  1. Thats pretty extortionate, I'm going to the Irish game fair in Shanes Castle Antrim, for me and my wife, 2 kids and the father in law its costing us £35. As far as I know parking is free. I'm hoping with there being a couple of years without a game fair that this one will be well attended.
  2. We get some cracking big moths visiting. My missus hates them, just gets freaked out by them for some reason. I live not far from a butterfly house thing where they breed them, both my kids went to it on their nursery school trip and it was amazing to see moths/butterfly's bigger than your hand fluttering about.
  3. I'll add to that my cousin had a black and tan one, ear issues and never fully emptying the bladder leading to dribbles everywhere are commonplace with him. He also sits and bites his toenails which is one horrible bloody noise
  4. Supremely jealous of your new addition! Good luck and enjoy! One tool to look out for to improve your surface finish, particularly on mild steel is a vertical shear tool. One thing I would also advise you buy is either a leather apron or a good shop coat, and don't forget to roll the sleeves up, wear nothing below the elbow.
  5. Thats going to give the wallet a nasty burn! Beautiful gun that it is though I'm sure it will be worth it. Hope you're all good and no bumps or bruises
  6. On the subject of doing in vermin by any means possible, I know a farmer who was so concerned about the amount of badgers and the interconnected setts on part of his ground that he drove down with a huge slurry trailer full of slurry an effluent and piped the whole lot down the main hole and drowned the lot. Another fella I went out shooting with thought nothing of peppering rabbits at 70yards with a 12bore. I refuse to be anywhere near him now for his lack of safety. In my misspent youth I will admit to trying to poach a few pheasants from a syndicate by having my mate chase them over a small rise while I chucked my small Bowie style knife into the air to try to intercept.... could count on a missing hand how many I hit 😆
  7. I watched the first 2 series of it, well worth a watch in my opinion
  8. An 18yr old who is also suspected of killing his own grandmother. He walked into the school with a handgun and an AR15. Death toll is now standing at 21 I think. Sadly there just doesn't seem to be a way to stop it. I mean sure you could arm the teachers but what kind of statement does that make to the world. Rather than go to fix your country's issues you would rather have a gun there incase the problem comes to you. I'm just awaiting Alex Jones to come out and tell people that its not real and they are just crisis actors like he did with sandy hook
  9. Just seen a report of another school shooting in the USA, elementary school in Texas this time I think. Why do lunatics target children?
  10. Your last sentence sums it up really, since I lost my old cocker a couple of years ago to mammary cancer I find every time I stroke my dogs im feeling them for any abnormalities because as we know they can't do it for themselves. Even more important right now with ticks about! My new pup went in for her 2nd round of vaccinations and I had the vet check the wee remnant of her umbilicle as I was concerned it wasnt closing, as with most things I was told nothing to worry about right then but keep an eye on it. That little bit of reassurance goes a long way
  11. Could be worse! you could be like me...an unattractive bald bald in your 30s 😄
  12. Just to expand on that you just reminded me, ever see the mark Wahlberg film Shooter? He does it well where he uses rattle cans and grabs leaves to use as masking to give the realtree type camo pattern on his sniper rifle. I had considered it on my remington as its now just a boring grey plastic stock
  13. My older dog had something like that a couple of years ago, it was a lump with a wee scab, because it had the scab I chances giving it a wee squeeze and there was an eruption of thick cream cheese like stuff. I gave it a good flushing out with a massive load of alcohol wash... hand sanitiser that we all had gallons off 2 years ago! It kinda filled again and I gave it the same treatment and it hasn't come back since. I'll admit when I felt the lump I panicked a bit as we all do when we feel a lump!
  14. I managed to use like a camo duct tape on my remington 597, actually looked OK til eventually I got fed up with the look of it. Was a pain in the hoop to remove all the residue afterwards
  15. I think marks n Spencer are going to suffer more from the general price increases because of the rampant inflation. They are deluded if they think many people do their full weekly shop in Marks n Spencer. Most of their stuff is WAY over priced as it is. They can keep their stuff from the EU. I could care less.
