multitasking

Well the tea lady thought it was funny!

What a cracking email to get in the morning

This came from my Kiwi mate this morning;





"Hey John Me and Dave went out last weekend and got 3 stags He shot 2 there his on my Range Rover and the one I shot is in the boot of his Range RoverHe shot a 9 and a 12 and I got a 10 I missed the 2 hinds that were with my stag.All three were neck shots his two were standing there and he ended up with a sniper eye and my one was on the run We had the local Shannon kids running and screaming as we drove through town with his 12 on the bonnet."







Can you imagine dragging something off the hill thats too big to fit in a Range Rover? I can only dream!

My weekend was spent with a bit of

Gardening and a bit of this;





Yes its a bit wobbly and not the best but at least I was outdoors and not in an office, 1x .275 Rigby and me but sadly no deer!



Now we have had some sunshine it falls to me to bring you a once in a lifetime BBQ offer;


An offer NOT to be missed! I thought this was a hoax at first... Summer 2009 is almost here. To celebrate this many supermarket stores are giving away free barbecues to all that can go and collect them. You can get a free BBQ from any of the following stores.
· ASDA · Morrison's · Costco · Kwik Save · Somerfield · Aldi · Sainsbury · Tesco · Iceland · Lidl
All BBQs come with a higher shelf which can be used for keeping things warm!
PLEASE NOTE: Some stores may charge a £1 administration fee.
If you wish to see a picture of this product please scroll down.



One mention of the BBQ and its raining again!

Its called a salary because thats what you earn!

Well this came as NO SURPRISE did it!

Reforming of MPs allowances causes disbelief amongst the population eh? Well if they want an attendance allowance for going to work then are they going to forgo their salaries?

Thats what they are for, the money grabbing low lifes need to realise that spaffing away our hard earned cash on IT systems that dont work, second homes and flat screen televisions, unpopular wars assisting unpopular allies is all paid for by the tax paying productive minority that seem to be contributing to the country rather than the leeches and wasters amongst us that are net receivers, yes Scotland that actually rather sadly points at you!
That said although I contract its to a public body and the financial control exercised puts parliament to shame!
Time for a few changes?

A TV programme missed but so much more gained

Last night after a light lunch in Town with Mr FM I spent the evening perusing some real gun porn, Broomhandle Mausers at the Bethlehem hospital at Lambeth for the criminally insane or Bedlam as it was known!

Now not that last night was chaos although the traditional post lecture Ruby is still burning at at least one end, and of course there was some serious blimping and fondling close on heavy petting that took place, look below to see what I mean;
Just one of many and a cracking lecture to boot;

Nice arent they? I actually had a cabby with a nice one many years ago when Bisley was Mecca and had proper pistol ranges! If only eh?

And now GMK say I can supply RCBS equipment so happy days, next the RFD files eh?

They even came with stocks;

Something for the weekend?

I suppose I could do something like this but I think the Lada Niva at the beginning is a quality rough and tough beast, I'm probably collecting logs for next season and also sorting out feeders etc.

Ah what the hell, it looks fun!

With thanks to Felinis for this one;

A Florida couple, both well into their 80s, goes to a sex therapist's office.The doctor asks, 'What can I do for you?'The man says, 'Will you watch us have sexual intercourse?'The doctor raises both eyebrows, but he is so amazed that such anelderly couple is asking for sexual advice that he agrees.
When the couple finishes, the doctor says , 'There's absolutelynothing wrong with the way you have intercourse.'
He thanks them for coming, he wishes them good luck, he charges them$50 and he says good bye.
The nex t week, the same couple returns and asks the sex therapist towatch again. The sex therapist is a bit puzzled, but agrees.
This happens several weeks in a row.
The couple makes an appointment, has intercourse with no problems,pays the doctor, then leave.Finally, after 3 months of this routine, the doctor says, 'I'm sorry,but I have to ask. Just what are you trying to find out?'
The man says, 'We're not trying to find out anything.
She's married so we can't go to her house.
I'm married and we can't go to my house.
The Holiday Inn charges $98.
The Hilton charges $139.
We do it here for $50, andI get $43 back from Medicare.


A bank holiday weekend has passed and back at my desk to recover, selling to the midlanders can be hard work, they are tighter than a Spurs Chairman;

Back on the horse I suppose part 2


Richard came over this afternoon and we spent a little time handloading for his deer rifle followed by Goose egg banjos and copious mugs of tea.

A quick session to check the difference between the military ammo;


















This compared reasonably well to the handloads, I'm curious if the barrel twist/bullet weight combo is been driven too fast for real accuracy but its still minute of deer at 100 yards;




















The weather was appalling weather especially so when I wanted too shoot my Rigby. I couldnt resist however and decided to have a pop with a 7x57/.275. The scope is decidedly odd and needs investigation but despite only a quick boresight I put all 5 of the 140 grain pills in the kill area with one pulled;
It was so wet that the stick on targets fell off after about 5 shots.



The 175 grain round nose bullets by Federal printed left on the edge of the target and the rifle is set up for shooting from either a high seat or standing. I am looking forward to stalking with his next week and I will use the original Rigby ammo loaded in Norma brass.




Richards 1022 proved to be acceptably accurate, I think the bunnies round his way will be suffering;

Back on the horse I suppose

Things are getting back to normal here so I thought you could do with cheering up, I certainly do and as the bank holiday weekend approaches and the impending doom that is Kelmarsh Country Fair looms ever closer.

Its not that I'm not looking forward to meeting customers again, selling great products to people who want the best for their dogs, its the living in a tent for the weekend and going back to my pikey roots as the didicoy that I truly am!

Its part of my past I try hard to suppress but I am possibly part carny!

Anyway glad to be back and looking forward to seeing some muddy wellies on the weekend!
