    argos catalogue

    Sad news lads for all those who use the argos catalogues as a back stop when chronographing their rifles, they're going online only.They could stop a pellet a PB,FAC or sub 12. Anybody know of another free catalogue of similar thickness?

    YELLOW PAGES used to be the best. If you got to Zoo or Zinc Suppliers you was in trouble.

    Sad news indeed; they came I very useful.

    As mentioned above, Screwfix and Toolstation ones can be employed. And I sometimes scrounge the odd bike accessories catalogue from work.

    Sad times we live in. Remember the other multi-use catalogues we enjoyed way back? Kays, Freemans etc?

    A ream of cheap photocopier paper costs you 4 or 5 quid.
    Companies are understanding that spending thousands on ineffective and environmentally unfriendly paper media is not brining home the bacon.
    Get sand... its self healing and way better than paper anyway.
    Same with yellow pages..... its not something to be relied on.
