    Will have a look and PM if I have
  2. Down to the executors to decide what happens to them according to the will and law. Ask the police if they are happy to transfer to an RFD pending the outcome of this process. Not sure you can get involved in what is effectively a civil matter between the executors and potential beneficiaries.
  3. You have not said how pronounced the limp is or if the dog is in obvious discomfort. If it in discomfort as opposed to a bit of a limp it is a very different matter. My older dogs go onto glucosamine 300 mil from Holland and Barrett when they start to struggle and it does make a difference. Not sure if it would work in your case.
  4. Yes used to do it with the air rifle but don’t have the stomach for it any longer and don’t live in an area where Rooks are mentioned as a problem or would be out on the fields after them.
  5. Too far but will be at the Scottish Game Fair at Scone. Smaller but a very much better atmosphere in my view.
  6. Love your pictures and this is fab
  7. Never see divers with one and I was one of them!
  8. It was chickens that have me the pox.
  9. That’s a work of art in itself ….well done
  10. Swapped my front camera from pickup on sale to van. The first was wired through the lighter output but I had the van hard wired by Halfords. Now I know what some of you think of them but they did a great job for fifty quid and that included the price of the kit.
  11. For me it depends on the charity. I support cancer charities, particularly MacMillan, and RNLI. Was talking to MacMillan at the show and they have lost £100 plus million due to covid. The wife has missed holding her last few coffee mornings where she usually gets over three hundred pounds plus so I can see where the figure comes from. You can only support so many and for me it stays at home sorry and all that.
  12. Surely it depends on the proof and the cartridge. If you are using a cartridge that is clearly marked as suitable for standard proof guns and your chokes are at, or less than, the maximum recommended there is no excuse for insurers to avoid paying out. So, if I am using Eley eco steel in a standard proof gun, as I do, I expect to be covered and happy to see them in court if they decline.
  13. Was the same with my oldest lab in January, just lying out in the cold run barking to himself so let him go as there were other things to that pointed to the fact he was not enjoying life.
  14. Very nice in all respects! Well done.
  15. To say that there is supposedly no demand for English guns these sell like hot cakes. Round Actions are though few in number and demand seems to be incessant. He certainly shifts some guns. He told me he had several enquiries after I had bought mine and also sold two others on my behalf without difficulty. .
  16. Yep saw that! Non ejector if I recall
  17. Graham is the go to man but 16 bore might be a big ask. I bought mine off Graham so worth a chat with him.
  18. It’s how it was done in Scotland two years ago when I renewed. Spoke to them and it went direct to HQ rather than the local station. Nothing sinister in it.
  19. I have made exactly that point about muzzle loaders to Conor!

    HW 57

    Agreed I don’t go over 200 with the pump

    HW 57

    I think it is a cracking gun and I have the magazine option. Only reason I am considering a change is I live in a rural area and tank refills and retests are difficult. When I first bought it I was diving so had everything at my fingertips and a dive centre a few miles away..
  22. This train has been coming down the EU track for sometime regrettably!

    HW 57

    I have an S200 and pump it with a bog standard pump without much trouble up to 200. Must admit am toying with selling and buying an HW95 springer having looked at them at the Northern Shooting Show.
  24. Been doing this for years. A lot are just suffering from neglect and a little TLC, water and warmth brings them back to life. Others are perennials that have just gone over their flowering season. Picked up fabulous lavenders and penstemon last few years that are now really kicking on. Cost me only a few pounds.
