    I was going to suggest putting the lottery on, but then thought although you had a massive stroke of luck with not being injured, you also had a massive stroke of bad luck with the incident.

    I think that reflects in the win.

    Glad you was not injured.

    Glad you’re not hurt 

    and good to see you’re taking it in your stride 

    hopefully the reason for the incident will be found and steps taken to ensure it doesn’t happen again 

    All the best 

    Of

    A guy on our shoot had a blockage in his barrel about 1/4 of the way along the barrels, looked like a piece of wad when we got it out but he sent it away and the cartridge company said part of a buffer between the powder and wad which I have never heard of?  Either way if he had fired a shot it would have blown the barrel.

    Yes mate my new fore-end I'm gutted 😂

    It split right on the line my thumb was holding! Strong hands holding in that pressure!

    I sat down for a couple of minutes then went back to the truck for the other MK38 shot the next 4 without a blip, using the same cartridges. I actually ended up shooting better that I was with this gun too. It was the talk of the shoot at Whitfield yesterday I believe!

     

    Also put a ticket on the Euro lottery last night, I woke up to an email this morning to say I had an important message in my National lottery account, indeed I was a winner £2.90 Get in!

     

    🙂 At least you can joke about it; could have been so much worse. 👍

    Wow. Scary. Very glad hear you are okay. Very lucky too!

    I'll be very interested in the findings.

    I won £2.90 on Euro millions on Friday too, yet my fore end is pleasingly intact and the barrels only have holes in the appropriate places.  If we bunce together we could buy a pint on George Street to celebrate you keeping your digits.

    I'd ping a mail to Browning saying that the fore end you bought last year is clearly defective...

    Leave the rib alone and shoot more head up.position. you can now have a high rib game gun. Buy a 20 bore drop in liner,glue it in place and jobs a goodun. A 20 / 12 combo gun.

    Managed to get an exhaust bandage from Halfords today after a bit of tapping I managed to to get rid of the sharp edges so it would stick.

    Got some duck tape for the fore-end so should be good for the pigeons tomorrow packed some gun gum in case the patch doesn't hold!

    That’s the way to do it 😂

    bit overkill really a mr bump sticking plaster would have been enough 😉😂
