    Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.

    Roy reacted to Goldhooked in UK Gun Ownership   
    In the UK we can own certain rifles, shotguns and long barrelled pistols.  It’s heavily regulated and you must have a valid reason to own them such as target shooting with a club, pest control, etc.  You can’t just own for the sake of it.
    I have recently joined a target shooting club with my son and we are both applying for a firearms certificate.  In my region there is around a 10 month waiting list before I will even know if I have been accepted.
    I would have liked to have had the opportunity to shoot handguns in a club/competition environment but I completely understand and agree with the ban following the Dunblane incident in 1996.  Same for large calibre (anything larger than .22) semi auto rifles that were banned in the wake of the Hungerford incident in 1987.
    I think the UK has a good approach to firearms ownership and is inherently a far safer place for it.

    Gun ownership in the UK should only be for the armed forces, Police, farmers and registered sports enthusiasts.

    Roy reacted to Kookaburracollector in UK Gun Ownership   
    In the mid 1980’s, being a member of a gun club, I legally owned a Smith and Wesson 9mm semi automatic. 
    Do I miss it ..YES
    Do I think, as a member of the public I should be able to own that type of firearm again  ...NO
    Times change, and there are way too many loons around. That said, it is not difficult for the criminally inclined to buy / rent a firearm these days.
    I still shoot .177 pistols, and should anyone attempt to gain unlawful entry to my property ....it would hurt!
    Dont forget, should you ever disturb an intruder, to shout very loudly HE’S GOT A KNIFE! (Even if you can’t see one) Everyone will remember hearing that (neighbours etc) and it gives you better standing should you end up in front of the magistrate/ judge! (Regards to self defence)
    Let’s hope it never comes to that!

    In the spirit of the forum, I tried to keep it an honest advert with large clear pics. The prices may have seemed expensive but I haven't always bought at the right time and I refuse to lose money with precious metals. It was fun and I met a few nice chaps on the way. Thanks guys 😁

    What I have noticed is people joining the forum, as standard members, just to complain about goldsilver.be and then not talk about anything else.
    No conversation, no discussions, no photos or sales ads...just stirring up trouble for goldsilver.be.
    I can't remember their names but we have Mr Kleiner here and there was a lass called janeey. There have been more but as I say, they disappear soon after and I forget their names.
    If a long standing member had the same issue, I'd listen but for others I'll question their motives. What are they up to?

    That's not 'everyday carry' surely?
    I'm concerned that you need to carry lethal weapons for personal defence, and that you need to defend yourselves 'everyday'.
    Have you ever thought of relocation?

    Roy reacted to Abyss in Is London all that great?   
    When I graduated 2000 joined IT outsourcing company with my base office in Manchester but the majority of the decent projects were in London so I moved to London into a brand new 4 bedroom detached house purchased by friends of the family and the elderly couple who I moved in with had no kids to work as IT Graduate and I loved it (22 years old) and on full expenses (travel (included every fortnight back to Manchester via virgin trains)/accommodation /meals). I was only paying £50 per week in rent included all bills and meals and was treated as their own son. I was made redundant 2006 moved back to Manchester and on advice of my late father investment money saved in London into rental properties instead blowing it on a brand new top of the range BMW at the time.
    I loved my time in London (even though had 3 hours overground and underground commuting per day) and it is because of the time I spent in London that has allowed me to be mortgage and debt free now. Everyone's circumstances different and unique. At this juncture in my life I would not want to move and work in London (not a young 20 year old anymore) and have settle down with family enjoying spending time with my 2 year old son and I work from home as often as I can.
    London brilliant and very enjoyable if all you are doing is visiting friends and family 3 or 4 times a year which is my case.
