My life in books...

Recommended Posts

.......is it true to say vehicle reliability is directly related to how used the book is ?  :D

my BMW Clymer R80GS manual is well thumbed around the engine electrical section , all my LR ones have patina and I burnt the 455 Pontiac one when I sold it ............:blink:

cheers

I'm intrigued by the 9mm handguns book between the BMW 3 Series and Peugeot 406. Planning to do an "Elvis" on some recalcitrant vehicle?

Interesting bookshelf..

Goverments seem to think the people cannot be trusted with guns..

Not wanting to start at anything but I rather have the Mrs. hold the long slide than a phone when a burglar comes to the house....

...and yes, she knows how to use them.

My bookshelf is hidden right now as we're rebuilding the offices...

Back in the day, early in 1996,  there was a school shooting in Scotland and handguns in particular were suddenly very unpopular. I inherited a 9mm Browning Hi Power from my late Father just a couple of months later and it was impossible to get transferred into my name even though I was already a shotgun and rifle permit holder and shooting regularly at the local range (Kemnay), I still have it although deactivated, I didn't realise at the time how crude a process that was, it was very upsetting to see a nice piece  butchered the way they did.

Have now moved house too many times to have kept all the manuals, but it would be good to line those that are left up, its surprising how it adds up when you go through them all.

That's sad... Mine are better than any diary or photo, especially the smudges and finger prints... They take me right back

And if you were referring to me, I claim the same excuse as Blanco except I wasn't always young... ;)
