  1. As per the title. Anyone have one of these please?
  2. Sorted now. It doesn't appear to like Firefox on my laptop. Works fine with Microsoft Edge (which I don't like!).
  3. Has anyone actually used (successfully) MedCert for getting their GP proforma completed? I went to their website this morning to see what they offer but it doesn't load. Are they still in business?
  4. There is some very good info. on Auto 5 shotguns here: https://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=216472
  5. Have you tried looking at https://www.disco3.co.uk/forum/index.php ? There's loads of first hand knowledge and experience available and no Green Oval haters!
  6. I've got a S & B 2.5-10x56 Klassik with medium Optilocks on my T3 Hunter(s). Gives just enough clearance to fit a defender flip-up cap.
  7. Monarch "Munro" work for me. Sensibly priced and made in the UK.
  8. I've had a couple of dogs with renal insufficiency in the past. The first was a Basset Hound that was a dustbin when it came to food but he wouldn't touch the specialist renal food whatsoever, dry or wet/tinned. I had a very similar reaction with my old Lab girl until I tried the Purina NF Renal Function Mousse (tinned). She found that palatable where the other stuff wasn't. She ate that for about 18 months then overnight decided that was it and refused it. I'm not sure any of the specialist renal foods are that attractive. Probably best to try him on one brand and if he doesn't like it try an
  9. It's the Haix that cripple me - not the Defenders!
  10. I have the Alt-Berg Defenders and they are very good, comfy out of the box and as long as you keep them well greased they're totally water proof. I recently bought Haix to replace them as the Defenders are getting a bit past it and I cannot get on with them - they cripple me! Seem to have difficulty in finding new, unissued Defenders in size 8 wide for some reason...
  11. I had one on my Tac A1. Nothing wrong with it as such, nicely made, but I found it a bit too lightweight for that particular rifle. I now have a Tier One Evolution on it which is far superior but it's also much more expensive.
  12. Try having a look here: https://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=216472 Somebody has done awful lot of research on the Auto 5! Edit; Just realised the above link only goes as far as 1940, yours is later, but it's still some interesting research.
  13. Yes, I did and he's from good stock, I spoke to the right people at the right time and fell on my feet. Still can't quite comprehend what happened with the Zuricks (I bought my first Clumber from Debbie) and then Jim Winter; been a bad year for the breed as they were pivotal in the resurrection of the Clumber as a working dog. However, I think there are now enough enlightened people to keep the breed alive and flourishing. Hopefully...
  14. Nine months old and knows how to get really filthy already!
  15. I tried one many years ago whilst on holiday. Bought it from Halfords in Taunton and fitted it in the car park outside the shop. Never replaced it for the rest of the time I had the car. It worked incredibly well, so well in fact that I bought another as a "come in handy" thing but never had recourse to use it. It's still in the workshop somewhere. Just keep everything totally grease/oil free and take your time.
