    After 55 years of holes in paper, most [although not all] in or very close to the centre, I've finally started selling up the last of my pistols and all the kit that went with them.

    Four days ago I sold the Glock 17, today was farewell to the FAS 602: all with c. 1,000 rds each. The Knoblock and Gehmann optical bits went on Friday. Now I'm down to a couple of telecopies and stands, and a bag of bits such as ear defenders, most of which will undoubtedly go to the Jersey Pistol Club.

    When I think of the kit the OH and I had before the great "shredding" post-Dunblane, I could weep. However, strangely, saying goodbye to those last 2 doesn't seem to matter now.

    Where did I put those darts?
  2. Cheers for that. Will you let me know when you sell a car, or move house perhaps?
  3. Skint?.....want a tap?
  4. Get your gongs on eBay, arte et marte will save you!

    Oh, I just love it!

    True ARRSE sympathy :-D
  6. I know how it feels, down to my last rifle and that going next week, still made a decent donation to a couple of military charities, maybe you could consider helping there as well, seems sort of appropriate to me.
  7. Any plans to have a dump today?
