    Her name is Pip, not a very original name (our last dog was called Moose!) but she is a real character and great with our baby and 9yo son. She is taking to training really well as long as she knows that I have a pocket full of dog biscuits. Pip is...

    We got our new family dog a couple of months ago and the proper training has started. She is a cross between a German Wirehaired Pointer and a Black Labrador and both parents are good working dogs. Only problem is, because of her parents,...

    Congratulations retread, I hope you enjoy your new rifle. I had a 1944 Longbranch No.4 that I sold a couple of years ago to fund another rifle-regret it to this day! Must start saving my pennies for another Enfield but it will probably be an SMLE...

    Lovely rifle to own and shoot, this one was my first firearm and I will hopefully hand it down to one of my sons (eventually!). Mine is an all Birmingham made Parker Hale with a serial # in the high 700's. The Martini on the next table is mine...

    Thanks Artful, The link worked straight away from my pc at work when I posted it! Maybe it won't play on your side of the pond because it's a ploy by our guberment to stop any leaks of sensitive military technology:shock: .

    Here is my wife shooting off her first ever hand-loads in .308 @ 600 yards. In her own words "shooting a proper rifle" - I think I have to agree! The little-un about to have a lesson in rabbit prep. "from garden to table" This was on...
