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

    This sort of shit is always going to happen within a forum. Probably someone like myself, had a few beers/rums on a Friday night and wrote down wrong member details.

    Yeah could have been 270 brass then it would be used if it was not claimed lol, biggest annoyance is there is no sender details but there is a tracking number lol but that is of bugger all help..

    I brought a shot out tikka from Blenheim and when it arrived, I found a brand new ruger m77 270 rifle.
    They sent me the wrong rifle and didn't even know till I rang them. 2nd time round they sent me the rifle I brought.
    Strangely enough they wouldn't let me keep the Ruger.

    If that was a mafia message - what the hell would that mean? I mean a single bullet on your doorstep would say "you're next", does a pile of empty brass say "stop moving, i keep missing!"
