    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 was informed by S.W. police that there will be an extension added to certificates if they expire after April 1st, but you are advised to get your renewal application sent in asap.
  2. UPDATE: Well, I had some good news this morning. I had a text message asking me to contact the firearms department (all working from home) to discuss my renewal application. I phoned this morning and spoke to a really nice FEO. The only thing he wasn't sure about was why I requested 'another' .308 moderator, when I already had one. But then he could see that I was using it for my .243, and I also explained that the 308 rifle I want to purchase, comes as a package, including a moderator. He also said that the permission letter I obtained to go stalking, was okay. He said that he is now finalising everything ready for the Chief Constable's signature, and because of the 'lockdown', I won't be getting a visit (so the HobNob biscuits are now mine!) My certificate expires May 20th, and my renewal (coterminous) application was send it at the end of February. Excellent service again by S.Wales police, especially now with all the upheaval etc due to the lockdown.

  4. It's strange, because when I bought my first Primos caller, I managed to get it to sound like Crows on my first attempt. Perhaps I was lucky! I still consider the Primos the best caller out there though.
  5. Henry Krank is good to deal with. Postage will be around £4:00
  6. Not one that you mentioned, but I have an Escort Magnum FAC (8 shot) and it's never let me down. 1000's of cartridges have been put through it with no problems. I made a video of me shooting the 8 shots in under 2 seconds. Mine is only used for crop protection and not Practical Shotgun.
