      Yukon photon 6.5x50 RT

      ATP 90's are the mounts you need . Made by Sports Match for the Photon and 30mm. fully adjustable windage and elevation. Had the same problem myself,these mounts sorted it, don't give up on it mine now is a cracking bit of kit. I use mine with a doubler and a Sniper Hog and can see waaaaay farther than I can shoot.

      Midge repellent is Smidge any good ?

      I go to Scotland most years, and I use smidge, works well. I also bought some stuff on Mull containing bog myrtle and that worked as well.

      New DPC and membrane, and dehumidifier question

      Henry, don't dry it out to quickly (cracking) My daughter has just had the same done it'll be dry in just over a week anyway. I'D have done it for them myself but they want the paperwork for 25yrs so they can resell in a year or two.
    9. Ray Watson, I would take your number and address off of here, You never know who will read it and know you have a rifle of some kind. Best to do this through PM bud.

      Modern life.

      People that speed up and keep going into a gap whilst you are passing a row of parked cars, just because they think it is their right of way. Not thinking you have nowhere to go and then cuss as they think you have caused the jam. (no manners in driving now) And to stir up a can of worms, cyclists who think they own the road, don't obey signs or the highway code and glare at you as you pass them giving them plenty of room. God I'm getting old and turning into a grumpy old man.

      Modern life.

      Wedding Present lists, It seems the norm now all from some store that charge the earth, and nothing on it under £100. What happened to being thankful for what you got, and not expecting the earth. Had one recently and it had the reception on it. (Bloody hell).

      This years flu jab

      Had it for the last ten years after getting COPD from all the dust over the years. Never had any bad effects from it, and never had the flu either. So I would say that I've benefited from having it. Saying that my arm was sore for a day or two this year.
