    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.

  1. 70mm are the ones to use, irrespective of shot size.
  2. Spot on Lloyd. Write the date on the sachet when you installed it, and replace every 12 months. Also, don't leave your cabinet door open for too long. I've used the sachets for many years and have never had problems.
  3. Use a product called Copper Grease (Halfords etc) on the threads. It works wonders. Hand tight and a tad more as you mentioned. Also check the chokes regulary to make sure they haven't come loose.
  4. Planning (hopefully) to attend. It was formerly called 'The Practical Shooting Show'. https://www.targetshootingshow.co.uk/
  5. I’ve got the FAC 8 shot one. 1000’s of cartridges put through it and never failed me. Just keep it clean and use the correct length cartridge to avoid it jamming.
  6. These can only be purchased at a minimum of 1000.
  7. Happy memories of using it. I can't remember what I paid, but it was around the £400 mark (1986) I believe. I'd love to own one again, but our lovely government don't trust me/us to have one. I may consider a long barrel pistol when our shooting range opens.
  8. Very nice. Sadly, our government won't allow us to use such firearms anymore. Back in the 1980's I had many full bore pistols, my two favourites being, S&W 686 .357 magnum and Ruger Blackhawk .44 magnum.
