Old school never hurt me

With regard to Jeffrey Graves’ Top Shots question (Shooter, June 2019) I’m with you mate. My introduction to shooting began at age 12 with a Morris 22 barrelled .303. Cleaning inspection was always done by holding our thumbnail at the rear of the chamber and the instructor checking down the barrel.

Now I’m old school - safety is not what you do but how you do it. I’m officially a fossil and despite doing untold things over the years that earned castigation from my younger associates, I still own all my bits. But we have to play the game, I guess at least, when required.
