    Mutts nuts worry

    We are not 'dog' people. I'm looking after an approximately 10 month old Papillon puppy that my son bought before he got a job working away. I'm told Papillons are related to terriers so thought this might be a place to ask some advice, please forgive me if this is in the wrong section. The dog likes to sleep on his back with legs akimbo and we can't help but notice this marking because his underside skin colour is otherwise all pink. He has a small amount of similar colour near his nose if that makes any difference. Should we be worried about this?

    Nitesite Wolf

    It partly depends on your scope - ideally it will focus down to 10 meters for ratting. If it doesn't you may find that although your scope focuses for ratting by the human eye - it might not focus close enough for the low light camera because Infra Red light focuses closer than daylight or lamping light. However since it currently focuses OK for the viper it will likely be OK for any other add on too. By the way have you considered my add on NV builds? Somewhat cheaper than the Wolf because it doesn't come in a case and I don't need to factor in a profit margin for shops.

    Trail XQ50 Rabbit Shooting

    Excellent video showing the capability of the thermal device. As for the shots taken it looked like very succesfull vermin clearing to me. I'll wager Mr.Farmer was a very happy chappy. A shooter who pees about trying for perfect small kill zone shots would lose several windows of opportunity to destroy the vermin in favour of congratulating himself on shot placement - which in my opinion is better suited to target shooting where time can be taken to accurately assess windage and range. I have to agree the chap complaining comes across as someone who feels very important.

    Sako Quad .17HMR - or action alone wanted

    Still looking for one with a 15" or 16" barrel preferred if there is life left in it.
  9. Sako Quad .17HMR - or action alone wanted View Advert Does anyone have a 17HMR Sako Quad varmint they are thinking about dumping, possibly nearing its shot out stage? I'm not much bothered about its visual condition. I currently have a spare HMR varmint barrel and sound mod on my ticket as a separate firearm that accompanies my 22lr Sako Quad, and rather like the idea of getting another action to make it a complete rifle as I constantly swap it between 22LR and HMR – with relative scope swaps too that usually needs a zero check and adjust. I have not yet put in for a variation to acquire another HMR but will be applying for one as a dedicated night vision rifle. Doing it this way would allow me to decide if I like it with the barrel it comes with – or my existing barrel which was replaced about two years ago when my original got shot out after about 7000 rounds. Apparently the Varmint barrel fitting spigot is a different size than heavy types. Game on chaps - who has a redundant .17HMR Sako Quad or action. I might be able to take one that was registered into the system as a .22 if you scrap it and sell it via an RFD - but that will depend on if that is permissable. Well done Leicester Firearms Licencing. I delivered the variation application by hand on Monday afternoon and the ticket with authority to acquire a .17HMR got here today.

    .22 Long accuracy

    RWS hollow points are seriously consitent in my Sako Quad, but have piss poor knock down effect on quarry because the tiny hollow is about as much use a chocolate fireguard.

    FAC licensing

    There's a bit more here: Changes to the Firearms Act 1968 From 14 July 2014, if a person receives a suspended sentence of 3 months or more they will not be able to purchase or possess a firearm or ammunition for a period of 5 years from the second day after sentence. From 14 July 2014, a person who has served or received a criminal sentence will not be able to possess an antique firearm. The prohibition applies to anyone who has served a custodial sentence of more than 3 years or has served a custodial sentence, or received a suspended sentence, of between 3 months and 3 years.

    FAC licensing

    Found this: I'd suggest waiting a couple of years. Any person sentenced to serve between three months and three years, (or who has been given a suspended sentence of this duration) is prohibited from possessing any firearm for a period of five years.

    Notts doorman

    I think the SIA will have his ticket off him if they see the video and know who he is. He's seen to be well into the road rather than within the club boundary. I got told last week that security staff are not even allowed to restrain anyone now. My brother has a security patrol firm and keeps his guns at an RFD since his FEO advised him that if anyone makes a complaint he touched them they'd be round for his rifles.

    Lamp shy

    I find using minimal light is effective but most people seem to want much more than is needed for the particular range they are shooting at. Sure the back stop needs viewing sometimes but if your on a familiar venue that you know is safe then just enough is good enough. EDIT: dunno how this post got in this qouted bit
