Re: A QUESTION - HONEST ANSWERS NOW...
Ian, just to make you feel worse about the UK gun laws,
my only current safe queen is a Browning 9mm pistol, my ex wife bought me it for christmas several years ago, i don';t know if thats the reason i haven't parted with it or the fact that i can't get a decent price for it. Ive advertised it, but the pistol market in germany is crap, nothing moving, and i'm not letting it go for a song. The browning is to heavey to carry hunting, and what goo is a hand gun in a safe? i use my S&W airlight TI in 38 special (+P) for all my hand gun work.
I did have a load of rifles i didn't use much, i sold them off end of last year beginning of this to finance workshop machinery.
Ive some old knock about rifles i use as estate rifles, but they get used a fair bit.
Ive even sold my close quarter boar, 9.3x62.. my only rifle at the mo is my trusty 30-06 Remington 700, and its the rifle i've hunted with the most over the last 15 years.
so no real safe queens there..
i do have some test beds though..
I'm playing with a project at the mo, which can't decide if its gonna be a 9.3 WSM or a 9.3 subsonic,probably end up with one of each. and i'm tinkering with re barreling remington 7400 and 7600's to 9.3x62.
