    24 Hour Emergency Backpack

    One of those square plastic boxes (about 9" x 9") with the gasket sealed clip-on lid from Poundshop, 2/3 full of cat litter, covered with a bit of towelling...............works for the ladies as well 😀................... Pete

  7. Could the sensor be attached to the fore-end, rather than the barrel? Pete

    Tikka T3x prone to rusting?

    Did you check the bore before firing it for the first time? It looks very much like a faulty new barrel a colleague showed me a couple of years ago..........it was returned. Maybe a faulty billet was used to pull the original blank.......it looks a bit extreme for rust in such a short time, and you would have noticed it when cleaning before it got this bad. Pete

    Sellers sending bought items

    Hermes lost £80's worth of stuff that I'd sold on Ebay..............vintage radio valves. Despite my accurate description of contents, and delivering three packs of these without a problem, when I tried to claim, they said "we don't deliver anything with glass, it's a restricted item"................wouldn't use them again. I take anything I'm sending to the local Uni branch of the Post Office now, 2nd class recorded delivery, or special deliv if it's expensive..............never let me down yet. ( hope that doesn't turn out to be "Famous last words......) Pete

    Wooden AI AW stocks

    The trigger guard could be a weak point, depending on the grain orientation, and the action would need to be bedded. Probably OK for airsoft, but maybe not for a centre/rim fire job...............they do look very nice, though. Pete

    Unlike dinner partners?

    Here's a couple of my regulars enjoying some peanuts..................they always eat these first. Pete
  13. According to the 2020-2021 hire charges I just downloaded from the NRA website, it should have been "N/A", whatever that means.................... Pete
