Ok so a single shot .410 to be precise but it is an Anschutz.
He wears the cartridge belt like Pancho Villa and despite being convinced he had shot first a Pheasant then a wood cock the only tally again was a single Squirrell. At least this mexican revolutionary is doing his bit to preserve the native reds!
I must get him out with the duck and goose flighting before the season ends! Anyone know where you can get non toxic in .410?
Oh and thanks to Nigel and the two Richards for shooting, Vanessa and Charles and Richard for beating.
See you all in the new year.
Maybe I can leave you all with a little clip of how it should be done?

Look at the picture here and you can see where this guy broke through the guardrail, right side where the people are standing on the road (pointing). ?The pick-up was traveling from right to left when it crashed through the guardrail. ?It flipped end-over-end, across the culvert outlet, and landed right side up on the left side of the culvert facing the opposite direction from which he was travelling. ?
Now look at the 2 ND picture below...
If this guy didn't believe in God before, do you suppose he believes now?

If only they were half as interesting as Shameless then perhaps life would be bearable, I know the cast are all scallies but that is sadly where you author is from until my mother thankfully evacuated us to Cornwall where despite there being nothing to vandalise Bambibashers older brother couldnt kick his habits.
Luckily I joined the army and here I am.
Anyway back to Radio 4 and the announcement that the Liberal Democrat leadership election result was announced.
Now far from me to bore your already dull midweek evenings with such tripe, the literal dems are usually boring enough for that without my help. I want you to consider the party of liberalism and high taxes that cant really make its own mind up on what day it is has managed to elect a leader.
The obvious clue to all of this is in the poll results, bland faceless no one No1 polled 20, 477 votes against some other nobody that polled 20, 988 votes. How did they manage to get 42,000 adults to admit to being party members and look even then they could hardly tell the difference between two former euro party trough snufflers and the one that won has been in westminster for all of two years. well the Call me dave brigade must be quaking in their collective shoes now.
I dont think so somehow, which is a pity as they need a kick up their jacksies if they are to overturn the stalinists embedded in Whitehall now.
This has been doing the rounds for a while but thanks to Elmer Fudd for passing this on!Thanks to Mr FM for this and like him Rum Sodomy and the Lash is one of my favourite LPs of all time!
Before I go and spend some more unearnt money on cleaning rods for my rifles, (carbon fibre rods at that) I will leave you with something suitably seasonal:

Drinks were taken by the beaters before the last drive! Obviously everything came with ice wanted or not.
There were the usual crew of motley mutts present as well as a new pair of beaters Father and son team courtesy of NOBS.
The bag though not massive was still appreciated by all the team who took home something.

I understand Arthur Scargill has been asked to take command of a Citizens’ Militia who, in the event of a Police strike, would:
- wave their pay packets in striking rozzers’ faces
- establish an unlawful central control centre to direct Militia resources to deal with unlawful Police Federation secondary picketing
- persuade the army to dress up in Militia uniforms
- protect Nottinghamshire coppers when they refuse to strike- arrange an historic ‘Battle of Hendon Wood’ where former miners mounted on Blackpool donkeys would mount ferocious baton charges on fresh-faced police probationers
Beware: the government has been stockpiling CSOs. This is not strategically a good time to strike.
STOP PRESS **** STOP PRESS **** STOP PRESS **** STOP PRESS **** STOP PRESS ****
The first Police Wives Support Group has been form in Romford, Essex.
Spokesperson Tracy Shagalott explained:
“No way will the girls tolerate going without a regular supply of imitation leopard skin crombies, MegaArgos Patio BBQ sets and getting their tits done twice a year. We’re here for the duration.”
Good one Trace!

Another couple of members shooting alongside:
My Great Uncle In Montreal had one many years ago!
This to me looks like a private or Volunteer version, perhaps we can have some ideas on this?
Anyway despite the weather we had a good shoot and lunched afterwards on Snake and Pigmy pie at the Clubhouse of the Honourable Artillery Company.
Ok so its sat down at 600 yards on Century but it has one pistol grip and a relatively short barrel. Most importantly its sticking two fingers up to those clowns in the Home Office!
Yeah really committed to controlling gun crime, banning private ownership really worked didnt it you spineless control freaks. Instead of finding those responsible and punishing them under the law you demonised law abiding citizens who will never forgive you lying thieving scum.

Ok so the bus should tell you which town I was in, the skyline behind is the real clue.

Labours answer to its own inability to obey laws they introduced themselves is predictable; new legislation possibly to allow public funding of these career criminals.
The last thing this country needs is more legislation when the current clowns cant even obey the existing ones! That is typical of politicians, all legislation and no enforcement.
The Nimrod accident enquiry reports today. Another attempt by the politicians and the politicians in uniform to spin the news about how good they are and that tosser spouting platitudes about heroes, what would he know, the complete waste of my tax pounds.
Anyway rant of the week over or is it? Nimrods replacement running 4 years late is what?
Yes you guessed it another Nimrod!
I am so glad that I dont fly in service aircraft any more!
So lets have some fun and remember dont forget kids can call your bluff as well!
