    I am gob smacked. What a gift.

    Today was my last day at work for a business I have been doing a job for over the last nine months. There was a breakfast to celebrate my time with them and some kind words said about what I had achieved but what happened next has left me completely gobsmacked. They have given me a completely unexpected gift. There was no need for them to give any form of gift as I had only been there for the last nine months. I can't show you yet (I'll do that on Monday once it has been all put together) but I can describe it to you. It goes something like this - CZ455 17HMR Thumbhole Varmint rifle + Warne rings + Leupold VX1 3-9x40 + Harris bipod. Completely unbelievable. I am extremely grateful and still blown away. I have never in my lifetime been the subject of such generosity.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Nice

    Obvious good buggers who appreciate the effort you put in.

    Enjoy Rushy.

    Cheers
