Sg Police Interview, Well Timmed!

This is a first for myself joining a BLOG! Just created a profile yesterday. Not that tecno minded so I thought I'd give it a try.   I submitted my SG application to our Licencing Dept at Northern Constabulary, and was delighted at the speed of the response! Two days after submitting the application my referee was on the phone to say that he'd been contacted and he'd done the nesscary. Working offshore i was shocked when the wife told me that later that week they had being on the phone to arrange an interview and inspect me storeage facilities. With the cabnet still in the garage, it was strait home to get it fitted in position the week before christmas. Quite chuffed with my efforts, I settled into what I thought would be a relaxing family christmas when to my suprise on boxing day night, there was a knock at the door. Anwsering it with a housefull of guests and a large dram in hand there stood to of the constabularys finest. Inviting them in, the interview was progressing nicely through the officers check list until the question arose, "So Mr Bisset, do you drink?" with a bottle on the table and a glass in hand, "Sociably" was the anwser, all the time thinking - "dont pop your head into the kitchen." Well within a week, and two days after i arrived back at work the cretificate arrived. I've now got days to go before i can get along to our local shop in Inverness to pick up the Bettinsoli i left a deposit on. More about that one soon.   I am a very impatiant person....... Think a compasionate leave might be in order???

Age to own a rifle

My son has just turned 18 and is nagging me to buy him a rifle. I wasn't sure what age you have to be to own a rifle. Does anyone know what the right age is to own a rifle?

Fox Snaring

I just bought snare wire for snaring foxes, but i just figured out that the wire is not flexible enough. When i make the snare and put my hand in through the loop to test it the wire kinks back and the loop loosens.I was wondering is there a such thing as small gadget to put on the wire to stop it from loosening?

Dimmer switch

I've just bought a new hunting lamp that came with a red filter. I went hunting with a friend who had a lamp with a dimmer switch and a red filter and it worked a lot better than my own. I heard that a red filter and a dimmer switch is a good combination. The lamp didn't come with a dimmer switch so i was wondering if it was possible to buy a dimmer switch and fit it on the lamp?

Webley Xocet problem

i have owned a webley xocet for about 5 years now, i have a hawke 4-12X40 scope on it and it seemed to do ok on it, until recently when i had to re-zero it again and i had to adjust the verticle adjustment so it was screwed all the way in just for it to be about 2 inches away from the target, i zero'ed it in at about 50 yards. i also took it apart the other day and unscrewed the trigger pull weight adjustment screw all the way out but i screwed it back in, would this have an effect on the performance of the air rifle or is it nothing to be worried about? thanks Aaron
