    Burnsco.
    Bought a soft rider pedestal boat seat off them coming up two years ago. Had a twelve month warranty.
    The gas strut in it packed up last week. Took it in to get a new strut and they replaced the whole pedestal for nothing.

    My latest experience with Youshop. Scored some bits and pieces on the 27th Dec in the States (Boxing day sales - saved a bloody fortune and avoided "several weeks" wait for a couple of specific things - strange how NZ retailers "can't get" something for weeks/months, yet I can have it to my door direct from the States with a couple of weeks isn't it).

    So went down the Youshop route because two of the places offered free shipping in the States but not international shipping (note I have used Youshop several times prior to this without issue). The other two places offered international shipping but estimates were $60-70 per package - bit expensive I thought.

    Anyway, all four packages arrived at my Youshop address by the 29th, all of them cost less than $40 each to ship to NZ, and they were all dispatched on the 30th and all four arrived at my door (rural Southland) this morning. One even cleared customs with a declared value over the $400 threshold. Bloody stoked.

    Oh no! Not another one to the home for the wayward strays of the wrong sized 7mm?

    I'm not worried about the performance of my 7mm RM. The operator of said equipment, ... now that is crap.

    Reminds me that I need to introduce it to a scope again. The non-existent iron sights are bloody hopeless, but slightly better than the previous scope/ring combination some Muppet put on it.

    The skids fall off?
    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
