    I've been in the field for 25 years and I still sometimes can't sleep at night in excitement and anticipation of an upcoming day out. Always keen on a day out whether behind a gun or not.

  1. Thanks for the helpful advice all and noted, will try to do as little as possible, and noted re. no Connolly's 👍.
  2. Yeah, thanks ditchman, really chuffed to have it. I used to manage filling it up for him prior to shoot days 35years ago when I was a 10years old. My grandad passed away 6 years ago now and it's been politically difficult to get access to it until now, just gutted it's been left to get into this state. When I picked it up this morning larvae were rolling around in it eating the label and baize 😠😕. Anyway it's now in my hands, where he'd want it to be, and I'll be trying to get it in good enough shape to last a few more generations.
  3. Thanks Mr grumpy, will give them a call next week and see if they can help.
  4. Hi All, I have a badly moth ravaged cartridge magazine that I've inherited from my grandad but has been languishing in a very damp cellar for years and has it on its last legs. I'd like to attempt a bit of a home resto. Any advice appreciated but to start with does anyone have any idea of where I could source as similar as possible an original makers label? and any suggestion on appropriate baize? Thanks in advance.
  5. Thanks James, payment arrived ok, I will have it on the courier today so you should have it thursday , regards Alan Robinson

  6. would be video evidence of it though! I think I'm going to do exactly that @shalfordninja33 and will report back on findings 👍🏼.
  7. @WalkedUp Exactly right, it's an over vertical shot as I remember, with a hopeful pull of the trigger 🙄.
  8. @motty Ha, harsh but true on these shots. Perhaps should have included the hits for better context! Had gun fitting on a new gun and a lesson with it was great for a technique reminder and this you'd certainly not get from watching Shotkam vids. What i think Shotkam must be useful for is diagnosis of those that you weren't sure why you missed in the field and perhaps to identify any fault patterns. @WalkedUp 👍🏼
  9. @WalkedUp This is the last frame with visible pattern in it for that shot at 0:30, yes I'm underneath a little, but I have a feeling this frame still has the pellets a bit of a way before the bird, so I may be behind on this bird. I am using a 20b with either 28 or 24gm #6 (mixed cartridge bag🙄) and 1/4 and 1/2
  10. 👍🏼 Misses in front seem to be the easiest to see as the bird v obviously throws the anchor out. @Centrepin Perhaps there'll be some on ebay later on in the year when we've all become crack shots!
  11. ooohh, that first Pidg is a lovely bird and shot 👏🏻, smiled seeing that.
  12. Ha ha, ah yeah, the old Eley Uranium 28gm no.6's!!
  13. Aha @WalkedUp I see that nice youtube feature of ',' & '.' to go back and forth frame by frame, and I see the below from that first shot. Difficulty is you still don't know how far there is between the bird and the shot string. @Centrepin Zeroed as best I can, cheated a bit in that I lined it up with bead at about 15ds not 30, as I did it indoors. Think I'll take a trip to the pattern plate and align it there. It seems to be broadly ok, perhaps reticle a little high I wonder though. Here are some shots where I did connect. Lots of us seem to be buying these Shotkams, we should have tried for a bulk buy, bloody expensive these camera's really.
  14. Ha ha ha, thanks chaps. @prem1234 it's lots of fun watching the vids, you're gonna love it. Thanks for your analysis, I'll watch again with your conclusions overlaid. @WalkedUp was that frame taken from the YouTube vid i posted? Wow I couldn't see that and I've been trying to view frame by frame in VLC. @all - It's got to be a helpful tool really hasn't it, certainly a fun one. Then again all well and good analysing this from the comfort of home, but when snap shooting in a cramped hide or windy wood with limited vis and shot window putting the lessons from the analysis into action is a different thing. Better interpretation of a bird's flight path and incremental shooting improvements is what to hope for i guess. More to come from when I next get out....
  15. Oops, sorry all 🙄, vids now made public, should now be viewable.
