JSB Exact .177 (4.52)

I am about to get a sleeve of 10 tins from Intershoot ... http://www.intershoot.co.uk/acatalog/JS ... 7-761.html

Sad truth is, it will take an awful long time for me to go through 5,000 pellets at my current rate of use. Would someone like to split the sleeve - 5 for me / 5 for you?

I live in Rugby so this would suit someone who can meet up locally - I can travel a bit within reason.

They are £75 delivered so 5 tins will cost you just £37.50

Raj,

If you don't get any offers within the next week or so, I will take them. I have to come to Rugby with an LM train virtually weekly, so I can pop over to the depot or see you on the station if we take 10 minutes out of work.

Sounds perfect,Brooksy. Ordered it this morning. I should have it in the next day or two - will let you know when it is here and we can set the meeting up.
And it will be great to meet you in person!
Keep in touch. :D

PM your number mate and I will ring you. I can come to Rugby almost any time of the day, I assess drivers on their booked shift.

Cheers Raj, let's drink some tea!

So this morning, Brooksy and I shared out the sleeve of 10 tins I had bought last week.
As planned, we met like spies .... wearing trench coats and dark glasses at the cafe at Rugby Station (I work for the Railways and Brooksy drives trains for London Midland). The deal was done without words under the table in brown paper bags ................. Kidding !!!!!!!!!!!! 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

We did meet at the cafe but it was great opportunity for a bit of banter and a chat over a coffee :D :D . Another 'gentleman and a scholar' added to the long list of AAOC members I have met and dealt with in person. Hope we can get together again at a Meet or an imprmptu shoot at one of our permissions :)

It's a pleasure to have made your acquaintance Raj. Good deal done, it's a good job I brought my own train to carry them home, what, with the weight of 5 tins, I had to put 30% more brake on to stop at Nuneaton :D

Until the next time, hopefully an AAOC Meet, as I said, I won't have the Father in Laws 80th and 2 dreadful weddings to attend next year!

By the way, I consider all weddings to be dreadful these days, especially when they are being photographed in front of a field full of bunnies. :D

Only if you're sitting at a level crossing Keith, however, down here in the advanced regions, we've got rid of most of them.
:D

How is "Ull" these days?
