  1. With all due respect, Kent, when it comes to my livestock I'll stick with my vet of 40 years expertise, rather than an engineer and his welder ;-)
  2. My vet always does - check out the Levine Scale (Google it). We sometimes get young kittens with grades 1-2 and they usually grow out of it. We'd only get concerned if it was over 3 and we've only had one of those in many years of breeding. As said, don't worry about it.
  3. That really is poor performance from the Surveyor - missing possible asbestos is an absolute cardinal sin in my book! Fortunately your Sparky was on the ball and picked it up straight away. Asbestos is no laughing subject - I personally know people that have died as a result of being in contact with the stuff. I used to live a few streets from the asbestos factory in Armley, Leeds https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armley_asbestos_disaster andas a kid we used to dig up the waste in the yard and use it as air rifle targets . I'm still here so far, but I know some from that area that aren't . My grandmother lived only two streets behind the factory and her house (as the entire neighbourhood) was subject to a massive deep clean a few years ago. My other grandparents lived mid way near the right point (see the area on wiki) and we used to live in Aviary Road right in the middle. The guy that lived in my house was also a sparky who died from mesothelioma. To be honest if that hadn't killed him it was only a matter of time before his dodgy wiring did - the electrics in my house are a nightmare! Stay safe gents and get to know the identifying signs.
  4. Looked at them but once I looked through Swarovski glass I was sold. Mine cost around the £200 mark if I remember correctly. Blueing is a bit faded in places but optically fine. Worth looking round for a second hand deal.
  5. Yep - I'd go for a fixed mag quality scope like swarovski or S&B
  6. UD, I'd strongly recommend you see an employment law specialist solicitor. I just found a local one off t'internet, but a specialist not an ambulance chaser. Like you I'd not been with them two years, but I didn't want to just roll over and accept what my employer wanted to do. My solicitor advised against tribunals and the like, but knew I had a good case anyway. I ended up with either my job back or a very good settlement - I took the latter. They even got my employer to stump up for the legal fees so it never cost me a penny! Good luck
  7. Yep, we saw a few yesterday, but only two dropped to the gun. I'd love a chance to walk round (just me and the cocker) when you can take those waist high birds, but not long left now :-(
  8. Did say so, didn't I? ? They are definitely my cartridge choice for the 20 Sounds like you had a good day - well done!
  9. I use Sipe in a 20bore and they are 26g of #6 with fibre wad. They drop birds just fine.
  10. If you press the clip in the middle of his chest he'll turn into a car - well, just the dipstick actually, but it's work in progress
  11. Cracking photos They are awesome looking animals, but I never think twice about dropping one to the floor given the chance.

    Shed heater

    Last week I bought a Dimplex Eco OFRC15C 1.5KW oil filled rad from Argos for £60 - I can recommend this one, but you could always go bigger. As said above though, the heat isn't instant. Mine is heating a 5x4m blockwork 'shed' with no insulation and I leave it ticking over on the lowest setting, which means I can wear a T shirt and a thin fleece and I'm comfortable. I've not tried it on the highest setting, but I don't need it to be 20 deg warm in there.
  13. Yep, I can only concur with the above posts Have a look at the 'See the Lead' website (link below) and particularly the game page - it might just give you some useful pointers. >> See the Lead <<
  14. As far as I am concerned, no you did not. You did what any perfectly sane, law abiding firearms owner would do, and I would've done the same. Look, the law is there to prevent muppets and wannabe Rambos wandering around the streets and shops with firearms and air weapons - let's be sensible about this folks. Question and answer session now ended.
