  1. Mine was due 31st May, forms in 12 weeks early. Multiple emails and phone calls, all unanswered, eventually got an email saying my certificate is automatically extended for 8 weeks because I put forms in early enough. Finally had a phone call on 31st of May saying renewal all fine, new certificates haven't arrived yet though.
  2. It tastes delicious using goat meat.
  3. https://www.fwi.co.uk/business/payments-schemes/bps/lump-sum-exit-scheme-to-open-in-april-with-up-to-100000-available Its not been snuck out at all, there was consultations last year.
  4. Mine never had a trouble with high brass cartridges, shots probably close to 1000 big steel loads through it and the only problem I had was with a pin getting stuck down inside due to lack of cleaning and it jamming the whole action up
  5. My dog is named after Frank, a fitting name for a Fenland fowling dog. The idea was given to me by my fowling mentor at the time, former forum member ayano3, who when we wen't to see the litter, said he'd call one Sid if he had one.
  6. I've got relatives buried in that grave yard, it's hard work finding anyone in there! A walk down the east lighthouse and a sit on Frank Harrisons bench is another one worth doing, whatever the weather.
  7. Injured dog, moving house twice and a baby curtailed most of my shooting, but I've done well when I have been. Still time for a few more flights.
  8. He will be sorely missed in the pheasant shooting and wildfowling communities. He did a tremendous amount for new members, He took me under his wing 10 years ago and we still kept in regular touch despite me shooting elsewhere now. I was lost for words when I recieved the call on Friday. He was taken well before his time.
  9. Given that the cameras can show the shot, i'll be able to see if i'm consistenly behind or infront. A coach cannot tell me that from the clay ground. May i suggest unless you actually have a useful suggestion about camera choice, you naff off somewhere else. You're just an unpleasant old troll
  10. Perhaps time for a hard cover? Less convientient but less likely to be a seal hammock! You couldn't dream of keeping a punt at moorings round here, it'd be stolen or sunk
  11. Thank you, I though someone would have experimented with them. I've seen some that are 60fps which might be more suitable.
  12. I do spend money with a coach, but that coach doesnt then come and sit beside me on the foreshore to see why I'm missing geese. Also, what does that have to do with cheap barrel cameras? Are you going to recommend one?
  13. Hello all, Has anyone tried one of the cheaper barrel cameras of ebay or amazon, sub £100 range? I've no desire to spend £500+ on a shotkam, I'm not shooting videos to share, just enough to see when/why I miss. thanks mat
  14. The trouble is, they're more wall hangers with a limited audience than practical pieces these days. Its a shame but that area of our sport is dissapearing. Is it the only punt gun you have?
