    How much do the thread bridges go for? My rifles are all 1/2"x20

    Woodwork/tool question

    I use oak and yes you can make them yourself. You can hammer a metal wedge across the wooden one I glue them in too - I think it helps lubricate when you drive it in

    Which disposable razor?

    Bought a razor pit yesterday and it arrived today. It's pink but it was £4.79 delivered (eBay). Thought it might be a cheap scam but it's the genuine article. Tried it on my **** Aldi razor and was instantly impressed. Turned it from a blunt instrument into something almost sharp. Not as good as a new Gillette Mach4 but considerably cheaper and it wasn't new to begin with

    To FAC or not to FAC

    Thinking about getting a PCP for squirrels etc. and have read that FAC rifles are cheaper than non. I already have an FAC so it would just be a case of getting another slot or is there any reason to not go for an FAC rifle (which could after all be made to shoot at sub-12ftlb levels as desired)?

    They consistently don't eject!

    To FAC or not to FAC

    Caps are quiet and pretty powerful - haven't chrono'd them yet but at 20 yards went through 2 sheets of plasterboard (stopped by the 3rd) - they won't eject, though, which is really annoying. Designed and printed a magazine especially for them too although a bit pointless if I have to poke a cleaning rod down the barrel after every shot.

    To FAC or not to FAC

    Bought some CB caps today at FA Anderson in East Grinstead - £4.95/100. Also bought some Federal 22LR birdshot, which was quite a bit more expensive and probably completely useless for what I need

    Which and why. .17hmr

    Thanks for that, Whitester. Wish I'd known before I bought my bolt action rifles! It is a cool action Funnily enough, this review says the trigger is one of the best out there: http://www.rifleshootermagazine.co.uk/gun-tests/browning-t-bolt-target-laminate-22lr-rifle-review-1-4577736

    Care to elaborate? I was led to believe the trigger wasn't very adjustable

    An expensive morning

    My Hilux came with a Truckman Luxury Top but the rear glass had partially come unstuck from the surround so thought I'd glue it back in again. Bought some adhesive and bunged a load in. Needed some clamping to make sure it was solid. Glass doesn't like being clamped. Doesn't like it at all. Toughened glass goes "BANG!" when it breaks.

    a few more woodland pics.

    I didn't spray the grass and mine went in a lot smaller too. They're doing well but the alder went into pretty soggy ground and has rocketed away. All beginning to look a bit sad now as the leaves wither but I notice the grass has been suppressed somewhat underneath them due to the shade and leaves so I'll get that forest floor soon

    Porcelain type material ..?????

    May have made up the term but it's this sort of stuff: https://www.smooth-on.com/product-line/xtc-3d/

    a few more woodland pics.

    Thought about planting some red oak here for the autumn colour. Hoping my poplar really take off next year. They've done fairly well (I have 4 varieties) but in comparison to the alder they're puny.

    You can buy flow epoxy - would that do?

    Forgot to grease my end

    Can you get some circlip pliers up there with a bit of rubber to grip the inside?

    a few more woodland pics.

    It is great but will be a few years before I can really say it's a woodland. Attracts plenty of wildlife and I've already won an award from The Woodland Trust. Had Defra round the other week for a tour too

    a few more woodland pics.

    I wanted to buy a house with woodland but couldn't find one that suited, so planted my own. 5 years on and it's quite thick in some places - many of the alder are 6 inches across and the number of self seeded oak, birch and willow are countless. These pictures don't show the biggest trees but I've planted about 2,500 and more to come this winter Then: Now:

    Ah, you edited before I could respond. No, it's curved unfortunately

    Autostyling tell me it's the Truckman Grand Hardtop I have - £560 delivered (for just the rear door)...

    Which and why. .17hmr

    The T-bolt has a cool action but I'm told the trigger isn't great. If I were you I'd make an offer on one of the Anschutz although buying a CZ would give you a lot more money left over for scope etc. I have a Bushnell Legend HD on mine and it's awesome.

    Which and why. .17hmr

    I have a Weihrauch HW60J in 17HMR and it's a lovely rifle. I've compared it to a friend's Ruger and to a CZ. It certainly feels a bit more "quality" but I doubt it's any more accurate and who cares when you're out in the field?

    An expensive morning

    I know. It's the luxury hardtop I have, I'm told. It has a light (which doesn't work), a heated rear screen (which doesn't work and is now in granular form) and central locking, which doesn't work either. It also leaks but aside from that it's terrific

    An expensive morning

    Waiting to see what Truckman say but couldn't see through it anyway from the driver's seat and I've removed all the glass and glue from the fibreglass frame so cutting a bit of acrylic or plywood shouldn't be too much of an issue
