    Husqvarna win the rifle stakes, vortex and nikko stirling tie in the optics race but iron sights are the clear winners numbers wise.

    You're right, especially for those with large/expensive collections. On the other hand, simply being a member of this forum has it's risks in that respect. It wouldn't take a genius to work out who has expensive toys.

    I suppose so. A full inventory could be 'helpful' but then I'm sure our private details would be of more value.
    There was a post ages ago about having your car registration details disabled from being traced to your address. This is worth doing

    As a side note. I have observed king cobra gang members are associated with the panel/automotive shop across the road from Reloaders.

    If someone was that intent on digging, it wouldn’t be hard to work out what I have through previous posts and videos.

    It's a bit more difficult these days to determine a car's owner unlike the old days when ya paid your ??$15 and they immed gave you the owner info including address.

    Back to the thread, my stuff is more mix than match. Gun brands are Rem, Sako, BSA, Tikka, Barnard, RPA, HHE Millennium, pre-64 Win, Browning, Benelli, Walther, Brno, Winchester. Scopes varied as well- Nikons on the rimfires mainly, Leupold, Swaro and Nightforce

    Just hang round a gun shop deer stalkers or pistol club etc would be an easier way to figure people out or who ever you are worried about already has you details from hanging around the confiscation events or if your on wank book most of the work is done for them

    Yep, but it's still too easy to do. I had to do it for legit reasons when my bike got rear ended. Ironically the idiot was in a courtesy car from a panel beater

    Rifles - Tikkas and a Borden actioned custom.

    Glass -Swarovski scopes and binos with a new addition being a Leupold scope (because warranty).

    Clothing - Harkila from Finland. Expensive but excellent quality and lasts for ever. Not one bit of camo gear in my kit - all mossy green.

    The main theme in the safe is what was on special...

    x2 CZ, centrefire and rimfire
    Vanguard (Howa)
    BSA
    Norinco

    A range of glass from burris, nikkon, bushnell

    Federal brass seems to be the most common element.
    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.

    Rifles come and go but the Nightforce and Aimpoint optics seem to stay.

    Rim fire: Marlin (4)
    Scopes: Nikon/Bushnell (3=)
    Suppressors: Gunworks (6)
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Its ok, not bad enough to replace but I probably wouldn't get one again. It does what it is supposed too. I seem to have to zero it a lot (once a month). To be fair it rides my quad every other day so gets a hiding but so does the Bushnell and haven't zeroed that in years.
