Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

Savage 1942 No 4 Mk1*. Bog Stock.

BSA 1914 No 1 MkIII (no star) with A.G. Parker #9W in a "close up" mount. Nice pointy bit & scabbard in front.

1941 Lithgow No1 MkIII with a "Central No4" sight in the Universal mount.

Central sight & mount (I have the correct "LeverLock" screw on its way here from 'Stralia).

Theres also a sporterised No5 Mk1 but I put it up in the "sporters" section so as not to offend.

The "great Photo Bucket heist" caught a lot of us. Luckily even my backups have backups so I didn't actually lose anything. It did all vanish there though. But I can restore it all.

I need a new computer but am afraid I would have issues in transferring data. Heck, I had problems with the 'picture' folder and had to go into the back up to get proper copy.

Now I have 2 picture files and I have to find time to sort thru and reduce to one picture file.

i lost a lot in the photobucket crashes - i went thru two of them , they still send me requests but ill not go back there , i like this site because we can upload direct , the only drawback is the limit to the capacity , mot of my photos are on an earlier computer these days and ive not learned how to migrate them yet even tho it still works fine its operating on unsupported vista , this one is win10 ,

i did loose a bunch that were n my work computer when i retired - that was my error for not duplicating to my home computer , a lot of these things i learn the hard way ,

Use a thumb drive (memory stick).
Just create a directory on it called "pictures", then copy (don't move) from your old machine to the thumb drive. swap the thumb drive to the new one & copy/move the files (not the directory) to your new "Pictures file"!
