  1. A quote direct from his site I think military style weapons in civilian hands convey quite the wrong image and one which is potentially damaging to the shooting sports at the moment. The possession of such weapons panders to potentially unhealthy fantasy (and don't tell me it doesn't, I have spoken to/observed too many fantasists). And these guns with large mags and rapid firing mechanisms facilitate amok killing in the wrong hands. With our sports so threatened now, I think it important that we make a clear statement about this even if it is personally inconvenient. I certainly can't defend the use of Armalite and AK clones in the media when our chips are down, just as I cannot defend big bag pheasant shooting or obsessive trophy taking. It also concerns me that Black Gun culture has become such a big deal in the US. It is something that has risen in particular since 9/11. I think it is a negative, dark, trend born of insecurity. I can't believe after all that has happened to uk shooting sport someone who is so widely published and has the power of influence could be so divided. Infighting and politics between shooting disciplines is terrible. The responses he has had in both directions on Facebook just shows how ignorant so many people are with what our current laws allow and what is already illegal. I for one will no longer buy a single publication Yardley writes for and will be writing to tell them such.

    Zeiss HD5 5-25 x 50

    Finally got hold of this, what a palaver! 16 day wait turned into 4 months. I'll put up some pics soon. First impression is good. Fairly compact, glass is good (i'd say comparable to a swaro Hab i had), turrets are really nice to operate reassuring positive audible clicks, easy to read and low profile. The parallax is smooth as a marmite covered frog the zoom ring is really stiff (hopefully will work itself looser). Not the lightest and the zero stop limits the design slightly though its has enough flexibility to use on the .22br to it full potential. Also a shame you have to choose between a fancy ret or adjustable turrets, id have liked one of the fancy ones but not over the turrets. The plex ret is average thickness with the centre quite fine. Do the business fine with hunting and under the lamp judgement out on target shooting but can't see why it won't be fine, would prefer something thinner along the length but as a compromise this should work fine (thinner would limit night use). For the price these go for including import the glass is better than anything else i've looked through, you have to step up in cost quite considerably to beat it. For: Cost Glass Turrets Aesthetics Compact 5x zoom range Against/limitations: Zero stop design choice between turrets or fancy ret Weight (being really picky with this one) Import only

  11. More people were killed in the battle of the somme than are medically fit in the whole of the british army, including blanket stackers, bottle washers and clerks! A third of which died on the first day. If it wasn't for our special forces, security services and the magic red button we would not factor at all internationally. Technology has moved things on somewhat but still it a harrowing thought. The Dresden point is an interesting one and bomber commander in general with the sheepishness the british government had after events leading the the disgraceful treatment and only the recent memorial to those brave men and commanders many who never lived to see it. The hard lesson (and its always a hard one) learnt if you have ever been bullied. If someone repeatedly hurts you, hits or kicks you when you finally brake and fight back you don't stop when they are on the floor, you make sure they don't even consider thinking about it, not one grain of doubt left till that person is physically and mentally broken. You don't get that if you let them back up to their feet. We as a country have forgotten this or those who have lived to sheltered lives that have never had the need arise leading to the spineless lord of the flies politicians we have now. There is no crueler animal than a human being.

    I have an opinion on what I believe to be a growing and unhealthy fetish with military style weapons and kit amongst some sporting shooters. It's my OPINION. It may be right or wrong, but some would seem not happy that I should express it at all. They accuse me of being a fool, a splitist, or worse for doing so. Well, guess what? We disagree. Live with it. But, don't come to this page to abuse, bully, insult or force your extreme ideas down my or my page follower's throats. State your case, argue, do the things that civilised people do. Also consider that in the tone of your response you will be judged. Meantime, I just don't think it is positive IN TODAY'S CLIMATE to promote shooting 'sports' which ape the police or military. I know such activities can be fun but there is more at stake here than that. It's not about our selfish likes and dislikes any more it is about something bigger. If shooting is to survive into the future, I think we have to consider very carefully its nature. I don't just make comment about unhealthy obsession with military weapons, I am concerned about the excesses of pheasant shooting and trophy hunting. Shooting, to survive, must fit its times and evolve where necessary...

    ES is it really that important?

    For year on hand load when using the chrono id be looking for the best speed possible with the smallest ES. Fairly straight forward logic, speed equals less drop and a more consistent speed equals less vertical range so better accuracy. On this credence all my load development was based. till now! Some strange results! Worked up a simple load in the 300 win mag, pushing a 208gr amax at 2904 avg but with a crazy ES of 115! I'd expect it to not shoot well at distance as it was only managing around the inch at 100yrds. Only had chance to take it back to 500yrds (working out drops for a few other rifles also) but I was surprised that once I had it dialled in every shot I could ring the 4x3" plate. It's confused me slightly and tiff and I had a chat in which he also said his 338 lap mag also had a triple figure ES yet held consitantly 1 Moa out to a mile. Looking forward to seeing how it behaves in the next 1000m additional range. any idea why this would be? If this is the case then is there any point at all in chasing a tight ES? thougts and comments sought
