  1. I have tried Rakers, Mole Valley Country stores, TGS, C.& H. Weston and Chichester Armoury (who had some, but not enough)
  2. Hello, I am looking for gun shops in Surrey or surrounds that stock Ely 20 gauge cartridges for pigeons (28 gram 6s) - I am not having much luck - any recommendations?
  3. Looks like the canes from the garden centre will do nicely
  4. Another good point! I use a carp barrow for my gear and that seems to work ok when the ground is dry - bit of a pig when it is muddy!
  5. Yes, I guess that will work - I was thinking something metal, as the ground is like concrete at the moment - a screwdriver with mallet should sort that out though to make a hole for the bamboo
  6. Hi guys, I am shooting over standing wheat at the moment, and I need to get shell decoys up above crop to be obvious to the birds. I have balanced them ontop of the wheat, but if there is any wind they soon fall through and I risk losing them. Has anyone seen or used any type of ready made spike or peg to tape the spring sticks to to give them more height? I am using floaters, whirly and flapper duct taped to a spare hide pole but wanted to get my shell decoys up there as well. Cheers Trenta
  7. Very interesting - thanks for the replies. I will give it a go next time I am out, will make sure it is sloweed down though
  8. Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone has used corvids on a whirly when targetting crows, rooks and jackdaws? if so, any tips or is it a waste of time? Thanks! Trent
  9. Hello again - I have an FF6 flapper - however I have problems with the wings of the birds coming off the flapper arms - meaning I have to go out and reset it all the time. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it? I was thinking of bending the point of the flapper arm back, but I am not sure this would work, and it would make mounting the wings more difficult? Thanks in advance, again!
  10. Hi Old'un - the rotary and spreaders are illustrated in the photo below - the spreaders are on the top right corner:
  11. My spreaders dont have that middle bar - where did you get spreaders like that?
  12. Thanks for the response. Now that you explain it like that - the setup makes much more sense. I take it you put the wing spreaders on then position the bird on the magnet arm as you suggest, then bring the wing spreader back up to get the right final position of the birds - right? I guess it is easy when you know how... 🤪
  13. Hi Guys, I am looking for a set of cradles for dead birds that will fit to my pigeon magnet. I have the cradles that came with the magnet, which are basically a V shape - which holds our the wings, however I am looking for a cradle that has a spike in the middle to keep the bird's head up. Any recommendations? Thanks Trent

    Beretta 695

    HI PPP - how are you finding your Beretta 695? I am thinking of buying one - but it is a lot of money so just want to get your opinion.
  15. Hey HP, I just stumbled across your post - I am also from New Zealand (Piha Originally) but have been living in the UK for the past 19 years. I have been really getting into the shooting scene here and have had some amazing days out. My gear consists mainly of Hunting and Fishing apparel that I have bought back from NZ. I try to get back to NZ at least once a year - my parents live in Matakana, so great fishing around there as well. I have a boat back in NZ, but the last time I was back I found it better (and cheaper) to just fish around the rocks - Scandretts bay etc. I got some nice snapper within 5 mins drive! I try to take my boy who is 6 out every weekend here - either shooting for pigeons or crows, fishing or pheasant beating - love the outdoor lifestyle. Not the same as NZ, but it is what you make of it. Enjoy the Spring fising back home! Cheers Trenta
