  1. So what do you do for work??
  2. I see what you're getting at, you'd prefer them to be a bit older before they were slaughtered. Well fair enough I don't think I've eaten suckling pig before so I'll see how we go. I'm going to remove the head and the lower extremities that we wouldn't be eating anyway in a bid to fit it in the oven. Having weighed it now, it actually comes in at 12 and a half kg so I'm thinking I'm going to need to cook it on a low temperature for around 10 hours, and then at the end see if I can get it nice and crispy on the outside. Lots of basting with I think my favourite which is soy sauce. 🐖🐖😝
  3. So you're saying that it should be spit roasted rather than cooked in the oven?
  4. Unfortunately I don't have the facility to make a fire pit. Likewise ordering something from eBay it's not going to get here in time for the weekend. I plan to put it on my BBQ with some foil underneath then just keep turning it over and over and over so that the gets evenly cooked. Thanks for the suggestions chaps.
  5. So I have bought me a suckling pig to cook at the weekend. It's a bit bigger than I anticipated and is coming in around 11 kilos and is too big for my oven. I don't have a rotisserie spit for my barbecue any tips on how I should try to cook it?
  6. Yes, they are a little bit snooty in there. To tell my story is a bit long so I'll try and condense it, basically I was in buying some shotgun cartridges and because of that the bloke had a look at my licence and my age. This was a few years ago and I was in my late 40s, and whilst I was there a cheap air gun took my fancy so I decided to buy that as well. The guy obviously looking at my age and making a judgement about me, and said that I shouldn't allow my grandchildren access to an airgun without supervision! I told him my oldest daughter was 13 so I was a bit away from having grandchildren. He went so red it was absolutely hilarious. I guess I'm not the typical Chichester Armoury punter, I'm from up north originally I've got a few tattoos and probably a little bit rough around the edges. But as there's no other gun shops in the local area I have been back there quite a few times lol.
  7. I have had a couple of funny experiences in there. One of the staff made a few assumptions about me because of my age and made himself look a tit.
  8. Joe Kenda (American Detective retired, has a show on TV) calls the .22 caliber exactly that, for that reason.
  9. He is doing it to cause a reaction. He'd love more abuse or dead birds on his gate, it gets him and his bull**** more publicity. Ignore the idiot.
  10. Thanks for the positive responses. 👌
  11. A recent thread about the use of pistols for the above got me thinking. I regulary cage trap and shoot foxes with my .410 - and do it humanely. But I have never had any formal training in humane dispatch - there is plenty online these days that one can read and educate oneself on shot placement etc, and although I have never done humane dispatch on deer or pigs for example, I think I would be able to do it properly and effectively. So, the question is, do I need any more training? I have had a SGC for many years, I do pest control for a living, am a member of BASIS, NPTA and have a long and tiring list of other qualifications in pest control. My SGC doesn't mention quarry or the like, so I am interested in opinions, especially the chaps who know a bit about deer.
  12. I put in about 8 applications for various sites where I was having to remove nests and eggs, they just sent me one for anywhere in England in the end.
