  1. I took it once, any activity made me feel sick so I laid down and started daydreaming grey and white images
  2. 😄 nearly spat my coffee over the keyboard!
  3. I had a similar problem on my PC, I had to change from Internet Explorer to a modern search engine (MS Edge in my case)
  4. Cotton Patch, Ark. — Two local men were injured when their pick-up truck left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on State Highway 38 early Monday morning. Woodruff County deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight Monday. Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc and Billy Ray Wallis, 38, of Little Rock are listed in serious condition at Baptist Medical Center. The accident occurred as the two men were returning to Des Arc after a frog-gigging trip. On an overcast Sunday night, Poole's pick-up truck's headlights malfunctioned. The two
  5. Is Carlos Fandango a Pseudonym for Chris Packham? I reckon we are covered by this statement from GL31: The licence allows action to prevent damage which means the licence can be used if serious damaging is occurring or if there is a strong likelihood that it will occur in the absence of licensed action. Every pigeon I shoot has a strong likelihood to cause serious damage
  6. It does look like a Bay boletus as Down South said, you have probably eaten it or binned it by now but I check them by smelling them, they smell like soap to me. If bruised they turn blue-ish, (but so do some others.) There are quite a few Boletus varieties, some considered edible and some not. The one to watch out for is Devil's boletus which will give you montezumas revenge. Below is a the result of an exceptional day's foraging showing Boletus Edulis, Red stalked Boletus, and Bay boletus (top right corner.)
  7. I recently found that I could not make any posts on this site or on Shoot clay forum. I found a work-around today, quite simply by stopping using internet explorer and using Microsoft Edge (other search engines are available.)
  8. depends on the target and what's happening on the day. For close-ish birds - 30 yards or so swing through fire and keep swinging. I had a day where birds were crossing at 50 paces and I found five feet maintained lead did the job every time, another day 10-12feet with tighter chokes maintained was very effective.
  9. yeah, Turdus should cause a bit of a stir!
  10. not on a towpath, footpath, road, park or any similar public place. You can shoot an airgun in your own garden but the pellets must not leave your property. You can shoot on private land where you have permission.
  11. I wanted to change from General Grabber road tyres to General Grabber All Terrain on my Freelander 2 and was told to change all four at the same time. They said I would see warning messages due to the difference in diameter, if I only changed two. Note:- General Grabber All Terrain are a bit noisy
  12. I found this clip which might be useful We used to anneal brass ash trays at school to cherry red but they weren't subject to the same forces as ammo cases. (Yes kids - we were encouraged to make ash trays at school in '63)
  13. It's a common problem and this is why we have two "beaters days" at the end of the season in attempt to reduce the numbers of Cock birds
