    Shooting, Shooting, and a bit more Shooting!! Hunting on my days off.I have been shooting since the age of 12 (air rifle) I acquired a shotgun certificate at the age of 15 and a firearm cert' at the age of 25. (now aged 60) I used to participate in pistol shooting, in the good old days when they were legal, and owned many full bore & small bore pistols. I have represented Wales twice in International DTL clay shooting and also represented my county (Mid-Glamorgan) for many years.My shooting now consists mainly of vermin control - crow,pigeon, rabbit, squirrel and fox. I also did Deer stalking for a few years. One of my many other interests is photography, which I have been doing for at least 30 years.

    I certainly will. Just waiting for the PARD to arrive, and then as soon as I get time off work AND this poxy weather improves, I'll give it a try. I'm also going to try the PARD on non parallax adjustable scopes, just to see what it's like.

    My mistake. There's a built in laser pointer, not range finder.

    What scope are you using? Also, I will be using my Solaris SRX laser IR with it, which I know is more than enough. Another question, what's the built in range finder like?

    I'm going to try it on my 243 with my new Hawke Endurance 30 WA (SF) 4-16x50 scope. The scope was purchased mainly for day/evening use. I have other options to look into as well.

    Bit late now, mine is on order and has been paid for. I'll check with the supplier though and see what he says. To be honest though, I don't think the 16mm lens will cause a problem for me. I don't intend using the PARD for close range, as I bought it primarily for 100+ yards Fox shooting.

    I suggest you remove your telephone number and only supply it via PM.

    The above film. Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. Starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay. The DVD is original and in mint condition. It's an excellent film to watch. Sell for £4:00 inc pp

    nite site range finder

    I've got a NV laser rangefinder made by CRS and it's excellent.

    Snowdonia Taxidermy Supplies are an excellent firm to deal with. I buy the tanning mix from them, for my rabbit skins, fox tails and sometimes, a full fox pelt.

    What gun .204 cal

    Me too. Ground feeding Crows out to 270 yards. The rifle/calibre will certainly outshoot me.

    What gun .204 cal

    I haven't come across any of the above as yet, to be honest. My Howa is reasonably heavy, as mentioned. I don't mind this, as I don't carry it all over my permissions. With this calibre, I'm usually out of my vehicle, then walk approx 150mtrs to set up my bait station, then I position myself approx 100mtrs back towards my vehicle.

    What gun .204 cal

    I did the mag' conversion on mine in less than 10 minutes, and it's worked perfectly since. Perhap's I was lucky.
