  1. One thing to consider is local clean air zones (stealth congestion charges). I was thinking of a pick-up but of that age I would have to pay £10 per day on a euro 5 or less diesel if I drive in to the next county as Greater Manchester are being this in soon. I am sure more cities (and surrounding towns) will bring this in soon. Not good for me as local supermarket and motorway access that is the most convenient route as I live just over the county border.
  2. Fiocchi sell a 35g 70mm cartridges which I thing works as well as any 3” I have tried, but bit cheaper. Comes in 2s and 4s. 32g Gamebores are ok too.
  3. I do like my possum fur hat I bought on the Ray Mears website. Wear it for dog walking and for most things in the winter. It’s warm, light rain resistant but breaths (too well if it’s windy and cold). Might get another before anything comes in. Can’t see the difference between wool and leather. On my second now as my Labrador puppy at the time decided to make my original in to a scarf by chewing the top off. That is still used too.
  4. I was just browsing the bbc news pages and I came across this. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56495443 Bit odd from the bbc.
  5. For sale mec size master 10 bore Model sm82 i bought this with the intention of reloading by own but have not manage to get around to it or buy a 10 bore. £120 collection in Wigan
  6. I have had a fox bite my rotary wing duck decoy while on the marsh.
  7. My Winchester did eject Lyalvale express English Sporter. Not had a problem with others and Lyalvale game cartridges in 67mm. I’d try another box of cartridges first.
  8. Oregon powersharp chainsaw bar with sharpener attachment. 16” 56 link 0.05 gauge chainsaw bar. Bar can be used with any chain that fits but also can run the Oregon powersharp chain for easy sharpening. £18 each plus postage or collection from Wigan. https://www.amazon.co.uk/OREGON-542314-16-inch-Powersharp-Drive/dp/B0049D9RJY/ref=asc_df_B0049D9RJY/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=232020729251&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12460208628581101127&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1007230&hvtargid=pla-420702618399&psc=1&th=1&psc=1
  9. Fiocchi 35g are 70mm I have used the no2 quite a bit. they are supposed to be used in a steel proof gun, but that is your choice. I used them in a 3” chambered basque sxs and a 2 3/4” Winchester auto.
  10. I will confess I have put a metal snap cap in my Winchester semi auto and broke the extractor claw. I was seeing how to safely unload the gun as I wanted to familiarise myself before taking it out.
  11. My vet recommended not have my Labrador neutered for reasons highlighted above in the paper. She did recommend if I really wanted to is to trial the implant which I did. For the first 6 weeks I thought it did nothing but when it kicked in he is a lot calmer and no longer jumping on ever bitch he sees. Did make he’s balls smaller though. That was about 6 months ago so time will tell with him.
