  1. As certificate holders/firearms owners we have an absolute duty to keep them secure, the police have a right to check that security at any reasonable time. If that is all they are doing, you do not have to let them in(and they do not have a power of entry)if it is inconvenient ,and may ask them to return at a different/more convenient time. This is what has happened here. If they are acting on specific intelligence or as a result of a specific threat this is entirely different and they will force entry if you do not allow them entry. My advice would be as above. Regards, Rob.
  2. in all honesty they have given a reason for the visit.....a random security check which they are entitled to do at any time. However they do not have a power of entry for a random check, which they obviously did not enforce at the time and suggested they would come back on a later date. My suggestion would be to ring back and arrange a time convenient to you, which obviously shows willing on your behalf , and that you have nothing to hide. If they are acting on intelligence, then they do have a power of entry and refusing entry will end up in a whole heap of **** ! I am almost certain this is an example of FLD making use of ARV downtime to carry out checks on their behalf. I know not all ARV staff are shooters but I have read numerous posts from people complaining about FEO/PCSO's who have no idea which end of the gun goes bang so don't think it's entirely appropriate to complain when firearms officers carry out these checks. Regards, Rob.
  3. I'm assuming that the officers were armed with sidearm only ? It is quite common for ARV units to be deployed on F/A licensing checks and I understand that your issuing force are doing "random" checks. As already pointed out this is not within the guidelines as these "random" checks should be intelligence based. Almost all ARV crews are now routinely armed with sidearms and will conduct all policing duties whilst armed, issuing tickets, dealing with shoplifters, etc. So for them to attend with sidearms is not out of the ordinary....however if they attended with carbines, this would suggest entirely a different kind of visit ! Regards, Rob.
  4. If you look on the blackwoodoutdoors website (other websites are available!) that Charlts posted above, there is a fully adjustable one for £24.99 (windage and elevation) which is the one I use and yes it's all metal. Regards, Rob

    PVS 14 help needed !

    Hi all, Got the chance of the above FOC...but there's a catch (isn't there always !!). It will probably need a tube. My question is anyone know who/where I could get one and any idea of cost involved as to whether its a viable option ?? Regards, Rob.
  6. Hi Lee.....I'll have these please. Pm me for address/bank details, etc. Regards, Rob.

    .243AI dies

    Hi Steve......sent you a pm a few days ago about the dies, I presume you're not interested ? Regards, Rob.
  8. Hi Steve.....i've got some Redding 243AI dies if you're interested, they're as good as brand new, done next to nothing (under 150 reloads) as I just fell out of love with the calibre.

    I've just moved house and have no internet yet....reading this in a local cafe while nicking their wifi !

    If you're interested give me a call on 07976 618840 to discuss.

    Cheers, Rob.

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Hi Sam, Can't help with the Bergers, but my 6BR loves the 85grn Sierras ! I also use N135....31.0grns; very happy with the results. I'm pretty sure if you're in the 30-32grn range you'll find a happy place in there somewhere ! As always start low and work up. Regards, Rob.

    Different Groups

    Hi Liam, As stated above many factors come into play, but i'd be pretty sure barrel warming is at the root of the issue, whether thermal drift or barrel/stock contact. One way to check is to repeat the course of fire as best you can and see the results are repeated and check barrel/stock contact when hot. Bear in mind, someone much more knowledgeable than me told me that 1/1000th of an inch of movement at the firing point equals 1" of movement at 100 yards. Regards, Rob.

    Depending on time between shooting groups, could be thermal drift due to barrel getting hot ? Regards, Rob.

    AT AICS chassis system

    Hi Woodlander, Hope you're getting on with the NXS OK ? I've got an AI AX chassis and love it, fitted with a Stiller action which is Rem 700 clone. I think you've got to love "tacticool" rifles to like the look of the AI which is just as well as I do !! Performance wise I can't think of a reason why you wouldn't be absolutely delighted with the AI system except maybe weight....you'd need to be a big strapping lad to carry it around the hills all day. As for whether the Barnard fits easily/at all, unless Baldy or one of the other 'smiths comes along, give Steve Kershaw a bell and he'll let you know whats involved. Regards, Rob.

    Delta Stryker

    Hi Stephentri, If you're looking for an unbiased review of this scope then i'm probably the wrong person as i'm a Delta convert !! I've had the Titanium 4.5-30 for over a year and love it so muchI bought the 5-50 3 months ago on the back of it. I love it !! I personally like a fine reticle and the Delta has that and a superfine centre dot that illuminates with 11 stages of adjustment with "off" between each level which i like. Glass is very subjective, but to me Delta glass is better than Nightforce (i've had 2 NXS's) and almost on a par with S&B (i've had a PM2) and considerably cheaper than both. People ask how it compares to Sightron (similar price point)...i've never had one but looked through my mates and wouldn't thank you for one (just my opinion). Only downside as mentioned before is the slightly crap coin slots in the turrets but thats a small price to pay. As said before everyones eyes are different but for me I don't think you can buy any better at the price and without spending at least double. Hope that helps.....if you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Regards, Rob.

    Best UK Varminting Calibre?

    22BR for me if you homeload....once the case prep is done it's magic ! If using factory, reckon .223/.243 would be hard to beat.
