  2. Dear PW I work in London and live on the South Coast. I have wanted another dog, we have Jack Russell 4yo and entire. The jack goes to work with the wife. I've been given the OK to bring a dog with me to work. I'd ideally like a small springer bitch and would like to give a home to a working dog that for some reason doesn't cut it. IE a 2 or 3 yo dog not a young pup 4 days a week will involve a short walk to train, 80min train ride, 2mile walk through Royal parks and quiet streets. Out at lunch. The reverse journey home in the evening. At work she'll be in a bed in her own are

  5. Hi all, i'm new to the forum so hope i'm posting in the right area. Got a question maybe someone can help answer on here. I moved to live on a narrowboat last year, changed SGC to new authority (Northants) and FEO has said cabinet on a boat is no issue. I am on a secure mooring, just looking for some enlightenment on how to secure cabinet in the boat. I've heard of a few ways it could be done but does anyone on here have practical experience on the matter? Looking for the easiest way ideally, under the bed out of sight. Thank you and any suggestions are appreciated. Rob
  6. Hi, Having little money now the season of buying stuff that people don't need for people you don't like approaches I thought I had a good deal where I got an older pump action Multichoke in px for my £75 Italian semi auto A5 copy but, the guy took a cash deal instead leaving me grumpy and looking around for a plan B. Once I get shot of my Franchi , my slightly pathetic budget is £200 which means i can have a Hatsan or an older Mossberg. This should be a no brainer in favour of the Mossberg but Hatsan seems to have ironed out the problems it had with earlier models, I'm not c
  7. Hello My plan to make sloe vodka is as follows: wash hands, remove blackthorns and apply bandages. Sterilise kilner jar in oven - 190 degrees for about 20 mins. Allow to cool and add sloes that have defrosted and been smacked about with rolling pin but not pricked. Add equal sugar to sloe weight. Top up with SWMBO's vodka Add some vanilla (?) not sure about this bit. Shake every couple of days till sugar dissolved. After 3 moths decant and filter. Then leave till Christmas in the dry dark wardrobe. Does this sound like a plan?, first time and would welcome advice...... N.

  14. Recently bought a hilux pick up and am looking for some storage solutions. A rear canopy is out of the question due to them being silly money cheapest I found was an ifor williams alluminium one but still around £600 with the Vat.

I won't be carrying much apart from some decoys and guns shooting equipment etc it's not a works vehicle so only carrying shopping of a weekend so I think these two boxes should be enough anybody else use these for carrying
  15. Hi guys, Hoping to get some advice if possible? I bought my wife a clay lesson this time last year in the hope that she would love it and want to come again and I would eventually gain a shooting buddy for weekend clay bashing! I have only used my new shotgun twice before rifle shooting took over and fancied getting out on the clays again. Well, as expected she loved it to bits, shot well and came away wanting to go back again. Great, I thought, I knew having her try it would work!! However, the following day she was in a lot of pain. She is petite and had been given a shoulder
  16. Rat problem at my dads farm! We have alot of rats really annoying my dad as they are ruining all the barley and meal for the cows & sheep. So we really want rid of them. My dad is really not a fan of poison as he says you don't know where the rats carry it and he doesn't like it with the dogs around. Also similar with traps as the rats are HUGE so takes really big steel bear claw type traps to get them which would probably kill the dog if he was to walk over it! so he doesn't use it anymore. We have got a few with the Jack Russell and sticks Yes sticks (Yard Brush Shafts to be exact). It i

  18. Hi guys i use my old baikal o/u fixed choke for pigeon and crows and the odd bunter. even though i have shot for many years with it i am considering a lighter and smaller gauge, possibly a 20 bore for the same pursuits.the reason for change is i am 8 stone wet have a very light frame and i am finding moving through the late side of 40 my muscle mass and tone is not what it used to be.i have found on a few occasions this year when rattling off consecutive shots (if i am lucky enough) that i am feeling it both in fatigue and also discomfort. i also walk a bit with the gun so a lighter tool requ
  19. Hi all, Trying to navigate though the new world of cyber meet and greet and throwing a line out to anyone that might be able able to help... Last year I returned back to the glorious rolling hillsides of Hampshire, after a 5 year stint in dry dusty Australia and I'm looking to meet someone/people that wouldn't mind giving me abit of a intro back into shooting..
