  2. Don't buy the one he used to shoot the sheriff
  3. :lol: Lost on the majority of under 40's mind....!!
  4. Nope. I've seen nicer cheaper guns. What a pretentious waste of cash.
  5. I don't know why Holts let things like this through - they're supposed to be firearms experts....

    This is not any sort of "sniper" equipment; its a standard 1950s No4 Mk2 thats had an after-market scope mount screwed on. The No22 scope in there is a common type of artillery optic (depending upon Mark number, used on 18 pdrs, 25 pdrs, 6 pdr anti-tank, 2 pdr anti-tank, etc). The No22 has no windage or elevation adjustment, so useless as a telescopic sight. It also appears to be on back to front, so the target would appear very small indeed....
  6. rubbish, there's a rap version of the song
  7. A crap version you mean. Some of us young'uns still recognise talent and have enough taste to find music from before our time.
  8. Some very nice Webley's on there. How could I purchase one as a presentation piece?
  9. The sheriff was in fact shot first by a chap called Bob from the Caribbean. Clapton only shot the corpse.
