    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 60) 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.

    B.A.M. .22

    I'll get some added tomorrow if I can, either on here or I'll send them via PM. There's a few small marks on the stock but nothing of any concern. The rifle belongs to my mate and I gave him the scope to go on there, and chrono'd it for him. We both shot a few rat's with it the other day. I'd have it myself but already have 3 sub 12ft ones.

    On the ground, usually placed on a mound, and always with a safe backstop. Too dangerous to put in a tree with the calibre's I'm using.

    Plastic eggs, via AliExpress (China) I use it all year round, as it' doesn't seem to bother the Corvids. The frame, is glued onto a plastic base, then the twigs are glued onto each other. I've also glued the eggs in place and, since the photo was taken, have added some other plastic eggs that I cut in half and put some yellow cotton wool inside. Yes, that's right. It's never failed to work. Finding the time to use it is my biggest problem.

    IR filters

    Excellent. I've used an IR filter on my Cluson Blaserlite (2 million CP) and it 'light's up' the whole field.

    I was asked (again) about the nest I made to attract Corvids. This is it, and it's worked well, especially with Magpie's. I set it out around 80 yards and either use my .22 Hornet or my preferred .204 Ruger.

    My Wife (once again)

    Yesterday, my wife was speaking (on the phone) to a sales assistant from Triton, who make shower units. She wanted to know if we could replace our old one (10 years) for the same, to avoid drilling the wall etc. The assistant asked her what model we have at the moment, and she replied Bezique, but pronounced it 'Bez ee kew! I would have loved to have seen the sales assistants face! Do your partners come out with some beauties?

    hatsan 12 bore 3 shot

    Nothing wrong with them. Just make sure you keep the piston etc clean, and also the little gas bleed hole that's in the barrel. You should also use the correct length cartridge too.

    IR filters

    I agree, regarding the filiment bulb, but my IR filter (I bought a small sheet via Ebay) only reduced the range by approx 40%. It worked well for me, but I suppose it depends on the thickness of the filter.

    Likewise, I would be interested in the bullets posted, if not sold as a job lot.

    Case Lube

    My mate asked me about it, but I have some made up, and it's lased for 1000's of rounds, plus I've found it much better to use than factory produced products.

    Case Lube

    Can anyone recall the items required to make your own case lube? I know one of them was Lanolin, but have forgotten the other.
