  1. Point taken. Thanks for wisdom.
  2. Does anyone have any knowledge of fitting a rear monopod onto a GRS Berserk stock? My stock has the adjustable Limbsaver butt, which I am worried about removing in order to fit stud screws to fit the short picatinny rail. (There isn't a sling-stud on the GRS). Anyone's experience/advice would be welcome.

    Foxes. What do you do with them?

    Best Recipe, Skin, gut and de-brush (nail brush to chicken run gate). Chop 4 onions, 2 cloves garlic, a carrot and a large bunch of parsley. chop 1/2 lb pork belly into slices. Fry pork in olive oil, when browned, add other ingredients. Soften but don't colour. Add 2 glasses Guiness, de-glaze pan. Joint fox, fry to colour in oil. When browned, cover with veg mix, season well. Place in roasting pan. Cover carefully with packed layer of mixed barley straw and sphagnum moss. Roast gently at 180 degrees, gas mark 3 for 4 hours. Remove from oven. Extract fox meat and discard. Repeat with other ingredients but carefully extract moss--dry for 1 hour in a warm oven and then use as firelighter. NEVER WASTE A GOOD FOX!

    OCD rant!

    Just to add fuel to the fire, how about reticle (a cross-hair within a gun sight) and reticule (a small handbag carried by those of the Jane Austen fan cub). However, the OED gives the second spelling as an alternate to the first. Pedantic, moi? Still, the vision of a roughie, toughie rifle shootist equipped with a drawstring purse does bother me a little.

    OCD rant!

    Let's be clear, I don't want to cause any member to brake into a swet abowt this.

    OCD rant!

    OED definition of the word 'break': Separate into pieces as a result of a blow, shock, or strain. Ditto for the word 'brake': A thing that slows or hinders a process. Sad I know, but it makes me wince every time the writer of an otherwise interesting, well-written post describes the sometimes anti-social screwy- onny end-of-barrel thing as a muzzle break. As far as I know, they don't.
  12. Cannot understand why this hasn't sold yet. BUMP!
