    Lp2 And Lp5 Valuation Rq'd

    Hi all, Due to poor health and no longer being able to shoot, I'm in the process of selling my LP2 and LP5 at the moment (down here in NZ) but have no idea of the current market value for 2nd hand target air pistols... Can someone give me a ballpark figure (or range) please :-) Don't want to ask too much, but don't want to give them away either...lol LP2 was bought from new and is as new (less than 5000 rds through it)...LP5 is a little older but was owned by one of the GB sport pistol team members and is in good condition...both were serviced before I moved here... Cheers for any help in advance... Rgds Ant

    <sighs>....no worries guys - will look elsewhere...thanks for your erm...help...to the individual who PM'd me with a sensible suggestion on where to look...many thanks. PS 'Why would a suggested price what an item would fetch in the UK have much resemblance to your prices in NZ' Because it is a very small market for smallbore down here, therefore we tend to pay European market prices (plus transportation/import duty costs etc)...everything is shipped in and therefore comparable....all I need to do is factor in the strong $...

    One of the things I've noticed is that the view new content page only seems to display 'new' threads but not new posts to a previously read thread. Is there some other setting or new function I need to use? Not sure if it's my age or Cornish roots showing

    Hi Neil, just tried to add an attachment to a thread, unfortunately didn't seem to work. Where you browse for the attachment, there is a message saying global space left: 0bytes, which seems to suggest there is no space to add attachments. Any thoughts? Cheers Mr D

    Yes there was, looks like you've lost the 100kb per file and is now per thread! The joys of setting up a new system I suppose.

    I'm Looking For ....

    Just had a quick look at the guide. Figure 1.5 on page 10 is a little bit worrying. Would you really adopt the correct grip (as shown) with your finger on the trigger?

    How about a Stirton Forum Auction Advertise it for say a week, the highest bidder gets it (and helps out one of our CW team members)!

  18. New sight as well as a new stock - your new job is obviously paying you too much Simon. PS Colin and Donna have finally sent me your entry form for the L&M open in June, I'll forward it onto you tomorrow.
  19. Which organisation governs the winter biathlon? I believe (though I hope I misheard the quote at the October council meeting) a governing body cannot govern both the summer and winter olympic events. Therefore, the summer and winter biathlons must be governed by different contolling bodies! ie the ISSF can only govern one of the biathlon events. It would be an interesting event to watch though - (oh to be 15 years younger when I used to run in cross country events. Might have seriously considered taking up the this new discipline - would struggle to run to the end of the road these days).

    Air Pistol

    Hi Neil, LRC were doing a special kit aimed at juniors a short while ago. Scout units and the likes. I seem to remember a light weight Gamo pistol, very cheap. An excellent pistol to start with, very easy to use and no pre-charge cylinder to worry about. A good cheap way to learn the basics before up grading to pre-charged pistols. regards Ant
  22. Hi, we are a newley home office approved club and are on the scrounge already! currently looking for any old and unused shooting equipment that may be lying around the various club houses across the country. Old jackets, slings, mats etc. Any donation would be greatly received. I may be able to raise some renumeration for the slightly higher value items such as scopes, though we do have limited funds at present. If you think you can help, please leave a message so I can get back to you to exchange contact details etc. With many thanks in advance. Antony
