  1. I thought they were £15.50 per hour? How did three of you pay £45 for four hours? Is there a special discount code?

    You can shoot it with whatever you want? Practical Optic class is anything goes, Service Optic is 5.56/.223 or 7.62/.308 only

    You should. Best fun you can have with a rifle, and one of the most challenging.

    Scope elevation question

    It sounds like you have set to zero on the second turn . Is the yellow showing in the turret window? If so, you need to rewind the turret back to it's first turn when you loosen the screw and set to Zero, otherwise you will run out of elevation as you have done. Don't ask me how I know

    UK Distributors too greedy?

    GMK is owned by Beretta (60%) and 40% by the Waktare family

    UK Distributors too greedy?

    If you've ever run a business and paid building rent, office furniture, computers, printers, photocopiers, business rates, wages, employers NI, pensions, utilities, security, large amounts of stock (just in case people want it, because they will always ask for the thing you don't have), and then also allow for the retailer's mark up - the actual margins for the wholesalers aren't great. Unfortunately everyone wants something for nothing these days. You only have to look at wanted ads on shooting sites, where people write 'Wanted Cheap Good Quality Scope/Dies/Press/Mod/Widget etc etc. Or, the question 'What good quality 'X' can I buy cheap. The enjoyment of owning something of quality always outlasts the euphoria of getting a bargain price!

    Changing factory ammo

    Buy a box of 20, shoot a few. If they aren't what you want, shoot the rest off for fun and try another box.

    What waterproof jacket / smock

    Paramo and Keela are prone to ripping in brambles. Good on the range or hiking, but not rugged.

    I am after a .223 / 5.56 AR15

    Now't stranger than folk...........apart from folk in the shooting community!

    I am after a .223 / 5.56 AR15

    This one was for sale here recently, ideal for CSR and a good price. It isn't hard to find one

    Get a Bradley Arms or Valkyrie, 16 - 18 inch barrel, adjustable stock and 6-8 mags You don't need much else apart from a scope If it's for CSR you've already missed half this season already. Much easier to get a rifle and start shooting than keep looking because you aren't sure what to get, surely.

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    Not an extra 21 days, but the statutory 21 days from when they make the request. Yes Hants have really got on top now, and are fully upto speed. A one for one can take 3 days

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    Spoke to Hants today. If they do not receive anything from the GP they will process the application/renewal after 21 days

    GP.s and FAC renewals

    That is quite an assumption to make in relation to the fee and one which Hants also now replicate

    New Tikka rimfire

    I didn't think it did. Having not shot .22lr at 100 yet, I was trying to save myself time and ammo getting a ballpark figure

    What was the elevation from 25 to 100?
