  1. Game cartridges

    I rate black gold and the slightly more expensive dark storm. I ordered some of the new(ish) on the market express supreme super duper turbo power cartridges. They are very nice to shoot. Going to stick with both. 28gm 6 black gold for sensible stuff and express 32gm 5 for sky rockets and walked up.
  2. This is what part of my extension is. Was still cold until we got the log burner.
  3. The legislation IS from the GOV.UK web page. I don’t think you can get more relevant. Incase you haven’t read it, here you go - You can’t use: a firearm that can hold more than 2 rounds of ammunition in the magazine. But you know best, so I’ll bow out of this discussion
  4. Funny that. If you read the screen print from the gov.uk website as far am in concerned it does. But you crack on if its legal.
  5. I will admit i’m wrong when you show me this as fact.....
  6. “You can’t use a firearm that can hold more than 2 rounds.” I see the words ‘can’t’ and ‘can’ as significant. Try asking for a FAC semi or .22 to shoot game and see how far you get. I still stand by my original post. If anyone was shooting Pheasants over my shoot boundary with a .22r/f I would inform the police and allow them to make the decision on the legalities. I run a game shoot, with feeders (literally) across the boundary road and they shoot regularly. I know I can’t do anything about it.
  7. I suggest you also read the legislation. Unless you know more than the UK government
  8. Had I released the pheasant on the ground and found you had shot them with a ‘illegal’ firearm then I would bite my tongue. Same circumstance using a rim fire (and I would think 95% of people who have them for sporting use hold more than 2 rounds) I would be straight into the FLO.
  9. NOW TV

    Dumped 3x sky+ boxes and was paying £80 per month. I now pay £30(ish) per month and have the same stuff on 8 tvs / electronic devices. You have 4 devices pet account, but can only use 2 at once. I wish I knew about it sooner.
  10. Defender 90

    This is my mates. He's had it for a long time and he bought it off the guy who supplies us our game birds, if he didnt have it from new, it must have been nearly new. If I had the dosh, I would buy it. https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/landrover-defender-90-td5-2003/1273400020?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=ios_social
  11. which crossover

    Ive done kuga, mokka, quasqui and now have a 17 plate x Trail. In rank order - Nissan.
  12. The "walk / stand " pheasant shoot.

    50/50 split and fixed teams, draw peg numbers, walk / stand swap each week. A few years ago I was in syndicate where the old boys werent physically able to beat, the younger chaps found it funny how they could walk up Everest if it got them in the hotspots.....
  13. Thoughts on 28 bore guns?

    Nope. Unless I was rich!
  14. Thoughts on 28 bore guns?

    I have a browning cynergy in a 28. Light loads between 16 -25 restrict the range. 25 - 28gm 5 shot will handle 90% of what a 12 can do with normal game loads (say 28-32gms). Had mine out on a rough shoot today, lovely to carry and quick to the shoulder.
  15. looking for permission

    This ^. Throughout the country there are syndicates ranging from £100 up to £20,000 allowing you shooting all year round. You may need to travel, but the access is out there.
