  1. hello, i see Packham in the paper again today, blaming grouse moor shoots for the killing off the Harriers
  2. hello, looks good to me, i get the same distance with my hand held N/V spotter (Boblov type) but it is not as clear on the screen as this Pard and i need to use extra I/R with a T38 with AS pil, the screen type i bought recently is much better but only good for 150 yards, i am sure it will be a very popular night vision spotter with those who shoot at night
  3. hello, i am sure he only rents his farm.
  4. hello, i cannot see any stars, i do not think the Italian gun makers used stars, but i maybe wrong
  5. hello, well i checked the franchi falconet all over but could only see proof marks and serial numbers and the 18.5/6, the RFD i bought off must have measured the barrels as it stated 1/4 and 1/2 which barrels i have no idea, anyway it will be off to a new home soon,
  6. hello, thats a nice stick, i had my friend make me one some 30 years ago for my mum, it whistles to,
  7. hello, i will check mine out later, those numbers were on the barrel
  8. hello, my friend got a nice pump 12 g off Mick, fine condition as advertised , its like a Aladdins cave so my friend said
  9. hello, well you have made me think on that so much i just checked the franchi the top barrel is 18.5 choke the bottom is 18.6 choke, front trigger fires bottom barrel back trigger fires top barrel, before this i had a lamber multi SST and had choke on bottom, much before that was a Bruno O/U double trigger but rear could shoot both barrels, now theres a thought on what model that was, at the club a few were just getting Brownings and Miroku hello, anyway i will not be using the franchi as its going to a young man who just starting out, i will just have the Yildiz and continue with the chokes as i like to use,
  10. hello, no it is a double trigger model, fixed choke 1/4 1/2 ideal hide gun, i will have a look and see which barrel is choked 1/2 , but i am trying to get use to my new O/U Yildiz with single selective,
  11. hello, perhaps i should check my old franchi, anyway my new O/U i have the top open choke and bottom choked as i prefer that way
  12. hello, i am sure my dad joined after leaving school until demob when i was about 8 , he was stationed in Portsmouth, so many vessels he went on, i can remember the family parties we had on their arrival home, seems such a long time ago, cheers
  13. hello, if you look at a fixed choke O/U top barrel is the more open choke, well mine have always been like that and i prefer the bottom barrel to be the tighter choke, look at side by sides ? as to why they make fixed choke shotguns this way i think you need to ask gunman,
  14. hello, thats what my dad did on board ship to make extra money to buy more rum,!!!!!!!!!! oh from those sailors who did not drink,
