    Yes some still use pinfires for the odd day out providing that they can find a few pinfire cases .You will find that a lot of pinfire shotguns were converted to centre fire Feltwad

    If the gun is good condition be it flintlock , percussion, or breech loader there are still used by groups of muzzle loaders for both clays and game shooting ,which must be entered on a S. G. Certificate it is living the past. Feltwad

    Interesting video showing three nice guns especially the muzzle loaders pity the big 4 bore had not kept the original lock when converted to percussion . Ending the video with firing the muzzle loaders with a light load would have finished the video in style . Feltwad

    Crow shooting £65

    I have heard of this outcome many times , I have always said you can have the antis because you know how they stand but a shooter worse enemy is his fellow shooter . Feltwad

    I agree there are plenty that would pay Feltwad
  11. A licensing solution for antiques will mark the end of our gun heritage and the Victorian and Edwardian gun craftsmanship which was the best in the world , Are we blind and not seeing what has gone on before , lets take the provincial hammer gun with the security cabinet law when a cabinet cost more than what the gun was worth with the result that not hundreds but thousand ended in the Furness and with it died a large percentage of Damascus barrel some thing that will never be repeated To some antiques are just a load of scrap most shooting organisation would not care if they were disposed but it is a vital part of our gun heritage and once gone will never and I will say it again NEVER be replaced Feltwad
  12. The antique gun rifle and pistol with its long dead crafts of the gun maker is a vital part of our gun heritage not too dispose of has we feel we hold them in trust for those that come after Feltwad

    BASC membership hits 155,000

    The lead ban was enough for me I remember been at the Game Fair when the local Wildfowling Club was exhibiting in the BASC tent taking all the complaints from the wildfowlers while the BASC officials were round the other side of the tent taking it easy . this is one of their biggest let downs Feltwad
