    Just out of interest, who has managed to run over their own (or somebody else's!!) rifle? If you have done so, did you manage it in a single attempt, or did it need more than one go to do the job? :D:D:D

    Just curious given the actions of a certain Mr Cooper in his baby 4x4 ;)

    I accidentaly parked on top of a Walther in its bag, yep, parked, got out and walked around the other side to be told i had parked on their gun, i had to get back in and start the car to drive off the gun, fortunately it was not even slightly damaged and still held its Zero!! and i had been parked right smack bang on the middle of the gun!!
    I bet he wont leave his gun on the floor in a parking space unatended again with his drivers door open creating a blind spot!! we where all very lucky that day! Dont know how we would have sorted that one out had it got damaged, doesnt bear thinking about!


    On another occasion a friend of mine put his own gun on the ground whilke loading his van to go to the world hft at Kelmarsh, that was untill his next door neighbour drove past and straight over his gun, unfortunatly that gun did get bent and the scope pushed over! :eek:

    No names mentioned, no resale values affected! :D

    Never driven over a gun, but that Mr Costello snr once got pretty close to mine up at Emley moor :eek: Do you remember Gerrard?
    I did once drive home from the original Redfearns with a tin of RWS Superdomes on the roof of my car though, almost made it too, but for some muppet braking too sharply in front of me and causing me to brake... they flew from the roof and landed square in the middle of the bonnet!:eek::D

    I would be as accurate using pellets in that manner to hit targets Paul than using a springer boing gun

    They landed on your bonnet Paul??? I am stunned, I would have expected Calps to have got there before they hit anything on the way down :D:D:D

    That must have been the year andy had the M1 closed that caused them 9 mile tail backs whilst he ensured he picked them all up off the carridgeway
