  1. Yep, got one of these. Good on sloping ground - maybe a bit on the heavy side, but I try to get as close as possible when dropping off the hide/decoys/gear. The swivel seat is very good if you want to shoot sitting
  2. It is Full Moon today, 20 Oct !
  3. Down here in the Fens almost all the many fields of maize are harvested for biofuel, before the cobs are ripe.
  4. Probably young birds - they often gather up and rush about. Were any of the 15 you shot young - no white collar ??
  5. For info, from Clay & Game website: Most non-toxic shot such as power shot, ITX and steel shot is governed by the steel shot size chart. Due to the manufacturing process and CIP/SAAMI regulations, steel shot is very precise in its sizing and must be within a ± 0.05mm tolerance. Shot Size Diameter in mm Diameter in Inches Pellets per oz. 8/9 2.29mm .09 7 2.54mm .10 422 6 2.79mm .11 315 5 3.05mm .12 243 4 3.25mm .13 192 3 3.56mm .14 158 2 3.81mm .15 125 1 4.06mm .16 103 B 4.32mm .17 87 BB 4.57mm .18 72 BBB 4.83mm .19 62 T 5.08mm .20 52
  6. BioAmmo is available in steel 3,4,5 from Just Cartridges. The 28/30 gm loads are LP steel, the 32gm load is HP.
  7. I believe he was the only passenger on the aircraft, unable to board any of his team, nor anyone else !!!!
  8. Started on laid barley patches round here. Heavy rain storms brought the barley down. Also pigeons picking up grit 2 weeks ago gave a good clue. Shot my first few yesterday.
  9. My Android updated 16 June, no such App installed !! Just found this on-line: Emergency Alerts 2 planned tests Tuesday 22 June and Tuesday 29 June About Emergency Alerts Emergency Alerts is a new service from the UK government.

The government does not need your phone number to send you an alert. How emergency alerts work Help us improve GOV.UK Give feedback about Emergency Alerts
  10. Agree with you on this - if police/military etc were to do this, they would be behind bars sharpish. I would expect that Cummings must have been cleared to a reasonable level in order to advise PM on strategies etc etc.
  11. Well done !! A great day with your Dad. Well shot both - I'm very envious as very few birds round my area(s) !!
  12. Don't forget to go up 2 shot sizes in steel. 7.5 may be ok for clays but I think you will need 5s + for pigeons You won't get enough hitting power from small steel.
  13. The "new" Airflo 40+ head and integrated shooting line is very good. I have fished with 2 of the 40+ predecessors, and this is the best. I use a full floater for use off the bank at Grafham and Rutland, and a suitable Polyleader, according how deep you want to fish. Using just an Inty poly and fluoro it gets pretty deep on a slow retrieve, ideal for dam work with buzzers, shrimp etc. Round the banks maybe a floating poly and favourite nylon is enough Tight lines
  14. Have you contacted the CPSA ? I'm sure they will advise you on who/where ??
  15. Please forgive me if I am wrong here, but IM is Improved Modified ?? So equivalent to 3/4 choke English
