  1. BBC1 Scotland - The Dog Factory

    Rarely have I been so upset and tempted to kick my own TV in anger. My contempt for the prospective owner's stupidity was bad enough but when I saw the graphic images of the dogs sufferring..... sickening. No doubt available on i-player but it's far from easy viewing.
  2. advice please......dog seizures

    Folks, I need a bit of advice. My father's 6yr old lab had a full on seizure yesterday. Perfectly healthy dog until now; first time ever. It was a full on, on its side with paws paddling in air seizure. It immediately empties its bowels, froths at the mouth and paces up and down relentlessly...
  3. Wilson dies...... Advice please.

    I was chatting with a dealer about Wilson dies after reading a few articles and had intended to purchase some in caliber 308 and 25-06. I had assumed that it would be an easy process but the dealer knew less than me and even after returning that he couldn't work out what I needed, which bushings...

  5. Failing hips and joints..........advice please

    Folks, Some advice please. We took a rescue bitch in some years ago. She'd had an awful start to life; starved and badly beaten.

  8. Basic gunsmithing advice please

    This is the second occasion in which I've entrusted my rifle to a supposed competent gunsmith, paid my hard earned money and been let down. A threading job that's a right bloody mess and on a fluted barrel to so can't just be chopped and started again. I'll sort it with him but I swear that this...

  10. 8x30 or 8x32 Binoculars...who uses them - opinions

  11. Hassle free case cleaning ...........

    I've long since moved on from tumblers to ultrasonic cleaners and dumped expensive cleaners in favour of cheap 'own brand' cola. Now the wife commented that some old biddy on a TV show had used the same cheap cola to clean her toilet and i wondered how effective the cola alone would be cleaning...

    Not really sure what he's trying to prove (or disprove), but he's obviously got more money than sense. Try hard enough to break one and you can - just ask my mate who backed his car over his new rifle and scope. It does make me wonder why i wince when i knock mine against the edge of the gun...

  15. I must be getting old..........

    A dealer friend offered me a mint rifle re-barreled in 6.5x47 lapua for a very good price. Essentially someone had ordered the rifle but was now experiencing financial problems. However i heard someone say that they were fed-up with 'these new fangled calibres' and realised that it was me...

    Theres a small plantation 5 minutes walk away from my front door. It's less than 100 acres in size but is hanging in deer. A substantial part of it has wind fallen trees, is badly overgrown and 4 deer have been hit by cars travelling to and from it this year. The fence around the plantation is...
