  1. But since when has heavy, manual labour equalled higher wages? I have a heavy job and get not much more than minimum wage, whilst the missus sits at a PC all day and gets paid five times as much as me. Yes, I could retrain and get a better paid job but the added stress on my poor old brain wouldn’t take it
  2. Haven’t been to Cluny in months... really must get back!
  3. What a shame I don’t have an airgun cert 😞 I’m in Dunfermline too!
  4. There was a chap on TV yesterday, who was out walking his dog, when he was approached by two men who grabbed his dog. They told him they’d stab him if he tried to take his dog back 😮 The same chap is an ex boxer
  5. Tried them once and they were terrible.
  6. We use Amazon Prime a lot. The included next day delivery alone is worth it IMO if you order a lot of stuff online. Waiting 3-5 days on a delivery is really annoying these days And we watch the Prime video stuff a fair bit, too.
  7. SNP supporters tend to be much more fanatical up here than any other party. During the 2014 referendum, they shouted people down in the streets and (virtually) on social media. Mobs were organised when they knew opposition parties would be in the area canvassing. It was a toxic time in Scotland and not one i’d like to see anytime soon. As for the Krankie, I thought she was doing well through lockdown but ‘Indyref 2’ is firmly within her sights and she can see no other future for Scotland.
  8. How much are you asking posted?
  9. Sorry for butting-in but I might be interested depending on type/price
  10. I’ve used the Barbour wax before but now use Gold Label waterproof wax. It just seems to apply better and you get more for your money. I use a fan heater angled down to the work surface, to keep the area warm. Heat the wax to melt it and apply generously with a sponge. Best tip I could give, to get a nice even finish, is to get an old cotton pillowcase ( preferably with button closure, so the jacket doesn’t fall out), put the jacket in it after waxing and shove it in the tumble drier for 20 minutes. Comes out great 👍
  11. Not sure exactly. There doesn’t seem to be many about. Many of the ads online show as having no stock available.
  12. Anyone selling a deactivated Lee Enfield (Mk4 / SMLE preferred but not sporterised) or Sterling 9mm SMG?
  13. That has always bothered me. Prior to using emails, I used to send notifications by recorded mail for security. Then they send my licence by snail mail... obviously a cost cutting exercise but the extra cost of secure postage could be incorporated into the fees.
  14. Must admit i’ve mostly printed the files that others have designed. I’ve only designed a couple of very simple objects (on Fusion 360) but I need to knuckle-down and do some learning on the subject. These were the parts I made for a Chewbacca bandolier...
  15. Neatsfoot oil and flex the leather after applying, a thin coat at a time, letting it soak-in before applying again.
  16. I’ve owned a 3D printer for some time now and printed various stuff. Not much relevant to shooting, though 🤔 (Unless you regard Star Wars blasters as ‘shooting’ related 😂) Anybody printed interesting shooting items? I quite fancy printing a collection of shotgun or rifle ammo for size comparison.
  17. The ready salted ones are definitely not as nice as they used to be. Probably cut too much salt out. The salt and vinegar dissolve the inside of the cheeks, though, so every cloud... 😮
  18. I got an email today from a chap who has been dead for over a year. Most impressive!
  19. I used to work in a DIY store and one of the favourites there, was the thief would put a pressure washer on a trolley, pull off the plastic banding, open the box and fill any gaps with packs of Duracell, dimmer switches etc., then replace the banding. They knew the alarms would go off due to the copper coils inside the machine and that staff would wave them through. They’d then take it home, empty all their stuff and return the washer for a refund... I scuppered one guy’s plans and he had over £2k of stuff in it 😮
  20. I don’t think the artsy photos do it justice. Google images of the gun and it is rather lovely 🙂
  21. Think i’ll stick to my cheap Asda Ruby Port... I honestly can’t tell the difference between that and really expensive stuff... hic...
  22. Merkur 35 (I think) and Feather blades. But buy from a reputable source, as fakes are gash (pun)
  23. Are you sure the other answers are correct?
