  1. Americans get all the good kit!

    That could certainly empty one's cartridge store pretty quick ๐Ÿ˜
  2. The Tunnel

    It's not real!๐Ÿ˜ Just semi brain out entertainment. Life's stressful enough. Personally I need some escapism. Prefer to be out shooting though of course.
  3. Pidge Deeks

    I had some FUDS, somehow managed to loose them; bet Mr Fox had a strange look when he came across them ๐Ÿ˜ I use shells then add shot birds. Looking for advice on the best easy carry, bob in the wind type floater though....any suggestions and tips guys? Cheers
  4. Holidays recommendations

    Did Santorini, was beautiful. Turkey has a lot going for it.
  5. The Tunnel

    Also, going off at a slight tangent, anyone started on this new series Dark Sun? Seems quite good so far. Threw up a question for me and the missus; what what you do if we knew for certain there was only 5 years left before earth's extinction? Could we go and visit all those bucket list sites, or would there be no planes, no fuel, no food etc because nobody would bother to work anymore? Would the world fall into anarchy? Keep plenty of ammo stored guys๐Ÿ˜
  6. Plastic

    All threads so wise here. A lot of places sell loose mushrooms for instance and paper bags to put them in, why when buying other loose veg, do they supply plastic bags? Surely carrots, broccoli, sprouts, spuds etc don't mind going in paper? They want us to cut down the plastic and loose veg is one small way to do your bit; give us paper bags. As mentioned, it's us that are told to "do our bit" but the big coffee chains and the like, who add greatly to the government coffers carry on with the same old planet distroying money making game. If we want a better place for our future generations, don't give us laws, make the company's change and if it takes 1/2 an hour longer to do your shopping, is this such a big deal, the world is too damn fast anyway. As for nuclear bombs testing..... well I've no idea how this could be stopped. Maybe that nice Mr Trump fellow has an idea๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜™
  7. The Tunnel

    Not heard of Broen but will look it and Spiral up. Can't see any more Tunnel being made, never be the same without Elise, what a character, so well played/acted.
  8. Crows

    Maybe, but I know I have itchy trigger finger
  9. Crows

    So devoid of birds on my perms, I'm almost tempted to shoot my decoys ๐Ÿ˜€ Good report for an excellent few hours crow busting by the sound of it.
  10. The Tunnel

    So has anyone been watching The Tunnel series on Sky Atlantic? English and French detectives; querky mix of characters that each have issues and come across some challenges with the people who cross their paths, be it criminal or otherwise. I won't do any spoilers, but it's well worth a look and this final series was a real roller coaster of emotions. Bit different from your average cops and robbers.
  11. Still on berries.

    The odd few in ivy covered trees and one field of rape with 50 or so ( not my perm) other than that, nadda
  12. Didn't expect that...

    Good one. Envious of your good fortune. How many cartridges will you carry next time?๐Ÿ˜€
  13. Holidays recommendations

    Camargue at the bottom of France. Walled medeaval city, horses, flamingos, salt lakes, beaches, bull running, superb food of course. Had my 60th there, did a safari to see the bird life in a very deserted reserve. You can fly to within 1/2 hour. Aigue Morte. Look it up, but don't tell everyone. Spain and Portugal are too English.
  14. magnetic stick on high ribs

    As per figgys idea, I've added a piece of square file as a short rib and raised the comb, the gun now shoots where I point it๐Ÿ˜€
  15. Moderated shotguns

    I always found my Investerarm shot low, but with some valuable info from other PW members, I've just added a short rib (an old square file and silicone sealant) plus some pieces of silicon hose under the neoprene butt cover, creating a raised comb. It's not the prettiest modification, but has lifted the poi to where I need it. Hope this helps anyone else suffering with low shot misses.
