  1. I do exactly same as Ultrastu with zip lock bag. Plenty say lube don’t work it certainly don’t harm and stops the oxidation of the lead. I use LT1 and it’s a good product.
  2. My dream car as a child in the 1970’s was the Masseratti Bora that I had a large matchbox toy of. Not a great car in todays world but I liked it. Got to buy what you want and just enjoy it. You’re paying for it and to hell with what others think.
  3. EddOakley, My wife and I looked at a used one a few years ago when we changed her car as she liked the Porsche Macan and this is similar. only looked due to a fella my dad done business with for years having had two one after the other and saying it’s the best 4x4 car he’s had. He had fully specked up range rovers among other leading luxury brands. Have to say it didn’t look much up close and not as premium as I’d have thought. don’t think reliability is as bad as years ago with Maserati. Figgy
  4. Bit out of the blue. Great actor but not seen anything of his for a long time. rip
  5. If I found a very accurate slug in sub12, I would use for vermin as not too many shots. for plinking and range gun pellets every time.
  6. With much better bc the slugs even at 10.8 will lose little energy at distance compared to pellets. For long range if accurate I’d use them. I can’t find any that work in fx supierior .177 liners at sub12 power.

    Grand Children

    My grand children love a good book reading to them but not twaddle. my wife reads to them and they love it.
  8. Hybrids have never made sense to me unless it was a way around beating the ulez charge in London. The battery range isn’t the best and your lugging around all the weight of the extra electric motors and batteries , so petrol or diesel economy suffers.

    Britains got talent. First question who are you and where are your from? Brooklyn America, is it just me that’s wondering why it’s called Britain’s got talent.

    Brook v Khan

    Khan still had his glove speed but didn’t land many. Was almost shadow boxing with his combos. Khan took a fair few good hits that I thought would have floored him. Walked right into one that shook him to his boots. Hope he don’t suffer long term form form the blows he took. credit to Brooks he was much better at landing them.
  11. Couldn’t agree more. I’m now looking forward the moto GP and F1 can sod off now. Totally spoilt it for me just when I thought it was getting good and worth watching again after years of synchronised driving. should call masi, jimmy as he fixed it for Verstappen to win.
  12. Plenty complain about them yet imagine being born and living in a goldfish bowl. Having to be a certain way then your uncle abdicates and your dad dies then your it. The head of state, test its privileged but not without a lot of downsides too. I'm no royalist but I’d rather have them than be like America. There have always been and will always be a black sheep or two.
  13. Tried one and a F3 it is not. Try one if you like it it’s all that matters. Andy crow shoots whatever he is given and sponsored to shoot.
  14. Only watched so much of it. It just came across as a Black Lives Matter made western to me and not very good.
  15. I used one for years as I don’t have a dominant eye. It took a long time and a perfect fitting gun for me to shoot without one. it don’t harm to try one, buy the cheapest think it’s the easy hit iirc.
  16. Enjoyed it mostly, read most of the books but some scenes where some skinny runt is getting the better of him. Dear me not a chance even if he laid down and let them. Other than that enjoyed it as something to relax and just watch.

    The compact and the standard have the exact same barrel and only difference is the bottle and shroud are shorter on the compact. Both are superbly accurate guns. I wanted the higher shot count and volume in the carbon bottle so went back to the standard impact.
  18. The gap in your forend happened to me on a new beretta after shooting it in the rain. It was teeming down and I then shot a flush getting the barrels scorching hot. The wood then moved and stayed that way. Very annoying but wood never stopped me using it. I did try the dampen the wood and bind it with elastic bands for a few weeks which did make the gap smaller. Such a shame as what Longthorne are doing with barrels as a one peice unit is much stronger. About time we were getting advancements in shotguns. But not the kind where customer is told to jog on after spending 50k on a now unmatched pair. Walker as many have said shotguns have not really changed in a hundred years. If it fits and is balanced costing many times more can’t make it hit more.
  19. I like the look and the manufacture of longthorne guns but this customer service is shocking. I just can’t see how they or others can charge so much for cnc machined guns. very few moving parts and tubes. hope you get a result

    Great gun and a tinkerers dream. Can swap calibre easily and they are easy shouldered and have good shot count. Accurate with right pellet so are most top end guns. I’m on my third impact had a full size one then a compact and back to a full size. Nephew now has my old compact and loves it.
  21. Rest in peace. Sadly another good old boy gone, always enjoyed his posts.
  22. He was very funny and great writer. RIP
  23. Both my wife and I enjoyed his music over the decades. rip
