Yes, I know, it's been \*way\* too long since I blogged anything, let alone anything useful.
Still, it's time to reboot this blog. I hope the last entry, will prove interesting.
Also, I know what I'd want for Christmas, if UK legislation didn't stop me from having it.
I've already blogged a little, about shooting; I find it very relaxing, as it's necessary to be relaxed, to be any good at it.
I'd be entirely happy if UK legislation required me, if I could own a firearm, to keep it locked in a safe at a local gun club, when I wasn't using it, and buy ammunition through their channels, so said ammunition purchases might be audited; also, I could readily be required to use said firearm in an entirely responsible fashion (with appropriate instructors around) only on said gun club's controlled range.
Having used one (chambered for .44 Magnum) briefly, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience (see my article, here), Dear Santa, I'd like one of these, and the ability to keep and use it in an appropriately secured and controlled shooting environment, near my home.
Even our Olympic shooting team, is forced to go to Switzerland to practice, owing to the UK's current firearms laws; Switzerland is the nearest place they are allowed to keep their competition guns.
Something has to change.
