  1. Going back a couple of years we looked after a Bengal cat for the wife's brother while he went travelling. We were told he was strictly a house cat and he didn't likeit outside and that he shouldn't be let out. About a month in to us having him I could see he wasn't happy in the house so I let him out. He was like a different cat. He would go off for the day and come back inthe evenings with mice, rabbits, even magpies! The wife's brother went mad when he heard he was outside ? Since then he has gone back to his owner and is stuck inside again. I think it's very very wrong to keep a cat indoors.
  2. R and B sporting near in Ross on Wye, not far from Hereford. Well worth a look.
  3. When I got my FAC I managed to get a mint CZ 452 .17HMR and a BRNO Mod2 22lr for about the same as you have to spend. Both really good rifles and didn't break the bank.
  4. Hi all, I'm just after a bit of help really. Basically I've been looking at getting a night vision set up for my rifles for a while now. I am looking at an add on set up so I can swap it between the 2 guns accordingly. I've looked at various different ones but the 1 I keep coming back to is the Nitesite Wolf. It seems a decent set up and would suit what I'd use it for. The rifles it would go on are a 22lr and 17hmr so a range of 200m would be plenty.  Is there any other NV add ons out there for a similar price that I should be looking at? What are people's thoughts on the wolf? Thanks in advance, Dan.
  5. All the dealings I've had with them recently have been positive. Definitely some improvements been made.
  6. I'm 32 with a 2 year old and a 5 year old. Every day that goes by it gets slightly easier and more and more enjoyable. They both love shooting and ferreting, watch very little tv and love being outside. I reckon we are doing ok

    Rusty knife

    It's nasty stuff. N+S so I think the sulphur is to blame.ushally use my old knife but forgot this time. Always take wedding ring off too for the same reason.

    Rusty knife

    I was using my knife to cut fertilizer bags open the last couple of days and noticed tonight the blade has started to rust. It's an opinel knife with the carbone blade. I know they're only fair cheap but it's only a few months old. What would be the best way of cleaning it up?
  9. Had 2 rabbits, 4 pigeons and a crow out of the window in the last few days with the HMR. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones as I live/work on a 700 acre arable farm and have sole permission for vermin control.
  10. I love my sxs, an old AYA Yeoman bought for £75. It a a bit rough around the edges but I'm as good with it as I would be with a gun worth thousands.

    Grandad used to breed canaries, since he died my nan has been keeping them going. All colour fed, they look stunning.
  12. Well I took her to the vets tonight and it's basically a wart. A soft fleshy mass he said. Nothing at all to worry about and if I wanted it off I could but if not it'll cause no bother. Thank goodness for that.
  13. Booked in tomorrow evening, hopefully it's nothing sinister.
  14. Just noticed a soft, pink lump on my cockers elbow. It's about the size of a large tick. It's not causing her any pain and she'll let you touch it without moving. Shesjust turned 7 years old and has never ever had anything wrong with her before. Amy ideas would be great, Thanks, Dan.
  15. Love still game. Best tbing on tv
  16. I've got an Orange five with a similar spec. Absolutely awesome bike and a very reasonable price
  17. Her and Ken Bruce work well together. Wish Chris Evans and Jeremy Wine would take a leaf out of her book and naff off.
  18. Wish I'd read this sooner. Ordered a set of scope mounts off them on Tuesday morning, £6 postage!! At that price I'd expect them to have arrived before I'd got off the phone but they still haven't arrived 2 days later. Probably won't be the right ones when they do finally turn up
  19. Love watching his videos, makes my shooting look a bit naff in comparison
  20. We live on the Hereford/Gloucester border and our lads primary school is shut tomorrow yet the nursery part us still open. We have had a bit of snow but nothing much, I think it's down to how cold it is that they are shut more than the snow. 3 day weekend with the rugrats stuck in the house..... great
  21. That's a lovely rifle, I have the same 1 but I wish it was the left handed version. If I didn't already have mine I'd bite your hand off!
  22. What more could you wish for? Sounds like you've got a little cracker there. My 5 year old is starting to show an interest in all things outdoors and it fills me with hope that I'll have a shooting partner in a couple of years.
  23. Stupid way of doing photos on here it wouldn't work.
  24. Managed to grab an hours ferreting with my eldest last weekend, he's never happier than when he's out and about either with his air rifle or his ferrets. <a href="https://ibb.co/bZoOHc"><img src="https://preview.ibb.co/ethiHc/20170122_121551_1.jpg" alt="20170122_121551_1" border="0"></a>
  25. Same here. I always use more than I need too
