  1. Do you chaps think these prices will subside to a realistic level after the virus passes. ?
  2. Over last few months Typical gun dog pup prices have increased. 2k for a pup and Apparently sold. Is this the way it is going to be from now on or are there other factors dictating this hype. And finally is this sustainable.?
  3. If you can take some measurements put them on a drawing or draw on to an image that would be helpful.
  4. The owner of the inverted card die let it go when he parted with a reloading press last year. So its make one from scratch Anyone with an 8 or 10 version do a rough drawing with sizes please so we can try and work things out from there.
  5. Will get the sizes i know who has one, need to make one in 12 bore myself.
  6. Thank you conor for this information.
  7. Poor season for me on the Foreshores. Despite looking good at the start and a few memorable outings, weather was mild and the numbers of both ducks and geese were below average. Any pinks seemed sporadic and unsettled. Travelling up to Scotland was slightly more productive, but hard work. Weather looked to be improving but rain took over and dominated the scene, testing patience and equipment to the limit. Pinks were around on some places i shoot throughout the season, but in lowish numbers, shy and difficult to get to terms with. The wet weather flooded fields giving plenty of
  8. Yes agree but i was talking your typical left hander on a typical right hand gun.
  9. Out of all the guns in the wet and filth semi autos or pumps are the most practical from a keeping clean m\maintenance point of view. Water gets everywhere in any gun, leaving it is a breeding ground for rust and problems even safety problems. Doubles that might get around this are not often encountered in wildfowling, they would be detachable lock side locks. these can be cleaned much eassier than your typical box lock double. Hammer guns with underleaver are pretty full prof in the filth the lug is manual keep the lugs clean and sevice the locks and they take the filth and
  10. On double triggers if you shoot left hand, the trigger blade fingger pads are made orientated to the right. the back trigger for a left hander his finger is on the edge of the blades finger section . But i do see the thinking behind the position on the plate seeming wrong handed right handed you are like reaching into the guard trigger group to get the pad which id cranked to the right. I know i shoot left and never had a problem with the way right hand double trigger guns are set up.
  11. Side by sides and over and under are not generaly stripped unless its had a proper soaking or ytou are wanting to service it. Semi autos pumps and bolt actions are designed in most cases to be practical field stripped, and this means in most cases when these guns are used in bad conditions its much easier to keep them properly maintained. Any double gun can get debris in the bite or barrel flats breach face any slight debris there can render the gun unusable, there is not enough clearance in the moving parts to allow any dirt in there. Any gun any type needs consideration on th
  12. Not sure in the case of a single trigger SxS, but when double triggers the triggers are staggered and cranked to the right on rear trigger mostly. On left hand trigger plate and triggers are set for the left.
  13. This is the way to go you can get ingots relatively cheap now, the production up to uk size 4 is possible on typical lead dropping equiptment, but once you get any bigger you need to mold it and it gets impractical. For USA BBs Roto metals bismuth is the best option. As for TSS its no more a barrel damager than steel which is fine anyway , its mass means pressures are if anything reduced so TSS at its price point is a good safe option. The 15 weight or 13 weight is cheaper and popular option, but TSS or to be accurate 18 weight is where you can achieve the best performance.
