate seems fixated on deadbaiting for pike but I really want to catch a chub or even a barbel😎 Were going 18/6 for 3 days, any more info gratefully received.....ie 'special' pubs worth a visit?👍 Thanks again guys...

    Combination gun

    Thanks for all replies. Guntrader is under constant scrutiny as are other websites. I have a slot for sect.1 shotgun but no variation as yet. I have never bought at auction but wouldn't exclude it.

    Combination gun

    I'm thinking about getting a combination gun in 12G/.308 cal or similar.(30-30, 30-06) Specifically BRNO Combo. To be used for rough shooting and occasional woodland deer, roe + fallow sub 100m. Anyone here have experience of such guns? How many are out there? Firstly, what do I apply for on variation, .30cal+12g or just the rifle cal? I plan to reload for rifle calibre. Im planning to use quick release mounts and a low powered scope, ghost ring as back up sight? All thoughts/experience welcomed. Cheers MM
