    Crikey you didn't word that very well Rushy. You're probably lucky we are heading in to a lock down or EeeBees might be up to give you a hiding.
    Although that might almost qualify as essential travel.

    And so it begins. Making extra money doing what you like would have to be better than painting the house.

    Ha ha ha ha, I sent the lady some of my grandfathers clamps which she uses to straighten sticks. In the event I become geriatric enough to need a stick then I will be placing an order as I have seen the quality of her work.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Cheers mate, I hope you are doing good.

    I have had a few people hit me up already , one was from Hawaii of all places
