  1. Mounted mine above the skirting board on a block of wood. Faked up the front of the wood with an offcut of kitchen worktop that was the same colour as my cabinet. No issues when West Mercia Police inspected it. Rich
  2. Brilliant result, very impressed. Good to see a youngster out having a go as he will be the future for the sport. Good photo with the lad holding the gun with its safety flag instu. Rich
  3. I own a 2005 Subaru Forester. Its a 2l petrol and averages 30mpg on Super Unleaded. Not the most economical vehicle but its up to 188K now and I should think 200K plus should be possible. Its had various components replaced, radiator, water pump self leveling suspension on the rear but on the whole its been good. Its not had any electrical issues unlike my colleagues driving German metal. Probably the last of its breed. Permanent 4WD with a Hi-Lo gearbox. When it goes I have no idea what to get next. Just looked on AT and still a few around with sub 100K on them.
  4. I've been reading this thread and totally agree with Gordon R above.
  5. Had a very similar target at a clay ground by me recently. The target was part of a sim pair representing something like decoyed pigeons coming in to land. Taken as a sim pair you had to attack the target shooting underneath and just in front of each bird. This I found easier than taking them as singles on report. The O/R target sucked you in and you could end up rifling the target and missing behind and probably over the top. I found the best technique was to shoot gun down as you had to wait for what seemed like an age before the target got to the kill zone.
  6. Will be interesting to see how many Shogun Sports Mitsibushi sell which to me looks like their version of the Foruner.
  7. Chew Valley Lake is probably the best pike water in Europe when you look how many big fish it produces. This winter has been poor though by Chews high standards with many sighting the very hot summer as the reason. As regards ticket prices, BW Fisheries can charge these amounts as demand has always outstripped supply.
  8. As others have said : Breaking Clays by Chris Batha Positive Shooting as stated above. Not really what you are after but also worth a watch are the CPSA's video 'How to Hit series'. This is ''English Sporting'' orientated but the same rules apply. Rich
  9. Hi Stuart, Looking at AA Route Planner you are 5hrs drive / 300 miles away from me. Probably a bit too far to make the deal work. Regards Richard
  10. By chance I have an Orkney 440 that I wish to sell. Where are you located Regards, Richard
  11. I will take them if you can keep them until Xmas as I am down your way from Xmas Eve until Saturday 29th Rich
  12. As Quentyn recomends above. I also have a pair of fortis overtrousers with cordura nylon reinforcement. They are a recent purchase but agree with quentyn that they apear bombproof. Rich
  13. When I started pike fishing best part of 35yrs ago lure fishing in the UK was still in its infancy for mainstream anglers. Lures were relatively expensive, generally of a small size and only a limited range available in my local tackle shops. No proper 'lure' rods were in general supply but people did use 'spinning' rods. Everyone was into bait fishing round here and the only active way of fishing practiced was sink and draw deadbait fishing, particular successfully by the late John Sidley The advent of soft plastic lures along with the advent of the opening up of the Trout Reservoirs changed the game. Now loads of people get out chucking lumps of plastic about including me. I have not got into drop shotting yet but as I keep reading and as demonstrated by you in the right place its very effective. Tight lines, Rich
  14. Nice result. I would have loved to do 6 fish in 2hrs! I was out the other day down on a midlands river and did not get one follow on a lure after beating the stretch to a throth and had 2 aborted takes on a static deadbailt that was most likely to be small zander. Rich
