  1. Someone told me they used vaseline to finish a silvers pad they had fitted. Cnt vouch for it but might be worth a look into.
  2. It's whatever you feel comfortable in and how you view the day. I mainly attend farm shoots, 8-50 bird days but usually always wear breeks, colourful socks etc, because I enjoy to and I like to make the most of the few days. Foxing, pigeons or whatever is different. It was the same with rugby, some didn't want to dress up after a game but I always liked shirt, tie and smart shoes, especially after a week in Steel toecap's and hi-viz's.
  3. I bought one with game birds on it a few years ago, very comfortable with shirts that would otherwise be tight around the neck with a tie. I like the look of them, but I also don't care how I look when I'm back down the pub after, starts a conversation with the locals! P.s I was early 30's when I got it.
  4. It's been covered on other threads. BASC + £100k investigate in game processing + A new game meat org. backed by an MP + contract waiting with meat firm supplying Waitrose = Lead ban
  5. The paper is written by the Labour Party. Might as well have been written by the RSPB. What importance does this paper have?
  6. Certainly something to consider for the future. I think asking for an image of the person's certificate is a good shout. You can tell them it's to cross reference the person who shows up on your cctv (even if you don't have cctv!) Might put off criminals try their hand at your place.
  7. Imported by BMW Arms aka browning UK. Don't know how much involvement Fabrique National (owners of browning and joint owners of miroku as well as others) had with the Medalist or knew about the gun at the time. As I understand it, Medalist's were brought in by the UK Browning agent and shipped out to retailer's; dealers put 2&2 together and got a "Browning Medalist" with no mention of the company anywhere on the gun or packaging (so I believe).
  8. Drew a blank. He never stocked that model and can not find it in any of his catalogues. I wonder if its an 80's/ early 90's model with a short production run.
  9. Thanks I'll do that. Still no luck on the Internet!
  10. Has anyone heard of the above 10m put over pole. After 15 years away from course fishing I started again the other week and picked up one of these poles the other day. I can not find anything online about the model what so ever. Any info (years produced, origional price, etc) would be great.
  11. After doing my research on the first five authors to this paper and finding out that as well as writting articles for their universities, they all work in some capacity for the WWT, I didn't bother looking up the final 3 as there seems to be a clear theme to this paper. 1. Is this paper not going to be biased on the lead issue as it is written by employers of the WWT who wanted lead shot faised out by 2017? 2. Why is a shoot org promoting the work of such potentially biased papers by those who wish to see the shooting of birds stopped altogether?
  12. Done it a couple of days ago. Whether they pay any attention to my concerns is another thing.
  13. Don't know? I only researched the link between BASC - a food processing company up north - Waitrose. I did talk to a big partridge shoot keeper who said a lot of his days are for wealthy Middle Eastern clients. Every bird is packed up and flown back with them. Not sure where they stand on lead.
  14. Turkey dinosaurs or chicken nuggets. If she was interested in cooking pheasant or partridge she or the other half would be involved in shooting in some way. Like someone said on a different thread before, "if there was a market demand, they would be farmed like chickens and turkeys and not shot at all".
  15. It does nothing to put shooters in a better light. Those who want to know about shooting and Conservation will seek the truth, those who want to seek an end to blood sports will always continue on their quest. For everyone else they really couldn't give a fiddlers f*rt.
