  1. But this is an interesting read https://bioammo.es/leave-no-trace-behind/ Two years to decompose if composted longer if on the surface, is that really a suitable replacement for current fibre wads? The eco plastic wads Eley are using are gone in days. In temperate conditions, our ammunition will biodegrade within approximately two years They will biodegrade on the surface, although a little slower as there are fewer micro-organisms. However as the wads are brown they will not visually pollute the enviroment either.
  2. Gas seal, you have obviously found away to make the cartridges that suite and work for you, well done, but that is not an option for the majority that shoot the challenge is getting shooters to swap from a lead shot fibre wad cartridge at currently around £240 per 1000 to steel shot eco biodegradable wads at £419, paper cup wad £349. or bismuth at £1221. Per 1000. Assuming they can even be made in sufficient quantity. It’s a very big ask for the average working class shooter, who must either accept the extra cost, shoot less, or give up live quarry shooting all together, or continue u
  3. Conor, that is disappointing but not surprising, I do not personally go wildfowling but have friends that do as members of a club will only shoot for their own table and if we’re found on club ground with lead shot cartridge would be expelled from the club. In my experience, game shoots however that end with a duck drive certainly are not policed in the same way and with many land owners requiring fibre wad cartridges to be used the choice until recently has been bismuth shot which being very expensive has not gained any traction. And it will be these ducks that most likely end up at t
  4. Conor, if at the end of the government review they conclude that the health and environmental issues far out weight the “key principle of, that further restrictions on lead ammunition must not be imposed until effective and affordable types of sustainable ammunition are available in sufficient volumes to meet demand.” argument, Then clearly then the rug has been pulled out from under basc feet as you can only but agree with the such a conclusion and embrace a total ban on lead. Then it will matter not that their is no effective and affordable sustainable ammunition in suffic
  5. if they do not take the sgc what stops the person as soon as the police leave going and buying another gun? And if need be then some cartridges (they may have not handed all in).
  6. Sadly I do not think your GP can help, they will have removed them due to the potential as they see it of the behaviour escalating between you and your adult child. Once the police were called to what they probably classed as domestic violence their was likely only one outcome. Probably now at best a calling off period at worst your certificate revoked and told to reapply in a few years. No quick fix I fear, good luck and put your health first. Write to the firearms manager requesting they phone you to discuss the situation.
  7. I must shop in the wrong supermarkets or with bad mannered customers.
  8. So as you have described it, your rfd lied then as they did not sell the gun and the law was not followed as the seller did not make the entry on your certificate. Very smooth indeed.
  9. Grounds must follow the current covid legislation, maximum group size six (max five CPSA recommendation) and the individuals in the group must maintain social distancing. You certainly were polite and could have very good reasons for shooting on your own to minimise covid risk for example if you have family or medical reasons to avoid unnecessary risk. The ground owner if informed should act to ensure compliance, covid is not history yet.
  10. So what did the rfd write on your certificate, sold, given, or other ? for the law is quite clear the sell is legal responsible for filling in your certificate.
  11. Indeed and why the implied discrimination toward a female jockey, I would think it is a easy sport for men and women to compete on equal terms. congratulations to the winner.
  12. Indeed but when you go to collect the gun from the rfd it was sent to he will check your FAC at that time before handing over the gun, if the photo is of Micky mouse and not you I guess they will not handover the gun and will call the police.
  13. Happy to be wrong, every day is a school day, interesting that for the .410 you can create a virtual slug load with a single .36inch ball and four tiny 1.8mm other balls and it is still section 2 cartridge, then so be it.
  14. Not what your suggesting, it is somehow linked to the bore size or area with the minimum number of maximum size pellets. so you cannot put one .36 ball in and five or six number 9 shot and still be section 2. Think about it the law is not stupid and would not allow such a simple way round the law regarding section 1. Hopefully somebody will be along with the full definition of section 2 cartridge, if not feel free to speak to your firearms licensing officer.
