    Jack's game

    Just watched several episodes of "Jack's game on YouTube.Several things spring to mind.I do remember watching them on tv years ago when I was a youth. 1.Imagine something like that on normal TV now. 2.Life seemed much more simpler then. 3.Seems to be that country pursuits were more accepted as the norm. Maybe rose tinted glasses but it's how I remember growing up no one abusing people going about lawful activity. Anyone suggest any more YouTube stuff in a similar vein.

    Trip wire alarm

    There appears to be no way of securing any form of cartridge.The missing bits if there are any, would appear to sit on the shoulders but there is no sign of any fixings.In fact it looks like the hammer would cut something passing through the "v".A real mystery. And a great thread.

    What did your father in law use it for? It's lovely but unusual which makes it very interesting indeed.

    Future of shooting sports?

    I can see where you are coming from in many ways. I have been shooting for 40 yrs and have done pretty much the same as you.Got many people started off.My youngest son is now shooting with me and will be applying for his own cert soon.There seem to be many hurdles in our way.It is certainly is a lot more controlled and negative than when I started out.When we received the pistol ban.i had to give up target shooting and I gave up rifle shooting at the same time as the range closed. However it is big business in reality and does contribute to local economies so I think we will be ok.We all have to stick together though.
  15. Been to Tesco twice recently and they haven't had sporting gun on the shelf.Am I just unlucky or have they stopped stocking it.Anyone else experienced this or am I just unlucky.
