  1. Maybe you didn’t hear of any one being prosecuted for shooting over stubble fields using the general license because the licenses were illegal. Now we have legal licences it’s also the first time we have stubble fields to shoot or not. The Northern Ireland general license is about to be changed chances are it will be similar to the Welsh general licence. It’s up to the individual how they use the license for the country they will be using it. The licences give advice it’s common sense to use it. The simple answer is to have individual license with the users name and the user to be informed of any updates ( licences have already been updated). It shouldn’t be long before this happens, the sooner the better. Then if anyone is prosecuted they will have the licence taken and it won’t affect any other licence holders.
  2. A friend asked me if I could identify birds in a photo on his computer. It was a photo of dead pigeons laid out in neat rows on a stubble field. The top rows were woodpigeon and the bottom row had about six stock doves. He showed me two more photos that had stock doves in the rows of pigeons. He told me that the stock doves were described as feral pigeons in the story that went with the photos. The photos were from this website and it was the first time I had seen this website .
  3. He was driving a vehicle ,about to go onto the road to get supplies ,when he was stopped by the police. He was wearing a cartridge belt when stopped . I don’t know why he explained that he was 200 metres away from a boundary. I have been stopped by the police when shooting or carrying a gun for over sixty years from the local police man who would always remove his bicycle clips before he spoke to police in panda cars firearms police and police in helicopters. No one ever told me to drop the gun/ weapon. People and times have changed and will change even more.
  4. It was bad timing been stopped in the car on the field. It would have been different when shooting over the field. I don’t know why you had to show you were 200 mts from a boundary .
  5. Hi yes the person who reported the shooting will have been informed of the outcome and may well be questioned. I would ask walked up to google earth the (rural ) area where he was shooting . And google fatal shootings in the area. The police should ask the person who reported shooting why they reported shooting.
  6. If people choose to live near farmland they should know that farming is a business it’s an outdoor factory with large noisy machinery. Shooting pigeons over crops and using gas guns is part of farming. I’ve had problems with noise over shooting and gas guns going off at the same time but it was the local environmental department that were involved. Clay pigeon grounds will be regulated when they can shoot. sporting rights will be to use the land for specific types of sports. Shooting pigeons doesn’t have to be in rural countryside were no one would be reported. Lord Lichfield’s rural Norfolk is light years away from this field, more suburbia than rural. The problem with these places is that some people think they own the fields and no one should be shooting. The police would have stopped the vehicle the way they were trained to and it will be on film. When this happens it puts shooters off but it also keeps dog walkers away for a while.
  7. Hi it is scary stuff. And it has stopped people shooting in the area. I’ve had local police and armed police come out to me. When someone reports someone with firearms the firearms police will come out it’s their job. I find when people see police with guns come out and shooting continues and no one is taken away in a Black Maria like it or not it’s legal and they keep away. Some fields may not be shot for a years depending on the crop then one day hundreds of pigeons will be shot . People go on the Facebook have a moan and then someone calls the police. The person who called the police will be told of the outcome and maybe told off at the same time.
  8. 8% reduction in registered firearms owners but numbers have been increasing over the years, maybe because clay pigeon shooting is more popular now. There is more hassle with shooting now. Laws rules regulations health and safety. I live in a built up area in a large town and I have shooting on nearby farms and my local estuary and I have shot all my life. I have shot over areas that are now built over . Large housing estates (new towns)1000s of houses including shops and pubs, factories ,industrial estates,motorway,farm buildings converted into homes, power station,supermarket,fire station, driving test centre, 2 country park ,3 cemetery ,2 golf course ,2sports ground ,sewage plant, and council recycling centre. There is a lot of wildlife in some of these places. A lot has changed in my lifetime but it doesn’t stop me shooting . I never realised how many areas I shot over until I read some of the comments on this topic. It’s a lot of land that’s been recycled. It didn’t stop me from shooting .
  9. Hi Holloway I have.410 loading data with csbo powder but it’s with plastic gualandi micro h17 wads and 19.5 grams of lead. I have loaded 28 gauge with csbo power and bismuth. The data was for lead shot. I just used the same weight in bismuth .
  10. No one should have a problem showing the police there license or firearms. If you have issues with doctors regarding cost or time limits when asking if you are safe to use sporting firearms good luck if the doctor asks why do you want weapons and what are you going to do with them. Your vehicle will be flagged for firearms that’s why you were asked about firearms, to make sure they were secure and not loaded. I don’t know how showing a dog to the police officer explained what you use firearms for. If firearms license is changed to weapons licence they may have asked have you any weapons in your possession or a pit bull dog in the vehicle. This bma doctor referred to firearms as weapons it’s ok to be not overly fussed about it, the same as a lot of shooters but I have done something about it as has wymberley.
  11. Hi old’un wymberly has shown the part of the government news report. I’m not good with links. Dr Peter Holden BMA said about doctors patients owning weapons that can be used with lethal outcomes. From the 12th of July when we ask our doctor for a medical report will the doctor ask are you safe to have an arsenal of weapons or are you safe to have a gun safe of sporting guns. The country had enough trouble the last time someone in government said Iraq had weapons. It’s important that license gun owners are flagged with doctors but licences for weapons is misinformed. It’s important for doctors and patients to understand what the flag is for. Maybe BASC could question this before someone changes the wording on our medical request forms.
  12. Hi Holloway l only have 10 TPS left over you can have them. Can l ask what you will be loading in .410 as I have some plastic wads in.410
  13. Hi Conor O Gorman has put a link at the top of the page for the Government News website.

  15. Hi wymberley it’s on the government news and communications site page 5 12th July. Dr peter Holden said it in his first paragraph.
