And give up the Mosin, the Enfield, the Turkish? The Romanian?

No thanks.

Yeah, it can be fun shooting something random from the range, but the idiosyncrasies of your own are what you learn to deal with and love.

Me, I'm knackered...work is just not letting up. Need a holiday. Very Happy

Av - agreed. The Romanian has a nice loose bolt action. The Mosin sticks. Etc, etc.

Our WWI rifles Turkish mouser, and pre-WWI martini henry, moison nagent and a pattern 14 British 303 all in perfect working condition and well looked after.

We had a number of standard rifles.

Honestly I loved the historicity of the military rifles and would like to still have them ... but would be limited to decommissioned.

However, cuz we had a recent awful experience with native wildlife we are now looking at getting relicensed and buying a 22. caliber bolt action .. and then we could euthanise injured wildlife and not watch them suffer till someone from 80kms away to do the deed.

Actually thinking of getting a .22 bolt action just for fun myself. Promised the guy who owns my usual range that if he opened a rifle bay I would get one. Very Happy

Sky & Av - it is awesome not having to ask the government permission to defend myself and Julie. Freedom rules!

Sky - you so need permission when it comes to what you defend yourself with, no?

I can't actually imagine ever needing to defend myself like that. It's just... not a concern? At all?

No more than you do 😉 or maybe a tiny bit more than you do.

Do you need to be licensed? Who issues that license? 😉

Are your firearms registered? With whom are they registered? 😉

😎 Two more than reasonable steps to firearms ownership here 😎

My Dad gave me a 12 gauge and a 22 rifle that he had inherited himself. They sat in the closet for several years and I finally got rid of them. Never even owned ammo for either.

I've had guns pointed at me, knives too. If I had had a loaded gun, someone might have died. I have always managed to talk my way around it, and everyone lived.

Sometimes I think I'd feel safer with a gun, but I haven't actually needed one for 58 years. Why start now?

A question got asked today about having a Person. Someone you're not married to, who is not impressed with you, who will ask the questions, who gets your world view, etc, and is ideally your gender. That's the problem for me. I've always related to men better. In fact the only person who fits the description is a male colleague (who I'm not attracted to). But I need a girl friend. Advice?

Surely it has to better living in a place where you don't need a gun. I'm a great believer in karma - be at peace with the world and the world will be at peace with you, sort of thing. Of course bad things do happen and I wouldn't go walking up a dark alley late at night thinking I was completely immune.

I'm worried the Gov.uk will cancel Christmas. A majority of people here it seems are disregarding 'no masks, no entry' zones. I was wearing a mask today and was constantly being 'looked at'. It made me feel oddly out of place. Anyway, fingers-crossed autumn/winter won't bring on a second wave.

The Government can cancel things like mad shopping, concerts, even church services. But surely they can't cancel snow, holly, sweaters, turkey, pumpkin pie, gifts, carols, hope, the baby Jesus, hot cocoa, decorating trees, and family.

That's what America needs. Mandatory gun safety training, and background checks. It's crazy that these aren't in place.
