Meanwhile the dogs certainly seemed to enjoy themselves but with the foxes and the pikeys helping themselves to our birds were are on a losing battle;

Now as the BDS seem determined to push for ban on the use of shotguns on deer by farmers for crop protection based on the allegations that deer drives by farmers are taking place again as in the 50's and 60's without any evidence and yet I seem to happen upon this gem, slug accuracy exceeding the BDS rifle test for 100 yards at 200 yards;
It seems that slugs arent counted as available for use in the test!

A trip to an under 12 football game where Alex was the blind git in the black!

Unfortunately the 3 Stags had run out of fireside but had rocking reindeer on tap which was nice enough.
Plenty of nice things to see and the lecture was very interesting opening up insights into our industrial heritage, thanks!

This patently doesnt apply to anyone who has bought a ticket on a commuter train. With prices about to rise in my area by around 10% (just what is inflation again?) it seems that only the stroppy Eastern European bloke who drags the trolley of warm lager and cold tea through our train is the only one who doesnt pay for the privelidge of standing for journeys in excess of an hour.
Southern are messing up the timetable this month and cutting our services so that new trains can run fast from Hassocks into London . Just where does the MD of Southern live? That is assuming its not Paris!

Sadly due to being a numpty I have deleted the pics from the camera so you will have to put up with a video clip until I can work out what I have done!
I will be at a bowling tournament with the kids tomorrow so no wandering around with a gun!

Spartacus enjoying the second drive, this time of year the woods are stunning to see and we are priviliged to be able to spend a few hours in good company in pursuit of game.
A couple more drives after coffee produced a few more birds but we didnt see the woodcock this week. The birds flew well and were where we actually thought they might be! Things are definetly looking up and the Beaters and guns seemed very happy!

Typical Kiwi as well!
I had an interesting evening last night at the IWM for the monthly HBSA lecture, it started with 3 pints of Fireside in the 3 stags and ended with a G&T on the train home!
The published lecture didnt happen sadly due to illness but members stood in and gave a 15 minute effort each, some of the subjects for discussion were ver4y interesting and I have a couple of bad photos below. I wont be identifying them just yet as they are subject to an online quiz on arsse!
Now I owned one of these and sold it years after the ban to fund a stalking rifle!
This is an odd one, if you can identify it I'll be impressed, if not I'll post the other side.
This isnt what it seems either, I was intrigued by the tag on the trigger guard and I must get around to asking!This last one was very interesting and much to the lecturers surprise but not ours a member in the audience had one!
He also gave some great reloading data in the Q&A session, the member not the lecturer!
And now for something different;

Part of the line up and although I didnt hang around at the end for a drink I would like to congratulate Roger 2 for his exceptionally well behaved dogs.Now for another week of soulless commutiung up to London.
A little humour!

Ok all of this was running around to ensure I had enough for the weekend! Enough of what? Enough of these:
