bloody Barrel makers!!!!!!!!

      Rang my Barrel guy today to order a 35-303 barrel ! Yep no problems there ,he had the normal bitch about me ordering unusual jobs,but agreed to do the job .....Then of course I asked about doing a set of dies .....................Talk about having a Fit ?????????????// Hell you'd think I'd asked him to part the red sea! Bludging lazy good for nothing ! The Mans a Chalanton who should be bannished to a small island  in the Pacific ocean that is about to be used by the French for  nuclear Testing !

That sucks dave.

It is a pity there are so few decent gunsmiths around.
But the winters coming,

And the snow will cover tracks,

And I'll be watching,

Because I'm hunting you

   Basicly! He dosen't like to do anything but Barrels & He does some of the finest barrels I have ever used ! In fact he is the second Generation of the same firm I have delt with & the fact is that the reamer for doing Dies is smaller than a Chamber reamer ! To Say nothing of the Fact that he is a Lazy Bludger who is breathing Air somebody useful could be using !!!!!Censored Mind you his doing me a Barrel of choice on the cheap to calm me down Wink

Don't hold it in , Dave.
Let us know how you REALLY feel about "specialists"
Shocked
 
On a side note I'd be really cautious about peeing orf the barrel maker of choice.
There use to be a guy at the Bisley range in the UK.
He was the crankiest person I'd met (in my young life) up till then.
But Damn that man did awesome barrel work. I once had him streighten & retemper a custom barrel that was giving me fits.
He streightened it with nothing more than  a "FBH" wrapped in leather & a home-made wooden set of supports.
It scared the heck out of me watching this guy just pound on my match barrel with the BFH, but it shot better ever since, so I guess he knew what he was doing after all.

Keith is not the foul tempered SOB his father was (thank God ! ) I was once chased out of their workshop with a Barrel Blank in close pursuit ! LOL A Mate of mine near got his nose torn off once with a set of Multiy grips after suggesting that the profile of his new barrel would'nt work ! But for Years My Family has delt with the same company & I would'nt even think of useing another Barrel !

Your lad will have to be pretty keen to get a start in the gun trade eh Tony, my understanding is that you have a harder time than us aussies do when it comes to shootin'
But the winters coming,

And the snow will cover tracks,

And I'll be watching,

You sure got that right Hatchet. There are rumblings in the camp about us moving to sunnier climes. But until my daughter has finished school I can't see it happening. Even then I don't think the lass would come with us she'd want to stay and move in with her mum.  The Uk gun trade is all but finished big names like Holland and Holland etc are still making guns but to get an apprenticeship with them is like finding the Holy Grail.  If he does make it I think you lads may be seeing us down under as the trade down there is steady with a lot fewer restrictions.

Admittedly we're not part of the Commonwealth, but would y'all consider moving across the Atlantic?

Well tony New Zealand might be worth a look. Compared to use they are the "land of the free" and the climate might suit you some more. Also there are a lot of mad deer hunters there, there is more deer shot in NZ than the rest of the pacific.

Oh, and you can have semi-autos, so in military shoots you actually have almost modern military rifles like SLR's and Ar-15's, as well as access to those oh so evil semi-auto .22's and pump action shotguns.

I think I might move now...... I just got to get used to sheep

I didn't realise semi auto 22s and shotguns weren't allowed in Aussie. Strange as it may seem we can have semi auto 22s and 3 shot semi auto shotguns in the uk. Any shotgun over 3 shot has to be on a section 1 permit and you have to have a hell of a good reason to have a bigger magazine.  I have an old Voere 22 semi, magazines take 7 in the standard size and 15 in the large . We can also have silencers fitted under the Health and Safety regulations to prevent hearing loss.  All we have to do is apply quoting the health and safety act and the police usually allow us to have them fitted to any calibre.  So it looks like the law over here isn't as draconian as we a think. As for sheep you're originally from Lancashire the Lancastrians are famed for sheep molesting !!!!! Evil%20Smile Like the scots ( Alan Evil%20Smile) who wear  kilts so the sheep don't hear the zip!!!!
