  1. BSA ultra, in .22, impressed by easy to use and handle it is, pellet on pellet, 50 to 60 shots in the sweet spot, more accurate than I am, I used to have an air arms s400 classic found that to be cumbersome for the field, great for targets
  2. went into my local screwfix this morning , there was a erbauer impact driver and drill boxed set on sale, was either £58 or £68, didn't pay that much close attention I bought a Guild 18v drill driver with 2 batteries from argos for less than £50, over 3 years ago, must say have been impressed with what tough jobs it can handle,
  3. mines showing 19.8mpg round the lanes and towing
  4. put a cod liver oil capsule in both my dogs food every day, don't know if it does any good joints wise but both have good glossy coats. less than £1 a month
  5. had Simon do my Beretta EELL and DT11 on recommendation, really good craftmanship, worth the journey (nicer work than the one on the DT10 in sales)
  6. On the shoots I pick up on there is quite rightly no picking up around the guns whilst the drive is in progress, quietly, well behind is not a problem, if a gun is paying several hundred pounds to shoot they don’t want any dog, never mind some deaf to the whistle half trained mutt prancing around, distracting their attention from what they have paid for, There is no excuse for in front of, or around the guns, Some of these pickers up have the attitude to think they are more important than the people who have paid for the day, there is no shortage of people and properly trained dogs that can do it correctly right or wrong, op should have been sent home never to return for having an altercation with a gun, that is down to the shoot captain
  7. back in the day, when I was subcontracted out, the company charged £48 plus vat hr, I was paid around £16/£17 hr that was over 10 years ago
  8. I have used Patina with great success for many years, on my wading sticks as well as thumbsticks, I find it gives a pleasing finish, just give it another coat when required, first started using it after reading Theo Fossell's stick dressing book, as was recommended by him
  9. way back when I was a butcher, I used to do the pickling for my customers, beef tongue was in great demand for the festive season, also used to do quite a lot of joints of silverside, it carves better for presentation on the table, I will admit to just buying the brine mix from the butchers sundriesman, brine tub was handy for when you cut yourself, just stick your hand in and give it a stir, cauterised and sterilised in one
  10. even when I had my AA s400 classic I always fancied an Ultra, knowing if I did I would be sending it to JB to be blueprinted, they are small, light, easy to handle, I found the AA cumbersome, so I bought an Ultra second hand, its been away to be blueprinted, due to arrive back from JB before 1pm today, oiled the stock while its been away, was accurate before cannot wait to put it back together and try it
  11. I know of someone who was instructed to remove all guns from their house, for them to be stored elsewhere by their FAO. Upon further investigation by the FAO their certificate was revoked, FAO called round and collected it, so this person does not now have a certificate. This person is still shooting, how is this possible without breaking the law
  12. try standing it upside down overnight, have a pal swears this works, something to do with the gas, collects broken fridges, does this then sells the ones that work
  13. 17", I have a theory its the pirelli tyres on the back, will change them when they're down to 3mm, will find out then knocking about in the lanes 10 mile journeys there and back think its showing 44-45
  14. wasn't Gordon, that's why it was phrased like that, was the explanation for the lower than it could have been MPG so you can get off the high horse now
  15. I have a 63 plate 220 CDI, went to Leicester and back the other morning, whats that, around 300 miles, cruise on the motorways at 15 over, stuck to the limit everywhere else, returned 49.6 mpg, newer ones tacky inside, have a lower boot opening pal calls it a limo, comfy, refined, huge boot, a bit of tyre noise from the back depending on the surface, but I'm sensitive to that, will sort that at tyre time, mind got a big trans k9 in the boot, could be that resonating, cars a keeper, I like it, easy to fix, engine is supposed to be bullit proof
