New Vice And New Approach
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?
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.
