    Gun dealers comision

    I do a lot of commission sales; mainly on lower value guns. I charge 25% plus VAT on the commission. I have a minimum fee of £50 I pay out after at least one calendar month has expired, just in case a fault develops on the gun and the new owner requires a refund. I agree a sale price with the vendor based on market research. I book the gun in, write the sale description, take the photographs and post on Guntrader for sale, and pay the advertising fees for as long as the gun takes to sell. The do the usual by handling the sale and license paperwork etc. Some guns /rifles sell quite quickly, others not so. The likes of Holts charge 25% to both seller and buyer. I reckon that the average gun take about one hour from start to finish, some take much longer when detailed enquiries are made and dealt with. Many sales are made remotely, and send via courier to another RFD, whilst the courier fee of £25 is paid for by the purchaser, the cost of packing, time and materials is carried by me. webber

    O2 bottle to fill pcp?

    I'm not sure that you have understood the gravity of the information you have been given. I can tell you exactly what the thread is in the cylinder valve, just by looking at your basic pictures. i own and run a cylinder gas company. I really do know chapter and verse what I am talking about. If you can't take note of sound advise, shame on you, and good luck, as you are seriously unlikely to walk away from your error of judgement. webber

    O2 bottle to fill pcp?

    Under NO circumstances should you use oil or grease on OXYGEN fittings or valves. Under NO circumstances should you attempt to fill a PCP rifle with OXYGEN. Elevated levels of Oxygen enhance combustion. Read up on the Dieseling effect and see the results of those who failed to heed sound advise. webber

    Non affiliated club.

    Many of you already know that My son and I run Rixton & Astley Shooting Club. We became a CPSA Affiliated club a couple of years ago. For me it was a no brainer as we got free advertising for the shoot in the PULL magazine, and a FREE Safety Officers Course, which Young Webber made good use of. We did get a quote from the CPSA nominated insurer, but we stayed with our existing insurer via Blufin. I agree that it difficult to see what CPSA does for Affiliated clubs, but their check list of requirements for affiliation is worthy of completing for any club, just to ensure that you have all the bases covered. Club insurance for accidents is basic. I would strongly urge all those who go shooting to join either BASC or CPSA. webber

    All Change at Astley Gun Club

    Despite our setback, the shoot goes on; albeit a 50 birder for now. We are investing in technology to deter and detect. Yesterdays shoot was quite well attended with several new faces. Many thanks to those who shot the 100 birds, the shoot requires the revenue to survive in the short term and thrive in the future.

    All Change at Astley Gun Club

    We just have sufficient traps remaining to put on a 50 bird shoot on Sunday. Hopefully the regulars and Members will shoot the 50 birder twice as a 100 bird shoot. The club will need to generate funds to replace the traps insurers are bound to do their best to minimise the claim. I've spent a lot of the day searching out receipts and invoices. How do you find a receipt for a quad bike you bought for cash over 15 years ago. Hopefully Pauline will feel up to turning the house upside down.

    All Change at Astley Gun Club

    Grandson Jacob and I arrived at the shoot this morning to find the gate lock on the floor and the gate open. ON entering the car park we discovered that the orange container had been broken into. A count of traps has shown that 16 traps have been stolen. The Kawasaki quad has been wrecked and the Honda stolen and found burnt out at the location for transfer to removal vehicle. Gutted doesn't start to describe the feeling. A planned job for sure; Greater Manchester Police seem disinterested. We will be shooting on Sunday, but the 100 bird shoot will have to go onto the back burner for quite a while. We've been left with less traps than we had when we took over 3 years ago. I'll post again tomorrow when I've been able to work out precisely what traps we are left with. All of the traps are uniquely marked.
  13. I was advised yesterday by a customer, that as of 1st. May Merseyside Police are following a similar route to that of Lincolnshire. I did my best to advise, sadly he is not a member of BASC or any other shooting related organisation. The man has an appointment to see his Doctor about the matter, but he has already be advised that the practice will not participate with the Police request for a Doctors letter. I have advised him to request copy of his medical records to be forwarded on to Police with a covering letter. webber
