    What Three Words

    W3W is OK but we often get misreported words from the police. I've coordinated a couple of calls where we get the wrong grid figures/location in SARCALL, automatically converted from W3W. If they have a phone signal we send them a Phone Find message. It has a link which uses the GPS in their...

    What Three Words

    We use Traccar in Western Beacons. Ties in nicely with SARCALL and MR Maps so we can see their location in (near) realtime. If they do lose phone signal it shows their last reported position for a short period as a grey circle and label. We're not Brecon so can't afford Spot satellite trackers :)

    Group Buy First Aid Kit

    I think you need to decide what the kit is for. The list above is basically an IFAK (individual first aid kit). Good for traumatic injury to yourself or one other person. Should it be a general kit instead for booboos (minor injuries)? Is it for personal use or for other people? IFAK...

    Air Gun - Ed gun leshiy 2

    It can't be fired as a pistol. The air tank is in the stock and disconnects when the stock is folded. This makes it a rifle. You can own one without a FAC if it is sub 12ftLbs. As for "semi-automatic", I don't understand the difference (yet) but this is classed as having a "self indexing...

    Pi££ Poor Preperation

    I'm in a MRT in South Wales. I and my teammates all agree that MR should not be government run and compulsory insurance would be a bad thing. We get our fair share of underprepared, inexperienced, ignorant or just foolish walkers. Then we also have the suicides, dementia patients, lost...

    The End of Internet Knife Sales. Law change could target one-hand opening folders

    So no real response with justification. Just copy/paste from a press release? At least you go a reply. My email to Stephen Kinnock hasn't warrented a reply. I really feel like my voice has been heard (not).

    The End of Internet Knife Sales. Law change could target one-hand opening folders

    On that basis let's require a license for any item or activity which could cause harm. Golf is a silly game but the clubs make excellent weapons and have been used in assaults. Martial arts? What's the point? You have oriental arts, boxing, MMA, archery and many more. These skills and...

    The End of Internet Knife Sales. Law change could target one-hand opening folders

    If that was the case then Harris VS DPP 1991,which set the precedent that lock knives were tantamount to fixed blades, would only have applied to they type of mechanism in that instance. The case law does not differentiate between liner locks, barrel knives, back locks, etc. All lockable...

    The End of Internet Knife Sales. Law change could target one-hand opening folders

    You have two parts to the knife: handle and blade. The spring component of an assisted opening knife is still in the handle. If it was the equivalent of a flick knife then that could be established in case law, where the CPS prosecution would argue the case in front of a court. The court would...

    The End of Internet Knife Sales. Law change could target one-hand opening folders

    In work I have to negotiate budget, contracts and the like. I go in with a list. In that list are a number of items I don't care about, which can be dropped. This is a negotiating strategy. I can play the nice guy by giving ground on the points which don't matter to me. I play the nice guy while...

    The End of Internet Knife Sales. Law change could target one-hand opening folders

    I have just emailed Stephen Kinnock. The content of the email is below if it is of use to anyone. "Dear Mr Kinnock, I would like to express my concern and objection to the proposed changes to the legislation relating to the ownership and right to carry one of man's oldest and most useful...

    Worst case scenario

    The problem for me is that i believe the view has been expressed that civilian first aid training is pointless in a traumatic mass casualty event. That us mere civvies would crumble under the stress of the situation. That only those who have had military training and have experience of...

    Worst case scenario

    To be fair it is the knowledge which is most important. You can improvise. The counter argument is you shouldn't have to. For a few pound and a little bit of space in your bag you can carry a few basic items which will make you more effective a mass casualty event (even if it is being able to...
