try as i might, I can not get to grips with any search on the website, so can someone help please?

maybe a couple years ago there was a quite long thread on a very posh shotgun case being made. i would like to find it to see if i want to make one.
I typed in shotgun case on the top search bar, and got several ads for e cigarrettes, Thats despite having an ad blocker working, so thats me out.

Click search, then advanced. Try again. That is the old search function.

Well, I just trolled through the pics, and no denying its a very impressive labour of love, but my original post (which I had forgotten I'd made) is still very true;
My plastic box, which came FREE with the gun, can go anywhere I go, weighs about a dozen kilos less that that oak one, and saves me several hundred quid for ammo.

Shows how time is slipping by, i said 2 years ago, it was actually four :shock:
So I'm still looking for another project. :roll:

I find it very sad that a shotgun disturbs you greatly. If its through personal experience, that saddens me also, but if its through the scare mongering of politically correct propaganda, I'm gonna set the imaginary pmeumatismatist on you . 8) 8)

Heres a puzzle for you; a loaded gun sits on a kitchen table, at what time does it become dangerous?
:lol: :lol: :lol:

A shotgun. Or any gun. Loaded or not being an inanimate object is never inherently dangerous. The person handling it however...

When the person unfit to handle a gun placed it there without rendering it safe.

Boy, you've been reading too many American pro-gun sites. They're the people whose 2 year olds blow themselves to bits with daddy's "safe" loaded weapons. The Chicxulub meteor was just an inanimate object........

I'm a professional deerstalker. I use rifles most days of the week and shotguns most weekends. Guess what? None of those guns have ever gone off of their own volition. They are tools. Inanimate objects. They deserve respect and should be handled responsibly but no more so than a chainsaw or a planer thicknesser.

If I bludgeoned someone to death with a claw hammer would it be the hammer's fault?

I grew up with boys of eleven and twelve years old owning their own shotguns and shooting unsupervised. I knew no one who didn't carry a knife.

Likewise, taught shotgun safety before I was big enough to lift a 12 bore let alone sight it, and quite used to seeing one or more resting nearby aground normal farm activities.
Several of my pre-teen wealthier friends had 410's or 28 ? bores. Always had a sheath knife on my belt when not at school. In fact I still have mine, but can't wear it or carry it in public.

A chap some 15 years older than me (I'm 66) told me long ago that in this area at least when he was a boy it was easier to get a firearms licence than a shotgun ticket - rifles weren't used for burglaries and bank robberies, shotguns were.
My mother looked at my shotgun licence one day and said Jeeez, I wouldn't buy a used car from you let alone let you loose with a gun. :lol:

Up till 97, a firearms license was generally much harder to get than a shotgun, unless of course you were a farmer, as shotguns are tools of the trade. Back then, a farmer wasnt even required to lock the shotgun up as he would need it in a hurry if a fox came calling. After 97 it became very difficult to obtain either license. Now they are treated equally and usually on a combined ticket.
I've owned many guns, and shot literally 100s of thousands of rounds for fun and competition (most likely over a half million). Thankfully, none of them on bank premises :roll:

The reason most people are afraid of firearms is because firearms owners (there are many) are secretive because of politically correct propaganda and do not get other people involved.
I taught my children firearms safety from the start. My son was shooting 44 magnum (do ya feel lucky?) when he was still in primary school.

Yes, emotionally disturbed people and firearms are a bad mix, but that shouldnt deter the rest from enjoying a very demanding hobby.

I turned in my shotgun licence several years ago, only ever used it for vermin and food hunting.
Get to test my Rifle skills in Germany with Winchester and short barreled Enfield 303. (100 mtr. range.) one or twice a year. (Obviously not 2020)

And most of these to confirm I am still safe to handle them and can still keep them in the black.

What are the rules for shooting handguns now? I have done it a few times but only in Texas.
