    Very easy to cut down a factory tikka stock. Or have you had a look at savage accufit stocks?

    @Norway, on a lot of your videos we see you drinking coffee. When and How much do you consume of it and how much do you think it affects your shooting?

    I'm a coffee addict. Despite being absolute shit, I drink it non-stop at work until my stomach revolts. Nightshifts exempted, I don't drink coffee at night. Quantity unknown.
    Every morning starts with a double coffee. I had to take another double coffee before mustering the will to write this.
    At the shooting range I drink up to 1 Stanley Thermos 0,7 Litres, leaves me pissing all over the place. Unlike work, this is nice coffee. At work, looking into the cup is like seeing the spills of Exxon Valdez.

    How it affects my shooting? No idea, but it leaves me pissing so I don't drink coffee when doing important shots i.e. going stalking.

    I asked when and how much, not why. The man has his own reasons for the why

    You might want to lighten up Friwi- I have a lot of close French blood and drink a fair bit of coffee ( and red wine). Make what you want of it..

    Think there might be a bit lost in translation for post #21 seen as a joke with emoji and post #23 no emoji.
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.
