Sorry, been neglecting the site. Attention Deficit Disorder tends to keep me hopping from pillar to post.🤣

 

Hey, what happened to the post about that Panzer winter hat for $5500?

The ex Fred Karnos Army here from the early days of this forum. Been off grid for a couple of years mental health and physical health wise and now pretty much housebound with ME and a spinal tumour. 
  Anyway could be worse...... 🧿

I’ll try and catch up on here but can’t promise I’ll be as active as before for obvious reasons.

Hiya, Thanks for the good wishes....it floored me, I can tell you that....I had my 1st jab at 1430hrs on Friday 21st March....and at 1830, thought I was dying...the covid had hit in that 4 hours.......I thought it was something to do with the jab, so left it for a couple of days and was confirmed on the Sunday evening...by Weds, I was being taken to hospital.....got loose the next morning tho...:)

Yep, the fatigue is bad...some days, I just want to go back to bed as soon as I wake up.......that and shortness of breath....am dying to get back out with the bangstix...but cant do it...any walk is too far right now...

Yeah I have been having a very hard time with work and all, but feeling better now, I do hope the fatigue will subside for you soon! Speaking of bangstix, took my K98 and my Gew 88 out 10 days ago, Was great fun, its been years since Ive been out!

LOVE the K98...I only ever had a deact., de Nazified Russian capture, but still loved it....sold it to a mate darn sarf....how does it shoot??? Another mate had a LE 303, with a proper period sniper rifle, he held his club record at 1000yds with it., I shot it a few times and loved that one too..not as much kick as I thought their would be.....so much so, I bought another deact, and pretended...LOL....I have a Lee Metford carbine rifle, dated 1899, that has a brass button on the butt to an RGA regt and a rack no...will have to do some research on it...its seemingly Boer War period.......Will get some pics of it on through the week...:)

Yep, The fatique is ( I think) the worst...being constantly tired aint fun, is it??....so much so, that I think my hill stalking days are over...sold the Browning X Bolt 270 yesterday......still got a 243 and a triple...but they might be kept for the "level" farms I have on Roe and foxes...:)

The LE 303 was my best weapon and I got a marksmanship award at Bisley when I was an adult in the Army Cadet Force, and when I was In the Police Force I was Firearms trained and my weapon  was  a Ruger . But in the stores there was an MP 40 that had been taken in a raid, and If we were lucky we got to shoot it, It made a mess of the target, and also was a Thomson  but only the bosses where allowed to shoot it, which was a real bummer
