    An 8 Week Obediance Course

    NTTF - Many thanks for all the advice posted so far. One further point though; When do you recommend introducing the whistle, how do you incorporate it within this 8 week programme, and what combination of pips do you recommend for the various commands? Cheers, Oly

    Clay Shooting Stag Do Wind Ups

    Many thanks for all the ideas! Sounds like I'll need to find a local cartridge reloader nearer the time as well as sound out the clay ground!
  9. Can anyone advise of any good wind ups we can give the Stag on his Stag Do? Whilst he had shot before he isn't a shooter. The weekend incorporates a session for us all on the clays so was wondering what we could do to liven it up? I'm wondering if it's possible to get tracer cartridges, clays with firebirds attached etc? Or just blanks?! Cheers, Oly Whilst remaining safe obviously!
  10. Lovely looking dog, great news!

    modded 223 noise

    Definitely louder. A lot depends in the quality of the mods compared. Irrespective of the noise from the mod, the bullet is larger and therefore makes more supersonic disturbance therefore creating a louder crack.

    .17 HMR SCOPE

    With any rimmy I recommend a ballistic reticuled Hawke - the drop charts and distance estimaters of the SR6 reticule are perfect for rimmys IMHO.
  13. Unfortunately not this year, maybe next. Feel free to keep me posted.
