New Vice And New Ap­proach

Air Gunner - - Your Letters - RAY (via email).

Con­grat­u­la­tions on tak­ing up your ap­point­ment as editor. I’m look­ing for­ward to the new re­fresh­ing lay­out and con­tent.

You are dead on right that read­ers’ con­tri­bu­tions should be given space, and that one writer does not tend to dom­i­nate the con­tents.

As for the gun vice you re­viewed, I have used a sim­i­lar one re­li­ably for two years now, which op­er­ates in a very sim­i­lar way, but has a re­mov­able tray that slides along in the ob­long sec­tion as well as a se­lec­tion of ad­di­tional

‘ wells’ to store small parts, or to use as a se­cure con­tainer for lu­bri­cant and sol­vents.

I added an ex­tra two hooks to the font in which to store my car­bon-fi­bre bar­rel probe and clean­ing rods.

There are a fur­ther dou­ble pair on the rear sup­plied with the GunVise. It’s made by Case Guard and is called the Case Guard GunVise (USA spell­ing). I paid about £49 for it from my lo­cal RFD, and I have mounted it onto a ply­wood base for ex­tra sta­bil­ity.

Oh, and I now have five of the Bokum knives from my subscriptions past. Can some­thing else be of­fered please? Per­haps rest bags or targets of some type, which are al­ways use­ful?

Hello Ray,

Thank you for the con­grat­u­la­tions, I hope you like the changes I’ll be mak­ing in the mag­a­zine. Rather than go for a full- blown ‘re- de­sign and re- launch’ I’ve taken the softly- softly ap­proach, and over the com­ing months you’ll be notic­ing a few sub­tle changes to the lay­out and con­tent.

It’s all too easy for mag­a­zines to grow stale, so I be­lieve in con­stantly chang­ing lit­tle things here and there to keep the pages alive.

I’m re­ally im­pressed with that Gun Vise, It’s re­ally use­ful and I’ve been us­ing it loads al­ready. It makes swap­ping over scopes a dod­dle.

Re­gard­ing the subs gifts, I’ll make some en­quiries on what we could pos­si­bly do there. I love your idea of targets etc. Ed.

Dave has been us­ing his Tip­ton Gun Vise a lot in the last month
