    LEFAUCHEUX Shotgun

    That’s all the information I have gunman, it looks tidy enough in the pictures and the price is very reasonable so I might just have a punt on it as a piece for interest haha. If I win I’ll post more pics and details ASAP. Cheers

    LEFAUCHEUX Shotgun

    Evening guys, one of the above guns has came up at auction. Its a 16g hammer gun on a back action. Has anyone had any experience of this action type? It looks interesting and I may be tempted to place a bid. Cheers, Jamie

    Brno opinions

    Any thoughts on the trigger?

    Brno opinions

    Having put 100 rounds through the rifle I’ve decided the best improvement I can make for the accuracy is to adjust the trigger. After some research it appears that I can either buy a spring kit for around £12-13 or some people are saying use a biro spring? Has anyone tried that as obviously if that works I’d rather not spend the money haha! Although if it doesn’t work then £13 isn’t a lot to spend either way. Thoughts appreciated!

    Brno opinions

    I’m having big debates on shortening it now! I had it out in the fields earlier just having a play and it was grouping under 1 inch at 50 yards from prone unsupported with the iron sights! I’d forgotten how much fun it could be playing with iron sights and the extra concentration needed to be accurate!

    Brno opinions

    Cheers fellas! Looks like it was one of my better impulse buys haha! Whats the opinion on barrel shortening? Does it affect accuracy etc? Ive heard that these barrels are choked?

    Brno opinions

    Hi guys, I picked a Brno mod 2 up today on a bit of a whim, cheap price for the rifle, scope and a moderator. It’s still got its iron sights and original 25” barrel, and overall in good condition. Whats people opinions on the Brno with regards to quality and accuracy plus ammunition recommendations. Thanks jamie

    Remington Model 700 PCR

    As regards to the bergara, I wouldn’t call it a cheap clone, it’s a far better rifle in all area, smoother action, great trigger and match quality barely all as standard and for about £700, mine in .243 absolutely outclasses anything my mates have and at the range will outshoot pretty much everything bar full blown f class rifles

    Am I entitled to travel time?

    I’ve spoken to my union rep, and emailed our HR department, I’m not on apprentice wage as I worked for the company prior to getting the apprenticeship and retained my old wage so I am paying tax. When I get some replies I’ll let you all know J

    Am I entitled to travel time?

    With regards to place of work my contract says this “4.1. Your place of employment shall be at *newcastle* [or such other places as the organisation may require]” ive substitutes Newcastle for my depot name just for privacy, have they covered themselves with the other such places statement?

    Am I entitled to travel time?

    After a quick look into claiming back through hmrc I don’t think I’d be able to as I haven’t kept a mileage log throughout the year, i would be able to calculate the miles accurately as I have all my term time dates but the hmrc doesn’t allow you to create data for historical events. J

    Am I entitled to travel time?

    I totally understand that, it’s the distance that has gotten to me. I have a 240 mile round trip where as the next furthest round trip is 140 miles, week to week I’m not to bothered as we split the fuel costs between 4 of us so it’s only £10 each. But they have now started to book us in for a day here and there which when you include a 5 hour drive with no traffic, if we hit traffic it’s often over 7 hours of driving, and it’s this which has made me ask the question.

    Am I entitled to travel time?

    If it was the job that was in Preston then I would move or look elsewhere but there was no mention of Preston until we got the job as the company hadn’t finalised the arrangement yet (not going to mention the company as it’s a big one) I’ve already tried claiming mileage but they won’t let me because im on a personal policy, they say I’d need business insurance to claim any fuel back. Ill go to my union rep about whether or not I’m entitled to travel time.

    Am I entitled to travel time?

    I’m on an apprenticeship at the moment but my college is based in Preston where as I live in Newcastle, the company provides accommodation during the week so I drive down monday morning and come home Friday afternoon. In previous years the company has used colleges local to its depots so on average lads where driving 10 miles to college, they have changed this year so that we all go to one college which is much nearer to 2 Depots than it is mine, the other lads have a 60-100 mile round trip where as mine is 240 miles. In law is there anything I can claim back to help cover costs? Jamie
