  1. I would like to think my mount is the best it’s ever going to be. If I think about how long in total I have spent in the last 12 months dry mounting on different objects around the house...even the fire alarm at the top of the stairs before I walk up to put the gun away. It’s just become second nature now, don’t even need to think about what I should be doing...and as you say it’s cost absolutely nothing
  2. Hi all, I don’t get out anywhere near enough clay shooting whether we are in a lockdown or not but even so, the gun is out of the cabinet most nights and I just spend 5 to 10 mins dry mounting it. Mounting it on stationary targets is one thing but wouldn’t it be better mounting on to a moving target. When looking into the Dryfire simulator I notice they do something called “Swing” which is based on the original idea of dry fire - a device to practise hold, target acquisition, gun mount, swing and follow through.it doesn’t give you any feedback and it presents the targets in the same way. At £250 it’s not cheap but is it seriously worth looking into?
  3. Yes maybe I am thinking too much, probably why I miss so much...need to learn to switch brain off. Game shooting is still all new to me
  4. What do you mean by “measurement or performance”
  5. the lyalvale 25g in 6 or 7 shot sound to be the ones then...so next would be what choke for your average walked up birds. I currently have 1/4 top and and 1/2 bottom
  6. I will buy a box of each and try them. The gun is as light as a Deaves compared to my beretta so imagine it’ll kick like a mule although I was going to get a slab of 28g No 8’s for some rounds of Skeet just to get use to the swing of the gun
  7. Is that the lyalvale 25g in 7 shot?...guessing 25g is fine for game unless they wouldn’t do them
  8. The regal was going to be my first choice although was reading that they are a very “punchy” cartridge
  9. Bought myself a nice little 20 bore yildiz for my second season of rough shooting. No long range birds but what cartridge do I go for....28g No 6 or 25g No 6 plus also what choke combination baring in mind I cant imagine the choke sizing will be as accurate as my Beretta
  10. Correct it has a wooden butt pad, No snagging on your jacket when it’s mounted
  11. It’s a beautiful gun. No cast on it must be the photo I took. Just a shame it doesn’t fit me right. Think I may look for a 20 bore 0/u instead but will make sure I handle it properly before buying it this time
  12. If it was just a laser cut plate you were after in the shape of the profile you could soon insert the image into autocad and then draw around the bits you wanted. Save the image as a DXF file...off to the laser cutters and job done....simples. You could then add as much detail as you wanted (within reason) ensuring you had continuity in the plate you were cutting. You don’t want to cut big bits out that made it fall to bits (if that makes sense)
  13. Random question...converted tractor unit with a diesel generator fixed to the chassis. Previously classed as “Engineering plant” to negate having to have it MOT tested and was previously able to drive on a car licence. Since the law has changed recently, from what I know this is now classed as a HGV and needs an annual Mot along with now having to be driven with a class 2 licence. It does not carry goods just purely a diesel generator which powers a welding rectifier. Can it still be declared as “Engineering plant” or does this no longer exist?
