Re: I'm Still Here

I fired some 6.5 Japanese through my Type 38 long rifle on Sunday with the cases made with your die from .243 Winchester. I resized and primed them today ready for reloading. Good to hear from you again.
Regards
Peter.

Re: So there is a new British leader

I have a friend who is in the same situation as Duncan, except he has retired to Cyprus. He has concerns over Brexit. From my point of view, I hope we have a clean break but maintain a friendly relationship with the EU. As regard to Boris, give him a chance to see how he performs. i watched Jacob Re...

Re: Fifty years anniversary of the manned moon landing

I remember the moon landing. I was 18 years old and serving in the RAF at RAF Conningsby. I watched what I could on the television in the NAAFI.

Re: Lost key

One key makes me nervous also. I have made a note of the key number and can also now remember it. If I lose it again I can go to the safe maker, Chubb, and order a new key. Hopefully I won’t lose it again as I am being extra careful to put it in the right place.
Regards
Peter.

Tonight I was putting a small bag of screws next to some others on the window cill of the room where the cabinet is. There was some loose sandpaper sheets and a couple of packs of sandpape...

Lost key

I keep my cabinet keys in a small safe. Last Thursday I needed to get into an ammo cabinet so took the key from the key cabinet and unlocked it and locked it when I was done. On Saturday I needed to get in the ammo cabinet again so went to the key safe for the key. However, the key was not in the ke...

Ross Mark III

Hello I have just bought a Ross rifle. It has had a life as there are wood repairs to the heel and toe of the butt and also behind the action. The front sight is missing the hood but has a few screws added. The bolt has a different number to the barrel but still has a PLY prefix. It does shoot very ...

Wearing shorts in winter.

Over recent years it has become more common to see men walking around wearing shorts no matter how cold it is. I think it started as a bet between two postmen as to who would stop wearing shorts first as winter approached. They carried on all through winter wearing shorts. My local postman is often ...

Re: More UK firearm restrictions

Well, the ban on .50 Calibre rifles has been dropped from the bill going through parliament for further consultations so they are safe for now. The MARS and lever release rifles are, however, going to be banned and will be collected from the legal owners and destroyed. Compensation will be paid. Due...
