  1. In my sixties now and suffering a bit, enjoy game management side a bit more. New rifle in cabinet for 10 days now and still havent zeroed it ! Overall 5/10. Pheasants and ducks.
  2. Hello Picardy, I may be able to help you, i run a small syndicate rough shoot over 3 farms with pools. Release ex layers, shoot Wednesdays. Plenty of dogs so not a requirement if you don`t have one.. Target on the day is 2 x birds! although we often have more. You may have guessed its not about numbers. There may be a vacancy possible. Cost is 450 pds . pa. Plenty of duck/geese. Approx 4 miles from Telford. Not sure if it is what you are looking for . PM me with a bit about yourself. Dont worry if reply is a day or so, not always available..
  3. First car was a Wolseley 15/50 bought between 4 of us for 20 pds after a party. We drove straight to Wales for the weekend after I had got a cover note 3rd party. Car lasted 3 days before we wrecked it. God bless the 1970 s .
  4. I will bow to superior knowledge. Plus I finish in 10 minutes for the weekend - so im off.
  5. Is it too late to take it back.?
  6. Fixed chokes - better patterns , hate chokes, skb 25 inch sxs improved cyl. o/u miroku skeet. exception my old English webley sxs. Tight as a ducks whatsit. Cant bring myself to let anyone loose on it.
  7. I shoot 20 and 12 sxs on game., prefer the 20 now especially with partridge and like you thought of trying 28. A couple of guns in my syndicates use 28 and seem to manage ok however last Monday one of them forgot his cartridges and ended up ********.no one else had any. I think availability and cost of ammo might be a concern, but 25 yd birds all day.
  8. What a shocking programme. , Why have the BBC funded the purchase of 2 x delightful antiques, paid 5k. Paid production team air fares to USA and then given them to police for "safe-keeping".. Yours and my licence fee funds this drivel. They could have at least re sold them through the auction houses, might even had made a profit. Were all doomed.
  9. Hi Matt, Very interested in vacancy. have 3 yr old working cocker, sgc, fac, basc and countryside alliance. all my own teeth. seriously, run my own little rough shoot Telford area which shoots 6 Saturdays this season. also in semi formal syndicate that shoots Wednesdays. will be giving that up next year after several years as I prefer the smaller scale. 63 yrs of age , relatively fit. can supply references if required. 07922546087. steve.
  10. I would be interested in the full package but my wife thinks all day would fry her brain, so a smaller competition would suit nicely. Never been to this ground, would it be suitable to bring my 2 spaniels, To save leaving them all day. (not to retrieve clays !) They will help out with the bacon butties, Keep me in the loop please. Regards. Steve.
  11. West Mercia have/had a vacancy for head of firearms dept. recently at below 40k if I remember correctly. I think most of these positions are filled by retired/ex officers anyway. Resources are limited but Best practice isn't happening. Good old time and motion study required. Regards.
  12. Good morning Lloyd 90, Phew, my idea of militant is swelling the ranks of shooting orgs and applying pressure on them to be more forceful. Yours might be more direct, but there is not really very much we can do as individuals. Long term I think were up a creek.
  13. Hi FSE10, For reference, application submitted plenty early enough as required. 8 week extension has only just been implemented. my 1st temp expired without the second being received. It only came 8 days later after my e-mail to firearms dept. I would not take a gun with me without some form of authority. Judges don't always follow nods and winks. As stated, very poor service all round.
  14. Hi Dougy, I'm not saying they are being difficult. Just that the admin process has become something of a joke and spiralling downwards rapidly. Some parts of the country are excellent. Some are diabolical.(As detailed on this forum) A renewal should be routine. Thank God my FAC is not the same date. Regards,
