  4. My first gun was given to me in 1960 when i was 14 by an uncle it was a s/s 12 with a cracked choke barrel half way down you could see daylight through it i dont recall a name only a silver badge on the stock i think it may have been damascus barrel after a years use my father took it to birmingham and go new barrels made.
  5. Nice one pc confidence to go out seems to be growing all around i went thursday it felt great to be out again.some people i know who were shooting within days of the ban cashed in and got onto some of my perms while i was being cautious.

    should have gone on this 4 weeks ago but didnt want to risk it unfortunatly this was a new perm for me and felt like i was letting him down i only shot 9 and my mate on another field had 13. It was obvious they had finished with it there was a persistent gang of 20 with a couple of ferals in with them that would completely ignore deeks (plastics) and drop anywhere then within 30mins another 100 would join them in ones and twos i had to walk out and put them up 5 times during the afternoon there was 3 silver and red big rotating thingys a kite and a gas gun on this 30 acre field at one point they were 20yds from the gas gun when it went off they rose and dropped down again within 40yds and the second bang within seconds never lifted them at all. The farmer phoned me to say some other guys might show up he gave perm to because we hadnt been he said they had been going for 4 weeks and had some good days. It dont pay to be cautious.
  7. can i use a rotary and decoys on a field of soya that pigeons are plundering when shooting them
  8. It seems reading this that its ok to shoot pigeons if they are damaging a crop and you have tried scaring them off to no avail.is it against the law to bring the deterents in while shooting and can you use a rotary and decoys to guide them to your part of the field. It seems to me that some people think its ok and others are still holding back.
  9. i have a field of soya with hundreds of pigeons going to it the farmer has a gas gun and a scarecrow on it and the farm manager goes regularly to scare them off. Can i shoot it without an individual licence. Is gl31 sufficient. Should i phone police before shooting. I also have a large osr field that is getting a lot of attention from pigeons.
  10. while out game shooting this past season i found i kept getting tears and blurred vision in my right master eye also my left but not as much it seemed to be caused by wind getting behind my glasses. Has anybody got any pratical remedies for this. The glasses i wear are largeish a bit like snooker players
  11. What about vinnie jones he likes his shooting he must know plenty of celebs who might help.
  12. Beautiful moth i found one in caterpillar stage last year very odd looking withits elephant snout
  13. like a lot of guys on here when I go out shooting I rarely know where I am going to end up and on what crop I drive 30 or40 miles looking for pigeons on crops on farms I have permission on if I find any I stop and set up the farmers expect that of me. I dont have computer fascillities so would need to ask someone else to do it for me will the license cover what I do if I apply.

    Little beauty

    I have some delightful newts too some pregnant i cant wait I have seen crows at the waters edge fishing for them
  15. I think that by the time this gets sorted you all will be so gratefull to be able to go out with your gun on a saturday and shoot a few pigeons you will pay NE what ever they ask for its all about money they have already said they are under funded and under staffed.it looks to me like a kick in the teeth for the working man pigeon shooting is usually free or at least affordable.
