  1. Bepanthen cream is the stuff to stick on it afterwards. It will stop it scabbing and keep it clean and help it to heal. I have a full sleeve and was good on that. Got my first tattoo at 19, my most recent one at 52. Will get another when I see something I like.
  2. Agreed, I also have a new hushpower 410 - I won't be putting any of these through it.
  3. Thanks guys, I really like this old .410 - didn't need it to be knackered.
  4. Yes. It says Magnum on the side and when I bought it around 8 years ago, it said on the description of the gun 3" chamber.
  5. Shot my .410 today for first time in ages. Cartridge came out like this?
  6. You're not coming down south anytime soon??
  7. I use .410 with mod. Very quiet. If you are local to me I will come and do it for you. Dm in West Sussex.
  8. I was once asked to dispatch a sick chicken because the owners didn't have the heart. I shot it with my 410 shotgun, it was really flat afterwards, mind you I was only six inches away.
  9. If they dont sell let me know.
  10. Even some members on here don't believe it is legal to kill animals!!!
  11. I think they wrote the provision within the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981 for grey squirrels as they are a non-native invasive invasive species. Obviously foxes aren't. But the Abandonment of Animals Act 1960 was repealed with the Animal Welfare Act 2006. The wording of the old act did encompass abandonment causing unnecessary suffering, and I believe the new act seeks to include that provision. However it is arguable and doesn't state it specifically, and I respect your position.
  12. My take is that relocation causes unnecessary suffering! Ergo, illegal...
  13. The "cruelty to animals" legislation you must be referring to is the Wild Mammals Protection Act 1996. The act is quite clear in the actions it forbids in terms of dispatching an animal and if you take the time to read it, it's far from "vague" or "a minefield". The person who was prosecuted for the squirrel was not prosecuted for killing the squirrel but for treating inhumanely and causing unnecessary suffering. Vince, you obviously don't really know what you're talking about in this area. Notwithstanding that, people who don't hold the relevant SGC or FAC are probably relocating fo
  14. Its perfectly legal to shoot a fox. With an appropriate firearm. Vince, go home.
  15. Utter nonsense. Perfectly legal to shoot a fox.
  16. Foxes don't need to be a threat to livestock. I shoot lots of cage trapped foxes in urban areas. Why? Because they are a pest!
  17. I have the carbine in green. An absolutely wonderful gun. Accurate and beautifully made.
  18. I went in an air rifle safety course in Bisley last year. All guns were tested, one belonging to an ex-copper was the only one over, about 14.5lbs... He was referred to as Shawshank thereafter.
  19. Thanks. Says you can only get it off with a knife? That looks the job, thanks.

    I need some tape (or something similar) to put around the top of the barrel on my Baikal .410 Hushpower so that when I poke it through the bars of my cage trap it doesn't get all scratched up. Anyone know anything that won't damage the end of it when I take the tape off? Thanks.
