he!!o, 
I have just joined the forum after stumbling across the site when researching a rifle I own - a Sterling conversion of a Fazakerly No4 Mk2. 
I am a bit of an Enfield nut and enjoy wasting money and making noise on the the range at Bisley, although I could not hit a barn if I were standing inside it! 
I am looking forward to learning more about various Enfield rifles.
Cheers
John

I wish my pockets were deeper and my safe was larger...
I am looking to add a No5 to the gang when COVID restrictions allow. (Along with a Kar98K - shhhh don’t tell anyone on here that though.) 
Thanks for the welcome all

The Met are not quite as understanding! They are very strict about having to justify every rifle so I have to pick carefully. Luckily my Father is also an Enfield nut so between us we have most bases covered. 
I visit Southern Africa a lot (2/3 times a year) and I have access to a Long Lee there for hunting.

Welcome from another UK resident. I'm in Oxford and also shoot regularly at Bisley, Covid permitting.

Armourer, I got over the sake problem many years ago when I was an RFD. I have a stone built room  with 7/8" bars 4 inches apart in an angle iron frame and inter connected with tie bars. The door is an hour fire door clad in 1/4" steel plate, in an angle iron frame.

Many years ago I got a visit from a police enquiry officer who knew 'nowt' and asked me 'why I needed more than one rifle' I asked him if he played golf, he did so I said 'with only one club?'.
