New Revolver

Just bought a .22 Brno Grand model revolver and am eagerly awaiting its arrival, probably sometime this week.

Re: Lost key

Peter,

That's a great outcome, I believe that it is also possible to buy phone operated beepers to attach to things that might get misplaced.

There are leprechauns, I have one that causes me to misplace things (that's my excuse anyway!).

Eoin.

Re: Ross Mark III

Peter, They're a great military target rifle, many years ago when I first became an armourer I shot the annual range practice with a Ross that I then owned. I retained my Marksman rating and claim to be the only Australian serviceman to have done so with a Ross (at least post WWII), Being one of the...

Re: Lost key

Peter,

Have a look on top of the ammo safe, particularly towards the back; is there a gap at the back?

Failing all else, and as you say the cost of getting a locksmith in, might I suggest the angle grinder and a cutting disc?

Do you have leprechauns?

Re: Wearing shorts in winter.

In my younger days, until well into my fifties, I wore shorts summer and winter, as I usually walked to work (about 3 miles) and if it was raining, as it often was, long pants were a nuisance. I also wore leather Roman sandals which were particularly good for sloshing through mini-floods when the st...

Re: 58 caliber lead ball compared to alloy ball

Thanks for that, very interesting; I also read the one on building the rifle. Having acquired lots of roofing lead when the house next door was re-roofed and I don't hunt anything bigger than foxes and paper targets, pure lead does OK for me. I thought that the video had stopped, then WHAM!!, very i...
