Mornin gents.

Grey overcast skies with a chance of scattered showers with temps in low 70s now and might go to low 80s. Everything is supposed to change to lows in the low 40s and highs in the low 60s starting Thursday.

Hope everybody in the path of Michael stays safe.

Sorry to hear that buddy! Stay safe!

If anyone is interested, got my FastFire red dot last Thursday and got it mounted on my Benelli Supernova slug slinger

Dang Scrummy! I didn't think you could have shotguns like that in the UK. I'd use that for 3-gun heavy metal, home defense, and room entries. That thing is awesome.

Heya BF,

Yeah, shotguns with a limited capacity (2+1 or less) are not so difficult in the UK, relatively easy license (Shotgun Certificate)

Harder to get (Firearm certificate)
Capacity of 4 or more
Shorter than 24" barrel (If something like a O/U or S/S)

Pumps and semi's have to have at least a 24" barrel and 40" length overall (Otherwise generally prohibited) though you can have a lever action that's shorter...

Also, slug and shells with less than 5 pellets and over a certain size need a firearm certificate.

But, anyway, thanks very much BF! Probably use it for what we call Target Shotgun (Falling plates with birdshot and turning targets with slug) and take it for fox drives. It is a fun piece of kit without the sight, I think now it might be even better!

Scrummy

Morning All,

Bright, warm,sunny, most unlike autumn. Still got supplier issues with bathroom - might cabosh the stalking.

Yeah is a pain. The SGC isn't a problem. Get it and buy what you like.

Firearm Certificate, you need to justify with "good reason" for each gun you buy and can come with "conditions" for limiting usage. For example:

My 9.3x62 I can use on any range, land I have permission to shoot over and for any legal quarry. No problem with that. My Beneli, which use to have a 2+1 capacity was on a shotgun certificate and I could use anywhere for anything provided legal (Ducks, pigeons, crows, clays, practical shotgun). Now it has a higher capacity and on a Firearms certificate, it is only conditioned for use as practical shotgun and clay targets.

There's no law on capacity restriction for shooting pests (game birds and waterfowl do) but because when I put in permission to vary my FAC to have a shotgun with capacity of greater than 2+1 and didn't put in a letter saying I had permission to shoot vermin (rabbits, crows, pigeons etc) I can't use the gun to to do that when I used to. Crazy!

Sorry, rant over!

I would hate that the goobermint has to decide what is "good reason"

Mornin gents.

I woke up to a dark house this AM. No power. Couldn't flush toilets before I took a quick shower to preserve water pressure for the shower. Ate cold Pop Tarts for breakfast, and no HOT TEA; that really bummed Mrs.BF. Power came on just before I left for work. Did give Mrs. BF and I pause to think about emergency preparations like a cook stove, better candles, more and better battery powered lights, maybe a few other things too.

It's cloudy, windy (probably why we lost power), and in the mid 50s going to low 60s. Fall has jumped on us with both feet. Take that all you six and eight legged blood suckers.

I also have an issue with the gooberment trying to tell me what I do or don't need. Especially when they refuse to listen to me (us) when we tell them what they can and can't do.

When we got our generator, I thought about such a system. The problem is the Propane Co.s will not deliver to my house because of the driveway, and I don't feel like hauling, filling and connecting a bunch of 50 gallon tanks that would rarely be used. It would be nice though.

I'd still go the propane route.  Propane doesn't age, especially like the ethanol gas does.  For reliable "blue moon" use I'd pick propane....

I have been checking into wind turbine power. The tower is the most expensive part, and it's a huge expense, and it's not something I want to cut corners on.

That is very true! I would not fancy something like that falling near property or loved ones!
