  1. It was fuddster! Don’t tell me you were there?
  2. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity shoot clays with one last month, i shot well enough with it, it has a decent weight to it and recoil is none existent, the wood was nice and it felt solid however I wasn’t keen on the thickness of the neck and the palm swell felt odd, that said I’m used to to slim necked sxs i wouldn’t condemn it but I would say for £2300 there is a lot of choice out there, until someone wins a major competition with one then it will struggle with sales
  3. As title does anyone have a spare barrel for a browning b80 for sale?it was made my beretta so 300/301/302/303 fit as far as know, was thinking 28” but 26” would be fine, also not bothered if it’s multi choke or fixed thanks wilksy
  4. Crabapple whiskey! I haven’t tried it but I’ve got a glut of them and I’ve found a recipe for it so I’m going make some this weekend! 750g crabapples 70cl whisky 5 Tsbp sugar or honey 3 sliced fresh ginger (or any spice you fancy, cinnamon, vanilla pod, cloves, cardamon) 1ltr jar add the chopped washed apples sugar and whisky and shake well (I like to just put the sugar and fruit together for a day or two before I add booze as it makes it more syrupy) then treat as you would any other fruit ,shake/store in a dark place etc
  5. Yes one farmer I know gave up on rape two years ago due to beetle and he has a lot of pigeons, and my main permission hasn’t sown rape this year as you say due to conditions but it has been very lean for pigeons this past 18 months on his patch, so I’ll be looking for more permission once the pigeons hit the rape
  6. Thanks for all your responses folks, as Marsh Mans says could be a regional thing.
  7. I seem to think I read somewhere that teal are referred to as cock and hen as opposed to drake and duck, is this true? and if it is, is there any other duck breeds that are labeled as such?
  8. Great write up and pictures, looks a brilliant day I’d love to try my hand at that!
  9. My reckoning is if you spend that kind of money on a gun,you expect years of flawless performance, that said I wouldn’t want to put the gunsmiths out of trade, I would think servicing based on cartridges shot verses time owned
  10. Mad dogs and Gordon are out on the pigeons today! Just think how strong your wrist is! I rest my case! Monday we’re away, rape at Leven still not down!!!
  11. I’ll take these please Dave I’ll pm you
  12. You missed off the master of self deprecation also! Well shot you two! Nice to see you got a good day together, pigeons are hard to pin down north of the Humber at the mo, always good to dint the crow population and as for back advice I say take up ‘planking’ (google it) strengthens your core supports your spine great report and banter!
  13. Hiya fuddster, I was in york guns yesterday and they are stocking the Gamebore silver steel 32g 4’s bio wad £11 a box but they were currently out of stock!
  14. The odd field down round Beverley, started the rape at lec on tues but got rained off, small field of rape at beswick cut, nothing down on my patch and now not likely to be for a good week or more edit; and apparently they’re lifting peas at lelley, on bbc news!
