  1. Agree with this G, I think Fauxdegla charges £31 or £32 comp and obviously Catton is £30. It's enough. I think the nearer grounds get to £40 the more shooters they risk losing to B/O, it's a bit like shells, I know people who flat out don't want to break the £200 barrier for a thousand carts. Superbs for example are over £200 now and it seems to be that cut off point where a lot of people say 'too much' and start looking at alternatives. Same with the Comp & B/O situation for a lot of competition shooters. Obviously you 'expect' to probably pay a bit more at selection shoots. Need to
  2. I tend to use palm sander if I have no gun grade cleaner. lol
  3. You need some special secret phrases, 'allo allo' style......'Good moaning. I was peesing by the door and heard two shats'. Lol.

  5. Think your best bet is to send timps a private message, he is the man to ask when it comes to snap caps. Send him a message asking for some input.
  6. If you can, try and shoot as many white clays with him as you can, he loves them.

  8. Saw the cowboys today at Catton complete with semis, spurs and stetsons. Mr P shot nicely after a dodgy first stand and finished on 90, I had 85 but the real star of the show was Maxus who shot an 83...which I think was his personal best. Well shot fella. Brett Winstanley was leading with a 98 (I think), though I think somebody else put the same score in as him also. It was a high scoring comp, I think there was an 86 leading C class. :blink: Despite the poor forecast, we stayed largely dry apart from the first few stands.

  15. Currently running a Dewalt DW712 and it's been very good, and it's twice the saw with the stand....especially for repetitive cuts. Using a Freud blade and it gives excellent, very clean and accurate cuts. Used to use a little Makita non sliding chopsaw for workshop use, also good but a little agricultural lol. The new Makita saws also look good though. Money no object the Festool Kapex is fantastic but mega bucks.....hard to justify the extra over a Dewalt, especially for site use. Much prefer Makita power tools/batteries as a whole though.
  16. Cheers fellas, very much appreciated And with regards a decent coach....well thanks Chard....thanks for all your tuition over the last couple of years, it really is very much appreciated mate. In all seriousness if anyone is looking for a coach then don't look any further than PW's very own Beretta, saviour of many a lost cause at Sporting clays.......and he can shoot a bit as well you know.
  17. Oi Craig can you send me a link to that post on SG World cheers (pm it if you like), can't be bothered wading through the forums looking for it?
  18. It's the rain Al, I started shooting at Llandegla so it doesn't feel right unless the rain is horizontal and it's as cold as a witches t it.
  19. There is also a 50 bird sporting every Sunday at Wyre Gun Club in St Michaels (not far from Preston), friendly people and the targets are a little easier than Blackpool or Lupton if that's what you're after.
  20. Great place to shoot Ed, shot there a few times and enjoyed the targets, lovely part of the world and I always thought the clubhouse was spot on, especially if you get sat in front of their roaring fire after a cold day.
  21. Pippy Oak or Burr Elm. Rosewood is also nice but probably too much for a shelf , nice for inlays though. Again you would need a specialist....John Boddy Timber used to have a catologue full of exotic timbers but not sure what they carry these days in the more exotic stuff given current climate. Had a lot of oak and ash off them in the past and they were good to deal with. They are in Boroughbridge so about 1 1/4 from Derbyshire.
  22. Pass on my best wishes to Ron as well cheers.
  23. Red wine on keyboard moment cheers Matt.
