    Air Quality - wood stoves - vehicles - farming

    I burn around 5 - 6 ton of peat a year, we only burn peat as there's no trees here and peat is free, nothing going stop me burning free fuel and we have some of the best air quality in the country. Hope no one sees the plumes of crap my old tractor churns out too, maybe I should get the right injector pump

    New MOT rules !!

    Why bother anyway, just buy new an trade in before three years.
  3. Mates Thai wife took the lot, he never even gets a look in. Anything not eaten goes to the dogs so no waste, even big fatties I save in the freezer for me and curry them. I was using subs, but my rfd gave me a deal so tried them, honestly they do the job well, though make a crack even with the mod. 60yds is my limit really .22 sub but then I have the .17hmr option, just 22's are a quarter of the price.

    Browning maxus

    I'm old school, and agree with Stavross, even if your told its looked after not had much through it etc, you'll never know for sure. For peace of mind I always buy new, no one is going to tell you it's been dropped or abused if they're trying to sell it! Maybe test it out a while before you part with cash if your really wanting it?
  5. As it was nice took the .22 out, using cci mini mags got these four around the 60yds mark, all headshots within 15 minutes. As I took the first photo and was about ready to pack up, one of their friends popped it's head out wanting to play, around the 40yds mark, I was happy to oblige. The difference in damage at 20yds difference is explosive.

    Next step

    I have a t-bolt in .17hmr and my mate has a .22wmr, my rifle only weighs about 4-5lbs and his weighs around 4lbs heavier, mine is composite and his wood stock, his barrel also seems a lot beefier, so could be that. I have an ASE mod and he has a Sak mod, the hmr is defiantly quieter, again this could just be the difference in the mods. I'm right on the money out to 150 yds+ on a calm day and he seems to struggle over 100yds, this could be our different capabilities, rounds etc, but I'm certainly sticking hmr.

    Neo-Prohibition? (1st May in Scotland)

    Seems mad to me a bottle of spirit is the same price as a bottle of strong cider now, madness at its finest.
