    Car insurance ****ards

    Ah well. It's done now, I have the car - lost 3 weeks of tax due to the stupid DVLA rules (nearly £1.75...) and got the BlueTooth working. Hoping once I have some NCD again it will come down dramatically...

    I've bought it now from AXA directly. Just having a rant!

    Car insurance ****ards

    The 60 quid hike was not due to the claim - it was because I went back 2 days later. At least tax should be cheap and I'll save a bit on fuel

    Car insurance ****ards

    Had a blow out in my car last month and ended up writing it off by hitting a tree. Claim made on the vehicle only and despite the tyre probably going due to the dreadful roads around here, don't have any proof of that so had to be at fault. Anyway, decided on getting a 2nd hand VW Golf as need something economical and hopefully cheap to insure (no protected NCD). Went through all the comparison sites and quite surprised at how expensive it's going to be to insure. That said, the quotes were for 2 days ago and hopefully picking up the car today. They've all since gone up by £60! Cheapest I've found is £462 with AXA but even that's more expensive than the quotes I got 2 days ago... Quotemehappy.com wanted a grand...

    Poor shots and guilt

    I'm not convinced your motoring analogy is appropriate. You make it sound like he was being deliberately negligent whereas I read it that he took a shot which was well in range of the firearm he was using, and ended up with a wounded animal, which he subsequently dispatched. He's admitted he made a mistake and although perhaps he should just man up and get over it, I think the reactions on here have been way over the top (although in comparison with non-PW forums ;)). Maybe it was a fishing post by an anti, although I doubt it. As a professional pest controller I value your opinion much higher than many on here, but I think in this instance perhaps you should just accept he made a mistake and was worried about it and move on. You have a business reputation to consider. Rise above!

    It sounds like a clerical error. Don’t get wound up about it. Call them and ask

    .17hmr

    A 2 acre square plot has sides that are almost exactly 100 yards. If you have permission to shoot in the surrounding fields then I don't think you'll have a problem getting an FAC. Go for both 22lr and 17HMR - bound to be someone local who can let you experience how loud it is - it's not that loud, quieter than a 12 bore certainly

    .17hmr

    You could learn to stalk closer to your rabbits so they are in range of your air rifles. That said, you have good reason to acquire an FAC although whether your FEO would clear the land I don't know

    I hope you do stick around. You'll learn to separate the wheat from the chaff (and there's a lot of chaff). The experience you had is just the kind of thing that prompts joining a forum. Don't let the armchair snipers put you off.

    Speak for yourself. I've never missed. I have fired a few warning shots, mind
