    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. What a horrible thing this new card is, I had to cut it out with scissors as it was delaminating trying to punch it out
  2. My job is always pretty stressful but during COVID it’s really gone up several degrees of stress, which has left me struggling to switch off or sleep and I have developed anxiety which has become a bit overwhelming. Reluctant to go to the GP for fear of impact on my tickets I’ve let it go on until this weekend when I was at a family barbecue and just couldn’t cope with the anxiety and had my wife take me home. Contacted the GP today and I’ve been put on anti anxiety meds, which are also anti depressants. Realising this will get to my FEO and I need to get ahead of it I contacted him and to my very happy surprise he has confirmed I did the right thing seeking help and that by notifying him straight away he’s happy there’s no reason to limit or remove my access to my guns. I know there’s probably people with different stories but if you are struggling with mental health and not getting help because of ticket worries you might be pleasantly surprised by the reaction of your FEO. I was certainly expecting to at least have to rehome my guns for a while but looks like I’ll be able to carry on shooting while I sort myself out. thanks West Mercia
  3. Definitely hawk moth, we get loads of the caterpillar in our garden but I’m yet to see the actual moth which is a shame as they’re gorgeous
  4. I'm not saying you're cursed Nath but in a shootout I'm definitely not standing near you!! Hope you get well soon
  5. Enjoyed reading that, nice to see some well reasoned and emotive arguments carrying the issue
  6. If it weren’t for the crocs on their feet that photo could have been fifty years old! Lovely images, well done
  7. It's such an emotive subject, so many factors at play with terminations including failures of sex education, failures with contraception etc. As much as there is the argument of protecting the rights of an unborn child, there's the counter argument that what quality of life can an unwanted child expect? It's still very contentious but there is evidence that Roe V Wade in the US was the main driving factor in the reducing crime rate, kids that would have been born into poverty or unwanted were terminated and therefore not born - these kids were likely to be the ones turning to crime and without their presence the crime rate dropped. I'm no expert but I don't believe many people are routinely using abortion as birth control, the few people I know that have had them have wrestled with the decision and have to live with the consequences of their actions the rest of their life.
  8. It will never come to anything, language and spelling do evolve but ever so slowly and over time, to say "we're all spelling it like this now" and get global consensus would involve multi party agreement on a level never previously seen in world history - we can't even get the USA to spell Aluminium properly and that's just one word
  9. I'm planning on going, sadly the wife wants to come too so I won't be getting away with a sneaky new gun purchase
  10. thanks all, I concur with your knowledge that the mystery is solved - annoyingly it means the wife was right as she thought it might be a Hellebore
  11. Evening all this has self seeded in my garden and has just started to flower, it’s a bit tatty thanks to the dogs but can anyone tell me what it is? Different angle
  12. Get one of those ex-mod Harley off roaders and so long as your gun is exactly the same shape as an SA80 they have a built in lock box!!
  13. Michael Caine missed out on picking up his Oscar because he was away filming this pile of proverbial. He has a legendary quote about it which is something like “I haven’t seen the film, but I have seen the house it paid for and it’s lovely”
