    Shooting, Shooting, and a bit more Shooting!! Hunting on my days off.I have been shooting since the age of 12 (air rifle) I acquired a shotgun certificate at the age of 15 and a firearm cert' at the age of 25. (now aged 62) I used to participate in pistol shooting, in the good old days when they were legal, and owned many full bore & small bore pistols. I have represented Wales twice in International DTL clay shooting and also represented my county (Mid-Glamorgan) for many years.My shooting now consists mainly of vermin control - crow,pigeon, rabbit, squirrel and fox. I also did Deer stalking for a few years. One of my many other interests is photography, which I have been doing for at least 30 years.

  1. I have just purchased a sample pack/s of the above. These are .217/5.51mm and are 21gr / 23gr / 25gr / 27gr and 30gr. If anyone is interested in trying them in their FAC air rifle, I can provide 10 of each weight. Price is £10 posted. I paid £21:00 for them.
  2. The spay stitches look good but I'm not too sure about the head ones I've no doubt that they will heal soon, fur will cover it/them and we can put this behind us. Hopefully no more visits to the vet. Insured or otherwise. Look
  3. There's some good offers for binoculars, rifle scopes and spotting scopes at Uttings at the moment.
  4. A matter of opinion of course. I went last year and did enjoy it, as did my mates who came with me. No, there weren't any 'bargains' to be had, and we took our own food/drink. It was good though to meet up with fellow 'shooters' and also to see the lovely expensive shotguns and rifles on display that one day, I may be able to afford. As mentioned, entry is free and four of us sharing the fuel cost, works out very little each for an enjoyable day out.
  5. I've got two bottles, a 7ltr and a new 3 ltr composite one, which I will take with me when going to the farm etc. Although I drive a non commercial vehicle, I'm thinking of sticking a sign on the back window anyway. That's what I was thinking.
  6. I did mention about this some time ago. Who intends going this year? I am and have free entry thanks to my BASC membership.
  7. I was chatting to a friend of mine, who told me that his brother, a keen airgun shooter, was stopped by police on a routine check. He informed the officer that he had an air rifle (PCP) in the boot of his car, and duly showed this to the officer. He also had a 3ltr air cylinder in there as well. The police officer was okay but did mention that there should be a 'Compresses Gas 2' sign on the back window. Personally, I don't know if this is law, or something the officer just 'made up'.
  8. This was Meg's head when the Vet removed the scab. It was full of 'cheesy pus'.
  9. Our young dog (10 month old Cockapoo bitch) had two operations yesterday. One to have her spayed, and the other, to remove a 'growth'? from her head. When she was younger, she had a 'lump' under her skin, which grew slowly. It ended with a sort of scab. We took her to the vet who shaved a part of her head then broke the scab off. It revealed a 'hole' and when the vet put tweezers into it, she pulled out fur. The vet said that she'd never come across this before. She brought her spaying operation forward by a month, which did worry us to be honest. Anyway, the operation/s went well. The vet said that it appeared that something was under her skin which caused the lump. It's been sent off to have it tested. Meg now feels sorry for herself, and a bit subdued. She appears to be confused and just stands still in the lounge/kitchen. The vet said it could be 24/48 hrs for the anaesthetic to wear off. Hopefully, all will be okay with her. The photo shows Meg's head after her op'. I can't find the photo I took of the 'hole' in her head. I paid the vet £783:20 in total. We were quoted £350 for the spaying, the rest for her head op'. We've got her insured, but not for the spaying, as that's not included in the insurance, and have to pay the first £100. The vet said that she would try and put as much as the other op' onto the insurance, as that's not covered. But at the end of the day, how do I put a price on my dog?
  10. My friend recently took her Guinea Pig to the vets, knowing that it was dying through old age. By the time she actually spoke to the vet, it had died. The vet checked it's pulse and said, Yep, it's dead. Price - £51:00 thank you very much!
  11. Yes, it's been a few years, but I'm at at loss on what we chatted etc about? I've got memory loss due to me having the Covid virus in 2020 so that's my excuse! I haven't got anything at the moment, but hoping to have a bash at some Crows/Jackdaws in the near future, plus some feral Pigeon. There wouldn't be any charge other that the postage, which would be a few £. I've supplied birds like this in the past. I'll contact you in due course if and when i get some. Steve.
  12. You can buy a sleeve with a 1/2 x 20 UNF thread, that slips over the barrel and is tightened by grub screws.
  13. Would you be happy with frozen Corvids/feral pigeons and posted to you?
