    Hello

    PS, I've just bought a Yukon xt 6.5x50 with a doubler, not fitted yet, need 11mm to Picatinny rail or 30mm scope rings 11mm dovetail mounts. Encouraging more rats /Magpies ,whatever to come in, lay down food in spot where you have clear sight of anything taking the bait, top it up regularly and wait for awhile and see what comes along once they are confident that it's safe. Not had an opportunity to take it out on a rifle yet. I, have taken it out using it as a spotting scope to look around my allotment after dark, spotted rats, fox, badger, The scope has a lot of potential, I like it.

    Vermin shoot required

    Thanks . this introduction was an edited version of my first attempt, which has the heading 'Hello' and I had a couple of conversations, on there. I'l need a little time to get used to this, as I have never done it before (as the actress said to the Bishop). All the best, peter.
  8. Hi, I'm new to Pigeon watch. so I just want to post a short introduction. I'm a member of local rifle and pistol club. Having just taken up air gun shooting, I,have an Air Arms s410 tdr and a Walther Rotex RM8. Presently shooting targets to develop the skill required for accurate shooting, before moving on to vermin. If anyone would like to invite me to shoot Corvids, Pigeons, Brown Rats or Grey Squirrels, in the East Sussex or south Kent border area, I'd be more than happy to accept. I, have day and night vision scopes. I'm a safety conscious ,71 year old man, non smoker. with a lot of free time.😊 All the best.

    Hello

    The RM8 had the bipod on when I got it. There's problem fitting a bipod to the front forestock as it has a Picatinny rail ready to take an attachment. I was going to fit a bipod that clamps onto the barrel but it's now surplus to requirements. although it's as useful as the rail mounted one and very quick and easy to mount dismount I decided to go with the one already fitted. Photo's to demonstrate.

    Hello

    Oh, I see what you mean now,🤓...in thepic' of tbe tdr, the scope is detached from the gun. I, had just bought the gun, when I took the photo, there were no mounts with the scope, that's why it wasn't mounted, since I, got mounts and set up the scope it has been a fixture on the gun. sorry for the confusion 😊

    Hello

    For me, the real purpose of the tdr is discretion. the rifle packs into a case and, when the A A badge is removed just looks like a small case when carried by the handle or, it can be carried as a back pack using the detachable straps. I, can walk down the street and nobody even suspect I'm carrying a rifle (unloaded). That's the reason I, bought it.

    Hello

    I forgot to mention, the RM8 is the varmint .177, the tdr is .22, both pretty accurate, our airgun range is only 38 yards. I was zeroing the RM8. the tdr was in its case, scope attached. does that clarify the post.?

    Hi from norfolk

    Hi Marc, I'm new on PW, so looking forward to picking up some tips on our shared interests. I'm thinking as a Gamekeeper's son, you will have a lot of knowledge to share as time goes by. Welcome.
