Friday night thought i,d have a pre pheasant delivery fox mooch .Pardnv 007 on a Hawke Vantage 3-12x50 on top of a cz452 in,22.l/r but with CCI segs in for mr charles .

Also my spanish pal wanted some bunnies for the b,b,q <his fault the weather,s gone pooh>so the segs  do both ,set off about 10.30pm in squalid dirty patchy fog but i thought helps me to hide and the thermal spotter keeps mr charles in view .4 frustrating hours later old charley boy is a no show so back to the car i stomp.

Suddenly a suicidal rabbit just pops up from his hole and stares at this big lump in the fog ,well at 10yds even this blind old blinker couldnt miss ,the Pard,s clear unfuzzy picture is sweet and no 1 is bagged after gutting . A nice size buck <meal for 2 > carry on plodding .

Across the meadow towards the gate a small blobb is being chased by a horny blobb so i put the rifle up and the doe is no 2 for the bbq .Gutted and bagged back to the car i trots.

Wish id got this sooner its far superior to Photon and sony camera or hawkes own monocular for image quality and range atb and good hunting

Do you lads ever see any birds roosted in your thermals, like crows and magpies?

You will detect them ..... but it is illegal to shoot winged vermin at night. Just saying.

I scaring them illegal? Like dressing up as a scarecrow and shouting " BOO" ok?

Or putting a banger under them?


I use to frequent somewhere that in the tall hedges magpies would roost and on moon lit nights it was worth a visit with a 410. Only to scare them mind.

Still had to cover my face!

They soon learnt to disperse but every early spring they would prefer this hedge.

The little rascals.

      Hello all.🙂
      Just an update as it has been a while.I have been looking for a subsonic .22LR hollow point that shoots well from a cold clean bore and have recently started using RWS subs which do well, typically from the first shot..I have used a few different brands of subsonic H.P.s and they all group quite well after 5 or so fouling shots, but RWS like the cold clean bore,needless to say I am a happy and for me, decent shooting.🙂.I have used the RWS before in the old Annie 1416 DG and it was equally consistent in that rifle.
      A couple of typical below all from a cold clean bore..My scope is a Hawke Vantage x2 -x7 32mm A.O. with illuminated reticle which is a great field scope but lacks magnification for target shooting so is sometimes difficult to deduce if a shot has been pulled, but I love the scope.
      Have a good weekend all.🙂

      Well I got 2 unused table clamps and a need for stability. 
      Cant afford the new style tripods <on furlough pay>,so I thought make your own. So drill n tap m10x1.5 in the base of said bracket .
      Cut 2 pieces 7.5x3.5cm steel plate and fix to clamp .Drill hole and fit split pin to stop wind out in turnscrew. Then cut leather patches to fit and bond with contact adhesive, allowing 24 hours  to cure and Bob's your job.
      Stable, free and hands free atb

      While you were playing with your new rifles I went and got me a 3" hatsan ford escort 12g and to be honest I am quite impressed! 
      I put 28, 29, 32 and 36 gram loads through it and home loads some of which were subsonic and it cycled the lot! And with no O ring present!
      I eventually did put an O ring on it but it was to thick and just would not allow the hammer to strike the firing pin although the action was locked. It's quite a precise fit. I later fitted a smaller section ring and now it fires. The reason for the ring despite perfect function without one is that the barreled action is quite loose without it but with it it all snugs up nice.
      The one stock adjuster made it a perfect fit for me too. As autos go it is a pleasant cyclic sensation too, not effecting aiming much at all. It's no lightweight but not ridiculous either.
      No pictures as it's just a cheap auto and I have been busy building an arc to survive the floods!!
      Now, just got to wait untill September and hope the new world order movement don't get a knee jerk law passed banning duck and goose shooting one day before the season!
      Oh yes, no oil in the action at all !
