A very busy week draws to a close

On call finished for another month, I thought I would unwind this weekend.We dropped the youngest off at Bowling, drove off to the Kent Equine and Country Show. I dont know if the traders did well but I certainly dont think it was worth the entry fee let alone what they must have charged the stall holders.
Moss Leather goods were there and quality they are, this gent was the first red cords we saw today.
I did however find what has to be the T Shirt to end all t shirts and also tick all the non pc boxes;
We took Samson along and he managed a good time over the bales, 5 and 6 seconds were his best two times;

Being handled by Ben;

In the main marquee there were a few traders working away, somethings just catch your eye!

Not sure if this will taste any better;




Or this?

Just be thankful that the Met havent tried this yet!


I know its Russian and training but what happened to the bloke with the stick at 14 seconds?

Officialdom gone mad


Or just some jumped up pr1ck of a traffic warden?

An update on the clays

A quick update, sunday I collected my 3rd place trophy for division D in the 100 bird comp but had I been in Div C I would have taken second place! Never mind, Ben managed an utterly dismal 8 out of 50 whilst I took 40 out of 50 so I may get into div C at this rate.
That said its all down to changing guns from playing around with a 28 and a 20 bore Beretta 686 to going back to an AYA Yeoman in 12 bore!

E Bay?

Go on you know it makes sense;

Attention Teenage Drug Dealers/Low Life & Oxygen Thieves

If you think you've saved enough benefit from your 4 children before your 20, this could be the answer to your prayers.

A proper bastardised, chaved up Skippy mobile if ever there was. Enhance your street cred at the local drive thru burger joint or council estate shop front no end with this utterly tacky converted little Renault Clio. Not your Gran's idea of a lift to town, granted, but a fantastic opportunity to increase 3 fold your class A drug selling ability. This is the car you need boys. The punters will flock to the window for your home grown skunk and other illegal substances. you just ain't gonna look out of place in this little beauty! Now I've made sure the tax ran out last November, so there is a big pat on your scrawny little backs already.

Dig out yer favourite unwashed "Umbro" hoodie and come cast your shifty little eyes on this. Ideal for the "Street Pharmacist" and other suitably attired twats. Your gonna need a baseball cap with this beauty, ideally one that comes with no fitting instructions. Heaven forbid you should put it on the right way. What better way to compliment your stolen Nike Air Max trainers than to be seen dangling a foot outta this pocket rocket.
Worried about the Babylon spotting ya, no need. Car comes fully equipped with proper blacked out gangster glass on the side windows. Hell, you could even fill the back up with yer ugly chav kids and knowone'd see 'em. doesn't get much better boys. Ah, but it does. It does. To show your complete and utter lack of taste and knowledge of the motor car you'll also find the ridiculous rock hard lowered suspension to your taste as well. Why not get a step closer to Gran's inheritance by offering her a lift in ya new "wheels" then taking her down the post Office flat out over the speed humps round your estate and hopefully knocking the spine out of her? Might need 2 laps but god damn them single teenage mums smoking Marlboro Lights outside the chippy will be impressed fella's. You know that they like a ride like this. Turn up the Alpine Head Unit, stick in your favourite and incomprehensible "Drum & Bass" Cd and the throbbing out the 6x9 parcel shelf will have them pregnant in no time.

To complete the proper drug dealer look, a tasteless stripe has been fitted from the front to the rear. Finished in "Air Max" white it really doesn't complement the car in any shape or form. Rather like you and your Brethren spitting on the floor constantly. Completely needless but you think it makes a statement about you. You'll also enjoy the totally pointless but ridiculously noisy after market air filter. About as helpful as a fart in an astronaut suit, but hell, you didn't get where you are today by being helpful, did you?
I'm quite sad to see the thing go really. There is nothing more pleasurable to me at 41 than to drive round in this bit of shit and look a complete prick. I'd much rather hand the opportunity to you work shy crack head council tenants any day. This little set of wheels is gonna let the other hoodies know you've made it. cocaine and skunk selling is never gonna get any easier for the lucky buyer of this car. I might have a deal on a couple of gram's of smack or coke, but ideally I'd need to get a serious drug habit before hand. Perhaps someone could help? You can pay in cash or wraps, I'm easy really. Bring along your mums credit card or one that your mate has cloned down the petrol station. If it is going to be hard cash, please ensure it is discretely hidden in a used Tesco carrier bag, and you have folded one £20 note around 4 others. Makes counting so much easier.

