  1. Thanks for the responses. I’ve decided I’m not going to bother until all the restrictions are lifted.
  2. Hi all, thoughts on private gun transfers / sales during the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and if they’re allowed or not? (Maybe not until restrictions are lifted?)

    Ferrets as Pets

    😂 Do they have a particular liking or will they take anything? One of the things I was wondering was if they were bad for chewing at things in the house didn’t think about them pilfering.

    Ferrets as Pets

    I’m considering getting a couple of ferrets not for working but to keep as pets for me the misses and our daughters. Wondering if anyone has done the same and got any tips / advice / do’s / don’t (s) etc?
  5. Thanks, it’s always good to know what to look out for.
  6. Thanks, I’ve looked at the Webley and Scott garden guns, but never handled one. Please forgive me if this sounds daft, after each shot do you have to pull the bolt back and reload into the breech or do they have an internal magazine? I’ve tried to research them but not found what I was looking for.
  7. Is the Norinco bolt action? My daughters are quite petite, I suppose the 20 bore would give longer service, I’ll have a look into them
  8. My daughters are only 8 so I’m worried about the recoil more than anything. I think the 12 bore would be too much I’ve also heard 20 bores can give more of a kick than equivalent load in a 12 I don’t want to put them off on there first attempt. I’ve read they can be a bit useless and expensive for shells but was thinking about .22 or 9mm more to get them used to gun etiquette, firing and recoil. Do you think I’d be better going down the 410 route?
  9. I’m trying to introduce my daughters to shooting and so far they’ve been doing quite well with a small air rifle at targets but they keep asking to try shooting a shotgun. I currently only have 12 bores and don’t want to put them off so was thinking about getting a cheap shotgun for them to have a go with. I’m thinking .22 shotshell / 9mm Flobert or a .410 I’d ideally like a double barrel or 3 shot bolt action / semi but would consider anything if it was suitable. Has anybody got any tips and advice on what to look for and has anybody introduced their children to shooting and got any tips / advice? lastly does anybody fairly local to Leeds have anything suitable languishing in their cabinets that doesn’t get used anymore and they would like to part with?
  10. I’ve recently re-taken up shooting after a fairly long absence, I like all sorts but mainly been shooting clays and target rifle at the moment.
  11. Hello all, I’ve browsed the forums for a while and found a lot of interesting topics so thought I’d join the PW community 👍
