  1. Like them ๐Ÿ‘ thanks .
  2. ๐Ÿ‘ for posting , a very clear and simplified statement and hope it is all sorted out as understandingly and as speedily as your post from Mr Sunak.
  3. A shooting friend of mine had a senior moment with his gun and is now in need of a left handed stock for his laurona OU, has anyone got one laying around or any of you talented gents not too far away from Essex interested and able to make and marry one to his barrels ?
  4. Buy and use a food bag or garden plant twist ties, cheap and simple.
  5. Now I know what to do with the 2 sets of foam wings n tails and remote controler that I have kicking about, but definitely a leccy remote controlled version. TO THE SHED ! TO THE SHED ! AND GOD BLESS ENGLAND !!!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ
  6. A friend right shoulders his gun but is left eye dominant and is looking for an aid that can help with correcting/assisting with improving his sight line . I have no experience re this matter and would appreciate opinions of what is offered on the market.

    Daft Deny

    Just back from a nice weeks break in Cornwall, weather was great , very relaxing (not that I lead a hectic lifestyle) , it was sun , sea sand and forgotten the other thing one's supposed to do on holiday ??, but was very enjoyable anyway's. The usual looking at fields pigeon spotting when driving around , didnt see any massive flocks but enough here and there worth popping at for a days sport but never saw or heard one gunshot! Only downside a daft .old twit left my phone on the car roof and drove off from the Jamaica inn only to see it slip off the roof and disintegrate into pieces behind the car on a 70 limit main road, I wasn't tempted to to try and recover parts or the sim card dancing around the hurtling fast traffic. Now home and guess what , backed up numbers all disappeared and gone ๐Ÿ˜ž So anyone needing to contact me best to give me a shout on here. Denny
  8. I used at one time a cheap telescopic fishing pole with I think it was with the top 2 or 3 sections removed to make it stiff enough to handle a coy, eypoxed a hook into the top section for the coy. Closed down well and light , just had to make sure the joints were tight when out, think I whipped a little thread around the joints for extra safety against splitting and cracking .
  9. Many years back when I started shooting I read an article about crow shooting over silhouette crow decoys pictured from above , black cardboard I think was used but as I had some black textured vinyl type material I cut them out and used that material, folded up or rolled up nicely in the pocket and weighed next to nothing. Best bag if memory serves shooting over them was in the 60's
  10. Thats part of the problem at my age thats not so good, so spend time in the shed to keep occupied ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿคจ
  11. Well done, makes me remember the days teaching my son, those memories are cherished and hopefully will not to be forgotten as we age. ๐Ÿ‘
  12. Not had any problem with mine so far, on/off n speed control work ok withing usual range 35 mtr approx max, didnt purchase birds I use hypas or real, didnt purchase battery either .
  13. Movement in a pattern can help at times to draw pigeon from a distance and I personally use a rotary or flapper or two if I feel they are needed to do so ( I'm an ole f**t so the less gear I need to carry the better) But on saying that I always start with a static pattern to see the pigeons reaction, if they seem un-committed or I cannot get close enough to their flight line then I will add movement , if they are happy to come into static decs then I leave it as is. Taking time watching the pigeon before picking your spot and setting up is important. Use some spring sticks on your decoys to add a little movement by wind to your pattern, a cheap and easy way to get some motion in your decoys . If your handy with fiddling and fettling in a shed there is much you can do to make your decoys move on the cheap.
