  1. I'm confused by the range available. I thought I wanted a Ledray F900 with interchangable pills but I'm now working my way through the Ludicrous Lumens website and am having second thoughts. Rifles are a .22 452 and .17 455. The torch I've been using for the last few years (Ledray) was fine at air rifle ranges (distances, not plinking) but since moving to rimfire at the start of this year it's just not up to the task. Any suggestions? Thanks/

    Foxes. What do you do with them?

    Rabbits, food for people or animals (pets or scavengers) I suppose. Leave them out and they are gone in no time at all. Foxes though, what do you do with them? And while we're about it, are foxes really a pest? I know they can be a danger to lambs, chickens and game birds but they also keep the rabbits down, no? According to this article (okay, it's the BBC) they do some good. http://www.discoverwildlife.com/british-wildlife/do-we-really-need-control-foxes-uk

    Nice. Very nice. Got any recipes for stoats?
  4. I have a CZ 452 .22 on which the trigger is somewhat....agricultural (yes, I know it's a budget rifle but even so). Which trigger kit would you recommend? TIA
  5. OSOK. I’m not sure either, I suppose I could strip both down and take a look (unless anyone can volunteer the answer?). One or two ads describe it as being “... suitable for 455s from serial #A956497...” so probably not. As I said in my OP the triggers on my 452 and 455 are worlds apart which suggests they might be rather different. les. The Rimfire Magic kit has been recommended to me a few times. I’ve looked at the website which says the kit is available “...from our website...” but they don’t seem to have an online shop. An old fashioned phone call should do the trick. I’ll also take your advice and break out the polishing kit. Thanks to both of you.

    I think the flies turn up later. 😊

    You missed his first post, before the edit. 😀

    (My bold) You sure about that? 😉
  9. Ludicrous Lumens was the site I had most trouble with. Half the components I wanted weren't in stock!

    .22 tracer rounds

    The obvious question (for me) is.....why? Setting aside the novelty factor what possible use might these have?

    .22 tracer rounds

    Cheating Gaining an advantage in target shooting? "No, I was doing really well before the card mysteriously burst into flames... oh well, I'll have to try again?" Oh yes, a bit of mischief wouldn't go amiss. Shooting someone else's target, even better. I get the fun bit but these surely remain novel for about ten rounds? On the other hand, the thunderflashes and smoke grenades I have in my ammunition safe.......
  12. I've (finally) ordered a Ledray F900. I like the idea of the interchangable pills rather than filters and to be honest I became frustrated with the websites for some other brands. Few seemed to be able to make it simple and just offer a complete kit. Instead the would-be purchaser has to click tabs for pills, batteries, switches and bodies. When I thought I finally had an order ready at least one component was out of stock, pretty frustrating. I hope to have it in the next couple of days, fingers crossed.

    Just wanted to say hello 👋

    I'm new here too and apparently I AM an anti. 😁

    Of course y'do......... 🙄
  15. Bit of a long shot (pun intended) does anyone know of a supplier for these? Lots up for sale on eBay and other sites but for some reason the only ones available are in unusual sizes such as XXL and Trump (small). I'd like to find some before the current pair wear out or, more likely, get lost. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Deerhunter-Shooting-Gloves-8337-Brown-Hunting-Shooting-Fishing/223055114202?hash=item33ef1eefda:m:mx3-MLB1wFiN0bL7O19F_mA

    I often wonder who had the bright idea of naming a meat alternative after a fox hunt. 😀 http://www.quorn-hunt.co.uk/

    1. If people try to infiltrate forums like this why would I want to tell them where I am? 2. If I were one of those "antsies" (sic) surely I'd just tell lies in my profile?

    Now that's clever. Almost as cunning as ummmmm, something. 😊

    Rabbits and .22

    I started on Eley subs but had the opportunity to buy a few hundred Winchesters cheap (I was in the US). The latter seem a bit wayward and louder than the Eleys. I may experiment with EWS or SKs but won't be buying any more Winchester.

    Thanks to those of you who gave sensible answers, much appreciated and apologies for the tardy reply. I've cleared all the rabbits from a new permission so eventually will have to start on the foxes which will be looking elsewhere for food. The nearest pheasant shoot is on adjoining land which means in the short term the foxes are someone else's problem but there'll be lambs on 'my' permission next Spring so now would be a good time to put in a variation and, if successful, get some practice. As for some of the others who replied, keep the tinfoil hats on boys. Next time I'm at the commune, sitting cross-legged in the yurt with Tamsin, and Swampy, sipping organic nettle tea, I'll table.........I mean carpet a motion that despite being murdering meat eaters you're pretty harmless. 😉
  21. Evening all. I've a SAK moderator on a CZ 452 using (depending upon which box I grab in the dark) either Eley Subs or Remington. At first I thought I was imagining things or it was coincidence that my first shot of the day was toward a hard backstop but I'm now convinced that the first shot always creates a loud crack, almost as loud as my HMR. Each shot thereafter is as quiet as you would expect. Any ideas?
  22. It might be the Remington ammunition. I'll make a note to use Eley next time I go out, see what happens.
  23. David. It's far from new! Looks as if it's been around the block a few times to be honest. I wondered if a baffle had perhaps come loose but had yet to check that. Then came TattooedGun's reply. Turns out it's a real thing. Thanks TG.
