  1. I too have been inadvertently 'winter bulking' it seems. I am refusing to buy bigger work trousers, and use a belt to hold them shut as I can zip about 3/4 the way up and not fasten the button. I am doing this to shame myself to do something about it.
  2. Yeah, the cheap ones are terrible. Someone at work bought a couple and they ended up in the metal skip within a few minutes. The original I have seen torqued to some silly amounts and it worked as advertised. Good luck 🙂
  3. Is there room to get a gator socket in? They aren't much bigger than a standard size. https://www.google.com/search?q=gator+socket&client=ms-android-vf-gb-revc&prmd=sivn&sxsrf=ALeKk00zcbc3HaDIf34ZQq0mUUG2fVU7vw:1604840039396&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj1oOCD__LsAhUcRhUIHXeCClcQ_AUoAnoECB0QAg&biw=393&bih=727&dpr=2.75 I remember maybe 20-25 years ago my dad buying one when they had first come out here for a similar engine job and it was brilliant. Don't buy a cheap copy, the pins just twist out or shear because the whole thing is m
  4. Don't overthink it. Find a pistol that fits your hand and learn to shoot it. For me, it was a TM Sig 226. It's like an extension of my index finger, and I ran it for years. The 'holster' was something I wanted to keep it out of the dirt when I was on my belt buckle, and the best I found was a PLCE ammo pouch with the rear of the lid trimmed to accommodate the grip. Kept everything covered, including the mag release which I found got hit when prone with other holsters. Droplegs meant it dug up mud, and waist holsters got buried under my ghillie suit. Ignore Gucci kit, keep it simple.
  5. No idea on Airsoft clones any more (I used to run a clone M3 pistol light with an incandescent bulb, old school...) But for RCR123 batteries I'm happy with Olight. I have several nitecore 18650 batteries too, which are really good. The rechargeable 123 batteries tend to run down a lot faster than disposable ones though, so carry spares, and some can be slightly fatter in the body and may be a tighter fit.
  6. I don't think you can divorce within the first year of marriage. You can have it annulled, but that's if it hasn't been consummated. I think.
  7. I tried a few before I bought, and I chose the Sig 226r in a guarder full metal kit. I can't shoot glocks, the grip angle is wrong for me, but the Sig was an extension of my arm. Firefly hop and a tightbore gave it reach, and I never tried anything again as it was the perfect fit 😁
  8. Hedge, I've been through a medical negligence investigation and totally understand how you're feeling. If you persue it, it will take a while, and will be stressful for you both. Frustration will abound and you may not win if they close ranks and cover each others arses and alter records as happened with us. Not trying to put you off, and I say go for it and attack with full force. Jgot wood, ust giving a heads up. Also to avoid costs, try a no win, no fee firm as I'm guessing your barrister friend may not go all the way for free. I can pass on the firm we used if you want, they were
  9. Tink, apologies for the double post... I got back from Iceland early Tuesday morning. It's probably the most amazing place that I've ever been. Surprise 40th from my wife. She did a brilliant job of organising it all, from the brilliant hotel to all the excursions/things to see. It's like a different planet, and even having seen a lot about it because I've always wanted to go, it doesn't prepare you for the reality. It's real bucket list stuff, and I'm fortunate to have seen a small part of it. Brilliant people too, a really chilled out country (if you'll pardon the pun).
  10. Yeah... Judging by the price of food here, I'm not in Iceland the shop. It's extortionate.
  11. I'm currently in Iceland. It's one of the most amazing places I have ever been, and I'm a lucky bugger for coming here. Surprise birthday gift from the wife. It's bucket list stuff.
  12. What is this now, the soldering thread...?
