We had an ex RAF serviceman who worked with us return as a civvy and as a Woman.
I was the shop steward and there was hell to pay over which changing room it could use.

In the end we called it.....with an engineers twist



"Shim"

I would hazzard a guess that it would be health dependant.

"shim's" health was dependant on keeping mouth shut in male dominated environment.

Yep, I've got a medical 'restriction' in my FAC file. As I have athritis I have to satisfy the FEO I can can withstand shooting anything bigger than a .22.

ANdy



Is that a "Big Girls" Licence

Taffy

BTW is shot 22lr the day before yesterday and I'm still paying the price....I can't wait for this damned opp.

I have just been reminded that the health dependance notion seems to have a glitch... ...

The missus just pointed out a farmer I know in his 80's, can barely walk, but still has an SMLE that he pops away with.....

Then again, I suspect he has never been to the doctors in his life and shouldn't be driving to boot..

Mad old devil!

Am I probably the only person on this board, other than you, to get this? Seeing as Chemaine is a Welsh name and is most often shortened to Chim, or did you do it for whole other reasons?

Wow, that was too deep for me (no pun intended ), I thought Taffy was just referring to Shims, as in washers (engineering ?)

I was out shooting at Whittington yesterday morning, 90% of attendees were OAP......

I know a he that became a shim.

As I don't live in the UK anymore I was well out of touch, I was amazed when I was out shopping and some woman spoke to me using my christian name to boot, so we were having a chat when my sister came and dragged me off, under the pretence that I had to have a look at something or other. She was wise enough to wait till we'd got out of ear shot before she told me what the form was. I was gobsmacked to say the least, I'd sat next to 'shimmy' for a few year's at school. Each to their own I guess.

What with all of the optical sight's that one can buy and bi-pod's, I don't really think zhat it make's any difference how old someone is, I know that I want to shoot right up till my death.

If I get Alzheimer's then I'll probably forget that I have gun's, I suppose that that is better than getting Parkinson's, and breakdancing around the range. I know that it is nothing to laugh at, and I'm not making fun of peep's who suffer from either.

We too will get old, and I want to be able to enjoy my sport for as long as I can. Life is rather ironic, I can still remember being told as a kid that I was to young to be able to do most thing's that I wanted to, the last thing that I want, is somebody telling me that I'm to old, past it, over the hill.

He probably still thinks there's a war going on and the Geeermans are at the bottom of his garden!

That is serious overkill, say's he who once took a squirrel with a .308 win. with a head shot. All that, just to prove to the hunt owner that I could hit what I was aiming at.

VAPORIZED!!! and that at 100m's + while it was collecting nut's off the ground.
