    Air rifle to FAC power?

    Sometimes you have to be prepared to travel for things you really want. I converted a TTR1 Rapid to FAC, which is simple by comparison, and have virtually destroyed the value in doing so. I didn't realise at the time, if I'd known I would have sold as is and bought a dedicated, factory regulated FAC rifle of a different make. I still love it, wouldn't part with it, but could have done a lot better for the money. There are loads of FAC rifles on guntrader for instance, and the BBS (just join)

    Honestly, sell it and buy something else FAC if that's what you want/need.

    Pigeon licence now added .

    It's useless, like the crow licence it isn't fit for purpose. Effectively a well worded trap for shooters, perfect for any anti that wishes to call the Police when they hear or see shooting. 'crack on' at your own risk.

    Aye useless. Read through this before cracking on. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/798009/wml-gu01-legal-methods.pdf

    Get your Crow License here....

    Gove, Packham, Avery, Spain & Juniper. What a rosy, cosy relationship. As highlighted already, by Fieldsports Britain. To be fair my MP has been quite responsive, forwarding the correspondence from Gove as it arrives, hot off the press. Completely useless of course, but then he is a Tory and a Sir...

    Not Packham, but his RSPB buddies Spain & Juniper. How is this licensing issue a matter for NE? Surely it should be DEFRA that manages the control of pest species.

    The only licence issued so far is about as useful as tits on a bull.

    KRG /TRG adaptor for TYPE B (versapod) bipod

    May I recommend a small application called dashlane? Stores all your passwords, creates secure passwords, audits your passwords, informs you when they may have been breached and syncs across all devices.

    Well all sorted, turns out he'd lost his phone, that explains that then!

    That's what I thought.

    Doesn't answer emails (although, in his defence, I think he could be in the unenviable position of being in Las Vegas at present (shot show))?

    Which quad sticks

    The studs I use for the base are half screw, half m6 thread (I don't know what they're called). Washers at the top are essential, they prevent premature wear and provide a rubbing surface for the poles. The webbing can be hand sewn, you'll want a thimble as you need to press quite hard to get the needle though and invariably it pops through and then stabs your fingers otherwise. When you get the poles there is plastic in either end. Leave this in, the top of your poles will be the pointy end, just cut some of the point off to create a more rounded end, the bottom cut flush and square and pilot drill to accept the stud screw thread. Use a washer to sandwich the belt. If you're a short arse you'll have to cut the poles down. Cut the top and buy some blanking plugs to cap the end and make a soft surface for the webbing. The belt: Google 'Balata Flat Drive Belting'

    Which quad sticks

    Bear in mind these are three years old, left out in all weather, well used... The hinged foot, uses traction belt to provide a flexible, long lasting hinge. Leave one stud long to create a pin for extra grip. The washers were shaped around a bar, then treated with cold blue to prevent rust (small outer washer wasn't). Nuts are stainless nyloc. Webbing from an old kitbag stitched to create two slip over cradles. This means you can pan the rifle and the sticks are ambi. Simple string and webbing loop means you can slide the webbing up/down to set the gap for whichever rifle you're using. This is a photo of the sticks, unsupported but with the peg pushed into the ground.
