  1. Hoping someone on here may be able to give some useful input on an issue I'm having with a '13 plate corsa. Always had an issue in 4 years of ownership whereby rear passenger door wouldn't open via external handle until interior handle had been pulled. Would open fine until vehicle locked, then had to repeat performance once unlocked. Could live with that, but recently put child locks on, which means can no longer open via internal handle! Have taken door card off, but can't see anything obvious. Operating central locking via fob, can feel mechanism apparently working i
  2. Everyone on here should take the time to take a look at the c4pmc site and their articles. No one is taking it to the antis better than them at the moment. The activist advent calendar is an excellent piece of work. Not particularly over the top, but simply pointing out some home truths about those that are most vocal about what we do in the fieldsport community. Any chance anyone gets to distribute or highlight c4pmc, please do so. We all need to get behind them.
  3. If the seller of this gun is a PW member, could you please confirm. Very interested in gun, but not personally a gunwatch member so can't make contact via that channel. Many thanks
  4. I'm sorry, but how does being able to use lethal control of rooks and jackdaws to prevent damage to crops help in a situation where action is needed to prevent them predating nests? Yes, you could apply for an individual licence, but the chances of getting one in the same calendar year are none existent if recent experience of moorland keepers under the current licences are anything to go by. As I say, the majority of members on this site will probably be unaffected, but for those seeking to increase wild game numbers, or wildlife in general, through lethal control of corvids, next
  5. Plenty has changed. Rook and jackdaw off the protection of wild birds licence completely. The protection of wild birds licence now specifically protection of endangered wild birds. From Jan next year, you couldn't kill a carrion crow to protect a red grouse or wild pheasant nest. And the above are just for starters. I'd say these new licences are worse than the existing licences, which is saying something. I'm sure plenty of people on here who are mainly interested in shooting wood pigeons or corvids over arable land will think this has all moved on and be h
  6. A moment ago Add bookmark #1 Are there any motor traders on here with a BCA online trading account? If there are, and you're interested in discussing a particular vehicle I've got my eye on in an online auction at the BCA Manchester site on Thursday, then I'd appreciate if you could drop me a PM for a chat. BCA aren't allowing bids from anyone other than registered traders at present, so can't go after it myself. Hoping I'll be able to reach a mutually acceptable deal with a trader on it. Many thanks Novice
  7. Everything like this should be reported to the police, although I accept it's unlikely that anything will get done in response to the individual incident. What it will do is add to the body of evidence that this sort of criminal damage is getting more widespread and police will have to dedicate more resource to it. One thing that would be most effective from their end is following up on the clowns that post on the likes of the hunt sabs or moorland monitor twitter and facebooks accounts bragging about this sort of thing. I understand that SGA are making moves to change the la
  8. Can't get hold of any. Presume most stocks bought up by the big estates and supply chain issues mean no more going to be around for the foreseeable. A keeper mate of mine changed over last year so he'd have time to get used to them. Reports favourable results. I'd like to source some of the 250 as mainly mink on the small spot I focus on. Not sure whether they'd even get through the required maximum baffle size to get onto the plate though!
  9. Don't think I've seen any other mention on here, so thought I'd flag up that the stoat specific general licence came into effect overnight. Full details of the licence available on defra website. Seems to me to effectively be a piece of paper with no real restrictions beyond what previously existed, save for the legality of certain traps going forward, so no doubt will attract the attention of WJ at some point. What is most concerning though is why DEFRA thought it necessary to introduce this at all? My understanding is that it was never a requirement of the AIHTS and I feel
  10. Ok cheers. I know sometimes it'll say not a PW member when they actually are Not a gunwatch member myself
