    [QUOTE=mikee;1347876]I would suggest most peoples "discretionary dollars" have dried up or been sucked up with the increasing costs everywhere I mean in our hobby just look at costs increases in components!

    Yep was a the local today and when I asked how business was that was basically his reply.

    I think they have seen how "Well" the steal back went and realise (until after the next election) that this would be more problem than it's worth. Wait until registration is sorted then there will be no need for buy backs...

    The market is very subdued for most firearms, it's not giving away, it's like everything, with less demand prices drop, vice-versa when demand increases. When Hunting and Fleecing return to T/M you know the market is slow.

    Centrefire magnums have a well established place in recreational hunting and target shooting and no history of use in crime or terrorism.

    As far as I know the only noise about this was from the firearms community. Nothing from Govt/Police in concrete... Stop pushing misinfo.

    Considering the .22LR has a theoretical danger distance of 1.6k's, not really sure what the issue they would be trying to solve is. I mean, .303Br rear iron sights come in 1200yd max from stock.

    Funny I started this thread because I was after information and there are a lot more knowledgeable people on here than me . And even funnier when someone asks a question I was taught it's polite to answer. So whatever

    This is leading down the UK model of requiring a reason acceptable to the police for rifle use - for example (and it depends on the local Constabularies reading of the Home Office guidance) you may only get a "Dangerous game" rifle - 416, 458 470 etc if you have a trip to Africa booked, and they will often restrict the number of rounds you are allowed to own for that rifle.

    IF TRUE, and while I don't doubt that the imported British police would be keen to see this rubbish installed here, this is yet another solution to a problem that doesn't exist. I guess having a select committee system that worked would be part of the answer, but with what we currently have I don't know. It seems not creating a problem is no longer sufficient.

    Yes, I think you have summed it up. Imported cops who weasel into management with the intention of changing things here to mirror their home country. When 338 Lapua became available the IRA etc used them to shoot border guards from 3 - 400 mtrs as the lapua would penetrate ceramic body armor. - According to mate who was stationed there. So naturally the UK cops have concerns about this class of rifle

    Mark nails a 24"x24" target from 3000 yards with a 308, with an effective range limit of 800m according to most armies.

    Simple solution... A multiple choice firearms knowledge test for all prospective select committee members. You can only be on the committee if you really know your subject matter.


    Actually, 3 waters, wetlands, biodiversity, infrastructure, benefits, carbon... I may be onto a good thing here!
