    Laptop question

    Hi I've got my mum's old laptop and want to 'reset it. I may pit some more memory on it and use it for simple word processing stuff (ie not games playing or watching videos etc). Can someone give me a pointer what I need to do, it runs Vista. Cheers

    Shotgun certificate almost full

    The same thing happened to me. Just send it back with a covering letter and they'll send you a replacement. Perhaps it's wise to retain a photocopy, although a copy has no legal status it will have all your details on of you need them.

    Heads up gun auction

    I wish there were more auctions in the NW. I miss going to Byrne's in Chester.

    I’m going nuts

    You'll regret it if you don't rest. Tight fitting underwear and no lifting. The bruising is quite spectacular though! If you do get an infection, they'll end up the size of grapefruit!

    Ex miners or interested in mining.

    Used to travel past Gresford with my Dad in the early 70s going to the swimming baths in Wrexham. The pit head gear was still standing. Terrible disaster at that pit. I saw some photos/video of some enthusiasts in Standish digging out a coal tub with wheels from an abandoned pit/drift. The ultimate garden ornament!

    Old (non high vis) blank pistols

    The Olympic .22 is quite poor in build quality to the old Olympic .380 made by Bruni, I wish I hadn't had to surrender them.

    There are some documentaries on YouTube about the last independent drift mines in Lancs from a few years ago, real one man band type stuff!

    Old (non high vis) blank pistols

    It was the Olympic .380 that was banned, I handed in two of them. They were deemed to be too easy to convert. I replaced them with a legal, orange, Olympic. 22

    Country pub/ Resturant

    The Bower House Inn in Eskdale always used to be good.
  13. I suppose they would be equivalent to 00 buck, LG or similar. The brass wire would help keep the pattern together for greater impact. You'd want a clean kill with something like a wild boar. Strange set up.
