    Attitude

    I'm with you on that score. Last time I offered a freebie I barely got a thank-you, let alone anything else. Not that it was expected in the slightest, but a genuine display of appreciation wouldn't have gone amiss.

    Dog (!) rescue

    That's a good point. I hadn't considered that

    Dog (!) rescue

    You'd have thought Estonians would know a wolf when they saw it! Great story though, and a great ending

    Full-auto shotgun . . . .

    You'd want to make certain the safety was on before you shoved it down your trousers, wouldn't you??? :-|:lol:

    Full-auto shotgun . . . .

    Not quite sure I get the point of it, but it must be quite good fun to shoot at clays!!! At a guess, I'd say the gun has a key-type selector switch that adjusts the sear, or something? Never seen anything like it before though. Anyone else?

    My bad. I must be a little over-sensitive today. Maybe it's my ovaries, or something . . . :-|

    Average cost of your guns?

    My rifles have cost a lot less than £5k! My .22 CZ452 I bought brand new, £550 including scope and moderator. My .270 was around £350 (plus another £200-odd for the mod', and probably around the £600 mark for the two scopes it's worn since I got it) My .22-250 cost me £350 for the rifle, and...

    I've already apologised for the hijack, so I can do without the lecture, thanks

    Bu""er

    I had them fly over me at Blairgowrie this morning. Couldn't actually see them though, as the cloud was just too low. Bloody typical :mad:

    I'm not saying it's necessarily a bad thing, of course I'm not. My beef comes from it beginning to become an expectation and a pre-requisite, rather than a voluntary demonstration of a persons commitment to the sport

    I've known blokes with DSC1, 2, range warden qualifications, and who are on the fit and competent register that I wouldn't trust with a water pistol, let alone on their own with a rifle. All DSC proves to me is that you passed a test once

    Transport for the stalker?

    I have no argument with that. I'm a massive fan of 'old-style' 4x4. No faffing about with sensors, computers, overly-complicated electronics, and all that nonsense. Just give me a lever to pull that makes two big bits of metal go 'clunk' and I'm happy

    Seems to me that we're shooting ourselves in the foot with the increasing insistence on DSC for paid days. So much for it being a 'voluntary' qualification, hey? :-|
