    Hi Peter,

    Roll on retirement if thats what it brings

    Welcome to the site, as Pippa says "Plenty of opinions" on here.

    Have to admit thats what makes it so interesting and such a good learning experience

    Plenty of Roe sunning themselves along the M5 today in your neck of the woods.

    Peter - welcome. And may I say how refreshing it is to see a newcomer to the forum take the time and trouble to introduce himself with a proper resume of his shooting life. I am sure you have a lot to offer your fellow members.
