  2. They were often repaired with a through screw threaded into a diamond escutcheon plate or round threaded metal boss.
  3. `Oh goody`said the turkey,Christmas is almost here ......
  4. More treacle adding to the goo that shooting is mired in ! A waste of space.

  6. Love my Sportacs,they replaced a pair of Sordins that always bumped the comb of stockExcellent sound quality and I`ve had several years of regular use with no issues whatsoever!
  7. This exactly! I recall watching Caper in Speyside 30+ yrs ago ,seeing several in one wood! They could be seen near to grantown then.At that time i can recall the incredulity that keepers had been dispensed with on the Abernethy reserve which was a Caper stronghold ...........i guess despite the input of all of the `expert` knowledge that it is not now!!!!! Very sad that these people are ruining our rare species .
  8. Another species that the `conservationists` have all but eradicated with their nonsensicle scheming.
  9. Older Eley cases used a different size primer to 209`s . Surefire ? comes to mind.... Nobel 78 was more suited to 7/8 oz loads.

  11. Putin & Co must be quaking in their boots at the thought all of the sanctions !!!

  20. That may be so but if the Tories wish to save the situation,the ordinary people have to see tangible,lasting benefits in their communities and lives .
  21. Yes really,if they want those who switched over to elect them in previously Lab heartlands to do so again !!! At the moment they have not done much to persuade them to do so ,which is a crying shame.
  22. Yes ,that is all true ,the tories have to have a steadier hand at the wheel quickly IF they want to win the next election. Boris has indeed turned out to be the liability many forecast ,personally I thought he would do better but I was very wrong!!!!
