  1. Where abouts a do you live? I am left handed and found a good selection at my local gun shop 👍 I would recommend going to your local firearms dealer in the first instance!
  2. Morning all I am due to pick up a new shotgun this evening but hoped for some advice. Table 2 on my shotgun certificate has no free spaces left on it for the purchase to be logged against. Does anyone know want I need to do in this instance? Many thanks!
  3. I have been told you can just clear off eggs from a shot bird and they are still good to eat. Is that the case or should they be thrown away?
  4. Cheers. What happens when they dry out? Apologies, this is the result of having Sainsbury’s on your doorstep and not sourcing your own food lol. I’m clueless but keen to learn
  5. Might it be better if I share a photo?
  6. Huh? Not sure I follow. I’m not bothered but I just saw a few posts about removing the wounds/ bruised parts so just wondering if there is a reason for it or the whole thing is good to eat?
  7. Hi all looking for a quick bit of advice. I’m new to this whole field to fork thing. I have been told that you shouldn’t eat damaged/bruised meat and to cut away any bits you can. I shot a couple of pigeons yesterday but hit them square on so the breasts have multiple shot wounds. If I were to remove the bruised parts there would be nothing left. Can anyone tell me whether it’s ok to eat or what I should do? thanks in advance!

    Gun cabinet

    Hi all looking for a 3 or 5 gun cabinet if anyone is wanting rid of one? Ideally within 1 hour or so from York/ Wetherby area. Thanks Elliot
  10. Thanks and good point! I do remember reading that in the book also!
  11. I have been reading Wil Garfits book on pigeon shooting where he recommends the optimal pigeon load to be 28gram 7.5 shot. But everyone I speak with seems to go for 30gram 6 shot. Has anyone tried both and can give me a bit of personal advice on which they prefer? The figures I read were: 28g, 7.5 shot (385 pellets @ 2.3mm) 30g, 6 shot (287 pellets @ 2.6mm) Wills argument was that you see a 25% reduction in pellet count going from the 28 gram to the 30 gram load which is more of a consideration than the relatively small change in shot size of 0.3mm thoughts?
  12. Nice read! and a great memory you will have for a long time to come!!
  13. Yeah he sent me through some details, he was really helpful and it looks like a great set up! Keen to find some permissions locally without having to fork out £170 odd quid though. Got a wedding to pay for and my other half might kill me haha but after the wedding I will probably join NPPC. I’m just staggered that in an area like Tad I can’t pick something up through word of mouth etc. But who knows with a bit of persistence.. good to know that NPPC has shooting around my area though thanks! 👍
  14. Excellent, thanks! What time is it open from on a Saturday?
  15. I haven’t made it to rufforth yet! Despite it being the closest ground to me!!! I am normally at Hazel Bank in Knaresborough. When is Ruffoth open? I have rung them a few times but the guy I spoke to made it sound like hard work and didn’t seem interested so never bothered going lol have heard good things though!
