    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. Its certainly not clear cut but reading the stutory guidance to the police I can understand why, they are caught between a rock and a hard place. As you say the lack of consistency and the approach taken certainly looks ripe for challenge. I understood that BASC took advice and were told there was little chance of winning a case?
  2. I would love to see a challenge but how can BASC challenge the police for following their own statutory guidance and ignoring the advisory guidance given to shooters. I dont think there is anything to challenge.
  3. Good news from our failed Government at last. Where is the industrial stratgey
  4. Well done FH1 and a great shot to kill ratio. Surprised on the aching we sometimes shoot four to five hundred shalls a day, every day for a week in africa and no aches and pains. In UK when I shoot a large bag if anything aches it will be in my legs from the constant standing and sitting.
  5. Now that is something I would love to own (a working one of course). There is something about owning a piece of history. Mate of mine has an old Purdy it came with the original buyers details and a list of the work done to it where and when. It's traveled across europe. OK as a shotgun but so much more with the history. I used to dream as a kid of owning a ruger black hawk pistol ever since I saw it in G&A 😂
  6. Whatever deal you get ring up and get a better one.
  7. Lets not conflate the the basic BLM principle of equality with the anti capitalist etc durge. Your right we are not the US but look above at the comments listed here and the problem is closer to home than many lead themselves to believe.
  8. Priti is *****'s boss not Khan. ****** = Cressida ^^^^^^ This would be a starter for 10.
  9. And that is precisely why we have the BLM protests.
  10. The government doesn't care about the BAME communities, in which case the police don't have a cat in hell's chance.
  11. Not so sure this is correct as the information given by the HO to the police is at best ambiguous and could be seen as conflicting with the HO advice to applicants. Hence the lack of a legal case to go forward. Following extract from Statutory guidance to Chief Officers. This guidance sits alongside the non-statutory Home Office guide on firearms licensing law, and the College of Policing Authorised Professional Practice (APP) on firearms licensing. Whilst there is no legal duty to follow the Home Office guide or the College of Policing APP, these are provided to assist chief officers in interpreting the law and setting operational practices respectively. 1. The provision of relevant medical information from an applicant’s GP is necessary in order to determine the level of risk to public safety arising from the grant of a certificate. The certificate should not, therefore, be granted or renewed if this information is not provided. The police should follow the procedure set out below.
