  1. Lots Of Club Rifles!

    Yes, that's what I thought - the SU has no idea of resale value so perhaps it would be nice to pass them on to other struggling uni clubs for a token fee
  2. Lots Of Club Rifles!

    Just pondering - where will the money go? Are you responsible to the Athletic Union to get a decent return? Cause if no-one is really scrutinising the sale, perhaps a donation of kit to other uni clubs, maybe on a long loan, would be a good idea? I seem to remember Stirling Uni being in a similar boat after the union removed endorsement - perhaps someone a little older and wiser than me can recount the story?

    Best sales thread in ages In Soviet Russia, tacks drive YOU!

  9. Admin Away

    No, BEST snow in 50 years! Bendigo, eh? Used to go out with a girl from there. She ate nothing but chips. Didn't last long (much that I like chips).
  10. Gemini Ultra For Sale

    That was there long before Tim heard there was a Gemini for sale.... Hey! That's not true . I haven't yet figured out how to get to that sort of site :angry: Ewwwww. I didn't mean that kind of drool!

  12. Anschutz 1413 & 1813

    He did say "please contact by email". Perhaps he hasn't read the forum?
  13. Left Handed Rifle

    This is possible with a bolt handle adapter so that the bolt can be operated left handed but where you get them from I don't know I believe they're most commonly found in the back of old range armoury cupboards. That solution is still not ideal as the loading port is cut on the wrong side for a left hander. I think the stock needs to get chopped a bit, and even then the crossunder bit can get caught on some other piece of kit like your sling depending on your position. Best to find a proper Lefty I reckon.
  14. Gun Cabinet For Sale

    Hello all, As I'm moving house and have nowhere to put it, I'm selling my rifle safe. It's pretty large - get somewhere between 4 and 6 guns in there, and there's a seperate lockable compartment on top for ammo/bolt etc. It really has to be collected (from Chelmsford, Essex) and ideally before the 4th Sept. Good overall condition. Any sensible offers considered - just let me know. Might get round to posting a genuine pic and dimensions if there's some interest. In the meantime, follow this link to see a similar one... (it looks sort of like the one on the left. Dunno if it's the same manufacturer though...) http://www.talarms.co.uk/BrattonCab.jpg (Batteries not included) Cheers, Neil
  15. Gun Cabinet For Sale

    You said it, not me! Cabinet now sold. Cheers, Neil
  16. Gun Cabinet For Sale

    Nah, I sold it ages ago! Bought the cabinet to store it down here but figured it was easier to just use a club gun coz I'm not getting to shoot much (in fact not at all at the mo )
  17. Petrol Prices

    If everyone switched to LPG, then that would show 'THEM' what we think of petrol prices. Up till the Government realised and started putting more tax on LPG that is... I just read that TSB Report. Standards of English really are slipping. Is he a Chief Economist? Blimey. It reads like a bad GCSE comprehension essay! You can stop reading now if you don't care what's wrong with it... Starting a sentece with 'But' (several times), putting a comma before 'and' (I know that's acceptable as an Oxford comma but that wasn't an Oxford comma), using "This" in reference to some fact mentioned in a different paragraph and to start a new paragraph, ascribing the ability to believe to inanimate entities, the list goes on! There are 11 incidents of the word "but" in the thing - surely he could have thought of another word?? I almost expected to find "alot" in there somewhere. Somebody get me my red pen!
  18. Trigger Shoe And Handstop

    Ah - I see. I must admit to thinking your admission to accidental let-offs might have been a closer reference to a hair trigger...
  19. Trigger Shoe And Handstop

    Chris, you should check eBay for something that will sort your problem too...
  20. Explosions In London

    I gather they've taken the mobile networks down in the area - I guess in case the explosions were triggered by a mobile. If you need to contact anyone, I'd suggest email or land-line phone. They are all still working. got an email saying this:
  21. Old .22 1813 Barrel And Action

    I'd be wary about regularly undoing bolts and swapping stocks - they're sure to wear the threads eventually and I'm not sure what the implications of re-tapping an action are.
  22. Left Handed .22

    Ummm, if it's unique, how can you have two of them?
  23. Aberdeen University

    surely your new FWB sights are under warranty? You only got them a couple of years ago, didn't you?
  24. 2013 Tube

    Does a short barrel significantly effect the centre of mass? Could that be why he finds it more sensitive to flyers? A similar muscle twitch might result in more barrel movement in the shorter rifle than the other, mightn't it?

    I wonder why not?
