just buy these and stick them in your normal bag instead of buying a game bag for £12,000,000.
it's what i use and it works fine, each can hold 5 rabbits without tearing.

if you don't have a bag, then jsramsbottom had a bushnell one on offer for like £10  /smile 343/

Why bother with doors? There are no doors in the woods and it doesn't stop the bears doing what they do.

You know this makes perfect sense, but the Decent home standards states a WHB should be in the same room as the Urinal/toilet.

It's something I have always thought of in the 15 years I've spent designing homes, and public buildings.

POM for £7.50
« Reply #49 on: May 25, 2012, 07:37:29 PM »

What the hell is POM I hear you ask? Well as everything is initialised these days I decided Peace Of Mind should be too - maybe even iPOM to appeal to younger people (instant Peace Of Mind).

Anyway get to the point Zero4k...
I've had a Combro MK4 for over a year now and it's a brilliant piece of kit, in fact I'd go as far as to say it's absolutely essential for any air rifle / pistol shooter in the uk. Most of you will know it provides you with information about how your air gun and different pellets are performing, and whether the rifle efficiency is in decline through wear and tear and due a service / tune or whatever - very useful information. But perhaps more importantly for uk shooters, it can save you from an all paid for full board holiday in jail for being even slightly over the 12 ft/lb limit - regardless of whether it's due to a fault developing with your air gun, warm weather, or even a new more efficient pellet being developed and sold.

I emailed Combro using the address on their web site and asked if they offered a re-calibration service, they replied and said that for a fixed fee of £7.50 (current price) they would check and recalibrate the unit if required and to send a cheque and covering letter with the Combro saying what you wanted them to do together with your return shipping address. Now that's a bargain price for POM / iPOM!!

I used recorded delivery - but they do offer a free post service. I shipped the unit off at around 11:00, they received it before 13:00 the following day, they checked the unit over, re-calibrated it and emailed me with the results and new calibration number and to say they were sending it back the same day - it arrived back the following morning. I can't praise them enough for their thorough, extremely fast, and highly professional service.

I check my rifle weekly with a ten shot string.

Hope this helps someone.

cheap sunshades;

for screw in types,

you can use photography ones (cheaper) as they have the same threads (on mtc's definately) so if you want a shorter one or a really long sunshade, just buy a short hood or several.

also if you found that the sunshade was reducing light gathering; you can either;
use a shorter sunshade,
use a step up ring and then a larger diameter hood.
or use a petal hood which should reduce glare without reducing light levels..

        For sunshades i use pepper pots for the 44ml scopes. The diamiter
        of the tube is about 52ml, and fit nice on a 44ml scope.Cut to what
        lenghth you want up to 4". The cap fits in the end for protection.
        They are also matt black.
