  1. That's very true. As for the location, I'm not entirely sure - I'm currently away working in Italy and only know that it's somewhere not too far away! But you're probably spot on with the barbed wire and thorns... It is Cumbria after all.
  2. Yes properly on the foreshore so I'm expecting things to get quite messy!
  3. Thanks for the advice guys. I've been looking into what you've said and I think the layering option might be the way to go - much easier in terms of temperature regulation and easier to swap-out when things get properly mud up!
  4. Thanks for the replies chaps. Perhaps something along these lines? I've heard good stuff about them so I've been keeping them in mind! I did broach the subject of a decent pair of waders a few weeks ago with him but I think he'd rather have the coat. At the moment he only has the jacket he uses for game - very green and not at all in the wildfowling spirit of things!
  5. Hello all. As I'm sure you are well aware, the wildfowling season is fast approaching. This is particularly exciting for my stepdad and myself as we have managed to secure some wildfowling rights for the very first time. Also fast approaching is my stepdad's birthday, so it would seem the obvious move would be to buy a suitable jacket for the usually difficult man in question. The problem, however, is that I am completely unfamiliar with the most effective waterproofing and camouflage solutions that are on offer nowadays (my shooting is currently limited to clays and game). If it helps at a
  6. Thanks for your replies! :-) It has 70mm chambers. I've shot steel through it before - 32g 4s. I only ask because my step-dad and I share cartridges: we shoot with the same syndicate and share storage facilities. He would like to buy some high performance loads and have us both use them - providing its safe for me to do so! :-)
  7. I was hoping I could pick the brains of some of you Browning experts. I have recently purchased a 2002 Browning Ultra XS 12G with Midas Chokes (Invector Plus 30"). I have encountered some confusion as to what type of steel shot I am able to use with it. Having checked the barrel numerous times, I am unable to find any Fleur de Lys symbol; though the Browning website states that the Ultra XS 12G with Midas chokes is proofed for high performance steel. http://browning.eu/products/mresult.php?group1=1&group2=1&group3=106&submod=A-XSSPR My gun differs slightly from the model pi
  8. Great advice. I'm 6'3" and I'm lugging around a pretty heavy Bettinsoli at the moment so shouldn't have any trouble there.
  9. Thanks, I'm going for a look round a few of my local RFD's this weekend and I'm not going to rush into anything.
  10. Hi guys. I'm new to Pigeon Watch and shooting in general really. I've seen a Beretta 682 X advertised online and I think it looks to be a pretty good deal. It comes with 5 mobilchokes and the makers case. The gun itself is a RH 30" model with adjustable stock. It'll be used mostly for sporting and maybe some driven game in due course. Does anyone have experience with this particular model? There's lots going around about the Gold and Gold E but nothing much about the X. I've attached a couple of pictures so please take a look. Thanks.
