Thread: Lost bag at Gamekeepers Fair.....

    Lost bag at Gamekeepers Fair.....

    Hi Folks

    made a really absent minded mistake today....

    We got back to our vehicle at the Gamekeepers fair and decided to let our little girl answer the call of nature down the side and out of view, I had my Barbour tarras bag on my shoulder which i took off and placed on th ground by the front wheel.....

    I put Isla in the car and forgot the bag was still on the ground, we then left and decided to stop about 50mins after leaving - it then suddenly dawned on me that the bag had been left...

    In the bag was my FAC/Shotgun licsence, 100 rounds of just purchased 17HMR, wallet contianing 160 and all credit cards, a Butler Creek scope cap cover and 4 venison burgers

    We drove back and not suprisingly the bag had gone, I spoke to a few officials/stewards and left my contact details. I also reported the loss to the Police (suprisingly there were no Police in attendance at the fair..)

    I don't suppose that anyone on here knows anyone who may have found a bag?

    I'd like to think that the vast majority of people who attend gamefairs & finding a bag in this situation would hand it in..., but there again sods law the undesirable also attend these events...

    Thanks Rob

    Hope that small percentage wasn't the one who picked up your bag mate, best look out the tin hat though for the flack, still time for someone to turn it in to you, as they will have your address, but not your contact details, so still time for a happy outcome.

    Looks like my worst fears have been realized in that my bag must have fallen into the hands of one of society's vermin elliment...

    The only thing i can now hope for is that bad luck decends onto the low life who is now spending my cash & using my bag!...

    Hope someone steps forward with it soon Rob,done the same a few years back at a gamefair dropped my wallet it was returned guy brought it round to my home as he did not want to risk posting it, I emptied all of the cash inside into his hand to which he refused until I pointed out the cash did not matter it was all the other crap and momentoes that i really wanted back,in the end he reluctantly took half.

    Blimey mate
    you might hav put yourself in quite a serious situation
    in more ways than one
    just hope it gets handed into the police or you get a knock on the door from the person that picked it up
    Plus i hope GMP hav more sympathy than west mids
    i once reported live rounds stolen from my motor just as a precaution
    as i had my motor broken into and could not really be sure if they had been taken, ( i had been out zeroing at the time it happened and talking 20 rounds only)
    not only did i get an ear bashing from hell over the phone from the officer i spoke to when reporting it, but they allso sent 3 officers to investigate the incident, their concern was not the car or what else was stolen .......just the live rounds
    luckily i had left them in my coat pocket and could produce them when being intereviewed at home,
    from all accounts they sent the 3 officers so they could seize all my firearms if needed aswell as arrest me under firearm charges
    they take this sort of sh*t pretty serious here
    another officer turned up the next day to discuss the the car break-in and give me a crime no
    just goes to show
    hope all goes well for you

    Yet it's OK for the armed Police to lose a bag containing several MP5's and some Clock Pistols PLUS the amminition for them just because it was warm and the twits wanted to side door open on their vehicle. Oh they put an advert in the local paper asking for the return of the bag and guns etc. Pointing out that is was an offence to keep them if found. Theft by finding.


    Lets hope you get some good news about the bag and your stuff.
