    1. I didn't know it was finished, last I heard the owners didn't like the original version of the bunker and asked for it all be re-done. It does look great though and more real world than the straight across targets at Bisley

      Stopping drinking

      When I quit for a while last year I went through most of them starting with Becks Blue which I used to think was OK. If you try San Miguel or even Carlsberg 0,0 you will realise they have come in leaps and bounds and Becks is now probably one of worst.
    4. I think they have noticed more and more people doing just that. Firstly they weren’t available during the game season, now they are but they have bumped the price up by more than £30/1000!
    5. We need pictures of this

      Video Request - Crowning a pigeon

      It’s an 11 year old thread so the link is probably no longer valid. Edit. Here it is

      Dsc1 requirement becoming more common.

      In many cases it's a back side covering exercise, same in any profession Of course having it doesn't automatically make you great deer stalker, in same way stalking for years and shooting hundreds of deer doesn't either. A stalker of 40 years + was re-taking his shooting test when I did mine, as he failed it first time round, and you can't put that down to nerves. I have had mine for 15 years and shoot about 60 deer a year, I learn something new every time I go out.

      The Pot Kiln for me - some of the best venison I have tasted, locally shot and cooked by people who know what they are doing http://www.potkiln.org/

      Ha ha, sounds nice. I have a colleague with a Celica 4x4 turbo asking me the same, he thinks if he gets me drunk enough I will agree to doing it

      TVP Renewal and doctors letter

      Did they come and see you, or just phone you Dekers? Edit. OK just read it all you had a visit. Only asking as I had my SGC/FAC renewal through TVP recently and just had phone chat, no medical stuff at all was mentioned. In my case nothing had changed, in terms of address/job/shotguns & rifles so maybe that was why it was so straightforward.

      To answer the original question, shooting (stalking only these days) making pretty well anything - knives were the last thing from memory, previously - fishing, pike or trout, building rods, cycling, walking, fixing cars, building cars, more recently building a custom motorcycle. Not sure what to do next, hopefully another motorcycle - who knows.

      I will be interested in following this thread, or a new one if it spawns... Firstly as I built (and raced) a Lotus 7 years ago, from the ground up Secondly I can't get this 'make a road going tracker from a CR500/Maico/Husquarna' thing out of my head

      Tour de France 2018

      Today is crunch day if anyone wants to have a go, and baring accidents it must be the day Sky's hand is forced to make a decision one way or the other.
