  1. I have bought gold coins for many years, if you buy gold sovereigns and Britannia’s there is no capital gains tax as they are U.K. legal tender. Most investors expect to see the good price to continue to rise and reach the £2,000/once mark. gold bullion dealers in the U.K. are based in Birmingham, go on their websites and nearly all have price tracking charts going back years, you will see the price fluctuations and peaks always come when there is economic uncertainty and COVID-19, China threatening India and Australia etc. is causing the spike. i have bought from Atkinson’s the Jewellers in Sutton Coalfield and can recommend Paul, his prices are always a % or two below other dealers.
  2. Evening Badsworth i have a case tumbler, Lee press, Lee reloading manual, powder dispenser, ,RBS scales and other odds and ends that I am happy to sell if you want to buy used equipment. You would need to collect it from West Oxfordshire. £100. i can send pictures if you are interested
  3. Buy a new gun and walk out of the shop and it has lost half of it’s value, buy a Beretta AL 391 for £400 and sell it for what you paid.
  4. All my commercial vehicles are VW’s and I buy seat covers from the main dealer. Some of these covers have been in use for over 12 years and 100k plus miles and still look good. Don’t other manufacturers produce seat covers for their vehicles?
  5. Not a lot of work done in there, no sawdust, no shavings, he must spend his time cleaning and polishing, how sad
  6. It can’t do you any harm letting farmers know you are available, last year a local farmer asked me to shoot three foxes that had killed over a hundred of her chickens. Though the farm is only two miles from my house I never asked for permission as I had been told through friends that two men already had permission. They were unable for some reason to kill the foxes, lack of knowledge/skill/field craft I don’t know but she contacted me and asked if I could shoot them. The first night I saw one but could not take the shot because of the backdrop and having a rifle and I think she thought, oh, another useless man 👨. Went back the next night with the 12 bore and a hide and called them in, three nights and 6 or 7 hours 3 dead foxes and now a permission on my doorstep that I can go to anytime, I just phone her and tell her I am going to be on the land. make yourself known and do a good job for the farmer and the permissions will come. Best of luck.
  7. Many years ago my friends son was knocked off his bike and killed by a driver cutting across a corner. The police attended and the driver was an Irish Tinker. He gave an address of a caravan park on the edge of Oxford, He had no birth certificate or other documents to prove his identity and only produced a paper copy of a driving license. Did he turn up at court, of course not he had disappeared and no one knows who he really was. Thames Valley Police have had an officer dragged behind a car drive by these travellers and this time they have not let them disappear, stable door and all that.
  8. Close your eyes and mount your rifle pointing toward the target. Open your eyes and and look where the rifle is pointing. keep the rifle still and move your feet so the target is on the end of the foresight. Close your eyes and remount the rifle, even if you are only slightly left or right of the target move your feet and repeat. This way you will get what target shooter call, the natural point of aim. this takes tension out of the muscles especially in your shoulders and arms pushing or pulling the sights onto the target. This over a course of fire this will result in tighter groups as your muscles will not tire or cramp. shotgun shooter you only focus on the bird or clay and point the gun, if you focus on the bead at the end of the barrel you will invariably miss, if you are using open sights on a rifle or pistol you must focus on the position of the foresight in the backlight, eyes can only focus on one thing at a time and with open sights it must be the foresight position, the target will be slightly blurred but thats fine. With telescopic sights it is easy to see a clear target and crosshairs at the same time but not so much fun. stuart
  9. Over the 10,000 and then the 100,000 six days ago but no response from the government, I wonder why🤔
  10. It is on my FAC as it holds three in the tube, one on the lifter and one up the barrel. There are four notches cut into the butt so I assume it has some real history if only it could talk🤔 I have no idea what it is worth, in the UK it has limited market value as you need a FAC but everyone who has shot it has wanted another go.
  11. I have a 1897 underleaver and love shooting black powder carts, you don’t always know if you have hit the clay, rabbit etc because of all the smoke after firing on a windless day but it always makes me smile hen I use it.
  12. You wrote cash on collection, what is your post code please?
  13. The lifeboat men and women, straight or not are heroes, not some person crying on tv and saying I’m coming out after cheating on my wife and family.
