  1. Thank you all for your inputs. Getting quite a wide ranging selection of opinions from our committee on this matter. I feel they are over thinking it, how ever they are the committee. Trying to design a race horse by consent and ending up with a camel comes to mind. FB
  2. Thank you all for your responses. These will be looked at in greater detail. FB
  3. I have been looking into methods of dust suppression in indoor ranges. My idea is to lay a roll of 5mm rubber sheeting behind the target frames, lying it directly on the sand in the butts. Every so often we can "stitch" a sacrificial piece over the pulverised area. With lying the rubber on the sand it may help to stop the cratering effect of repeated strikes in the same area by stopping the sand erupting into free air. One or two committee members are concerned about the introduction of minute rubber particles in the air, but I dont know if this is a valid argument as we are all subject to rubber particles from road tyres on a daily basis. I personally am more concerned with the lead dust that is given off. There is a lot of evidence about the increased levels of lead in the blood stream of shooters in indoor ranges. The only thing I can find is that rubber curtains are used in some indoor ranges where steel back stops are used, but nothing about the type of rubber used or whether it has to have some kind of CE mark. The range does have dust extraction but I am concerned that this may not be enough on its own. Any comments gratefully received. FB
  4. Fantastic, well jealous. Good luck with it all. Look forward to seeing pics of the ongoing project. FB
  5. I would agree and say that it`s a Mk 1. FB
  6. If 2 way radios are exempt I shall have to dig out the old CB radio. 10/4 rubber duck. FB
  7. He didn't say he had broken his wrist before he said " I ******** my wrist back in march." could have just been a strain injury.
  8. I have used the Ombudsman in the past and they are more than helpful. Got my claim paid and compensation as when told to pay me they sent a lesser amount. When I reported this to the Ombudsman they were on the phone immediately to the insurers who said it was a clerical error caused by a new clerk in the office and the new check was issued that day. Make sure that you have all your evidence ready and they will start proceedings. Its not a quick process as they have to give the insurers time to present their case for not paying, the Ombudsman will then take a reasonable balanced view. Costs nothing. Go for it and good luck.
  9. As a protocol at my range, I double checked a 10/22 rim fire last week as the owner was putting it into his gun bag in the gun room, I said to the owner does your rifle not lock the bolt back after the last round, he said his didn't. He was mortified when I got him to rack the bolt and a high velocity round ejected to the floor. This man has been shooting for donkey years, it can happen to any one.. During the war (2nd WW) the yanks had a saying, amongst many others "Accidents are no accident" stay aware folks. Be safe and be seen to be safe. FB
  10. Prior to your post this thread is 5 and a half years old.
  11. Shhh, the similarities with Dunblane come to mind, (so I won`t mention it) as Hamilton was allegedly supplying young boys, not girls to very powerful people. FB

  13. Induction hobs as said, are so fast heating up it`s amazing. Just need to have specially marked pans or steel pans as they are what are required to make the induction element work. Have used them for around 10 years now. Very easy to clean as they have glass tops. The eye level grills just slot into a purpose made housing, no problems with those.
