  1. Because it was the first of its kind they still built what they knew which was timber bridges. All the members and joints are (or are very close to) what you would find on a bridge made of timber. Fascinating to see up close. I love a good bridge - St Johns bridge, Portland, OR is a cracker.
  2. She may have returned to the US under 'advice', not necessarily her choice. Could very well be that her lawyers looked at the case, decided that it all looked a bit dicey and she was likely to end up in court/the slammer which would be a bad look and told her that she should leave.....
  3. They like to think they do. How many times have you read on here alone of numerous issues at renewal with firearms added /missing/ incorrect numbers recorded? Not mention the guns that have 'disappeared' or just never recorded. Plus forces that have dissolved, merged and created in that time and of course dutifully copied all the information accross with 100% accuracy... I imagine a proper audit of the police records would be absolutely horrific. (both to undertake and the results of...)

    Terra Mystica - cracking game.
  5. +1 nothing sadder than a well made tool not being used.
  6. Is that down to the gun or down to how 'seriously' someone wielding a £300 Lanber is likely to take his clay shooting though?
  7. I shoot my SxS's predominantly in t-shirt and jeans. Ain't a bird thats complained yet.
  8. Shooting has a PR problem. It has no positive PR at all. This year I have been to both the Bath and West Show and the Mid Devon show. Given the clientele at both most likely largely pro shooting but a lot of Jo public to engage with and get a positive message out there. Guess how many shooting related stalls at each? Even clays? Yeah.wrong. BASC were at Bath and West I saw the devon wildfowlers at mid devon. Oh and the Devon gun dog club (cracking dogs there if any members are on here.) That's it. Not one gun shop (I admit it's the game fair this weekend, but there are tons of gun shops down here). Not one cartridge supplier No CPSA No clay clubs No field sports suppliers (other than clothing) Shooting has very little public face. No wonder people can blatantly lie about it with impunity.
  9. Coombe Farm is nearly there. Just lacks the pith helmets. 😁
  10. Well done you. I happened to be on some clays so was shooting at twice that rate. Thanks to all that had helpful suggestions... I will channel my inner Jackson and look at a glove for the rare time I may need it... 👍
  11. Well. Yes. 🤔 Not the question, but thanks. Just want to avoid some minor discomfort....
  12. Took the Tula out for the second time yesterday. Lovely and light. Smooth shooting, 28g 5's felt like 21g 7.5s from a 12 guage. Wonderfully balanced. Got many admiring comments with most mistaking it for an old English gun. Didn't shoot too badly with it either.  My only slight complaint is the choking of what is apparently full and extra extra extra full.... 😂 I have suspicion that the intention was that you have shot in the full barrel and slug in the xxx full. It's pretty much my go to gun now though. One question - I would really like a leather hand guard as my hand rests just at the end of the for end. Are there any that are less than £40? I kinda object to spending that much for what is basically a very small piece of shaped leather.
  13. I stick them in an rfd. For the sake of the £20 it cost me it was worth it. The last time installing the cabinet turned into a bit of a nightmare with my drill breaking, walls being very unflat and fixings breaking. What with all the running around required and various trips to DIY stores what should have been a 20minute job was about 4.5 hours. Had that been on moving day with needing to get guns secured it would have been waay more stressful. If you're buying all sorts can go wrong at the last minute, not that they happen often, but it does happen Long story short. Moving house can be unpredictable. Cover yourself.
