  1. That’s it then; I can see you’ve thought it through. 👍
  2. Still no rain, nor a distant rumble. 🤷‍♂️
  3. Of course you are, but your opinion is illogical. It makes no sense whatsoever.
  4. You could cover everything in sheets anyhow, if theres plastering going on; sheeting just one object in the room may look odd. I’ll bet he doesn’t even give it a glance.
  5. I’m no fan of BASC at all, but just think through what you’ve written regarding their agenda being the end of UK shooting.
  6. Still no rain. 🤷‍♂️
  7. Down the line or DTL is very similar to your OP, also started gun up but with full use of the gun, meaning both barrels are used. My mate shot a lot of DTL when he was younger, and became very good at it, and although I’ve shot it intermittently, we both shoot mostly sporting now. Despite what some think, when you’re actually participating, it isn’t boring at all. I for one am pleased you posted the film, and have watched it several times. It’s a shame I couldn’t get a closer look at the guns used, especially the pump ( Model 12 you say ) with a Monte Carlo comb, and what looks like a single barrelled Krieghoff.
  8. Was watching some house martins flitting about an hour or so ago, and bang! down swooped a Sparrowhawk and nabbed one! First time I’ve ever seen that happen!
  9. Bring it on! Then I can go home!
  10. Indeed, and not just the old ones! 🙂An ‘habit’ual problem? Maybe it’s not as good as you think? Not a drop! 🙂
  11. Thunder and rain forecast in my part of Cumbria for today; so far it’s bright and sunny and as dry as a nuns doodah, with no sign of rain. Same for tomorrow, but with even more rain. We’ll see.
  12. If ‘any future decisions’ had in fact been based on evidence, as BASC now claims it must be, then we wouldn’t be in this mess. Is it me? 🤷‍♂️
  13. Sounds like a good day. It’s great to be out, even in this heat.
  14. It’s not a question of throwing in the towel at all MM. There are no losers or winners in this at all, that was never my intention at all. We see things differently that’s all. Thanks for the kind offer, but we both have cool boxes now and the freezer is full. Thankyou.
  15. Have just watched it again; there’s something quite relaxing about watching that! 🙂
  16. They were Country Covers at one point, before becoming Fortis, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t Arktis also? I wouldn’t know. 🤷‍♂️
  17. 😀 And there you go again! Picking fault and adding insults; you just can’t stop yourself can you? You started ‘picking fault’ remember? If you’re in any doubt as to who started criticising who, the threads are still there for you to check! And you claim it’s me that’s sad! You know absolutely nothing about me, or the range of land we cover, but that’s by the by; we do a grand job of looking after our landowners, and they’re happy because we do what they want when they want it ( not the other way round ) and we aren’t just playing at this, like some, and that’s all that matters. Have fun. 🙂
  18. Yes, Fortis is good stuff also. I have had a pair of their salopettes for quite a few years now; their Dad even had flies put in them for me, so that shows how long ago it was. Good gear. As with anything usually, you only get what you pay for.
  19. I’ve seen some try and eject empties into the bin on a stand; I don’t mind it, it just looks awkward and actually harder work than cupping the ejectors. Saying that, the ejectors on my 8500 don’t half connect if I’m not careful! 🙂
  20. Fair enough, but knowing it was empty it wouldn’t bother me personally. It’s good to see experienced ‘old boys’ shooting DTL; they all seem very slick and relaxed. It can be quite amusing to hear the different variations of the word ‘pull’ also! 🙂 Thanks again, for posting. 👍
