  1. I bought a strip of land adjoining my plot off the council. Long story short, I paid 2.5k plus fees, for a 4x50m strip, no use to anybody else, and had been used as additional garden by previous occupiers since the 70s. The council wanted a lot more, but I got a independent valuation off a firm who told me I was in a “unique purchaser position” and therefore it was of no use to anybody else. We have since built an extension on the house that would have been impossible had we not bought the additional bit. I would say go for it, if it’s not massively overpriced (as ours was when the counci
  2. It’s probably a deact. These attention seekers are always posting rubbish with deacts, replicas, blank firers and air soft. Probably run a mile if they were on their own and somebody looked at them the wrong way.
  3. Me and the boys have been up catbells today. It was cold and misty down the bottom but lovely and clear with great views off the top. We’ve played board games and watched a film. It’s a big change of pace from our usual New Years celebrations, but not unpleasant 👍 have a good one everybody.

    A new low

    That’s a nice piece of equipment 👍👍
  5. I bought a unused, second hand Ogden’s drag bag off eBay. I got it for £50 but the quality is so good I would pay full price for one if I had to.
  6. I bought a drag bag of his off eBay. The quality is unbelievable, I have never dealt with the company directly, but I have only heard good things about them. And judging by the quality of the gun slip I can see why.
  7. Try clamping a jump lead from the starter body straight back to the negative battery terminal. My van wouldn’t start, just clicking. Changed battery and starter, no better. Even bridging the terminals on the solenoid wouldn’t do anything. Turns out it was a dodgy earth strap.
  8. I shoot a benelli semi auto, I’ve had it for years, it’s got a 26” barrel and synthetic stock. Its recoil operated not gas, so no dirty gas parts to strip and clean or effect reliably. One word of advice, learned from experience. If your buying a cheap used semi auto, try before you buy with the weight of shells your going to use. They can be the most frustrating things on the planet when the won’t cycle, feed or eject shells. But you won’t go wrong with any of the recommendations on this thread 👍

    Nice shooting mate. It’s certainly a dead deer or fox in anybody’s book 👍
  10. Yeah definitely. I think they’re looking at putting a rifle range in also, which will be handy.
  11. Yeah we did thanks, it’s good fun up there. And only about 30 mins from home. It’ll be good when the new shop opens.
  12. I think we might have passed each other on that day, as we also saw the guy with the top break semi auto. Me and my mate had a crack with him and he showed us how it worked. There was 5 of us, me and my mrs and 2 boys and my mate. My eldest boy actually broke a couple on the second tower with his .410! Which I was very pleased about. And his younger brother managed to break a couple of easier ones. Here he is in action on the sporting compak.
  13. This is my gun,I’m open to reasonable offers. Any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
