Could you explain the Proofhouse as I think readers would be interested in what you guys have to go through on the other side of the pond.

Sorry JD, didn’t realise I’d hit two pages!

A Proof\house is a place where proof testing is carried out on any firearm or shotgun (as the two are seen differently over here), which might include military or police weaponry. Yes that might include mortars and artillery.

proof test is a test wherein a deliberately over-pressured round is fired from a firearm in order to verify that the firearm is not defective and will not explode on firing. The firearm is inspected after the test, and if it is found to be in sound condition, then it is marked with a "proof mark" to indicate that it has been proofed (not proven).

For civilians it is illegal to sell a shotgun or firearm that has not been proofed. In the case of the Mirkokui am after it is believed it is a grey import, bought overseas where proofing is not required and imported by the owner.

-Interesting since all American Firearms manufacturers do that as it is required.   You guys go through so much and we tend to take things for granted over here.

I think the difference is over here they want to make a couple more quid by charging for proof testing...

Well, the Browning now has an extended pad and the trigger blade has been moved a far forward as possible, so that job is done and I just need to get out and shoot the over and under, however still no sign of the work completing on the Wingmaster.

In other news, I met a cowboy driving down my street in a 1968 crew cab Power Wagon. Turns out he has a horse ranch not too far from where I live. London, strange bloody place.....

Do the horses there only run down the left side of the street [smile]

By the way.  I know why Brits drive on the left side.  Back in the day when Knights would be traveling on the roads they would ride on the left side when passing an on coming knight.  This way if the other knight was a foe and they had to draw their sword the sword would be on their left side and they could draw it out and block or strike.   Had it been on the right side and they were riding on the right side the distance to block or strike would have been greater.   Makes sense so they simply continued it for wagons and automobiles.

But that begs the question, Europe had knights and yet they drive on the Wrong side of the road.

Why?

Time to see whether Google has the answer.... 😉
