    The only people who care are those who own them, and amongst shooters they are a minority within a minority. Same old same old.

    Ok then maybe the 2nd miracle since the birth of jesus if they dont get banned. 

    I will be standing up Tuesday with my hands in the air apologising for this premature post.

    I asked for a source because you said that it had already gone through- which it hasn't. It's extremely likely that it will but it hasn't happened yet.

    The ban has not gone through. An amendment keeping rifles above 10,000ft/lbs as section 1 with additional security was submitted by Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown on Wednesday. 

    This will be discussed on Monday at the report stage.

    Grandfathering has never been an option.

    For more accurate information go to the FCSA Facebook page.

    Thanks

    Increasing security rather than outright banning something? Sounds dangerously close to being logical!

    Not sure about a saviour. 

    You could be a disciple, i think that the 50 cal boys could have done with every single rifle shooter to help out to put more pressure on the antis.

    Shooting community on issues such as this: 150,000 disciples... 147,500 of them are Judas!

    Yes, however if you are pushing it to get the long ranges barrel life is approx 500 rounds, it also kicks the **** out of the brass so reloading is difficult.

    At £5 a round I could use a prophet.

    As short a life as that, what do you get with the fifties ?

    Barrels seam to last for ever, it's a slow lump with cool powder. brass varies with the make, Igman seems to go on forever, just monitor the brass and chuck when looking ropey.
