  1. Hi, I have a free app on my smartphone called " Picture This" which is a plant ID app. I took photos of your pics and the app tells me the top one is a Fushcia Hybrid and the bottom one is Balloon Flower or Platycodon Grandifloris! Worth downloading the app, even if its just for fun
  2. Hi squirrel shooter. I have pm'd you re the Sunranger. Bob
  3. The police simply report the matter to the Procurator Fiscal in Scotland. He would then make the decision to bin the matter or take it to court. Happens all the time but for a report to be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal, there would normally be more than simply the word of one person.
  4. Not sure if you do your shooting in Scotland. Under the "reckless discharge/ reckless conduct" law which exists in Scotland, simply shooting in a field next to someone would not land you in hot water. There would need to be an element of "reckless" about taking the shot. circumstances which could constitute "reckless" is pretty much infinite but I would like to think that if the police were called by some anti shooter who complained about a shooter in the field next to his house, if you were safe there would be nothing to worry about
  5. I see where you are coming from but simply having permission to shoot over ground doesn't mean "your sticking to all the laws" if you fire when there are kids close by . The "reckless discharge" crime would be appropriate in such circumstances. Its under Common law and not part of the Firearms Act. I very much agree with you regarding the issue of shotgun certificates (and FACs) to people with little or no knowledge of safety and responsibility
  6. He was charged under common law for the reckless discharge of a firearm. There was doubt over the "safe shot" aspect. Hence police involvement
  7. Hi, In scotland we have "reckless discharge of a firearm" on the books which is a sort of catch all piece of legislation. The laws regarding certain distances from center of the roadway and having to prove that a road user was affected will be trumped by the reckless discharge which would apply in Scotland. It would all depend on the circumstances if a complaint was made to the police. I know of one shooter who found out to his cost that firing his cf close to kids and houses was not a clever thing to do despite him thinking he could because he had permission to shoot on the ground.

  12. martyn2233, Study published today seems to suggest otherwise- Study is first clear evidence that cannabis is gateway to cocaine and heroin Teen marijuana smokers are 37 times more likely to be hooked on nicotine Findings from Bristol University provide authoritative support for those warning against the liberalisation of drugs laws Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4582548/Proof-cannabis-DOES-lead-teenagers-harder-drugs.html#ixzz5H5RCRdbh Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
  13. Just watched her being interviewed on tv and she came across very well, much to my suprise. She also explained that the crossbow was not confiscated and that she surrendered it for forensic examination
  14. I was in a similar position. You can log in to the Govt website for pensions. You need a passport and driving licence and it will tell you the exact date and amount of State Pension you are entitled to. As yod dropper has stated, the amount does vary. I think if you have worked for 44 years you will be close to full state pension In answer to your question, you do not need to sign on or make further contributions unless you are short for obtaining the full pension and wish to do so.
  15. Hi guys, I live in a rural area and are friends with several farmers. A few of them let me shot on their grounds. My property is surrounded on all sides by either crops or cattle with only one neighbour. Anyway, unfortunately I have to deal with one family of farmers who are probably the worst people I have have ever met! The 40 yr old son is a violent thug with no respect for anyone or anything, irrespective of gender or age. Apparently threats and intimidation are the norm and all the previous posters who suggested (tongue in cheek) what to do to the moaning townie, this cretin has done it to his neighbours.I am ready for him when he turns his attention to me or my family. I would be delighted if his behaviour was like the farmer in the original post!
