  1. I have responded but it basically confirms the situation that currently exists in some areas and all of Scotland. No FAC/ SGC renewal or grant without a report from the doctor and no cap on fees so you can be gouged in some area to ridiculous levels unless you want to change GPs. No real benefit to public safety as I guess like quite a few others my GP wouldn't know me from Adam as I am fortunately in good health and have not been to the GPs for about 6 years and even then saw a couple of locums. To be fair you would be better off asking a few of my work colleges or friends about my fitness or own a firearm as they see me more in fact mostly ever day!
  2. Hi how do you want to pay BACS or paypal.

    1. Yes please if not already gone. Can you PM me and let me know payment details? Ta Neil
    2. When you start annealing Steve (if you havent done it before) check out a great topic on the stalking directory on this subject I have just done a load of my cases that went well using nothing but a blow torch a battery drill and a bar of laundry soap.

      advice needed

      Got to agree on this I have double loaded a couple of times on my BSA Scorpion in .22 and it will just fire the pellets out but at a significantly lower velocity.

      Really good series after watching it (just got the last episode to do tonight) without doing spoilers I had to fast forward through the dog bits as I am a big softies when it comes to dogs so it was a bit hard to take . The disregard for human life in the name of covering up the full extent of what had happened even in the early years of Glasnost was real eye opener. Reminiscent of throwing waves of young men into the teeth of machine guns and panzers during the second world war "the motherlands thanks you for your service"
    5. When I had one in FAC the charging fitting was the standard Daystate foster fitting if that helps
    6. No brainer at that price to be honest I would have it straight off
    7. Saw this on the new this morning summed it up for. Would have thought Emma would have stayed in LA and not flown 5000 odd miles banging out a load of CO2 to get arrested in London. Maybe a protest in LA trying to close the airport would have been better? Hang on though the nasty American police probably wouldn't have looked kindly on that or have been as understanding and they have tazers
    8. Did mine with Thames Valley on line in Jan and just had my ticket back. You dont have to print or post anything. Photo can be uploaded as per the new passport pics, Signature is basically a digital signature and payment is by credit or debit card on line with you getting a full receipt at the end so no more trying to remember where you cheque book is you last used five years ago!. Finally you scan in a copy of your current FAC and mail it to an E-Mail address they provide at the end. Works well with one slight current issue. You cant save the form and go back to it so if you stop half way through you need to start all over again which is a pain so make sure you have all your info to hand. I am sure this will get rectified shortly though.
    9. So finally got a chance for quick play in between the showers. Grouped well at 25 yards with Barracuda Match which was as far as I could push it on my little indoor range. Chrono was giving me 31.6 Ft/lb aver a 4 shot string. All in all really happy. Pic below although the scopes coming off and I am putting a Leupold Varix III I have spare.
    10. Trouble is with the .25 the pellet choice was limited and at 50 ft/lb+ you were getting towards rimfire territory. The great thing about .22 is the pellet choice is massive so there is more chance of finding one the barrel likes. Also there is more chance of finding a second hand .22 FAC air full stop . When I got my .25 it was the last one FX had in the UK at the time and the choice on anything else that was new involved a 12 week + lead time. So I decided to play the safer numbers game and go for .22
    11. Rabbits and Squizzers mainly. I have .17 HMR and a .243 but need something for a few areas of permissions that arnt really suitable for those. I had an FAC bobcat in .25 a while ago and foolishly let it go so as I was renewing I thought I would take the opportunity to get another FAC air as I missed having one and it fills a niche between sub 12 ft/lb and the HMR
    12. I was torn between the two but to be honest the R10 was more in the budget I had set myself so that swung it in the end.
    13. This was me measuring the shroud length so 15.5 sounds right. Tt was an FAC from new and had the telegraph pole shroud on it but he got that cut down to the length of the barrel by their smith who does their barrel work and put a mod on it. he didn't cut down the barrel on the shroud.
