  1. Hi guys, I am part of a small self managed rough shoot in Henly-in-Arden. We have 2 possibly 3 guns available for next season. We have a few work parties in the off season to manage the land and prepare for the new birds so willingness to help out is appreciated but not required. We also have access to the land all year round for vermin shooting. Roughly 300 acres. You would also be expected to help with the feeding and topping up feeders in certain areas throughout the year once the birds are in place. Unless you pay for gun only. We normally put down 100 ducks and 100-150 pheasant each year and shoot 10 days through the season. Of which we have 6-7 self driven/beaten drives a day. Our bags are anywhere from 2 to 20 birds so not huge but fun. We are also located in the middle of 3 other surrounding large shoots so often get a-lot of spill over. Ideally you would also have a dog to assist with the beating. We are a nice mixed bunch of guys that enjoy being out on the farm. The price for a gun and assisting with work parties and feeding is £400. The price for just a gun with no work parties or feeding is £500. Let me know if your interested at all. We are also looking for beaters or people with dogs. Our shoot is also ideal for training your dog as we are all relaxed and would be grateful for having the dog with us. Thanks Nick.

  3. FREE Zabala LP71, 12 bore with 26 inch barrels, 2.75 inch chamber, non-ejector and half choke in both barrels. Gun is mechanically solid with tight lock up and bores are immaculate. Bluing at the end of the left barrel has been partially re-blued it but it needs a few more treatments. Gun was given to me by Smudger on here but I now need the space in the cabinet ASAP. I will throw in an old Winchester gun slip so it is ready to go. Collection from Portsmouth by SGC holders.

  5. I see there are some very knowledgeable folk on the forum so hopefully someone may have an idea. I have a punt gun - with no makers name. It is a quality gun and the action is quite distinctive so someone might recognise it. It is 9' long, 1 13/16th diam bore (as far as I can tell). All the screws are individually numbered and she weighs just over 100lbs Unfortunately she didn't come with a punt so I made up a trolley to take up the recoil and transport her about. The screw thread is interesting - it slopes at the front but the rear of the threads is vertical - I guess to take the pressure - I understand this is know as a buttress or Archimedean thread. As you see it is a breech loader with dovetail cases which slide into the breech face. There is a 15 thou taper on the chamber so I assume it was designed for brass cartridges - I had three made as it didn't come with any. It also has a 10 thou taper on the dovetail slot, which makes it really easy to load the cases - not something I imagine you would find in a cheap and cheerful gun. It also comes in a 12' fitted oak box - unfortunately no label. As she is too big for wildfowling her next outing will be on the Queens jubilee weekend - I am assuming it is open season on 40 gallon oil drums by then? Here are a couple of links to some slow motion video clips...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys80KJ5FHeY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8QQ6MUwORw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BuiHNBvsKk

