    So far I have:
    made target number labels for hft pegs
    supported broken record player platter
    used to sort/temp store parts from stripped guns
    kept large quantities in the hope that such a thread as this would eventually bear fruit...;):rolleyes:

    Seggs

    You could nail them underneath your shooting boots. A bit like oversized seggs?

    An extra 25mm or so could make all the difference between a hit or a miss!:lev

    Fill 'em with deformed lead from your pellet traps and then melt it, then - erm ... erm ... stack them up at the back of the shed, probably ...

    You could germinate yer sprouts in them before transplanting them into your window box Scott. :cool:

    Or you could throw them at Eels for casting aspersions. :D

    Pellet tins

    You can always put that extra little O ring in that you always find if you take your rifle apart.

    Yes the one that is supposed to somewhere but you can't remember where