For any female buyer I'm offering a free Tatoo of something utterly meaninless to go in the middle of your lower back. If you haven't already got your "Tramp Stamp" that is.

If your an under-age drink driver, or under-age driver for that matter, this little beauty really isn't going to attract the attention of the local constabulary at all. you'll drift pass any patrol car effortlessly. Make sure there is at least 6 of you in the car though, Splif in hand. If your driving, have another swig from your 2 litre plastic "LIDL" brand cider as you nonchalantly flip the bird to the passing police patrol. Head off for the nearest estate for some tyre screeching fun. They ain't never gonna take you alive in this.

The car does like a good rev in the morning at any unsocial hour. Neighbours will love it and feel proud to live in the same road. don't forget to rev the pants off of it at all junctions and roundabouts as well. This really will increase the length of your manhood no end. your virginity is gonna be a thing of the past when the babes see you in this "fanny magnet". You can almost bet your last eighth of puff your gonna get laid. Hell, might even get a few STD's as well. your gonna get a proper bird with this motor.

For the disqualified driver I'll even offer to recover it from outside the local Magistrates or police station. What better way to impress the local Judicial system in one final act of defiance before collecting your ASBO?

Don't let the frivolous matter of actually holding a current, valid drivers licence and insurance put you off this bargain. A visit to your local crack house should procure some documentation from as little as fifty quid.

Nuff said, innit.

PAGE VIEWS IS NOW 31,340 !!

I didn't do this for the publicity or feedback. It just seemed to fit the car. REALLY BIG thanks to ALL who have viewed and sent questions. Not long now before the e bay police remove it!!!

A quick go at zeroing

Chris picked up this nice M94 Swedish Mauser Cavalry Carbine this month. Nice looker but one or two things arent quite right. The front sling band is upside down (easy enough) and the bore is in dire need of some TLC.


The first shots at 50 yards wouldnt even show on an A4 sheet so we walked up really close. The first round seemed to tumble but then the other 4 rounds printed really nice and tight.

Chris couldnt see the front sight blade, it isnt easy even with my good eyesight but his shots at about 25 yards were rather ragged and loose. I'm not sure if he will be able to shoot this in competition. I'm not sure if the barrel and sights will be of use to this chap apart from with cast lead loads at 30 yards.

Soft focus?

So the hunt for Red October is over? Well at least the cords are still here!
Add Video On the way to a meeting the celebrated cords were seen on london Bridge, after the meeting something seemed to cause my vision to blur a little

Hence the soft focus eh? On call for a week so nothing of interest to drink, it may make the shooting a bit steadier!

Paddy's day

Also my big brothers birthday, he is on what I would describe as the downhill stretch now being officially over the halfway mark to 90! HAHAHAHA!
Still little things do lighten up my day!
The local rag decided to run a headline about the BNP being barred from local election debates despite fielding a candidate, whilst googling it I came across this chaps remarkably well balanced views!
Dont get me wrong, in fact dont get me, I personally couldnt care less who ran the country, I cant abide the smug tofu munching Guardianista champagne socialists that are currently ruining this sceptic isle any more than I trust call me dave but if organisations like the BNP are getting candidates in Eastbourne then someone needs to sit up and listen!

A hung Parliament?

That it seems may be all we need, well I for one know of a place to sort this out

A little more to see

One for the range perhaps or something for the weekend?
Now this is what Parliament should face!
Say no more;


More display at the lecture


Nice MH;



A very well engraved Astra pistol, not to my taste but a nice piece in .25, part of the preamble.

Monkeytail pistol by Westley Richards



Callisher and Terry?



Found on a pub wall, well would you believe it?




Part of the display as laid out on the table in front of the lecturer.











