My last tub of Unique cost me £39.50 for 454g / 1lb

Re: Into the woods.......

I'd love to Vern but I can't be arsed with the travails and grief of air travel these days. My last flight to Munich 10 years ago peed me off so much I decided that was it, no more air travel for me.
Thanks for the offer though, very kind of you.

I do like it a lot, especially shooting it offhand, though my grouping was a lot better from the rest. I need to use a proper bullseye target next time.

Re: Head count

I had this 96/11 for a number of years until I swapped it last year for a Parker Hale 451 Volunteer. My friend who owns it now calls it his laser rifle, it is a very accurate weapon.
