  1. A mate of mine has a 425 browning elite grade 3 with 28 inch barrels,he has bought a 20 bore so no longer uses it,he said i can have it for 500 quid so had a go with it last week on the clays.i missed very little with it to be honest it just felt right for me.my renewel is going through at the moment so hopefully i will be able pick it up soon,still undecided about the gold e will see how things pan out with the browning.
  2. I have been toying with the idea of changing my gold e for a browning,i mentioned this to the guy at my local dealers and he pulled a face and said 32 inch barrels are out of favour at the moment,people prefering 30 inch,i must admit its news to me anyone heard of this in your nect of the woods?
  3. I have a bsa airsporter in 177.it shoots really well with field target trophy pellets, have tried crossmans,rws,eleys.and it does not like them at all just wondering what other pellets would be ok to try.
  4. I bought a raffaello about eighteen months ago brand new,paid just under fifteen hundred quid,from day one it gave me problems with cycling the second shot,spent hours stripping it down and cleaning it, put heavy loads through it made no difference,it went back to the importers and they replaced the lifter and another part,apparentley its a common fault,when i got back it was fine never had a problem till i part exed it for a wincester sx3 sporter,must have put two thousand cartriges though it with only one miss feed i also have a a armsan 612 which up to now has been as reliable as the sx3 for a third of the money,in my honest oppinion benellis are way over priced for what you get.
  5. The crown looks fine,the gun will shoot accurate with field target trophy,really wanted a pellet for plinking in the garden that wont break the bank.
  6. I have a airsporter s in 177,i have been trying to find a pellet that suits the barrel,super domes,crossman premiers,hobbys,wasp,dont suit,up to now field target trophy are the only ones that are accurate if anyone has a airsporter in 177 just wondering what what pellets you find to be accurate.
  7. I have a tasco 2.5x32 scope,it came with a airsporter i recently bought, its in good condition but the magnification isnt powerfull enough for me,just wondering if its worth much,its got made in japan on it so its one of the better ones,undecided wether to hold on to it or sell it.
  8. Its in the lap of the gods,just be honest when you fill in the application,it can depend on were you live,i live on the wirral and my authority is merseyside and they wont give an inch,apply and be honest with them good luck.
  9. I got it back a last friday,its had the buffer washer and o,ring replaced,its putting out 11.1 foot pounds at the moment,tried a few different pellets and it shoots quite well with superdomes at 25 yards,yes i agree its not super accurate but its fun to shoot,so will keep it just for that reason.
  10. The s model has the metal work nicely blued and a walnut stock,some had two stage triggers but mine has a single stage,it also has some checkering to the forend and pistol grip,i will do my best to up load some picks when i get it back.
  11. Picked up a bsa airsporter s in 177, the owner had died and the family wanted shut of his air rifles,it was seized up,would not cock,so a good soak in oil and got it to work,its in excellent condition, the blueing is like new, the stock is walnut with some type of varnish applied,having the o ring and buffer washer replaced,will be looking forward to shooting it when its done thanks to my mate len,not bad for eighty quid.
  12. R P G on the bonnet would be a far better idea,its been a long time coming.

    canabis oil

    I have been on the cbd oil for three weeks now,and to be fair there has been a small improvement in my discomfort,still got about a third of the bottle left so will finish it and give another bottle a try,i have a short course of accupuncture booked in late november so hopefully will help aswell.
  14. A shoot i go to on a sunday had stands that were enclosed with metal sheeting,a guy was using a lanber over and under,he loaded two shells into the gun and closed it barrel up the thing went off and blew a ruddy geat hole in the metal sheeting just missing my mate,his reply was it just went off,never saw the guy since,the stands have been replaced with concrete panels now,the moral being if he had closed the gun correctly the shot would have gone into the ground and not scared the s... out of me.and possibly killed or injured my mate.
  15. This is true,my brother is taking two of his shotguns,according to the feo its happend before the dog has bit other dogs in the past,the owner of the other dog is a serving police officer,apparantly he has taken time on the sick with stress,he has been given three weeks to sort out his guns or they are going for scrap,the dog was in the yard with the gate open,the guy was walking past with his dog,so i presume the incident happend on the pavement,as said any excuse to take guns off decent people.
  16. It was on the radio that it costs around three granda week to keep people locked up,time that by fifty weeks in the year,it soon adds up.
  17. A friend of my brother has had his shotguns and firearms removed, his dog bit another dog outside his property,the feo has said he has comitted an offence by not being in control of his dog.Any feedback would be appreciated.

    canabis oil

    I have had surgery for prostrate cancer,its two years in november and i am still geting some pain and discomfort,the tablets i get off the doc goes some way to relieving the discomfort,so i decided to give cbd oil a try,its only been a short time but i am getting some benifit, just wanted to get some feed back.
  19. Had it a couple weeks ago as well as a pneumonia jab apart from a sore arm and feeling a bit low have been fine,in fact the pneumonia jab was more uncomfortable for about a week.
  20. He didnt get any tablets off the doc,thats the concern i have,there is plenty of info on the net if you take the time to have a look.
  21. Done a bit of reseach and it says a lap top gives off radiation,which in turn can damage your dna if used direcly on your lap over a period of time,a friend of ours went to his doctor complaining of pain in his nether regions,thought he had prostrate problems,the doc asked him if he used a lap top direcly on his lap.it turned out he did,since using a tray his problems have got better.
  22. My wife and i have been discussing the possible health risks to using a lap on your lap for prolonged periods of time without some form of tray,just wanted to run it past the wise and informed members on here.
  23. I bought my first sx3 about ten years ago and to be fair i shot well with it and it was faultless,i just got bored and fancied something different,had a couple of berettas they went the same way,i did buy a maxus in the wood and to be honest it didnt do it for me,i was using it on a clay shoot one sunday when the spring that sits in the forend broke,the bits damaged the action,sent it back to browning and they gave me a brand new gun,i kept it for a bit then sold it to a mate he had it a short time and sold it on,the second sx3 was a composite which i had for over a year and partexed it for a benelli, that was a big mistake,a nice gun but the recoil was an issue so that was partexed for a sx3 sporter which for me has to be the best auto i have had up to now,hopefully it a keeper but who knows