Another great evening out

The watering hole, although not for long at the prices they charge and the beer keeps running out!
I thought the name was apt though!
A little later and off I toddle to use the facilities.
Always something worth seeing!
More to follow

A good weekend and that Doe at last

To get the cull finished off we needed to thin out the does in one wood by at least 1. We achieved it, I would have preferred to take 3 but things dont always pan out. Luckily it coincided with the final part of the training for 2 students.

A very well taken shot at an awkward angle resulting in a short follow up!


Thursday, 11 March 2010

Well I didnt go here last night

Just the odd drop of ale to be had, managed to get in early before it was packed out by the suits!


Subsequently I am a tad fragile!

Crufts 2010

Despite winning two 4th places and a 3rd last year at our first attendance we have decided not to go this year
It isnt the anti working dog bias displayed by the judges or the snobbish attitude of the show competitors, the gamesmanship displayed by some alleged keepers and the dogs which patently have never worked for a minute of their pampered lives, it isnt perhaps the ignorance of the show visitors or the traders but the attitude of the kennel club and the idea warped as it seemed that we were exhibits and had to remain till close regardless of the fact that our event ended at 10 am!

Moral dilemma?

This is a real tough one!!
This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.
The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision.
Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.
Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.
THE SITUATION:
You are in London There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.
This is a flood of biblical proportions.
You are a photo-journalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.
The situation is nearly hopeless.
You're trying to shoot career-making photos.
There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing into the water.
Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
THE TEST:
Suddenly, you see a man in the water.
He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris.
You move closer... Somehow, the man looks familiar...
You suddenly realise who it is............................................................. ...................
It's Muslim Cleric Abu Hamza (the hook handed bastard) You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.
You have two options:
You can save the life of Abu or you can shoot a dramatic Prize winning photo,documenting the death of one of the country's most despised, evil and powerful men!

THE QUESTION:
Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...
Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

Cody as promised

As I said earlier we are now the happy owners? Owners maybe isnt the right word but Cody has come to live with us;


Pretty little thing isnt she? Well Cody will be covered this year and either a litter of pedigree working cockers or unregistered sprockers should be produced.

Its all gone to the dogs!

As per usual the Govt has got it wrong again. This ill thought out vote winner will only affect those law abiding folk who will pay the increased insurance.
Defra tried to impose regs last year and luckily the NGO got them changed. Owning as many dogs as I do for work and knowing that mine wont attack people or other dogs unless severely provoked.
Well should the unlucky prospective candidate approach my house I will see if he or she can outrun a pack of spaniels!

A busy old weekend

Wednesday evening I caught up with some trophy preparation;

Thursday melted into Friday which itself was 30 hours long, I slumped off home to enjoy my bed at last. Saturday saw the arrival of Cody our new Cocker bitch, at the moment she is a real treat. Pics to follow. I thought I would fill saturday with humorous postings but I filled it with snoring in front of the TV instead!

So here are some starting with a Darwin candidate;


Possibly another although this one is an advert;


The story of my life:



Sunday was spent mainly in the woods, I visited early to check we had deer for later, went home for a 100 bird competition and then out again for a stalk. Clays, well I managed to break 60 so I am happy!


The woods were very chilly and looked very pretty this time of year;

The deer were walking with the wind blowing onto their backs and straight for us;



Sadly I think the lead doe was just too close to be hit if you know what I mean. I should have shot the back one but was absolutely mesmerised by the mexican standoff about to unfold.

The 2nd British Shooting Show Newark 2010

The year has started, earlier than normal for us but as long as we cover our costs we can generate more business by meeting punters from the north of the country even if they all want a discount and a bargain!

Of course we managed to find the first pair of red cords of the season, just one pair a day though;
The Tea ladies stand did great business between 11 and 3 and thanks to Richard and Daughter Alex who kept us sane and really did help out.
We made the classic error of taking stock for a 6 metre stand and only renting a 3 metre one. Another lesson learnt then!
The stand although small certainly looked ok, I decided not to set up the TV display as I had been a numpty and left the dvd behind! Yet another lesson there!
On the way home we passed these on on of our many detours, any ideas?Ok here it is.


Meanwhile back to the mad dogs and a scene that the dog transport boys at Newark didnt believe possible.

Glad to be back.
