    Left hand auto

    By the way, I have a LH Webley and Scott plastic and camo job which I picked up for peanuts and apart from not liking any cartridge less than 70mm which with a 3.5" chamber is pretty normal has been totally reliable on the marsh. David.

    Left hand auto

    Left handed autos aren't so easy to find. You might struggle to find one in Beretta or Browning. Benelli or Franchi might be worth a good look. David.

    Sunday shooting

    Just remember, it is the county boundaries as they were in 1954 that counts. (Not 1952 as I stated earlier, sorry.) Not the current county boundaries. David.

    Sunday shooting

    This is a bit of a can of worms. You can shoot in some counties on a Sunday, but beware the county boundaries are those that were in place when the legislation was passed. (1952 I think) This is one of those times your BASC membership will pay off as they have the definitive answers. David.

    BASC Council Elections Yet Again.

    I haven't seen him on here for a while. I have been in touch by email so he is about. David.
  7. It is that time of year again. We need someone sensible and well grounded to stand. I failed twice so have learned my lesson, I am not the person people want, but we need representation. If you are a BASC member please think about it. David.

    Browning BPS Hunter 12 gauge

    I've got one so don't need another. Brilliant bit of kit. Go for it. David.

    Boxall and Edminson

    We don't actually know anything yet! They could be moving and setting up a new factory or going bust.. Peo;le shouldn't talk companies down on the sort of information we have at the moment. People's jobs might be at stake. Can't we be a bit more responsible. David.

    12v winch info wanted

    A second hand Tirfor and a long cable might do the job. Good solid pull, easily portable, but a bit slow and uses muscles but the things you can shift with one is remarkable. Also reasonably easy to pack away and transport to secure storage. David.

    They shall not grow old

    In the first world war "Brigadiers" were actually ranked as "Brigadier Generals" which is one of the reasons for the statistic I quoted. What is also interesting is, like women, most of the young men who went off to fight didn't have the vote either, when women got the vote after the war an awful lot of men did too. Interesting times. David.

    They shall not grow old

    No, lack of modern communication meant they had to be pretty close to the front, and the fact that it is a good idea to spread confusion by shelling the command so that confusion reigned meant they were pretty well a favourite target. David.

    They shall not grow old

    No I meant General Officers. Officers of General rank. This really is a pretty well completely ignored truth. David.

    They shall not grow old

    Just to make a point, the "lions led by donkeys" phrase was coined in the 1960s by a particular group of people who had nothing to do with the First World War but wished to make money out of a theatre production. Although there were many disasters there the fact is that as a percentage rate General Officers had a far higher casualty rate than ordinary soldiers. David.

    Auction question

    Depends on the auction. But roughly 20% is common. Lose 20% selling and pay extra 20% buying. The action will have the fees shown on their web site and in the catalogue. David.
  18. Join BASC anyway, but, as I understand it, they will not be able to help you with this because the event happened before your membership commenced. If you join they might give you verbal assistance though if you phone them. Best of luck. David.

    Performance of 'traditional' vs 'eco' clays?

    OK, just asking. We say steel shot but it is really soft iron. I have had to move over to it for wildfowling and it works at sensible ranges. David.

    Can't you shoot with steel? David.

    Ssangyong Musso

    You don't see that looking out from the inside!!!!😁 David.
  22. The heavier rounds carry more energy down range (muzzle energy isn't the whole answer) and in Scotland you have to use 100g round for deer bigger than a Roe. Might have something to do with the comment. David.

    Debenhams now!

    There is a need to start rating the on line warehouses as retail. This will level the playing field a bit. David.

    75 Bird Charity Shoot 21st. October

    Really well done John. It shows great courage bringing so much good out of you personal grief. David.
