Thread: Happy Christmas.... To me - from me.....!

  1. #1

    Cool Happy Christmas.... To me - from me.....!

    .....I had a bit of a blood rush to the head on Saturday, and decided that as I've been a good boy all year, I was going to treat myself to an early Christmas present (and in mitigation, it's my birthday later in December as well, so it was a joint prezzie...)

    I've been umming and aahing about upgrading one of my air rifles for a while, but after getting weathered off last Saturday, I thought "bugger it!" and p/ex'd my BSA Ultra......for a shiny new BSA r10 mkII .

    Got it Saturday, zeroed on Sunday, and nailed 2 rats with it on Monday night at a feeder on my mate's farm. Job's a good 'un!!

    Look out vermin, I'm a-comin to getcha.......

    Anyone else treating themselves for Christmas???

    Last year I gave in to the temptation of some Swarovski range-finding binos ... which were stupidly expensive, so they'll have to do for this year too.

    Which reminds me that I've got a Swaro laser range-finder monocular in the back of the cupboard, so if anyone wants it cheap just PM me.

    I've had a new scope and a new moderator, although in fairness I needed both (scope broken and mod rusty).
    Oh and a new jacket for stalking and walking the dog, because it was going cheap.
    No more presents for me!

    The better half generally gets me a voucher from the local gun shop. As I do from time to time, I've lost a knife whilst out and about, so I guess that'll be what the voucher goes towards. But on the "from me to me" front, a mate has just got a Lee Enfield Jungle Carbine, which is very nice. I'm thinking about a No4 Mk2. Perhaps a bit more useable, not been dragged though trenches or across Europe or over the Khyber Pass and won't dislocate my shoulder as much as his. As a bonus it'll probably shoot straighter than his too.
