I'm back to work.

Hey Scrummy, you get your permission slip yet, and how'd you do on the match?

Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Evening all,

Shot match yesterday with club guns. It did not go well...

Back at Bisley this morning and shot the McQueen: basically a 300 yd sniper challenge. Targets only show for 3 seconds in an unknown window. First time shot with a borrowed rifle. Over estimated the wind hold but good fun

Sounds like a fun match.

I shot our club match Saturday. I sucked. Had been shooting the Glock 22 in class all week and then shifted to a Sig X5 for the match without practice; big difference in the triggers.

I GOT SOME GREAT NEWS LAST EVENING!!!!

I went over to my daughter's house last evening to re-claim my 40V cordless yard tools (hedge trimmer and blower).  I walked in to find my Daughter's dog had returned!!!!

June ran off due to JULY 4th fireworks and being left un-attended in the fenced backyard.

The dog, a beautiful 3 year old German Short Hair Pointer, was missing for 5 days.  My daughter had Animal Control, SPCA, and about 100+ people all on the lookout and 100s of posts on Facebook.

It was 3 days before she started getting sightings and they were all in the same area.  it was about 3/4 of a mile from the her house.  Since it had rained twice, on the advice of the Animal Control Officer, She got a favorite blanket and cut it up into small pieces and mixed it with dogfood.  She then walked from her house to the area where the dog had been spotted, leaving a trail for the dog to follow every 7 to 10 paces.  She then set out food and water where the dog had been spotted.  She stayed there for hours then returned home to feed the kids.  later she returned and something had gotten the food.

She called and waited to no avail.  She finally returned home to put the kids to bed.  She was laying in bed trying to sleep about midnight that night and heard the dog yelping and wailing and "the rocket" came blasting back into the backyard and body slamming the back door.  My daughter was there in a flash and there was pure pandemonium for several minutes, the dog was crying as hard as my daughter.

When everyone finally calmed down she fed and watered the dog who immediately inhaled all that was offered.  They both then collapsed on the livingroom floor and went right to sleep, together....

My daughter hadn't gotten 10 hours of sleep in the preceding 4 days so both slept like the dead...

The dog now won't let her out of her sight.....  I sure did my heart good seeing them together again!!!!

That and I can stop worrying about my daughter plotting the demise of my Ex..... Whatever

Good morning folks,

 

Nice day here, too nice to be in the office.

 

Back on the range tomorrow though, just a range day. Hoping my renewed certificate will be back through the door when I get home.

Great news on the dog, BP!

Bud, I'm thrilled your daughter's dog returned home. I've already called Mrs. BF and told her, and she is thrilled as she has worried about your daughter's dog too.

Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

So Scrummy, what's the status on your guns until you get your new certificate? Do you have a window of use, or do they need to stay locked up, or in the possession of the police until the new certificate arrives?

Afternoon BF,

 

The status is this. You cannot be in possession of firearms in the UK without a valid certificate (some weird exceptions but pretty much a no-no). So, until the police get my paperwork back to me, I have to store my guns with a registered firearms dealer (RDF, like your FFL) or the police.

 

So, I’m waiting for a piece of paper….

So is there an overlap time so you don't have to haul your guns to the RDF or police before the certificate is reissued? Where are your guns now?

Currently guns with RFD. Apparently I didn't give the police enough time to renew my certificate. If I'd have given them 8-12 weeks notice I'd have had my new certificate before the old one lapsed (Apparently) my guns are currently with an RFD I trust...
