    whos a smart boy then??

    luvly day friday -conned Mrs into letting me use some dosh to pick upa neat wee Norinco jw15 carbine &suppresor for $250.00. now wears my spare scope! ye trusty old nikkostirling 4x32
    course i got the matra -no xmas presents(neat gets me out of xmas shopping) no youre not playing santa(neat working xmas day so wiggle out of xmas dinner /drag out presents rigmarole )how good does this get.
    soooo- yesterday for the third time i hunted the mancave hi&lo looking for the spare mag for me old faithful.22 toz17- had the old b...h for near on 40yrs and shes never complained.
    Doyou think i can find the thing -not on ya nelly -however........I have in my firearms bits box a shell of a TOz mag(currently they were on TM for $120.00 each.)
    a bit of aluminium some sawing and some file work and theres the follower and base made. springs -a bit of a quandary -tried 3 biro springs -spirals went all over the place.
    so offto "Shooters Supplies" home of the "good blokes"and wouldnt ya know it they came up trumps again with a 10rd mag spring for $5.00.Thanks andy ,i owe you one.
    home i goes and with beer at hand proceeds to welder solder screw&glue.
    B...r me with a turnip and call me felix -it worked-a little fine tuning and we're away laughing.
    bring on dem bunnies and possums

    Well done bloke, sounds like you have a pretty good spares box.

    I cant help you with the turnip, but if you prefer I will call you Felix, Felix

    yep ,two packets of winchester subs =24.00and the lassy gave me a couple of trinkets to make it up to the 30.00value -no probs whatsoever .cameron moore(owner) was behind the counter too as place was packed to gunwales and there was some bloody hefty buying going on assorted plastci cards i tell you. no probs for me! sounds to me like you may have struck an inexperienced staff member or someone a couple of tomatoes short of a good bottle of watties.

    Yeah , mines pretty understanding when it comes to "new gun fever ". Tell ya what , if you put a bit of thought into your up coming anniversary you'll probly get the blessing for a few new guns before that glow wears off
