    Retired early and spend most of my time shooting vermin over a number of farms. Crows are a favourite around here. Also shooting deer and fox a few days a week keeps me off the streets.

  1. All round better solution. We have to focus on the principle not the cost. We are in charge and the sooner the EU understands that the better for all.

    ^^^^^ This. It looks a well dodgy account to me.
  3. Does anyone buy music anymore?
  4. Yep I guess we will have a stronger hand then and will easily be able to get a better deal.
  5. I guess your fingers are stuck.
  6. Sticking your fingers in your ears does not make this stuff go away. Tell me why anyone of the possibilities listed is unrealistic.
  7. Mine too . I am looking at a shooting 'Shed' as a firing point on my outdoor range to control and contain a little of the noise and reduce any disturbance for neighbours. I will line the shed with rubber but will need to give some thought to ventilation.
  8. Veganism and vegetarianism are far from a 'fad'. whilst its certainly for some, a phase, that they go through for others its a firmly held view of what they believe is the right way to run their lives. I guess there are many holes in the argument to be truly vegan as many aspects of life will contain some element of animal involvement. I have a niece that is very firmly vegan and I took great delight in winding her up about eating figs, telling her that they could not be vegan as most contain the bodies of wasps. Veganism is a growing movement and I would guess is naturally linked to a climate change agenda even if ultimately the argument looks to be on shaky ground.

    Divided Britain

    I think most people would agree that Democracy is the way forward but as we have seen there are many ways to interpret the results of it and in any case it is not a static thing. It changes over time and morphs from one state to another. The purpose of Democracy is to fairly represent the people. Unfortunately history is littered with examples of where the will of the people has been distorted for the benefit of a few resulting in change that very few wanted. Whilst a simple leave remain stance may imply a polarised difference that cannot be reconciled the reality is surely that we are all looking for principally the same thing and the answer must lie in the middle.

    Divided Britain

    There are plenty of examples from history where commentators mourn the times gone past. Remembering how good the past was and how fearful we are of the future reflects human nature to be comfortable with our knowledge of the past whilst at the same time being uncomfortable with our lack of knowledge of the future. Here are a few quotes. Socrates. “The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.” Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: you find the present tense, but the past perfect! ~Owens Lee Pomeroy If you're yearning for the good old days, just turn off the air conditioning. ~Griff Niblack

    Sinn Fein

    I thought the idea of getting someone from a named 'profession' had died a death long ago. I would challenge the notion that they are any more worthy than anyone else.
  12. Depending on where you are your FEO may often treat them as all the same ie fac air rifle whatever caliber whatever energy. I think you want to have something firing sub sonics accurately. The energy level is less important. I was looking at a 100 ft lb FX the other week which was impressive but in many ways its too much or not enough. I have a sub 12 that is used as much as my fac.
  13. Is it UK dairy going to Malaysia now?

    Divided Britain

    We are far more united than divided. We are just trying to face the reality of our changing status as a nation. Most people still want the best for the country. The media and our access to information and lack of ability to handle the data has much to do with the apparent division.
