    Always been an outdoors person, grew up in the sticks of Northamptonshire but aged 18 moved to Birmingham and went city soft for 14 years but now back out in the Worcester countryside. Always had air rifles and shot on mates farms etc as well as lots of fishing but married life and working for myself meant saying bye to fishing but hello to more short session shooting. Have SGC and Browning 525, also member of shooting club and FAC. Recently joined a DIY syndicate so looking forward to first game season. Am yet to ask fellow members to take me shooting but only a matter of time...

  1. maybe we're making this too difficult but option a is attach a drone to each chicken and fly them over the guns, option b is airdropping a load of chickens from a plane and having the guns lie on their backs to shoot vertically as they drop?
  2. A trebuchet could fling a chicken quite a distance I imagine?
  3. Hey SuperGoose75 - is this your wish? https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30512662281&searchurl=pt%3Dbook%26sortby%3D20%26tn%3Dwhite%2Bhawk&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title6 I've just received a copy of Art of good shooting based on this thread and look forwards to reading over the weekend
  4. Remember before Instagram when you had to physically take a photo around your friends and acquaintances and ask them if they liked it and then record it in a big ledger so you knew how many likes you had! Also Nigerian Royals would have to write to you to ask if you would be able to help them shift $100,000,000 in exchange for keeping a small percentage! Different times
  5. I quite enjoyed that and will watch again next week, I don’t know anything about pigs but that enclosure looked like they will all be on the run imminently? also slightly annoyed at the other guys attempt to scare off the pigeons with a few wild shots, surely a couple of hours under that sitty tree he could have put a dent in the numbers?
  6. brace for impact... or lack thereof
  7. According to some legal eagle on the news it won’t actually make much difference at all and is largely a horn trumpeting issue - they posed the idea that a butcher decides to become an ethical vegan and therefore decides they can’t handle meat, but then you can’t sack them as they are following their ethical beliefs - he believed previous precedent on similar cases shows that you could sack them as they had effectively rendered themselves unable to perform the job im sure some lawyers will make some coin which is ultimately what these matters always descend into
  8. First two great, last one ruined the whole thing for me, absolute car crash - more plots that a caravan site and most of them just abandoned without resolution. Really disappointed as it was really good especially ep 2
  9. Was beating on Saturday and there’s an enormous Warren which has been empty this year, the little dogs flushed a good few rats out of there so there can’t be any rabbits left at all as I can’t see them sharing their home?
  10. Hi all ive been on the clays fortnightly for the last year and have got to a point where I’m sitting around the 70% mark - a vast improvement from my dead last in the north v south pigeon watch shoot a few years ago, side note but will that ever happen again? I still have the wooden spoon and would love to pass on to a new owner? anyway, I’d love to enter a comp just to see where I sit with other shooters but all the registered comps seem to be during the week by me? Does anyone have any thoughts on any weekend events I could find in the midlands, and also what I would need to do to enter? TMP
  11. So Santa must be an RFD then? Wish I’d known this earlier!
  12. Yes indeed, that was where I had my first ever lesson! It’s a nice little shoot but I find some of the gun handling a little ‘loose’ for my liking - got swept with a loaded semi once and saw some guys with an old side by side shooting from the hip! Horses for courses and all that but it only takes one mistake and a serious accident is inevitable
  13. I agree, people saying it’s because it’s cheaper to get them made abroad - yes if you’re not paying your labour force!
  14. I did Millride in the summer and wasn’t that impressed, it’s too many stands in too small a space for me - lots of clays crossing all over the place and hard to keep track of your targets, we definitely poached a few off others by mistake and definitely had some of ours shot by someone else might well try Doveridge over Christmas then, like going to different grounds to keep it interesting
