  1. The snow and frost we've had up in Northumberland this week should make for a good shoot day on Saturday.
  2. I haven't posted since I got my SGC in June and purchased my first gun. I went for a second hand Miroku 7000 in the end, decided it would hold it's value and it didn't have much of a cast for a righty (I'm left handed).

  7. Shotgun Certificate arrived today Only 7 days after my FEO visit. Excellent service and friendly FEO. Well done Northumbria Police!
  8. What are all your thoughts on this? He actually paid more to shoot this lion than my university tuition fees... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-33699346
  9. Yes tragic. I work in pipeline Integrity, Piper Alpha is often at the forefront of our mind.

  11. I just got my free insurance documents through the post. Excess for veterinary fees is £100 & 20% to cover up to £4000
  12. Maybe I could build in a cat flap... I want to keep my pup out of there for now anyway, hence the decking and modified trellis.
