    Gun store new york

    I think your right terry ,from what I've researched they tend to cater in main for law enforcement ,i.e. Police sales I was hoping to maybe pick up a charge master scale but no big deal thanks anyway

    Thanks all ,maybe just visit a range ,I know the laws in NY are strict I've got two sons also coming so perhaps give them the experience of firing some of the pistols I enjoyed back in the day..

    Best ever pickles ?

    Hi terry and moorlander, Ok ,I'd love to claim this as my own but wife's mothers recipe, 1/shallots purchased on line from "Parrish farms" medium English shallots ,if these are medium glad I didn't go for large! £7.49 for 4kg method 1/ peel shallots and cover in brine ,1tbl spoon salt to 1 pint water cover bowl with a plate to ensure they stay fully submerged, for 24 hrs, drain but do not rinse! 2/ dry between tea towels when fully dry pack into jars tightly! 3/we use sarsons classic malt pickling vinegar heat gently in pan but do NOT! Boil, add sugar at a ratio of 7dessert spoons sugar to 1ltr of vinegar/ if you prefer a bit more kick add 3 dried red chillies and half tsp of mustard seeds, 4/ allow sweetened vinegar to cool fully then pour over onions ensuring they are completely submerged , 5/ wait around 6-7 weeks and that's it , as you say cold meats on Boxing Day bubble and squeak ect, tend to have ploughmans lunch strong black bomber cheddar crusty bread Saturday lunch drool! Good luck

  13. Thanks for that Al,as blade is not marked I have to say I don't know but based on what you've told me it could well be "martenistic "stainless steel ,hope this helps Perkin steel
  14. Hi, no not stainless steel as far as I can tell I passed a magnet over it and it attracts so possibly stainless steel combined with another? I'm no expert and I'm not sure to be honest cheer Dave .
