The phone rang and assistance was requested, god alone knows why he thought I could do it but it seems he has killed his drive shaft;Here the dogs are running around laughing at the dead truck and below is the reason why;
Apparently those are drive shaft bearings and this is where they live;
At least the dogs enjoyed themselves even if it was hot!
1 Trailer full of logs for the neighbours but sadly no beer as the kids were at home and would eat everything in the fridge if left too long!
I get home, log into an old email server and find this waiting for me:
From 1st January 2009 it will be a mandatory requirement for a civilianshooter to have a certificate of competence to shoot on an MOD Range(including Bisley). The certificate will be issued on successful completionof a Range Safety and Competency Test (RCST).The NRA are still at the draft stage of what the RCST needs to include butwe expect this to be published shortly.The RCST is to certify the shooter, not the rifle so you don't need a RCSTfor each rifle you own. You need to be certified by 31st December 2008 for2009 and thereafter annually.Your completed RCST certificate will need to be sent to the NRA with a photofor them to issue a card to state you're competent to use an MOD Range.There will be a charge for this, probably in the region of £15-£20 thatwould be paid direct to NRA.
More legitimised state robbery or in this case NRA robbery, its another means of mandatory competence testing by the back door. Well f**k them I wont submit to this!
I suggest no one else does either, your FACs are valid for 5 years and the NRA pushing for more members decides it will (mis)manage this? I recommend that everyone avoids Bisley for 4 or 6 months. When they see a huge drop in their income perhaps they will see the light!
