    Tested some more 22 subs

    CCI Quiet .22 takes some beating. It's reasonably quiet even without a moderator, but it's practically silent with one. https://www.cci-ammunition.com/products/detail.aspx?use=3&loadNo=960

    D-Day recollections

    Hearing the matter-of-fact way that the old soldiers talk about their experiences, and describe some of the conditions that they had to endure, it's difficult not to crack a smile, or get a lump in the throat. They say they weren't heroes. Well lads, as far as I'm concerned, each and every one of you is a bl@@dy hero.
  5. Nice idea, but I can already feel the pain as I crack my hip bones against 'em! 😣

    .22 or .17HMR? Go for broke and get one of each. You can pick up good used CZ's for not much money, and the chances are that you will be able to get both for less than the price of one. 😉 Look for CZ 452, CZ453 or CZ455 in .22LR. There are usually quite a few of each - except perhaps the 453 - on Gunstar, Guntrader etc.

    Wind up radio

    It's probably because the DAB reception is so hit and miss.
  10. The Rimfire Magic kit is as good as any, and the service is excellent. https://www.rimfiremagic.co.uk/trigger_kits.html Polishing the trigger/sear mating faces pays dividends, too.

    Cz 452

    You could always try a Boyds. https://www.sportsmanguncentre.co.uk/rifle-accessories/rifle-parts-accessories/boyds-rifle-stocks/page/2/sort-by/name/sort-direction/asc

    Home Office FOI Request

    I've long held the belief that our obsession with setting sentences of "Up to XYZ years" needs to be addressed. It seems like it's always the lower end of the scale that gets used, regardless of the crime committed. The judicial system is long overdue for a change, methinks.
  14. Does this have the 30/30 reticle?

    CZ 452 opinions

    You won't go far wrong with a CZ 452. The 455 has the ability to support .22LR, .22WMR and .17HMR .... at a price .... but most people I know just buy the caliber they want in the first place. The 452 has been the mainstay of just about every shooting club in the country for more years than I can remember, and collectively they must regularly fire many millions of rounds a year with the minimum of fuss and bother .... all for a bargain basement price. What's not to like! ?
