  1. I was proud of my cocker retriving geese from water.... should show him this picture! Thst's brilliant, thanks for posting!
  2. Here's a link to a 28g for sale in Italy, looks the same to me https://images.app.goo.gl/MmpAgRjbbxA2XuE68
  3. I think it could be a "Contento" (from the name of the italian gunmaker) model Sanremo. Boheler should be the steel (good one) used for the barrel. Hope it helps. Cheers
  4. For sale 4 Italian shirts Belmonte (bought in Italy and shipped here as present). They're 39 (neck 15 & 1/2) but a bit on the small side for the size (possibly slim fit). New with tags. 28£ each + pp or 110£ for all (delivered to your door).

    BREXIT

    I'm really concerned about any outcome that will stop theese trades. My understanding is those are a vital part for London and Uk economy. Possibly I missed something but apparently no one (for sure ALL the politicians) is too keen in explaining such consequences?

    BREXIT

    (Possibly stupid) question regarding brexit and the deal: what's going to happen from the 31st (or after any implementation period) to the financial service trades between uk an eu? My understanding is they won't be allowed any longer?
  7. Out for some rough shooting with the dog this morning. Saw 7 missed 3.... Great day anyway and the dog worked well!
  8. If your looking for a 3 1/2" maxus, I have one in Duck Blind camo, original case, papers and all chokes & spacers if you're interested.

    Hardly used.

    1. Really nice! Eden?? Planning to have a go there this week! Cheers
    2. Hope we will! Sounds good to me! Thanks for organising. 👍 Leo
    3. Sounds great! Apparently there should be a nice windy spell mid-week 👍 Good luck!
    4. This one is great... I find hard to belive someone is able to consistently kill pheasants at 80 yrds (even IF GD pigeon was at 85 yrds, he's probably THE BEST gun in the world) but it is nothing compared to be able to ping a bird at 99 (!) yrds with a range finder. I'm from overseas and driven game is not my thing. I prefer 1 hard-earned chance for a goose on the foreshore (35-40 yrds, not more) and send my dog for a retrive than 150 brace driven grouse day. That said I have the biggest respect for a 100s year old tradition but I think the birds deserve RESPECT. Isn't that the reason why you dress smart and follow an etiquette on driven days? Shooting 80-90 yards high birds hoping in 1 lucky pellet is the opposite of respect. When I want to test my skills, impress my friends and boost my ego, I go to the the clay ground. Real distances and no wounded birds.
    5. I immagine that for this extreme shoot the guns are in a valley and the pheasants flight between two high points, something like two hills, correct? If you mesure the "height" of the hill from the valley (is there a different way?) you are not mesuring the actual height but the distance between you and the high point of the hill. It is a distance because you're not able to take a perpendicular mesurment (there is a slope). If the slope of the hill is 50 degrees (very steep) and you're mesurment says 80 yrds, when the birds is perpendicular on your head it would be 62 yrds high (if my math is correct 🤔) I'm just trying to understand, really. Did I assumed something wrong?
