Thank you but I'm nothing special at all. I've been nursing gout for two weeks again. Work was painful!Waiting for the next adventure from Britsmoothy! I love your stories Britsmoothy & your little side kick.
Well folks it didn't really happen!
Well my monday off work was spent a field but I got very little.
Two squirrels! I missed the woodcock and the only two pheasants that lifted perfectly for me was when I was on the phone to my wife , how many times has that happened but I never learn!
So I covered a few miles over six hours plus in the wind and rain for nothing really.
Here is the only photograph.

The rain soaked gun bathed in salts from the fouling soon bloomed with rust. I think some worry pots call it flash rusting!

I washed the barrels inside and out in warm water then poured a boiled kettle down them.
I yawned as I wiped the flash rust off the hot barrels, I contemplated how long I'll be dead before these barrels rot through from FLASH rust! I dried them out via a patch and heat and then lubricated the barrels inside and out and put it away. Simple.
Sorry it's a disappointment but it beats work and I would do it all again tomorrow if I could.
