    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. That's what I did (camo bandage) and it solved 99% of the problem.
  2. I agree. I've used Open Office for a few years and it suits my needs.
  3. I've never known this before. Any chance of a photograph of the scope/rail?
  4. I always use Copper Slip on all my chokes. It's meant for brakes, but works well on chokes. Available in a tube from Halfords etc.
  5. I was on Tramadol for shoulder/knee arthritis, until my GP refused to prescribe any more (I only took 2, twice a week at the most) and was then prescribed Co Codamol 30/500. Apart from numbing the pain (not 100% though) I'm lucky not to get any side effects (including the Tramadol)
  6. Thanks for the nice comments Mel. I really enjoy doing this every year, now in year 17. As you and most know on here, it all started with my late son, when we used to collect Acorns etc and just plant them somewhere on the farm. Since I lost him in 2003, I've expanded it big time now of course, and I estimate that at least 1200 trees have been handed out across the country, the furthest being the Isle of Lewis. If only 50% flourish, then I'm happy with that. I've just been given well over 300 Acorns which I hope to plant. If anyone wants some to try and grow themselves (easy!) just let me know
  7. For Sale: The above die. Used twice and in excellent condition. £11:00 posted.
  8. For Sale: The above Bipod. Extends to 27 inches (from base to end on leg) Smooth legs, spring loaded for quick retraction. Solid Base not swivel. This bipod has been used a handful of times and has been in storage for the past 4+ years. Now surplus to requirements. It is in very good condition. Sell for £80:00 £70:00 for quick sale, inc next day insured post.
  9. Yes, there's a few, some dating back over 200+ years, but for the past two years, they haven't produced any Acorns. My thanks to B725 & Digger79 for the Acorns. Much appreciated.
  10. I'll check what's there. There's a few who have already asked for some, so I'll share them out. I'm planning on growing a few 100 Oak next year.
  11. Yes please. Happy to cover postage. PM sent.
  12. I'll try and work out what's what.
  13. I've got some saplings that are ready to move on. Not sure what some are, but there's a mix of Oak, Beech, American red Oak and Walnut. I don't want anything for them apart from the postage.
  14. Correct. I had a message back from my friend in Egypt, and someone there confirmed it.😀👍
