  8. hello, as above, ok i have just changed my day scope back to my MK 1 PHOTON on the 455 L/R and last year used a T torch with a stand I/R pil and worked ok out to 100 yards, but decided to go for the up grade TR torch and AS I/R pil so last night tried out and it just blanked a white screen even on low power as its 3 mode, i put the torch on side rail, any ideas to over come this problem, is the AS pil to much for the photon, ???? all help appreciated, cheers

    It could reduce a grown man to tears

    hello, have been interested in antiques and anything vintage mostly british for over 40 years sometimes buying and selling or finding stuff that friends want, i do not think there are many dealers that do not understand values what ever it is they are buying, but i hear so much about boot sales and people selling not doing any research on the items so even those on tv find bargains, today i find local boot sales are full of foreigners and they let in dealers early for double/treble the cost of the general public, only last week my friend a wheeler dealer bought a mint condition english made vintage fishing rod, split cane, HOW MUCH !!!!!!! £3 i kid you not. cheers

    hello, this famous salmon fishery has a etiquette on fishing that all fisherman must abide by and it was clear he did not so he was asked to stop fishing and banned, having said that it was many years ago that i went fishing there, but not to fish this particular part of the Moy, but my friend did so that is where we heard about this from the owners of the fishery, i cannot see any difference in your comment, breaking a rule defines cheating, anyway its no matter now,

    hello, that was my first spanish side by side, mine had a flat rib, as others mention try a rubber slip on and pack out till you just see the bead and the butt is snug in shoulder, i also found that using a hand grip in front of fore end gives you a better up and swing, i used the hand grip on all my side by sides, many years ago , theres a good book by Major Ruffer on the art of shooting, side by sides in general,
