    Guidance required!

    Guidance required! So first off I’d like to say “wow” it’s so hard to get into shooting without a healthy budget or some acquaintances in the shooting world. But...I am slowly clawing my way into the sport with the help of you lot on forums and Facebook groups! What I’ve achieved so far, 4X4, check Small first aid kit, check Shooting business cards made up and being posted, check Permission sheets designed and printed off, check Poles, nets and decoys, check SGC and Shotgun, check FAC and Deer legal calibre rifle, check Lots of green clothing, flat cap, boots and some farmer type shirts, check BASC member for insurance, check Active member of a local 500yrd rifle club, check Paid stalks booked in for later on in the year with estate rifle, check Oh…looking at the list above, I realise I’m actually not doing too bad! Permissions to shoot on…….Ha Ha Comical! Join the British Deer society? Please advise! Some kind of health and safety training? Please advise! DSC1 Course, will be booking shortly with a local chap. When I’ve saved up some money, find a syndicate and shoot stuff! Later down the line, think about trying for my DSC2. Have I missed anything? Can you suggest anything I haven’t thought of? Thanks Scott.

    Painting scopes?

    I have acquired a scope that looks a little tired and could do with a freshen up. Not sure about full cammo, but if you paint it one colour it may look amature and **** any suggestions? Any pics of one you have painted? Thanks.

    I am expecting my FAC to land on the doorstep any day, so I have started looking around.I have a budget of about £1500 At first I was thinking about getting a Tikka T3 super varmint .308 (£1255) but that doesn't leave me much money for scope, Rings, gunslip etc.So to free up a extra few quid, I have been looking at the Browning x bolt stainless Stalker Fluted .308 (£850)Iv also been looking at the Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24x50 scope (£575)Any thoughts?

    Has law and order broken down in this country ?

    When social media kicked off, crime dropped massively. Now people are board with Facebook and the like and going back out causing trouble.

    I do wonder about my wife!

    So one of our girls has to go to school dressed as a Viking for a play she is doing. While im making dinner, she walks into the kitchen wearing a helmet that she had pulled out of the toy cupboard and said "will this be ok to wear for the play"? I said "I think that type of helmet was use by the Saxons but I'm sure no one will notice". My wife pipes up and says "it will be the same as Vikings, because they were from England". I said "what, the Viking didn't come from england" Looking confused, she then said "oh no that was the Romans, they were from England". I just shook my head! I do wonder sometimes.
