No lead ban

 Liz Truss letter to John Swift: 

" we therefore do not accept your recommendation to ban the use of lead ammunition".

Read Liz Truss letter and more information on the Country Sports TV forum/lead shot forum. 



All my working life I've made Rifles and Shotguns, repaired they to keep they looking like the day they where made. BUT today I find myself destroying firearms to deactivate them so they can't be used. 

Under new EU firearms directive all deactivated guns need to be checked by the Proof House in Birmingham or London. In June this year [2018] they add extra work that needs to be done before the new Euro Certificate can be granted. All de-acted guns before this with old de-act certificates will need to have work done to them to bring them up to the new regulations.

So now I'm de-acting de-acts. its work but not what I should be going.

The Art Decoying, Pigeons and Corvids

By Ian Summerell  

 My Pigeon decoying book is available on Ebay  for  £12 Inc P&P. 

 ?Having now read and thoroughly digested your book I can see you have learnt that pigeons don't come to order and rather than being decoyed, in the main they can often manage to fool us. But I think I can safely say it is by far one of the best and most informative 'pigeon shooting manuals' ever produced, from now on THE ART OF DECOYING PIGEONS & CORVIDS by IAN SUMMERELL will be my first recommendation to any beginners who come my way and any 'experts' who ask me for advice.?
