    Sorry, missed this post. I've never hunted either, nor has my family, I have no interest in shooting animals.

    I'm very new to this and I do hope to do some competitions in the future at my local indoor range.

    On the negative side, the range/club I belong to, someone went in on the weekend, rented a pistol, and committed suicide in the range.... kind of puts a downer on the new hobby, and uneasy feelings of going there... :(

    agreed. i've been mainly using some MUSA Bondhus keys for years, which are also quite nice, and definitely adequate, but these are another level of quality, for sure.

    Yes, as David mentioned, Amazon is where I purchased mine. Prime and delivered next day.

    A saucepan and a stove top will do the job too, I'm told. Really old Italians think those are over the top too. Whatever.

    I don't doubt some people can make a great coffee with one of those. I am not one of those people. Taste the two coffees from a stovetop maker made by me (we've been there) and our Lelit machine and there really isn't anything to debate. And if you happen to like a flat white with a bit of foamed milk, those things are a royal pain in the arse! My father inlaw uses one. It's a big performance involving a microwave and a milk frother as well to produce a pretty average coffee. If you just had it black maybe. It's significant enough that we take our coffee machine with us when we visit him now!

    What is it with Father-in-laws and bad coffee, and the use of microwaves to get there?! Any time I mention coffee when I'm at the in-laws and I get this "I'm a coffee genius" performance from him!:

    Him: "Why bother going to a coffee shop that's a ten minute walk away and spend five bucks when I can make you one here that'll be just as good - you won't know the difference I tell you!"

    Me, internally: *laughing histerically* "No, honestly, I'd *much* rather walk *twenty minutes* each-fucking-way AND spend TEN bucks buying a coffee that I know full well will be thirty times better than your microwave-nuked frothy piss water of a coffee, but thanks..."

    Me, in real life: (through gritted teeth) "Go on then you hotshot barista you - show me what you got..."

    Eurgh...

    If you want to go deep, KCtool.co is the place. Tons of Wera tools and lots from other Euro manufacturers.

    I came home last night to a package from Justin over at Black Oak: the jersey is even nicer in real life than on the interwebz, the Velocolour dynamite+ roll is fantastic so far, and he was kind enough to throw in a couple of bottles (and a package of M&Ms that my wife very badly wanted to eat, but alas they went to some hungry, non-vegan labmates of mine) for the overseas flight. Top-notch outfit, these fellas.

    Oh dear!

    My Father in law gets my Mother in law to make him coffee and its usually instant. My partner and I are on are our own on the coffee front. Which is fine by me!
