  1. Hi Discobob She occasionally shoots at the club that we both visit at Trelogan, you probably don’t recognise her as nor did I at first.
  2. Hi any cscope will be suffice, built for British soils and have been making detectors for years. I would recommend a 3mx about £150 second hand on eBay, and you would be able to sell it on at only a slight loss if they get bored digging tin foil, aluminium pull tabs and tin cans. To start with you will dig a lot of rubbish until you get familiar with the various signals. YouTube have some great videos for beach and inland detecting. you will hear stories of £20 detectors finding a gold coin in just 4 inches of soil but this happens very rarely, believe me I have be
  3. Great story Oneshot and very well presented😂😂😂😂😂
  4. I presume he is still holding the dummy😂😂
  5. Thanks for getting back to me Westward. it appears that there was an issue as Salopian has mentioned but it does not seem to be due to the 725 being partly inertia. I do recall someone mentioning about 18 months ago about 725 trigger problems and I think he mentioned inertia also, but if I can release both firing pins with two consecutive pulls on the trigger with no cartridges in the barrels then the 725 is definitely mechanical.
  6. Thanks for the update Salopian, so as I thought absolutely nothing to do with inertia because the 725 is fully mechanical.
  7. Hi, i have a 725 Prosport, which has the same mechanism as all 725s, I can pull the trigger on both barrels using snap caps. So would you please explain what you mean by the trigger system needing some recoil for the inertia system. I also had a problem with with the trigger not releasing the pin for the second barrel, by the way I shoot bottom barrel first. The problem started in the first winter of owning the gun which I had purchased new. I stopped wearing gloves especially baggy fingered gloves and the issue ceased straight away. In my case like 95% of other cases the cause was i
  8. Same as Perazzishot, too light and slim for me, so part exd for a Prosport. But the finish and engineering was lovely including the wood. May try the F3 next, but getting on with the Prosport at the moment.
  9. Mighty Ruler I would agree with Fisheruk, call the utilities out, especially from a heath and safety side, you have all sorts of risks that you need to cater and consider for before you carry out any work on sewers ie, falling down the manhole, someone else falling down an unguarded manhole, methane and all sorts of gases and diseases. call them out, could be cheaper in the long run.
  10. The camera would solve the problem of what’s going if there is something there to see. If you have now cleared the the blockage I would now wait until you have a blockage again and then open the lid on the manhole next to the road and ask your neighbour to flush their toilet if the flush runs through this manhole then it obviously means the shared part of the drain is fine, if it doesn’t then you need to rod from your nearest manhole to the furthest manhole at the same time someone needs to look down the furthest manhole to see what is being pushed through ie broken bits of drain, wet wipes et
  11. When you have a blockage can you recall if the manhole nearest the road is still flowing, if it is still flowing from your neighbours toilets etc then the blockage must be on your line, if this manhole is not flowing then either you or your neighbour is causing the blockage, but the good news would be it’s a shared drain.
  12. it is hard to visualise without seeing your drainage on plan, if the blockage is down stream then it may not be your neighbour, it could be backing up further down from another neighbours shared drain run???
  13. Firstly you need to be sure that the drains are definitely shared drains, I understand in your comments above that the drains join on your property but what isn’t clear is are you upstream or downstream of the joining connection. If next doors drainage flows through your plot and then onto the main sewer then you have a shared drain situation. But if your drainage flows downhill through your neighbours plot and you have no other property adjacent yours flowing through your drains then you have a private drain situation and the responsibility is yours. If you have a private drain, I
