  1. Really good write up. Nice description of the setting, interesting and humorous. Well done and keep the stories coming. I write a journal, not everyday and not always about shooting but try to make it a factual but interesting read for whoever wants to read it. One entry, I posted on here. My Dad did the same (his was beautifully hand written) and captured mostly shooting trips since 1963 to 2010 along with photos. He gave it to my wife, who treasures it and often talks to him about it. As mentioned keep writing, you have a natural talent. 👍
  2. Hi Simon What’s your mobile signal like? If half decent, 3 offer SIM only unlimited data, unlimited calls (apart from premium numbers) and unlimited texts for £10 per month for first six months then £20 per month for two years. I have just taken this deal from £58 per month which included the mobile and tether my work laptop and iPad to it and it is great and now really cheap
  3. I had exactly the same problem with my SXS. Took it to a gunsmith who fitted a rubber pad to the trigger guard which cost very little and never had a problem since.
  4. Thanks but recently bought a Laksen, thanks for asking though
  5. Thanks for all your advice, especially Scully. I have now purchased a Laksen which should be here by Thursday 😀
  6. Thanks for this, just sent to our 4 year old Grandson....reckon he will love it
  7. Thanks Scully will take a look at those as well
  8. Thanks for the info and quite interesting. I can’t believe Musto advertise it as waterproof when it obviously isn’t. Appreciate your help and will remove that coat from the list
  9. I am in the market for a decent coat that I can use for Wildfowling but also use out walking. So it must be windproof, waterproof and warm. I have an army surplus camo jacket for pigeon shooting but don’t think it will be warm enough for fowling and don’t want to be out walking in camo. Having had a look around, there are a couple that I quite like and wondered if anyone has either of these and what their verdict was? Thanks Musto Highland Gore-Tex Ultra Lite DEERHUNTER Muflon Short
  10. Hi, thanks for letting me know but I have other priorities at the moment. Good luck with the sale
  11. Thanks MM, yeah the club have already said they would let me know and show me the ropes but because of the lockdown they are now not taking new members until next year. I already have a trained Lab that I take pigeon shooting and have a Springer that I am training at the mo. Good to hear I won’t need to change my gun as I quite like it. What shot size would I need? Appreciate your advice
  12. Hello folks, I am thinking about starting Wildfowling and have contacted a club on the Humber but wanted some advice on the kit, gun, etc I would need. I have a SxS AYA No 4 and will need to get it checked for shooting steel carts. However the choke is 1/4 on both barrels so good for pigeon but not sure if that would be ok for duck/geese? Also what basic kit will I need? I am guessing anything that is warm (decent thermals and layers) and waterproof for a start and maybe waders but due to the walking, I am guessing to keep everything to a minimum? Also what about the carts. I current
  13. Yep being having exactly the same with Google. I have stopped using it now and use anything other than it
  14. It was £130 - an Epiphone DR-100 - How much would something like that cost?? Around £30 but will vary from shop to shop...well worth the money in my opinion. I have a Epiphone Jumbo acoustic which I took in and it made a huge difference in playing, especially the height of the strings
