  1. A bit further away is Orston Shooting Ground which is off the A52 just west of Grantham. Vic.
  2. I have come across this question before and the problem only arose if you were carrying or storing enough cartridges to exceed the weight limit of powder to be declared an explosive hazard, this is about 10,000 28gm cartridges. Vic.
  3. Remember Steve, 'Nil illegitamae carborundum' Vic.

    Card only sales.

    There will be losers in a cashless society, One will be staff in restaurants and coffee shops etc. not getting tips because there is no loose change and the same applies to charity boxes by the side of tills. Another one will be taxi drivers who are suffering now, they take contactless card payments but passengers will not add anything for a tip. Vic.

    Card only sales.

    And when all shops are card only?
  6. Yet again I was in a shop today that would only accept cards for payment. When I queried the legality of this requirement the cashier didn't know whether it was legal or not but said, obviously, that no cash made their accounting considerably easier, so much so that they were going to stay with card only sales after lockdown. Is this legal not accepting coin of the realm as a tender for payment? Vic.
  7. In similar circumstances I got the offer of a speed awareness course. Take it, it's about £90 but you don't get points and many insurance companies don't take it into account for premiums but you should advise them at renewal time. It's a bit boring and you may be surprised how unaware some of your fellow attendees are. Vic.

    Pushbikes "again"

    Electric scooters are a big worry, they are illegal at the moment except for trial areas and are already causing serious injuries when being ridden on pavements which will always be illegal. Remember they are limited to 15.5mph but do not require a licence or insurance. Vic.

    Tesco's fruit .

    All our local food shops were driven out of business by the advent of supermarkets because the local shops cannot compete with the buying power of the big stores. I agree that the quality of the fruit and veg that our local supermarkets sell leaves a lot to be desired. Vic.
  10. The last time I had a stain on my action I went to the doctors. Seriously though try WD40, it's surprising what that will shift, on your gun I mean. Vic.
  11. I am not suggesting that they are but the spare on the new Defender looks much more attractive being very large and all new shiny alloy. Vic.
  12. I saw my first new model Land Rover Defender today. It is huge and seems to be about the size of a Ford Transit, I don't see many of them being bought by our local farmers in Lincolnshire for farm work like a poorly sick farm animal going to the vets. The spare wheel is mounted on the back door and looks right for stealing or vandalising as it is not in a cover. Vic.
  13. What are the 'minor' issues of which you speak? Vic.
  14. Yes I have seen several in wheelchairs mostly shooting skeet and DTL and shooting sporting where the ground is fairly flat. I used to shoot with one guy who only had one arm, he held the stock under his armpit while reloading, he was a good shot too. Vic.
  15. The picture that I saw in the paper today made himself look extremely unwell, haggard and drawn. Here's hoping for a full recovery at least as much as a 99 year old can make. Vic.