  9. I do not own a gun or even a licence yet but want to get into shooting. ive had a look at the government application form and it requires me to have proof of good use for the firearm. I am looking at getting a rifle. Not an air powered one. I would want to join a shooting club like target practice but don't want to buy membership for proof if I may not be accepted for licence as it would be a waste of money. Whats the easiest thing to put as 'good use' for ownership for a firearm? Thanks lads.
  10. Following a discussion with 1066, inspired by me seeing this: https://www.secureitgunstorage.com/gun-safe/technology/ I have finally got round to my much cheaper DIY solution: Bought a cheap set of storage bins off eBay (VonHaus - £22) that came with the plastic racking panels. You can't see it in that photo but there is a second panel at the bottom. The top one needed some modifying to fit around the welded metal pieces in the cabinet (Sealey SEGS8) that hold the foam barrel supports in place but it is such a tight fit (had to be thumped in with a rubber mallet) that there aren't any screws/bolts actually stopping it from moving. The aforementioned supports have never been particularly good - for the barrel to actually fit in them means the rifle must be tilted back to clear the scope, which tends to make closing the door difficult. I'm going to design and 3D print my own clip in brackets. The white unit at the top is a caravan dehumidifier - Aldi special buy a couple of weeks ago. It's supposed to be rechargeable but it hasn't been in long. Next to it is a disposable dehumidifer (nearly full of water) and at the bottom is another rechargeable beanbag style dehum (which will need drying in the oven, I think). Stuck to the back of the door is a Napier vapour sachet thing. Moving my mods out of the ammo cabinet gives me more space in there so I've put some of the spare bins in to hold magazines, bolts, loose ammo etc. I also have space for my bipod and torches plus other bits and bobs that I might use - knives for example. Got plenty of little bins left for organising screws and stuff in the workshop too.
  11. BSA deep 8 gun cabinet with top ammo lockbox, 2 keys. Height 1500mm Depth 345mm Width 460mm I'll also throw in a new Napier sachet as I'll have no need for it. Located in Middlesbrough £175, I can deliver locally if needed Thanks for looking Mark
  12. Hello Chaps, I don't have any particular comment on the following, except that they're provided for anyone who might be interested in seeing them. There's not an awful lot of information about the little Flobert shells online - that I can find anyway - so these are published here to add to what little there is. These are example 5-yard, 10-yard, 15-yard and 20-yard patterns from a 9mm, cylinder-choked garden gun, using the Fiocchi 7½g / #7½ (Italian) cartridge. I believe individual pellet energy at 15 yards is around 0.7ftlbs for reference. Circles / part-circles on the images below are 20". I hope this is of some use to someone, at some point.
  13. hi guys atm i am using a hatstan striker 1000s it a good air rifle and i really like it but i want to buy a new air rifle just to have another one i guess i was just wondering if anyone could give any good suggestion of a air rifle to get and the rough price of the air rifle if you know thanks
  14. Hi Guys, I've shot clays a few times and I've decided it's a sport I would like to get into. I'm from North Yorkshire and I was wondering if anyone knew of any clubs in the area (rather than just experience day type venues) I found one in Barwick-in-Elmet which seems excellent (£35 for 50 clays including instructor, gun hire and cartridges). You turn up for 3 of the instructor led sessions and then you can become a member if they think you're competent (I'm not a certificate holder) This is the kind of thing I'm after, and it's a very good option, but I was wondering if there's something very similar a little closer to home that someone on here may know of? In due course, I'd like to become a certificate holder and a club closer to home would mean that it's easier to go down the range on a Sunday if I get board if I do eventually own my own firearm/become a certificate holder. Cheers! Ian
  15. I have a Baikal 12g side by side that is no longer required, therefore I would like to offer this gun to somone who is just starting out in shooting. Preferably a young lad or girl who just needs something to start them off. obviously this will need to go on thier parants or thier own certificate if they are lucky enough to have one. The gun itself is in reasaonable condition, its a side by side with 14.5 lop, 28 3/4 barrels and 2 3/4 chambers, non ejector. chokes unknown but would expect cylinder and quarter or somthing alike. The gun itself is not the prettiest but will do somone a good turn. The gun will need to be picked up from Essex, please no people trying to say you want it for you cousins second counsins aunts daughters son...(no messers) If you are genuinly interested and have a son or daughter than wants a small relaible 12g then please message me. Len PS you will need a gun slip when collecting.

  23. Hi all, Am new to this scene and waiting for my FAC to come through, 13 week's and counting since I applied, had the home interview and have been window shopping since. Advice please on these two before the bank card gets exhausted by her indoors and her Christmas shopping. Anschutz 1417 G or Weihrauch HW60J in .22lr . Scopes, Am using a Hawke 3-12x50 AO IR on my AirArms TX200 and am very pleased with it, any reason to spend any more than what that cost me. Moderator, SAK seem to be dog's from what I read, so again any advance on those for the same sort of money. Many thanks in advance.
  24. I've never shot a goose; in fact, I've never pointed a gun at a goose. And it's a long, long time since I shot a duck. Now, however, opportunity knocks. Keen to learn, I've bought some books. I was surprised to read the following in Mike Swan's good book "Rough Shooting". Talking about wildfowling, he says that his father believed in small shot and they tended to use 6's in Eley Impax with 1oz. of shot, and Hymax at 1 1/4 oz. But one day he ran out of 6's and used some Impax 7's he had in his bag; he found that "they worked admirably"- he missed no more than he usually did, and the proportion of wounded birds "fell dramatically". He says, "Today, for all normal game shooting and wildfowling purposes, I use these 1oz. loads of No.7's, with my gun bored improved cylinder in both barrels. (improved cylinder in both barrels... - my comment) If I were marksman enough to use full choke reliably, I might go up to 6s for extra range, but I know that my shooting would deteriorate dramatically". Even for geese- which he acknowledges "pose a special problem"- he breaks with tradition and uses 4's or 5's rather than 3's. He says, "Earlier this season (early 1990s- my note.) I was surprised by a Canada coming in from behind. I took a hurried shot and it fell very dead to a 1oz. trap load of 7 1/2 shot from quite a reasonable altitude". I think this is a good book ,one which I'd recommend for folk in my kind of situation in relation to rough shooting generally, but I was really surprised to read the above. I was also interested to note that he makes no reference to a need for a 3-inch chamber, though that's maybe implicit in his reference to "Hymax", etc. I wish, though, that he'd spelt that out as I'm thinking that I need to get another, 3" chambered, gun if I'm to make a job of the goose side of things. I guess this subject has been done to death over the years on the forum, but I would like to hear reactions from those with more knowledge than I i.e. everybody on here.
  25. Hi all just looking for some help I've got a cz 22LR and wanting to take the gun to have the barrel cut down dose anyone no how short I can have it taken down to and what are the pro's and con's of having this done thanks shippers
