Maybe if we drive slower we wont hit so many birds on this run :roll:
Does anyone from Aberdeen area want to meet to drive down to Dundee?
Sorry, back to guns :offtopic2: I was out to visit my friends Carol and Gael one evening. As it was sunny we were outside. Gael said excuse me I'll be back in a minute. She went and got her riffle, shot a crow from the tree, picked it up then came back as if butter wouldn't melt :shock: . I'm glad I'm her friend and not enemy :wink:

If I wanted a gun I'd have an AK47 or a Walther PPK :lol:


have to start callin ya Bond...........................Brooke Bond....... :P


Always thought I was more of a Basildon Bond actually. Words are my weapons :lol:

Anyway the point of the AK47 is that its an iconic tool of the 20th Century. Without Mr. Kalashnikov and his reliable, simple, albeit innaccurate weapon the world would be a very different place.

trust me, those who have faced the pointy end of an AK, whether they think the bullets are gonna go whizzing over their heads or not, have an awful lot of respect for it!!!

some of my pals are squaddies and the beauty of the AK is that it never breaks, it never jams, sand, snow, rain, blood and guts don't affect the thing in the slightest!! now our plastic guns on the other hand....

Yikes, thanks for that memory jolt, I must do the same.

Now was there any need for that :( I'll quite happily go in the middle and follow then someone behind me can point me in the right direction :wink: . This is going to haunt me for life isn't it :shock:

Hang on - August 12th? Isn't that the start of the grouse shooting season? At least you'll be able to hit as many grouse as you like if not other birds.

I don't think I'll be able to make the run as I will probably be away on hols.

But that's a bit like the other half threatening to throw something at me, if I don't want it to hit me I stay still :wink:

Robin: lets just say Lorraine had a sat nav issue on a previous run, it all added to the fun of the day :lol:

Which, combined with the other group following an MX5 that wasn't even on the run, meant we got somewhat split up. :lol:

:cry:

Can you take 2 names off the list please :cry:

My chances of making it are virtualy zero and I don't want to take up space for someone that can make it. If we do go then we will sort ourselves out for food.
