    Fire wood Prices?

    If I owned the house (having to rent due to work) I'd have a wood store and start drying my own wood, as you guys show, it's a damn sight cheaper.

    Fire wood Prices?

    I'm about to move house, we will have a multifuel stove in the living room, but no wood store. The link below looks convenient for us as I won't be able to dry wood and the crate looks tidy (to keep neighbours happy). They also deliver to the door. 1.2 m^2 for £160 kiln dried delivered. I'll...

    Blowpipe/Darts

    They are used with tranquilising darts by vets, therefore all are classed as a section 5 firearm. The same as all the fun stuff; machine guns, pistols etc. Mandatory 5 year sentence. They sell them in some toy shops, I tried to tell a manager once, he couldn't care less. 😲

    First aid + kit advice for traveling the world please

    That's a good book, but for non medics should be read in advance. The bit about epipens is a bit of an ironic embarrassment though. Nothing beats hands on training though.

    The Advantages of A flintlock Gun for Long Term Wilderness Living/Survival.

    For a shotgun you don't need good reason in the same extent that a firearm needs. Expanding is only mandated in the deer act. But apart from that. I've not heard of anyone using a muzzle loader on game beyond pigeons and rabbits.

    Isle of Man

    http://www.iomtt.com/ Just so you know when to avoid. I've just booked my ferry to marshal / medic out there for the tt. But I'm sure that fortnight will make the trip very different to the one you were expecting if the dates coincide.

    carrying of bushcraft knives when out and about - Design Ideas

    A friend's mum is a magistrate. She proudly says that she'd never accept any excuse for carrying a knife. So all it takes is a **** like her and you're in trouble regardless of the situation.

    Some usefull info on the effectivness of water treatments/ filters

    I guess you can use it either way. But you need to clean it well after using it on the dirty end.

    Some usefull info on the effectivness of water treatments/ filters

    Sawyer filters are 0.1microns so should be ok. They say they won't catch viruses anyway.

    DC4 sharpener. Slightly confusing as it came in a CC4 packet.

    National Trust Pilot Scheme

    This will screw all landscape photographers too. I can see their thinking, but it'll change the face of the outdoors forever. Especially as 1 of the areas is "the lake district"

    When you're on the menu. What would you do?

    This is what I find confusing. You say you leave it to others, but then say to persuade others not to carry. Everyone in a trip has a skill. For instance I'm planning a kayak trip to Svalbard. I'm bringing the firearms experience and will be the de facto medic. Another guy is much more...

    When you're on the menu. What would you do?

    They tend to be either k98s (complete with swastikas) or ruger m77s. Both of which have 3 position safety catches (early m77 had a tang safety). There were many failings and the lack of training was just one. It does indeed seem that the rifle was carried as a talisman to comply with the law...
