  1. I am a Pigeon Watch member, gunwatch won't pull my details through
  2. This sort of thread annoys me intensely. Folk justifying killing large numbers of so called pest species of geese on the general licence. It does our sport no favours at all and would create great ill will if publicised by Packham and his ilk.
  3. Yep this is a pain and just lost me 2 sales from down south. Looks like will have to take the pittance of a px price l was offered.
  4. Have a pair of Dirt Boot neoprene chest waders for sale in size 7.They were bought new by me in September and have been worn once. Am selling as they are a bit long in the leg for me as am a shorty. Cost £60.00, will take £40.00 but are collect only or meet at mutually agreed place to do deal. Based in mid Northumberland
  5. Am very surprised at the number of replies here. Compared to the uae of single plastics (milk containers,water bottles etc.) most of us use the volume of plastic cases and wads is tiny. Will use plastic cases all of the time with fibre game loads and plastic with pkastic for fowling loads
  6. Good article on these guns in shooting times or sporting gun recently
  7. My aya no4 inherited from my father is IC and half or there about and has killed very long wigeon and geese with the right barrel. My browning 725 which is 4 years old has never had the 1/4 @ 1/2 tubes changed since l got it. My foreshore maxus us 1/4 choke and works fine for ducks and geese with itm, itx and hevishot from 31g to 5yg is 5s to 1s
  8. Have tried gunwatch too but again time wasters offering a lot less than asking or folk way out of area expecting me to travel a long way to meet with no certainty of a deal. May well have to do a part ex 2 for another but then that leaves me with another to sell when am thinking of packing up.
  9. Not yet. Really don't want to pay more fees for no results
  10. Has anyone had any success with Guntrader for selling guns? Had 2 advertised recently which cost a bit and all l got was time wasters and no hopers. I don't want to go down the part exchange route but just to sell them. Dealers values to buy them off me were a complete joke.
  11. Shooting branchers is I think out sated and unneeded. It's one aspect of shooting the general public will find objectionable and gives the antis ideal material to use against our sport. High time is was outlawed Insert other media.url
  12. Read the article in the newsagent this evening, the author knows nothing of modern fowling and should be ashamed of himself. The editor of the magazine can have no credibility or professional standard to allow it to be published. The author claims to be a game keeper - wonder how many birds are wounded on driven days and not picked?? Especially on so called extreme pheasants. The older I get the more I doubt the ethics and morality of large scale commercial game shooting.
  13. Thanks all, think the alteration route may be best way to go.
  14. Am looking for a 20 bore game gun with a proper rounded half pistol grip. So far have seen Brownings and Geurinis but not keen on the latter. Is it possible to get a Beretta 20 with a proper half pistol or POW grip without having to get a premium model? TIA
  15. Disappointing season. The new access restrictions at Lindisfarne have in effect closed a lot of good spots at high water. Think won't be bothering next season. Guns cleaned and ready for sale.
  16. is the stock original or has it had a recoil pad fitted? Cant quite see from the pic
  17. Then surely she should have been sent home, or was she a paying punter?
  18. Thanks for the help. Will use factory loads to start with and see if can get a pal to load some for me later
  19. The more l hear and think about driven shooting and large bags the more l wonder about the morality, ethics and acceptababilty of driven shooting. We hear repeatedly of birds being dumped and there being no real market for shot pheasants. Huge cost and big bags will be our undoing, especially if we get a left wing government. I for one am wondering if l should carry one or pack up and do something ekse.
  20. Am debating getting a 20 for game and foreshore duck. Anyone recommend any decent non lead loads? All I can find is expensive bismuth and 24g steel loads. Guess am looking for heavier steel loads or ITM/X if its still around.
  21. Quite right, don't call for things to be banned, just gives ammo to the antis. Yes phase out plastic wads but then they are needed for most steel/tungsten etc. fowling loads. Going back to all paper cases is not practical and its easy enough to clear up your cases at the end of the day
