  2. It was a pleasure to welcome you & Amy onto our team Mark & many thanks for the lift on the 3rd drive. We all had a great day & even though my severed Achilles Tendon kept me from shooting some of the Partridge that got past me I did get my fair share of the bag. Jonathan was great in loaning me the quad for the day to get about. All the best Chris
  3. I applied for bolt action .22-250 with moderator. Must say I was impressed with the Tikka I looked at. Chris
  4. Well the FAC finally arrived this morning Only took 4 months, pretty good for Thames Valley. :( So its time to spend some money Have been looking at .22-250 Tikka's & an RWS Titan so it's decision time. I've got a Kahles 3.5-10x50 scope on its way from the USA. Chris
  5. If anyone has a Deer-Quest CD for sale, original or copy I would be grateful. Regards Chris
  6. Bought mine from here. http://www.stadia-sports.co.uk/products/at...startingblocks/ Chris
  7. Have a Silver Pigeon III Sporter 30" but after a year I found I wasn't shooting clays so much so changed the white front sight for a brass bead then had the manual safety converted to auto safe more in keeping with a true game gun. It's a great gun & nevers gives any problems. A friend has the Silver Pigeon V & it's identical apart from the colour case hardening. You won't regret buying it. :blink: Chris
  8. Nice to see my old Webley & Scott being put to good use Sidney, keep up the good work. Chris
  9. My old bus a 1999 2.5 DSE Range Rover

  11. Webley & Scott 12g Wildfowler Semi Auto, 28†barrel plus a 4†screw in extension, 3 1/2†MaxiMag chamber, steel shot proofed, 2+1 capacity. Synthetic stock finished with Advantage Max-4 HD camouflage. Comes with five interchangeable chokes, ventilated rib & a Webley & Scott gun slip. Very good condition, only 6 months old. Need the space in my gun cabinet for imminent arrival of new rifle! £385 (new £499) Chris
  12. 12g Sussex Armoury Heritage Boxlock SBS bought I think around 1982. First target a tree branch! I remember I was so keen to let fly I had a go at a rotten branch on the way to the field were the wheat was being cut & first quarry of course, rabbits escaping from the combine. I still have the old girl & occasionally bring her out for a pigeon or two. Chris
  13. Hi all After getting a great deal on a Webley & Scott Wildfowler semi auto earlier this year I found it would occasionally hang up 2¾ (70mm) cartridges on ejection. Recently Webley & Scott have put a disclaimer on their website stating only 3†(76mm) or above cartridges should be used. I like the gun a lot so don’t really want to get rid so I’ve been looking around for 3†cartridges with lead shot in 5 or 6 shot sizes. I know I can get steel 3†in any amount of sizes which I do use occasionally for Duck but really want lead for the Pigeon. (don’t really trust steel) I’ve found RC50 in number 5's & Eley do an Alpahmax magnum in 4's but if anyone knows of another 3" cartridge with lead shot in number 5 or 6 sizes please let me know. Cheers Chris
