Apparently Google has its knickers all in a twist over those cunts in the Eu and some shite about cookies. Frankly if they are biscuits then I will eat them, if you are concerned about this then fuck off somewhere else and read something else.

Newark, The British Shooting Show

Another year goes around and we find that the show organisers had delivered on their promises, a great show and almost all under one roof. I do feel that the fishing stuff would have been better in one line rather than across the top of gun dogs and game keeping as it seemed to form a boundary! The trade stand took almost 4 hours to build this year, only 1 to take down thanks to six helpers; In amongst the dog traders with the competition, good natured as always;

Paul and Richard supping tea early on saturday before it got too busy;

The layout with the new birds from Dokken, I need to practise with the new point and press;
So its a shooting show and I'm an RFD so I took a couple of walks about, I did happen across this stand and much to my pleasure have been offered loan of something for testing;
Something from the deep recesses of my memory and my youth;
Something I will really enjoy;
So the 2011 show season has started, hunting the outlandishly or innapropriately dressed punters season has opened. I bagged this Gent close to our stand;
This poor chap looked like a rabbit in the headlights;
The red cords made a very welcome return;

Even a matching ensemble was seen;

Large and small;

As sunday wore on and the crowds faded we squared away the packing and were very thankful for the heating which worked this year and wasnt stolen;

The crowds drew down to a trickle and we packed up and went back for a last night in the noisiest travelodge on the A1.

Yes it was a straight pull in 7.62 x 51 or .308 if you prefer. It has a black painted match barrel but I will get a spec sheet for when it is here for testing.
