  1. Congratulations Tiger on winning The Masters.
  2. I am afraid that many people have been elected to BASC Council purely on their social media skills and have done nothing or very little for the association or its members . I think Council could do with a new broom , not people who make a career of being a council member.
  3. Easiest answer is to buy a 'drilling' , but by the time you have faffed around unloading the rifle barrel and reloading a shotshell the quarrie has ******** off . To consider the other option of converting a shotgun to a rifle , you may be better off spending your money and time on Nintendo.
  4. I think that rather than criticise each sportsman , we should actually criticise the Editor and the so called journalist. For more than fourty years I bought every shooting magazine . But since Edward Watson died and Shooting Gazette have not replaced him, Shooting Times publishes drivel since John Humphreys died and all the other magazines are worthless and pointless . It is better to just enjoy your sport, you certainly will not get educated by the current journalists who all appear to be still wet behind the ears.
  5. Scully, I think the point is there is a great deal to learn about punting , time , tides , wind speed , cripple stoppers , sculling , etc. etc .
  6. I would also recommend Joe Neville as he is local to you . If you are still struggling at a later date please pm me as I specialise in eye issues for clay shooters as well as giving tuition .
  7. This is a very interesting debate and we can all voice our concerns and opinions , but the fact remains we are a captive market . We have some saying that fibres are more expensive to produce and slower to manufacture , but then we have Gamebore saying their machine loading fibres is the fastest available . None of this explains the extortionate prices charged for Game cartridges . " We only do small production runs ", "Obviously we use a greater amount of shot" etc., etc., Total marketing rubbish , we sadly are just being ripped off . The performance between Fibre and Plastic wadded cartridges is negligable , if we all shot fibres we would have a level playing field and be helping the environment in reducing plastic litter, paper cases are also viable and cheap enough to buy . But manufacturers want less hassle and easy money.
  8. B725, Super looking dog . What time will you have finished your Nut roast? Bloody Vegans , I think they all need a good dose of lead. I used to work with a vegan athlete , who openly admitted he had to supplement his food with various tablets. But back to the subject , congratulations on having such a dog that has engraved his memory on you for life . We never forget any of our dogs , good or bad , all have fond memories. But the superb ones live on for ever .
  9. B725, Sorry I can't collect Stan tomorrow , will Sunday be okay . Don't worry about paying me I'll do it for free , just this once.
  10. " Lucky to get the Editor of Shooting Times, he is always off shooting somewhere or other ! " Or being replaced by the next aspiring non competent. Shooting Gazette has to be the worst magazine of them all . Thankfully after 50 years I have stopped buying any of them . All of them are reprints of previous editions but with a report of the last free shoot the editor or their minions got invited to .
  11. I have read the Times article and seen various links to this . It is a Leicestershire shoot , look closely at the video photographs , not all the birds have been breasted , some are complete (possibly not fit for human consumption). But the evilness in all this is that it was filmed by Hunt sabotuers , West Midlands League against Sports . So obviously the faceless ones were trespassing. Will anyone prosecute them or cause an outcry????? We need to realise that there are lots of unsavoury things happen in life . What should a small shoot do if it had a lot of diseased birds and no incinerator? I do not think that what as been filmed is correct practice , but I think it is causing far too much adverse publicity . I didn't receive much support when I was accosted and abused by Sabs at Boxing Day Hunt meet in Newport Shropshire , should I have lashed out and been prosecuted for Assault or causing an affray ? ( I was spectating with my working dogs , not part of the hunt ).
  12. Are the Purdy cartridges for sale ? Also interested in Purdey cartridges if for sale please.
  13. Westley , I believe that is correct . When I say a variation of two different gauges , I did not mean to include what may now be termed obsolete gauges . So don't include 14 bore , 24 bore etc in your calculations . IE 20 into 12 is dangerous , 12 into 8 is dangerous etc., But best safety of all is, DON'T MIX CARTRIDGES.
  14. Bazooka Joe said , Don't worry Scully, BASC will be all over like a rash, you never know professional legal advice might be taken.... I commented that Bazooka's medication is not working , if he believes that.
  15. I highly recommend Mike Norris Unit G2 Sandford Industrial Park , Whitchurch SY13 2AN 0845 5212995
