    Shooting, Shooting, and a bit more Shooting!! Hunting on my days off.I have been shooting since the age of 12 (air rifle) I acquired a shotgun certificate at the age of 15 and a firearm cert' at the age of 25. (now aged 60) I used to participate in pistol shooting, in the good old days when they were legal, and owned many full bore & small bore pistols. I have represented Wales twice in International DTL clay shooting and also represented my county (Mid-Glamorgan) for many years.My shooting now consists mainly of vermin control - crow,pigeon, rabbit, squirrel and fox. I also did Deer stalking for a few years. One of my many other interests is photography, which I have been doing for at least 30 years.

    It would be nice, but no, I didn't think that!

    That's what I thought to be honest. As per my reply above.

    Has anyone done the above, and if so, how does it work? What do you do with your suitcases?

    Beretta Bag

    Still for sale.
  8. I did this, and fitted a shaped 2" piece of wood inside the sleeve before putting it on the stock. It worked well too.

    My wonderful wife.

    Yet another wonderful comment made by my dear wife. She is only 5ft tall and was struggling to reach an item from the top shelf of the wall cupboard in the kitchen. 'Its no good' she said, ' we'll have to move into a bungalow'. I said that the cupboards would still be high for her, and she replied, ' Oh yeah'😀

    Kalix Teknik adjustable cheek piece

    UPDATE: I received the kit this afternoon and set out fitting it to my Tikka T3. All was going well, but I drilled the two top holes where the rod's slide down, slightly off centre, so had to open them up a bit to allow them to fit properly. I haven't got a pillar drill, which would have made it a lot easier. I'm pleased with the result though.

    Reloading rifle start up cost.

    IF you shoot regularly and get through many rounds, eventually, you will start saving money by reloading. My equipment cost me many £100s of pounds in total, but after many, many years of reloading, it's paid for itself. I reload for 22 Hornet, .204 Ruger and .243, ( + 22-250 & .308 in the past) and each reloaded round is less than half the price of factory produced ones. I reload though, because I enjoy it.

    Kalix Teknik adjustable cheek piece

    I've seen one of these. It does the job no doubt, but I liked the look and quality of the Kalix.

    My first plunge into the world of SLR was a Zenith too. 35mm and built like a tank.
