    Good, I hope the sentencing is appropriate and he rots in prison in fear of the other inmates for the rest of his life. Her family have to live with his actions. The impact goes beyond her family. A number of friends and I were on the search from Tuesday the 2nd to Sunday the 7th as our mountain rescue team was one of the first deployed. A couple of the guys have had personal issues and have received counselling as they have had issues following the search. Finding and having to open a discarded bin bag that doesn't smell right is not as pleasant experience. I normally avoid condolences threads but in this case: RIP April. Sorry we couldn't bring you home.

    I would love to have that conversation, then come in and literally devastate the nick. i would visit every department, breath into the air vents, lick clean mugs. Then laugh as i hurl. I like to be right, even if i have to put the work in.

    HI there, I'm based in Scotland and as part of the recruitment process I have been asked to get the medical forms signed by my GP. I've just been advised this will cost me £109.00 and wondered if any other candidates have experienced a similar astronomical charge or is it just my GP? Good job I was sitting down when they called me back to tell me! Thanks

    Oh man! Your GP practice must have gold toilets and marble floors if they charge people that amount for a report. No lounge music over a PA system for you, more like a harp and musician in the corner!

    You can own without a licence: air pistols up to 6ft/lb power air rifles up to 12ft/lb power You can own with a shotgun certificate: smoothbore shotguns with a fixed magazine of no more than 2 round capacity and barrel at least 24 inches long You can own on a firearms certificate: smoothbore shotguns with a fixed or detachable magazine with a capacity greater than 2 rounds rifles with an overall length of at least 60cm in various calibres, .22 can be semi automatic but i believe anything bigger can not be certain muzzle loading pistols (eg flintlock) although if you are using black power as propellent you need an explosives licence too You can not own under any circumstances: firearms with a barrel less than 30cm (basically any handgun except for muzzle loaders) firearms which discharge more than one projectile per trigger pull firearms which are disguised as an object that does not resemble a firearm air guns with a self contained gas cartridge firearms which discharge noxious liquid, gas or anything else (including stun guns, tasers, water pistols filled with bleach etc) high explosive ammunition incendiary ammunition armour piercing ammunition hollowpoint ammunition grenades, bombs, rockets etc It IS possible to be granted a firearms certificate for certain prohibited weapons such as handguns HOWEVER it is extremely difficult and very few have actually been issued in the UK. I think it is normally for security guards for foreign heads of state etc, like Obama's personal bodyguards.
