Lost key

I keep my cabinet keys in a small safe. Last Thursday I needed to get into an ammo cabinet so took the key from the key cabinet and unlocked it and locked it when I was done. On Saturday I needed to get in the ammo cabinet again so went to the key safe for the key. However, the key was not in the ke...

Ross Mark III

Hello I have just bought a Ross rifle. It has had a life as there are wood repairs to the heel and toe of the butt and also behind the action. The front sight is missing the hood but has a few screws added. The bolt has a different number to the barrel but still has a PLY prefix. It does shoot very ...

Wearing shorts in winter.

Over recent years it has become more common to see men walking around wearing shorts no matter how cold it is. I think it started as a bet between two postmen as to who would stop wearing shorts first as winter approached. They carried on all through winter wearing shorts. My local postman is often ...

Re: More UK firearm restrictions

Well, the ban on .50 Calibre rifles has been dropped from the bill going through parliament for further consultations so they are safe for now. The MARS and lever release rifles are, however, going to be banned and will be collected from the legal owners and destroyed. Compensation will be paid. Due...

Re: Bisley Armistice Shoot

I am shooting in the HARC league in the standing deliberate. I came second in division 3 last time using my Mossberg M42-B lend-lease rifle. I don't think I will be appearing in division 1 any time soon. As you say, a bit of fun and also an excuse to get the old rifles to the range.
Regards
Peter.

Re: Bisley Armistice Shoot

Joe, yes I was using an SMLE though mine is a BSA dispersal rifle made in 1942 and not of WW1 vintage. The bayonet I used is dated 1917 so that was of the correct age.

Re: Bisley Armistice Shoot

The target is designed to confuse. I shot a bit low and got 2x5, 3x4 and 5x3. The course of fire for all the matches is attached.

Bisley Armistice Shoot

I went to Bisley over the weekend to take part in the Armistice Shoot to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War. There were five matches shot and a sixth being the aggregate of the five that were shot. I ended up in 35th place out of 115 completed entries. The matches were sho...

Sword stick

When my parents got married 79 years ago, in April 1939, they took the tenancy of a 210 acre farm here in Yorkshire. I was born and grew up on that farm. It was a bit out of the way and did not get electricity until 1953. I vaguely remember going to bed by candle and oil lamps. No heating, of course...
