    Tour de France 2018

    Just a thought? It looks pretty certain that Sky will be taken over, probably by Comcast. Will the new owner continue to sponsor cycling; especially a US company supporting what is almost the British national team in essence. This may be the last Tour De France for Sky.

    GMK Turnaround times

    Why did you not exercise your legal rights and ask for a refund or replacement? Having bought a gun to use it is not acceptable that you are left without the use of it for any length of time.

    Non affiliated club.

    Thanks for all the replies. Varied opinions as I expected but all valid. I decided today to go and have a look at the ground the club uses. No sooner had I arrived than an irate gentleman appeared asking what I intended to do about the lead shot landing in his garden every shoot!. I offered my sympathy and departed. Nice and local as the club is I am in the enviable position I can shoot weekdays for less money at a commercial ground without any concerns other than my own conduct.

    Agreed and I see no problem if each individual has insurance. Main concern for me is uninsured shooters with no certificate. Get someone off work after being hit by a piece of clay and they'll soon start looking for someone to claim off for loss of earnings.

    Quite agree Westley re the safety officer issue. My main concern would be that without club insurance cover, and no guarantee that individuals have cover, would members be jointly liable in the event of any accident. I understand game shoot syndicate members can be held jointly liable in the absence of cover.
  7. Someone suggested I join their local clay club. It appears to be very informal with no insurance cover, no qualified safety officer and despite no exemption certificate encourages non certificate novices to attend and shoot. Am I paranoid in thinking this is one to avoid?

    Car puncture repair kits?

    Repairing punctures without taking tyre off rim means you have no idea if any damage has been done to the inside of the tyre. If I'm going to be driving at motorway speeds I want confidence in my tyres.

    Opens as usual for me. I'm using Chrome browser on an Android tablet.
  10. Some of the comments made here on this, an open forun, makes great ammunition for the anti's.

    11-87 recoil pad

    Could your bruised shoulder be due to length of pull. 11/87 is probably shorter than Beretta.
  12. Enforcement difficulty does not seem to fit into the political brain. It might, however, affect folk shooting on permissions. Farmers might start asking to see it like they do shooting insurance to ensure they are not liable as the landowner.
  13. I saw in a newspaper today that the EC intends to proceed with legislation that all motor vehicles must have third party insurance cover when used on private property. If this goes through it will mean further costs for shoot vehicles. Also will insurers want proof basic maintenance and roadworthy before they provide cover.
  14. Whilst sympathetic to the OPs problem the General Licence seems clear that culling is a last resort after all non lethal deferent methods have failed. I am plagued by collared doves due to my neighbors proliferation of bird feeders. Their garden is running alive with rats living off the bird feed droppings. I contacted the local council with the result they have been threatened will prosecution over not controlling the rats. They don't know who complained and I'm not about to admit.
