    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.

    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.
  5. Cannot understand why this hasn't sold yet. BUMP!

    Praise for Northants FLO team

    Cambs. are equally efficient. Really fast turnaround and a very good understanding of firearms generally. Credit where credit is due.
  9. Hi, pls send pics to jandsc@btinternet.com. Thanks. Jon
  10. That's really kind, thank you. I'd be grateful for anything they list for their 129gr bullet in 6.5 Creedmoor. Regards, Jon
  11. Thanks, I certainly might be. Pls send/post details and price. Regards, Jon
  12. Hi, thanks for your interest. Although I wasn't looking for the version with a reticle, I might well be. Could you please PM or post details and price. Thanks.

  13. Hi all, I am seeking advice please. I am looking for a Leupold 12-40 x 60mm spotter, either the GR or Mk 4 model. Apart from Uttings or Brownell's, does anyone know of a stockist or anyone that would like to sell one? Thanks. Jon
