    If Packham feels so strongly, he should decline the award. Simple

    Which Autos don't mind lighter loads?

    A Remington 1100/11-87 is light on recoil not only because it's a semi but surely because it weighs around 8lbs comparable with an over/under.

    Hand tightening extended chokes

    I believe Teague recommend using the key to tighten.

    Smart home

    Totally agree. My wife was given an Amazon Echo for Christmas and can't say I'm impressed. The sound quality is on a par with a battery radio. She was told about the benefits of getting free streamed music - no so free when you need an Amazon prime account or premium Spotify. Technology for the sake of technology - perhaps I'm just too old.

    What to do with ammo?

    Provided you sent in your renewal on time your present certificate will automatically be extended for 8 weeks without the need for a S7 so no ammo problems. Firearms Act, section 28b added earlier this year.
  6. There was a change in the Firearms Act on 17th April this year (Section 28B added) which states if you apply for your renewal at least 8 weeks in advance your existing certificate will automatically be extended by 8 weeks without the need to issue a temporary certificate in the event of a delay. It's in Home Office Circular 014/2018. Quite how this would be viewed by an RFD when purchasing ammunition would be interesting.

    Home office guide lines.

    I understood the guidance figure to be 10% + 2mph although it has no legal standing.
  8. The basic problem seems to be that the "rules" are guidance notes and police forces seem to interpret them as they see fit; hence the inconsistency across the country. Has anyone any experience of Essex police's policy as they are collaborating with Kent in many things.

    Two ESSs

    Probably too busy cleaning the floor to answer.
  10. You mean the duck they sell has ever been out in the fresh air?
  11. Much as I agree it's common sense to have the gun in a slip or case, and I would personally want to break it down in a bag, I have yet to see any legal requirement for it to be covered at all. A previous post includes the relevant portion of the act and no mention is made of covering the gun.

    Plasterers...HELP PLEASE!

    Bulls Eye 123 is excellent but it's no good unless you're putting it on a good base. If the paint underneath is peeling or flaking the new sealer will just come off with the old paint layers. Get back to a sound surface.

    Old (non high vis) blank pistols

    Orange spray paint?

    Tour de France 2018

    Just a thought? It looks pretty certain that Sky will be taken over, probably by Comcast. Will the new owner continue to sponsor cycling; especially a US company supporting what is almost the British national team in essence. This may be the last Tour De France for Sky.

    GMK Turnaround times

    Why did you not exercise your legal rights and ask for a refund or replacement? Having bought a gun to use it is not acceptable that you are left without the use of it for any length of time.
