    drones and drugs

    The guards likely prefer them getting it that way than the 'traditional' way which means the guards don't have to have a game of 'brown trout fishing'

    Crime and Punishment in the snowflake age

    No, far worse would and as the attackers were male and victim female, SHE would likely be punished for not getting out of the way their flour! Properly administer corporal punishment, preferably done in public, is the only way i can see the declining behaviour of youths (and adults who still haven't grown out of such behaviours)being brought under control. Crying your eyes out while being birched in front of your vicitms and their families/the rest of the town is likely to bring a 'gangsta' attitude to heal pretty rapidly.

    Knife carry while shooting

    I always carry a knife, apart from if i'm out on the town/for a meal etc. Always go for UK 'legal' ones. Have a Boker Plus Worldwide most of the time when shooting, or a Lansky World Legal, both heavy duty blades and the super strong mechanism gives reassurance that it wouldn't close accidentally. For work i have a Klecker Cordovan as its much lighter and more 'pen knife' like (make sure you get the non-locking version).
  4. Well the discussions have begun and already they're talking about things that weren't even mentioned up until now, namely making ALL ammunition components licesable i.e. You will need to have components - primers, cases and bullets on your certificate, have to show your certificate to buy powder AND store them all, even if separate in a safe. Still think this isn't going to affect you?
  5. Whatever this bill does or doesn't cover NOW is irrelevant. If this legislation passes it will be catestrophic for the entire shooting community, including the 'i'm-alright-jacks' who will be anything but. The vast majority of firearms legislation in this c9ountry has been a response to one-off events which gave credence that the type of firearm concerns was a 'problem'. THIS legislation is solely based on 'what if' a criminal/terrorist uses a particular type of gun and will set a precedent that cannot be undone. If it goes through the police/government can then just pick and chose gun types at will using the excuse that "they have intelligence" that terrorists want to obtain 'xyz' gun so we're going to ban it just in case....

    Ms Abbott in the news again

    Someone asked her if she was going for a number 1 or number 2 and what followed was the confusion of her brain trying to process those numbers

    alcohol & gun license

    If you are dependent on alcohol you are deemed to be unfit to be in possession of firearms. If you contact your GP about the problem they will inform the police and they will, at least, remove any firearms from your property, but likely revoke your certificates. IMO its much better to leap before you're pushed and i would dispose of any and all guns you have until you are confidently over the problem. I would also think of handing in the certificate(s) after you have disposed of the guns, preferably before the FLD gets informed by your GP. IMO it will make reapplying for them a LOT easier than having a revocation on your record. If you have shooting mates that can take the guns, excellent, if not you'll need to sell them or put them in long term storage with an RFD (could be quite costly). I am currently holding a shotgun for someone in a similar situation, but he said some stupid things to his wife (suicide threat), who then informed the police. His certs were immediately revoked and if i'm being really honest, i doubt he's going to get them back now because of that. Well done for confronting the problem and i wish you luck in beating it

    Pastrami, do you like it?

    I liked it in the US but it was totally different to here. Tastes like someone has got very thinly sliced beef and wiped out a pot pourri bowl with it!

    Adler A110

    Meh, don’t really see the point of S2 lever/semi/pumps, plus I’d only really have a use for it for practical shotgun and as you don’t have to obey the 24” barrel length restriction on a lever action I’d be looking to get a shorter barrel or have it chopped, 14-16” would be awesome!

    Adler A110

    Have a look on Youtube, there are tons of Aussie videos on them as they're the best they can get over there. I've had a slot for one on my ticket for donkeys but never took the plunge as there's always been something else come along. If my MARS rifle does eventually get banned i'll definitely be buying one with the compo (assuming i get any!). Also heard rumours of a shot-stroke kit out for them wihich would really be a bonus, just don't understand how it would work as they don't have a linkage type lever like a MArlin/Winchester, its just a huge semi-circle that literally pulls and pushs the bolt?!
  12. A few years back i had a rifle on order with them that was "definitely going to be in next week", for 4.5 months. In the end i just stopped contacting them and got in touch with the Austrian factory direct to get a realistic delivery date. I've got no idea why some places do that, rather than just giving you an honest answer of "we don't know" or "at least a few months"

    Extreme cold weather gun oil

    I use a similar all-in-one job, Napier Gun Cleaner. I shot a practical shotgun competition with it in Scotland in March and the temperature never got above -3oC. The gun (and me) were outside for 9hrs and had over 200 cartridges through it with no issues.

    Gun cabinet problems

    What is beyond the plasterboard? If you can't cut a hole in the plasterboard to get to the solid wall (like literally the outline of the cabinet and have it partially inside the wall), there are fixings such as Rigi-fix which bridge the gap between the plasterboard and solid wall with a steel shank. The biggest ones are rated for a 280kg load each.
