  1. Having a big sort out. Did anyone ever use these cardboard decoys. ???. I've found a big brown envelope about 50. Don't recall ever using them.
  2. Found a couple of these in the cupboard anyone still use them. Thought I might give them a try.
  3. Update on the franchi affinity have acquired some lyevale nitedal 24g 7.5 steel . There working really well on decoyed pigeon and cycle no problem and cheap .£164 a thousand.
  4. I think it's the same everywhere too warm and so much maize still in. Also a lot less rape this year with flea beatle problems. We may have some better results when or if they can get on the maize.
  5. Haven't tried any clay loads in the affinity. Use it mainly on pigeon. Occasionally on geese. But will say it's far better than the armsan and lot easier to clean.
  6. I've got the affinity now. The armsan is still in the cabinet after the locking bar sheared still haven't got the part though. Rubbish warranty and service. Springs are available now from chambers. I wouldn't recommend armsan at all.
  7. Eley ct 24g 7.5. For pigeon Eley grand prix 25g 6 for everything else. Kent (gamebore) 24g Steel 5 is also a very good cartridge I'm using more now. That's what I've found performs best in my silver pigeon 20g choked 1/4 and 1/2. Too many people overload a twenty gauge for various reasons but you just don't need to. 👍
  8. Old pop up tents are a good source.
  9. Sounds just like the one fitted to the ff5. Give nick tate a ring very helpful chap.

    Try Ibstock tackle and gun. Gamebore stockists. Reckon they think about selling them every day.
  11. Yes I will. Many thanks Steve. A mine of help and information as usual.
  12. Assume that's mcavoy guns Standish.
