Re: Pocket Hammer Pro arrow slingshot

You misunderstood me! There was no problem with your link being American.I was just pointing out that us Brits have our own way of doing things. Really , if you have things to share,then do so. It just has to be legal.

Re: Pocket Hammer Pro arrow slingshot

We have strict moderation, true. That’s why this forum is still here. Your link above is American. As this is UK Preppers, here is the BRITISH way of catapult hunting. Note that I do not say “slingshot”. These are a bunch of good lads I met at the Gamefair about five years ago. What is shown is pret...

Re: Pocket Hammer Pro arrow slingshot

You pretty much answered your own question.Hunting game in the UK with arrows has been illegal since 1981 ( Wildlife and countryside act).Hunting small game with a catapult and ball ammunition is not though,providing the user is a competent shot. As someone who does hunt with a catapult ( milbro for...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

I really struggle with this. I'm very much a minimalist and I really hate clutter :evil: I cannot bear loads of old broken "stuff" cluttering up the house or sheds, and too many seriously full cupboards can make me twitchy. So in a compromise, I stash mainly things that are multi-purpose and I don'...

Re: Brexit in October?

The whole of parliament should be sacked.They need to be in the real world and do productive jobs instead of being paid stupid money from my hard earned wages to talk boll###s.Northern Ireland is being run by civil servants,and in the background,so are we,so nobody will miss the parasites.The sun wi...

Fair enough. It’s a shame he is not ‘ on board’ as it were. Sadly, it doesn’t take Brexit or War or... pick your scenario. In my case it takes my dear wife’s cancer, ( she gets paid, I do not) to realise that a pantry full of grub is valuable when there is an income loss.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Shelves are your friend! I don’t ( obviously) know the layout of your house. Do you have a spare room or outbuildings? We are fortunate to have a walk- in pantry, which for two of us , easily holds a couple of months worth of preserved grub. I dry lined a brick outbuilding many years ago with three ...

Re: Where do you grow your peppers?

I got in touch with PG about their teabags. I was assured that they were replacing plastic ' formers' with corn starch. This year. I see no indication of that on the packaging,( if I were them ,I would be shouting from the rooftops).I am going to ask again...
