    Flights

    I had colleagues who spent time in Congo, I have heard stories of Trans Air Congo so wont even try to compete. 😂

    Flights

    Virgin are the best - especially in terms of food in economy and entertainment. The bulk head seats have good leg room (I'm over 6ft and they rate as 'comfortable'). Not sure if they go from Manchester. BA - really not as good as they could be for a premium price. Their premium economy is good though. Norwegian - Its a plane. It will get there. Quit whining. I did once fly Berlinair (now defunct I think), that was an..... experience.

    What is an older Beretta?

    It will need a new top lever spring in the next few years (it's very much left leaning; not quite a full corbyn, but close) and the barrels could do with stripping and rebluing, again not urgent. (will be off to Bromley barrels soon anyway). I'm pretty chuffed.

    What is an older Beretta?

    I just joined the old Beretta club. Picked up a 1983 685e yesterday. Love the styling. Fixed choke 1/4 and half (what more do you need 90% of the time) . Extractors (but having shot my a lot sxs recently haven't really missed ejectors). 2 3/4 chambers (would have preferred 3, but hey.) Under £400.

    Blocked barrel with felt wads

    The only cartridges I ever had issues with were Eley. Same thing, a small huff and wad blocking the barrel. That was a plastic wad clay load.

    New Ceasar Guerini guns

    You seem to be taking one person's dislike of CG oddly personally

    Laurona spares

    Chopped it in for a beretta 685 in the end. Thanks to all for the help and suggestions though.

    Exactly my plan. 👍

    I got a parts list and spares prices for my Laurona 3" magnum o/u from them a couple of yeara ago.

    They bought all the spares when manufacturer folded.

      Exactly my worry. I will have a chat with a local Smith this week and get their opinion. The guns only worth £300 odd so this could get uneconomical very quickly if I can't find another pin.

      indefinite leave to remain

      Your right it's not. And the UK is pretty much on a par with everywhere else when it come to immigration from outside the EU.

      Not even close. http://bingham.butterworths.co.uk/PDF/level1/hosetm.pdf This link is to a pdf of the previous version of the form (its all online now so no paper copies available). It shows the level of detail non EU people have to go to.

      indefinite leave to remain

      At any point in the proceeding 5 to 10 years as part of other visas. ILR is one of the last steps to citizenship - not the first. (Go through Fiancée visa and two spousal visas before ILR if you are married to someone - its not automatic and hasn't been for years) For those suggesting ILR is a doddle I strongly suggest you have a look at what is entailed, it has changed significantly in the last 10 years. PS the system above must be very new - wasn't available when my wife applied in January. its a great idea though, it beats having to trek to a main Post Office to have it done and paying £25 for the pleasure.

      That's the ones. No stock though.

      It's the eibar single trigger boxlock OU. Spoke to the bosher and he said the last one he had to have made but would keep an eye out for a single pin. I'm not holding out much hope though, they are weird looking things and seem to be out of stock everywhere. The Mrs has given permission to replace the gun anyway so 'too expensive to repair' is pretty much the best outcome here.... 😁
