does anyone know of a holster or similar for this kind of gun? I’m tired to risking stabbing myself or dirtying the needle every time I have to handle the stock.

Thanks in advance

When you replace your gun, get one that will take a needle guard such as steromatic. The maker of the gun you have makes that type, too, so there's no great change needed in technique.

We use and reuse the lanyards supplied with vaccine bottles above 100ml, and hang the guns from a hook on a long hurdle pin, or the weigh crate ~ anywhere safely out of the way.

Mrs Whitepeak is a tb tester and uses a standard tool belt to hold her tb guns. Puts a load of cotton wool soaked in surgical spirit in the bottom to protect the needles and keep them clean.
She has had to modify the pouch slightly as the needles can catch on the cloth lining but otherwise it works great.

@Paddington ??
I thought of this 10+ years ago about making a crayon hardness that fitted like that so after you dosed you could swipe the head with the crayon.
That is pure genius to use a torch holder!

got from somewhere on ebay , bit padded as well so quite comfy adjustable palm strap and velcro on wrist bit needs to be kept firmly in place in that position ...... so the stick is where you want it to do the mark. works a treat .

Have in the past taped a loop of bale string to the crayon and looped it around my wrist, leaves both hands free but markers always at hand for use.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
