  1. Evening chaps (I'm assuming still no chapesses still, due to the speed they get scared off by the PW massive!) long time no post, but still about! I've recently had an accident which, in short, is going to severely compromise my right eye vision for at least a year, quite possibly permanently. My left eye was becoming dominant anyway due to a slight degradation in the right which I resolved using a tape 'patch'. So, seeing as I can't use my right eye now, I figure the best solution is to learn to shoot off my left shoulder and left eye. It sounds easy if you read it fast! Other than having to teach new muscle memory, how difficult is this likely to be? It feels very alien to mount a gun in my left shoulder, but I guess I'll get used to that, what are the other issues to overcome? If you had to do this I'd be VERY keen to hear your experiences.

    I'd guess that if you got the laser straight in its eye, then like us it'd make it jump!

    Landrover for sale

    Mmmm, loving the 90, all that needs is a cage, too much for my tastes though! Not loving the bulkhead on the Series though.

    I went with the missus to the Brighton show. While not really my cuppa, I have to say he put on a bloody good show. Not bad at all for a bloke a year off his seventieth!

    While not quite the vernacular I would have used, I completely agree with the gist of your post.

    welcome changes to dog laws

    Somehow, through the back door, it has become fashionable to champion the minority at the expense of the majority, and somehow the majority has lost its voice and power. If you are 'normal' you are sidelined, if you are a 'cause celebre' then of course your opinion counts and must be heard. It's another thing I suspect Mr Farage and co will appreciate rather than denigrate as at least they seem to live in the real world.

    Major abuse from an "anti shooting" farmer.

    Farmer? I suspect not. More likely a 'gentleman' of means who decided he fancied the country life, bought a house with 'a bit of land' and decide he really should have a pop at this livestock malarkey! You did everything you should, now crack on with your business and let him mind his!

    Oh ok, wanted a proper Range Rover but didn't have quite enough to buy one so got an ex Police motor at auction?

    Not if he's doing 70. Well not legally anyway... Still immaterial though

    Immaterial. The Highway code states that if it is clear and safe to do so then you should always travel in the left hand lane on the motorway (lane 1). Lanes 2 and 3 are for overtaking only, this would include pulling out to accommodate joining traffic moving at a slower pace.

    Agreed that you should, but I'm sure you've seen people hurtle down the slip road to eventually check a mirror, discover there's an artic in the way and then having to stomp the anchors to save being squished. Almost daily on the M23 for me!

    Ridgeline Torrent Euro II Jacket

    All of the above is spot on! I had a Torrent 2 and now a Roar 2, both have been perfect. Left the blinking Torrent in a hotel wardrobe that magically vanished when checked for!

    Will do the same. How do we pay?
  14. You have GOT to be having a laugh! 41 pages this thread has reached, and agree or disagree with what he has had to say, he has been here on just about every page of those 40, either putting information out there, responding to comments and all the while taking constant flack! I'd say he has more than discharged any responsibilities he may morally have, because I don't think BASC employ him to PW forums bitch. Like what he had to say or not, I have to admire the man for his patience and tenacity!
