  1. So, Jimmy Kiwi could have 10 semi auto rifles in his home, declare and claim compo on 3, keep the rest and the NZ government would be none the wiser ? And they say US gun laws are crazy !
  2. Therefore, Mr Moderator, may I respectfully suggest that a metal detecting section seems to have a good deal of support ? (And it was a "fishing equipment for sale" section..........just saying.saying.)
  3. It will go to a narrow win by full referendum, followed by nearly 3 years of negotiation, endless infighting and a lengthy extension before there's a section called "Here treasure, treasure, treasure !"
  4. I don't know if his parents didn't show him enough attention or what, but I can't work out what's wrong with that twat.........apart from being full of his own self-importance, obviously. He's SOOOOO committed to animal welfare that he only 'went vegan' two months ago !
  5. I recently read about feral goat control in NZ. A 'standard' rifle allows one shot, the herd scatters and you schlep miles across rough terrain to locate them again, ready to pop the next one. Repeat as nauseum, until the herd is whittled down sufficiently. For the guys in that situation, a rapid fire weapon is first choice, and with good reason.
  6. Welcome to both of you ! If you want to run your dog, you'll find plenty of like-minded here !
  7. Some nice shooting there, pal ! Paramount intro too !
  8. I think that ship has already sailed, mate. The old Cold War, as we knew it, has ended and a new war is taking its place - the war between Islam, and what it sees as it's enemies, is growing and spreading.
  9. I think Wilf has perfectly summed the situation up, with his "oil and water" analogy......... In my view, Islam is incompatible with the 'Western' lifestyle in general, and democracy, in particular. We have open discussions about the relevance and importance of religion - Islam tolerates no dissent, and views itself as superior to all other beliefs, which it attempts to eradicate. I am an an atheist (intolerable to a Muslim !), but I can equally decide to follow any faith, of my own choosing, if I see fit - apostasy is punishable by death in the Muslim world. Here, men and women are essentially equal - Muslim women are second class citizens within their own community. A British woman can marry anyone she chooses - a Muslim girl has her husband chosen, again dissent is not tolerated. Muslim women have little, if any, property or divorce rights, and are kept in their own native-language enclaves, lest they be "corrupted by our decadence". Muslims have little respect Western laws, and insist that their Sharia should be the dominant system - thus see themselves as above the law, since their rules were handed down by Allah himself (apparently). We have elected governments, voted for freely and fairly - Muslim countries tend to be ruled by authoritarian despots, who strictly enforced their one and only religion. I could go on and on, but take a quick read of the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.........Islam contravenes every one of them ! My last word will go to King Fahd of Saudi Arabia....... “The Democratic system that is predominant in the world is not a suitable system for the peoples of our region. … The system of free elections is not suitable to our country.”
  10. Thanks guys - it's been an education ! I've found all I need to know elsewhere.............
  11. I still have my first air rifle, a Stoeger X20S, but she suffered a broken spring a little while ago. My friend fitted a Titan 11, but it's left the gun 'rather twangy', shall we say. He suggested that I re-lube, as he only uses it very, very sparingly. I can strip the old girl down, so thought I'd do it myself this time, but I'm not sure which lubricant to use where. The most appropriate items I have at my disposal are Abbey moly, lithium grease and a good quality gun oil. Which parts should I lube (with what), and which not ? I know which part is which, but pease bear in mind that I'm Life President of the " I don't do technical" club ! So, assuming that I've cleaned and degreased everything, rest to start again, it's over to you, lads...... Thanks in advance.
  12. ........says the guy who posted about "Love Island hunk" - just saying like.
  13. Love Island hunk ? Did you write that yourself ?
