    I think you'd look good in the maimai in a green adidas tracksuit, zipped up to hide your gold chains from the ducks of course.

    And I am an honorary slav, not only do I trade pigeons with you and know the words to 'lipe cvatu' - I also married one

    So how do you shoot birds with an AK?

    2 mags duck taped against each-other, AK turned up to fully automatic blasting of the hip while holding a bottle of Rakija on the other hand....

    My shotgun is an escort pumpaction and are using this ammo from an Eley case.It is causing multiple ejections when pumped,my gun has been stripped and cleaned.My mate that shot with me this year has a brand new escort and it is doing the same.Anyone else having problems @kotuku you use an escort?

    Don't shoot anymore. Take them back to H and F for refund/replacement. They're recalling

    yeah dundee ,mine is the early escort magnum s/a with the 2 stage manual gas regulator.
    I did put five pkts of eley steel through it about 2yr ago .dirty bloody stuff but it certainly slowed up the ducks.recently doing an ammo stocktake found stillgot 6rds left -theyre in line for a gooses arse very shortly.
    3"jobbies are a tad heavy for ducks as the gadgetman will remember when i euthanised a woundy mallard hen from 6'range here on the coast .
    Gadget ,very laconic -"shot two bringing home 1 1/2"-she was dead breasted and gutted in one loud bang.
    This sounds bloody strange though so as H&F explain return em and see what the outcome is. for all you chch guys -Barry foster -stihl shop in blenhiem rd-Barry stocks the Hull pommy 12g steel game ammo and lead trap ammo
    .excellent stuff -my pet goose load solway magnum 3"34gm steel 3s-dem gooses just falls outta da sky when the load gets unloaded up their arses. My escort was bloody finnicky cycling with standard trap loads till I got onto Barrys DTL100&300 loads -oh hell yes the old girl loves em like a lab loves its tucker and i now use one as the initial det load to cycle the action which happily deposits the std trapload in the chamber as a followup.

    I have two pump escorts one has 2010 on the box maybe its wear as I took gun and ammo into H&F and it did it with all brands.I don't know if the other escort is the newer of the two.It had another good clean in the shop. Tried some gamebore at lunch time from sons ute that worked fine.

    I know when I first met GSP follower who taught me gooseshooting, he used an escort 20g pump,and to my best recollection he didnt have any (or many )problems. He did have a malicious smile on the dial though when he got to trade it on a very tidy wee remington 20g P/A(a miserly $75 plus guns changed hands -tinass) and remains very fond of casting aspersions on my beloved escort likewise my beloved crusaders(hurricanes supporter you know -we understand!!!!)
    maybe as youve demonstrated rest no1 (as a last choice reserve)and use the other as your no1 gun.actually a thought if second cant be repaired set it aside to recycle as a source of spares.money saved for lion brown and barrels of watties plus Seans super dooper custom long range rifle rig for possums at 1.5km.
    oops apologies sean for lettin the possum outta da bag.
    actually the thing i like about the escort is its simplicity ,and when i was on the"""""OTHER""""" site i got a carton of spares for $20.00 so what repairs ive done is a very easy swap jobbie in the garage.actually in all honesty the old girl has tolerated my use sand abuse bloody well and she still remains my 1st choice heavy artillery go to shotty.
    would i have another escort -in a heartbeat.plain jane -dont mind shit and dust simple to strip and maintain.
    hey cheers guys and happy shooting.

    Since I've got back in to shotgunning, I've only used Eley Hyperspeed VIP - talked in to buying a slab by our friends at H&F Not had any problems yet. Eley Hyperspeed VIP and Lightning are different products as far as I know. Happy to be corrected though.

    actually ELEY and RIO ammo components are produced in one factory in spain.rio is assembled in that factory and exported whereas ELEYcomponents are exported to the UKand assembled there for export.bloody grubby in my shooty but hells bells it was bloody deadly -the majority of game ihit with those rounds never saw another dawn.-also a high percentage were one shot kills ,in comparison with my so called normal averages.

    Pulled both of the original boxes out and only one has 2010 date on it so i'm picking the one with the troubles is older than 2010.Bloody good innings for a shotty.Still taking it out tonight if it jams with a mag full,nothing wrong with just using two shots.

    Only fired two shots tonight into the deep sky at two passing swans that were a mile high,no chance of hurting them but the gun went fine tonight,and emptying the mag with pump had no fail either. Guns are like woman sometimes they good sometimes they bad

    the problem I had with the recycled Turkish bicycle pump was the bloody action would open on its own or at least on the merest touch of the slide release.
    ive always had Remington 870.s and am yet to wear anything out on any of them.
    current 20 gauge was 3 years old when I got it and you can add another 4 on that now still works as aDVERTISED.
