hi  Airborne3
the best thing about this forum is the help and knowledge you will receive,all top lads!
sorry for a late reply but i have been away at our VHTV meet,was a cracking time was had by all  :thumbs:
 
looks like you are on your way buddy,if you still need any help with the 410 just contact me via pm. you really need to do a shot string,to see where its sweet spot is,otherwise your wasting air.
 
keep at em buddy  :thumbs:
 
glad to see Roland down! nice shot .

Thanks Davy I will definitely take you up on your offer.
Work is hectic at the moment! I'm on the Red Devils Freefall Team and we take advantage of blue skies, 7days a week. I'm lucky if I get a day off every 2 weeks. If you don't mind, I'll send you a PM once I've settled down.

Thanks very much for the offer, I'm looking forward to it.

You'll probably be working Mike but the 1st weekend in August is the annual Air Arms get together near Nuneaton, all welcome AA owners or otherwise for plinking fun, laughs, beer, BBQs, AA spares etc. Camping available, basic facilities but great fun!

So,
now I have an A&M moderator/silencer on order and a primos trigger stick tripod, going in on pay day, I looking for a torch to complete the rifle.

I've been flicking through different threads and a CREE (not sure what this is) T20 seems to come up, quite often. Do any of you have any opinion? I'd rather keep it small and light, rather than a big lamp.

This will then be me fully set up and ready to get to grips with some hunting. Is it too much to pull out the old Ghillie suit? :D

Ghillie suits are for the brave! They just make you look like Chewbacca moulting and don't really serve you any better than reasonable camo gear or even just a set of olive green overalls (bet you can get them from work for nothing?)

Lots of guff is spouted about camo and concealment, high priced, high spec stuff with pretty patterns that makes you blend in.

Great! Trouble is most prey animals spot movement before colour so even if you match the bush you're sitting next to, that rabbit will spot you when you move and show you his arse as he bolts down his hole.

Iv been trying to put up an answer to your post for 30 mins as this computer is fecking up lol

 

The t20 is more than you will need bud and the beam will go mich farther than your rifle will shoot

 

there a cracking lamp just get a scope mount for it and your off you will not no its there adds very ,very little wait to your set up

 

Iv got the t20,t6,and the t67

 

the t67 is an amazing bit of kit but a bit of over kill for an air rifle as it will light up over two fields away and its on the big side lol

 

the t6 is a good lamp to but id go for the t20 as its all you will ever need

 

and get some different led drop ins to ,red,blue,green so you can change them out in the field to see what works best for you

 

You can get them off ebay get the one that comes with the battery, s and charger get two battery's all ways good to carry a spare battery with you

 

Feck i really need some one to sort this computer out or im going to put my foot through it

 

im going to have to stay off the porn :cray: :cray: :cray:

Hi buddy
No problem, the quarry will still be there for another day.

Camo gear dark clothing is fine, but your best weapon is patience!

Making a natural hide(s) and then maintaining it is a must have.

          Concealment,camo` and patience is very rewarding (fieldcraft). :yes:

 

                                good luck !
