    Charities CEO Salaries

    National Trust CEO allegedly £191,000 - the mind boggles because on the estate where we live there is no money in the budget to repair the tenants houses which are falling apart! I could write a book on the wastage and PC correctness!

    Shotgun problem

    Still see a gunsmith - might be something simple and at the same time have the barrels measured and checked for pitting. .410's were/are notorious for never being cleaned!

    Shotgun problem

    Treat the one in the middle as if it's loaded! Very carefully pop a cleaning rod down the barrel(s) one at a time with the gun facing away from you. Measure the length of the rod (or dowel) against the breach face - if you have a 2" - 2.5" difference see a gunsmith!! The lower gun with the octagonal barrel looks to be Belgian. Check the proof marks on the two that will open.
