  1. A friend of mine has a Cz 452 sillouette in .22 and the stock is cracked does anyone know a place to get a replacement reasonably cheap as the gun isn’t worth a lot and he doesn’t want to spend a load of money on the gun cheers Andy

  6. Well done on the pass,I have got my dsc1 this month...Did you read the book cover to cover a few times or did you just take in over the lectures,I am the same as you when it comes to revising for stuff ha ha...Ive been out popping a few targets to sharpen up my shooting skills so hopefully i will be ok with that side of the course,its the amount of info in the book that needs to be remembered that has got me worried ha ha
  7. Looks like you had a great time ,is it your permission or were they paid stalks,if so what were the prices if you dont mind me asking
  8. Anyone a member cos my mate is wanting me to try this out so that we be able to try out a few different locations,or is it not worth the bother
  9. Very nice,where do you do your stalking mate,are you in a syndicate or paid stalks
  10. I am gonna do a 1 for 1 variation on my ticket from a 223 to a 308 for stalking deer next year,so can anyone recomend me a 308 for between a budget of about £700/£1000... The cheaper the better as i want to put a moderator on it,I already have the scope off my 223 so its just the gun i am after.....So whats the best out there for that price not fussed if its second hand as long as its in good nick ..... Cheers in advance Andy

    Advice on 308 purchase

    well the 223 i am trading in is a tikka t3 lite in stainless and laminated stock and i must admit i do like the gun . . But i do like to try new things but if thats the best option out there it could be another tikka
  12. I have just recived a variation on my ticket so i am on the hunt for a .17. I was looking at a Ruger and also a CZ....But you cant beat personal experience Cheers for any replies Andy

    Barnaul Rounds

    Has anyone used barnaul rounds before and possibly tell me your opinions on them...The rounds my local gun club have in are 55g fmj they will be used in a tikka t3 lite...I can get them for 15 quid a 100

    Barnaul Rounds

    I have always wondered about no good for live quarry...I think the FMJ was produced under the geneva convention but at the end of the day if i was hit by a 5.56 FMJ the chances are i would not survive if the shot was placed where i wanted it................I doubt mant shots are through and through...........by the way i have never used FMJ's on live quarry before anyone starts

    Exciting news

    Thats what was on my certificate from day one i couldnt believe it when i was issued an open cert from day one.....

    Exciting news

    Cograts on the open ticket,what is the actual wording on your cert to say that your ticket is open.....I only ask this because when i got my first cert i rang up the Firearms Dept to ask about an open ticket and they told me i had been granted one on my first application.....When i re-newed my cert recently i asked the FLO about it and he said that it is unusual to get an open ticket on your first application and that the restriction is normally lifted upon your first renewal. I dont know if this varies from police force to another but its just what my FLO told me....There seem to be a lot of confusion about this even amongst the Flo's so i was just wondering how it was actually worded on your ticket..... Regards Andy
  17. I am new to this site and i have no experience in the stalking and culling of deer.....Right if i was wanting to get into stalking is it easily available and what are the costs...........I have been shooting for many years but mainly do it on my own or occasionally with a friend but working away restricts my shooting to a minimum but i would like to try and get into stalking Now for my main questions i have just read this thread http://ukvarminting.com/forums/index.php?s...c=3049&st=0 Now bear in mind i have no knowledge of deer stalking etc and i got more confused the more i read this thread,can someone explain do you need to have the dsc level 1 and 2 to go out and shoot deer are these qualifications required by law? Can i apply for a variation on my ticket for a larger cal rifle even though i dont have land with deer on it but i was planning on going on an arranged deer stalk? Seems like it might be a bit of a closed shop where this stalking is concerned.....If i have made no sense i have just finished 13hrs nightshift so i can be excused Regards Andy

    I am left handed but all my rifles ar right handed i recentlytried shooting a left handed bolt action gun and and found it very difficult as i have only ever fired right handed rifles probably due to cost and availability i suppose Andy
  19. Thanks for all the replies you have cleared up a lot of my questions.I am based in Sunderland ,I spoke to my mate who i shoot with yesterday he is involved in forrestry work, and he might be getting access to some stalking, favour for a favour if you know what i mean,so with a bit of luck we might get a couple of trips out with this gamekeeper
