    my mom made bread for the first time with grandmothers ingredients we couldn't eat it and lost the will to live as well even using tools so chucked it out the crows ate it but couldn't fly after j dog is an equal opportunity's employer 👍 never ever take your eyes off the blade girl or claret will be spilt I cant say to you don't put your fingers where you wouldn't put your pecker 🤣 other one (children and fools don't play with edged tools ) on a more serious note I hope j dog is on the mend and doing well and wanting more food and getting his apatite back
  4. have found whirly gigs can put them off when they first came out many years back they worked brilliant I now go back to old fashioned fieldcraft ( less is more ) in the flight line nothing needed / or a single roosting pigeon / 6 decoys in the field far enough out so they fly between the wood and decoys as they will not be interested but go for a look and veer off decoys may give you a chance

  6. enjoyed the show over many years a disappointment however one life saved 👍
  7. stop one shot type at a time no more shooting stop reared birds one at a time same result you only have to look to Holland non toxic and native wild birds only no reared at all or migrating birds of any kind to be shot as informed by a Dutch guy shooting at Gams estate 15 years ago one chip at a time the oak tree falls
  8. used to shoot victory changer 5s back in the day on pigeon mid seventy's onwards ratios were better than shooting 7.5s pigeons are tough so still shoot 5s as grandad taught me don't wound kill clean
  9. you and me will get on fine kill it not wound it don't matter what jacket it wears I see chips and peas / gravy around a pink or mallard we must have a breakfast at the Anglia motel on the A17 sometime a really decent fry-up breakfast and ill pay my treat
  10. steel as lead has a sweet spot to use an annularly a carburettor too lean or too rich **** just right spot on steel the same lead the same however shop bought you cant choose home load you can develop any load to suit your needs fast or slow heavy or light your choice Sami data is the way forward
  11. steel loaded properly will kill better than lead at distance as tighter pattern however off the shelf cip steel lacking reload now to develop a load for the coming season you wont be disappointed plenty of guys on here will give you data
  12. over many years many hours at a duck pond and many many hours on the fore shore many hours shooting pigeons through the summer developing loads inc chatting to mates wildfowlers working efficient loads researching loads to Sami regs and continental data was discussed with off the shelf loads on the fore shore well within range on wigeon with my son and I shooting together picked up two out of twelve down still alive others not found frustrated to hell ( we both cant be wrong) a good dog who worked hard if shooting lead I can say dead next visit home loaded steel eleven for thirteen shots all within range and 25 yrs on still reloading and haven't bought a lead or steel cartridge to date and couldn't tell you the cost of a of a slab of clay busting shells if you shoot steel i can send you some for the season you can make your own mind up
  13. two pellets in the head / neck beats ten in the backside don't matter what shot type or cost however if you home load steel you can tailor your load to what works for you its all about the pattern and hitting power every one has their opinion what works for them does not work for others some if it kicks like a mule it must be good lead or steel some spray and pray hope something falls our others one shot one kill not every one kills with lead every time and blame steel as no good initial setup a reloading press and scales for as cheap as you can find shot powder and wads the same if you kill consistently with a home load it will be worth it and be cheaper than shop bought loads less cripples and clean kills steel loaded right kills as all lead and non toxic if loaded right off the shelf steel found to be lacking others will disagree I load to kill consistently with all shot types the rest is down to me
  14. what he said or re fit the offcut with xtra long screws / fit a baculite or wood extension or slip on leather extension boot doesn't have to look pretty however must work
  15. have a look for a trap stock on sales sites or phone a few gunsmiths Wisemans at Cannock Elderkins at Spalding the gun trade Birmingham or similar they will have something as some change the woodwork as not matching (too light straight grained bland ) will be cheaper than alterations a few 10p calls and a bit of time cane save you hundreds
