BRACES of Bristol - Mauser M12 with Schmidt & Bender 2.5-10x56 Illuminated Scope
  1. They sika him here, they sika him there..... see what I did there?? Oh, never mind 😂😂

    Unusually for me..... just a very brief post for today!! Do you think there’s a scientific equation that says: DAY OUT IN CAR - RIFLE AT HOME = DEER Lovely lunch out with the Missus and the Lab at a favourite local lunch spot - wander out the pub to walk off the unexpected calories of a...
  2. Vortex Strike Eagle 5-25 x 56 - answers on a postcard....

    How’do! (kinda feel like I should have done today’s questions in one thread but hey ho.... ha ha) Ok - I won’t bore you with the full story - Bergara B14 HMR in .308 arriving this weekend. Plan is to, amongst other activities, do some target work out to circa 1000 yards - nothing special, just...
  3. Bergera B14 HMR .308 - round thoughts......

    How’do! After much debating and consideration of numerous plans and ideas I’ve decided to opt for my second .308 as a Bergera B14 HMR - duly ordered and hopefully arriving in my local RFD this Saturday. Plan, in the short term at least, is to use the rifle for target work out to 1000 yards...
  4. Tikka barrel change..... aka (yet) another pick of the collective brain cell.....

    How’do! Think this is the right section for such a question! As part of my ongoing process of getting onto much longer range work with a .308 I’m basically thinking out loud with various ideas and hope someone that is wise in the ways of what a gunsmith can do will be able to keep me right...
  5. Sold: LH .308 wanted.... details within!!

    How’do!! Just thought I’d throw this out there on the off chance that someone sees something I’ve missed, knows of something for sale not via the usual web sources or (as happened when I put a similar add up for a LH .223!) this add gives someone a nudge to sell something sat in the...
  6. Long range .308.... in “cack-handed”.... 😳😂

    Now then! I’m just after a few thoughts - preferably from personal experience! Just had a variation granted for a second .308 and wanting to buy something with a heavy target style barrel for longer range work - planning to get some decent range time in once all this lockdown what not is done...
  7. Is anyone wise in the way of pickup canopies?!

    How’do! Perhaps an odd question but here goes - recently bought a used Nissan Navara Pickup which came complete with a matching canopy. The vehicle came to me via an SD member and from a friend of his beforehand but that guy also bought it used from a Ford Dealer so no knowledge of the original...
  8. Monocular advice

    How’do! Trust this finds you all well. Ok - the short version is I’m after some advice on the purchase of a decent monocular - ideally with a budget of around £500 (I appreciate it probably isn’t as straight forward as a £1000 set of binos should be half bat as I’m only buying half.... 😂😂) ...
  9. Vehicle/pickup related advice.....

    How’do!! This seems the most logical place to post this question but, I guess, only time will tell!!:D So, I’ve recently purchased a 2009 Nissan Navara pickup (from a rather helpful SD member in fairness but that’s another story!!) and I’ve been looking into installing or buying some kind of...
  10. Your goose is cooked..... well, not quite yet.....

    How’do! Trust this finds you all well. Time for a typically long winded, meandering set of newbie questions..... :-|:lol: Ok - so the basic sketch - two lots of goose related advice please. First job (which I should have really done last season but never stopped with other things) my...
  11. Sold: Pickup up to £5000

    How’do! Just having a nose about but ready to buy if the right thing is around. Looking for a pickup or 4x4. Budget upto £5,000. More concerned that it’s mechanically sound rather than cosmetically only real caveat is needs to be something that will comfortably tow over 2 tonnes. Preferably...
  12. Advice on the Sale/Transfer of Weapons during Lockdown

    Hi All, Just wanted to post this as a separate thread to my previous one asking for advice and ideally experience of the current situation transferring weapons during the Covid Lockdown. Quick explanation and then the response from Police Scotland. Colleague at work has three shotguns on his...
  13. Thinking out loud.... (well typing anyways!)

    How’do! Trust this finds you all well and washing your hands and staying in the house and what not. Right, I hope this first bit doesn’t sound too rude (but!!) - ideally I’m looking for anyone who can actually point me towards some published guidance or anyone who has current experience of the...
  14. Sold: Harris BiPod S-BRM

    How’do! For sale - Harris Bipod Model “S-BRM” - £50 posted So, this is the 6”-9” model with the swivel base and the notched legs. It’s a used item with a few little scratches and marks - hence less than 1/2 price of a new one! Selling as it’s two low for me & I’ve just bought a brand new...
  15. No wonder the country is in a mess......

    They do say that you shouldn’t mock the afflicted..... Well, apparently that’s what some folks say - as a young 16 year old I was told something very different by the fine upstanding fellows of HM Forces..... anyways... I digress.... :old: I was sent this screenshot today from my best old...
  16. Metric for imperial.....

    How’do! Hopefully a fairly straightforward question and one that has, no doubt, been asked before! If my FAC states that I am allowed to hold “x” amount of .233 ammunition and I therefore allowed to also buy 5.56mm ammunition or would that have to be a separate entry on my certificate? Ha -...
  17. NV..... and another pick of the Collective Brain..... aka “searching for light in the darkness”

    How’do! Is it just me, or does everyone check that autocorrect doesn’t insert “Brian” before posting something to include the word “brain”...... anyways...... Ok - so - after some advice, for a change! I’m wanting to get a NV setup underway and have been advised, as it’ll be a fairly tight...
  18. Seeing as we all like to complain so much.....

    How’do! Theres half a chance this will be a slightly shorter post than normal but I’ll try :old: :rofl: I often read tales on here of nightmare with the various organisations with which we are forced to interact, the trials and tribulations of the almost postcode lottery nature of dealing with...
  19. Sold: LH .223 Package

    How’do!! Variation successfully and swiftly granted by the lovely folks at my local FLO so I’m on the hunt for a .223 package in, as the title suggests, the awkward Lefty style. Pain in the bum, but until such time as eye swap surgery is available of the NHS, it is what it is!!:rofl: Sorry, I...
  20. 3rd in command vice assistant trainee gillie..... a most unexpected day out!

    How’do! Ok - before I begin - if you’ve thought any of my other posts could be a little “long” - this one has chance to turn into a wee novel...... :old::rofl: As anyone who’s paid much attention to several of my earlier posts I’ve been seeking opportunities to learn as much as an opportunity...
