Title: Good afternoon one and all.
Post by: sandyman001 on August 25, 2017, 06:25:14 PM
Good afternoon/Evening and or morning.

I've been reading this forum as a guest for a while now and finally have gotten of my fat back side to sign up.

Based in Wiltshire for my sins been shooting since 1975 with a few long breaks in between due to work.

I'm a avid collector of rifles if it looks nice I'll buy it the only down side is the wife she is way passed being annoyed at finding rifles hidden in the house lol.

My latest rifle is a HW100 KT in Lamanate very nice looking bought to complement the Daystate Saxon stock,I've not had a chance to give her much of a run out as I had a mini stroke last week that kind of trashed my two weeks off. I have how ever given her a bit of bling a nice Rowan end cap with matching silver sling swivels and all capped off with a nice Bi Athalon cocking Handel.

A strange thing for me putting bling on a rifle being stuck indoors tends to mess with you mind a bit.

Hiya sandyman001, and a very warm welcome onto our Planet.

We may be a small World, but a friendlier and more laid back bunch of inhabitants you could not find anywhere in the Galaxy, so please don't be afraid of joining in with the discussions and banter.....everyone's input and opinion is welcomed and valid on Planet Airgun.


I love the fact that you buy rifles without your wife's knowledge or blessing....every man has the right to satisfy his 'airgun urge' and fill that 'Naughty Box'....and anyway, I bet there's plenty of dresses, shoes, handbags and the like that's she's bought secretly too!! 8)

All the best, Gareth. ;)

Sandyman , what are your shooting interests ?
Title: Re: Good afternoon one and all.
Post by: sandyman001 on August 26, 2017, 01:15:22 PM
Why thank you for the words of welcome.

My shooting interests are mainly target these days trying to get a permission where I live is almost impossible I have one small one that sadly was shot dry by several chaps who did not have permission to use it.

I try and shoot three time a week the range I use is daft though it shouts at 1600hrs in the week a right pain when you work I've taken to going in to work at 630 so that I can get away and have a small ammount of time on the range.

Yep and lots of idiots shooting on Salisbury plain with out permission same for all the farms around here. It spoils it for genuine shooters who care about our sport.

Nope never will onwards and upwards spent a couple of hours last night removing the heads from my plaster of Paris men The Russians lost to the Germans however team UK spotted a change in the wind and walked all over the Russian bear. Tonight if the latest batch are dry enough it will be UK v USA.

Nice one, Sandy!

Perhaps you can run some simulations based on North Korea vs. The Rest of the World and let us know if we need to stock up on tinned food and tin foil hats.
