Thread: What`s the chances?

  1. #1

    What`s the chances?

    A mate from the past invited me out for a days fishing on his boat.
    5.45am i leave my home to meet Paul at his house. On the way i pass a Roe buck laid on the verge, a quick glimpse has me thinking "I`m sure it`s still alive" so i go on a mile or so to where i can turn around.
    On getting back to the Buck a land rover is already there and i get out. "Is it still alive?" i ask. "Yes mate and you won`t believe it, i`ve brought the 22 but no ammo. I didn`t even bring a knife"
    "This is your lucky day as i have both" says i.
    With the deer dealt with the chap says
    "What`s the chances of that, i have no ammo and the next car along has?"
    Anymore strange coincidences??

    Maybe Basil was stopping off on the way back home to shoot bunnies on his local farm, or maybe his friend offered him a chance to get some bunnie bashing after they had finished fishing?. Either way DONT jump to conclusions, this happens too often on here.

    Maby it was only the ammo and a knife he had and no rifle.

    Not jumping to any conclusions Malc just asking why you need .22 ammo to go fishing.

    The chap in the land rover had the 22 and no ammo, i had the ammo and a knife but no 22. I had 2 bullets on the floor left over from the previous evenings excursion.

    This is what I was getting at. There have been a lot of comments made on here recently about not giving antis or your local constabulary any ammunition (excuse the pun) against shooters. As far as I am aware ammo left over from a previous excursion would not constitute reasonable grounds for having the ammo in your car.

    section 1 ammunition must be stored securely to
    prevent, so far as is reasonably practicable,
    unauthorised people taking or using them. Any
    other person who does not hold a firearm or
    shotgun certificate is included in the term
    ‘unauthorised’. When a gun or section 1
    ammunition is being used or the holder has the gun
    with him for some purpose connected with its use,
    transfer or sale, reasonable precautions must be
    taken for the safe custody of the gun(s) and
    section 1 ammunition.

    If we are all going to pulled up on our shortcomings then the rules must apply to us all and not just a few.
    Whilst I whole-heartedly support your quick and humane dispatch, I would humbly suggest that the thread be deleted and restarted using a little poetic license.

    I'm definitely not whiter than white.
    And it's not my license. Just trying to help before the rozzers come a knockin'. I've heard Avon and Somerset are buggers
