    Mark Felton Productions.

    He has lots of great videos covering little know subjects. Check out a recent one where a British lightning fighter intercepts an american U2 spyplane - something the americans thought impossible. The same aircraft later went on to intercept concorde while it was doing mach 2. Cheers Bruce

    General Reflextion

    If I was been really, really generous about Corbyn, I'd say he is a left wing idealist of the type that was common in university graduates of his time. Virtually all of those people have grown up and come to realise that the ideology of their university days simply doesn't work in the real world. Unfortunately, comrade Corbyn never grew up and still genuinely believes the left wing stuff. That's why he has such a hard time giving any straight answers - he knows that if he expresses his true believes, he'll be laughed off the stage. If I was being less generous about Corbyn, you probably wouldn't print it for fear of defamation!! Cheers Bruce

    Barrel import

    My final post on this subject, and my apologies to the OP. You're still not getting it. I can't force the US seller to declare a barrel blank as a steel tube, but I can ask him. If he decides to declare it as a steel tube and falls foul of US legislation, then he takes the consequences. Blaming me, won't do him any good, because it's his, and only his decision what to put on the paperwork and no, the Feds won't come after me, because I did not commit any crime. FYI, I regularly import oilfield equipment from the USA and it's entirely up to the seller what they actually put on the paperwork. I've had cooperative sellers and uncooperative sellers, but there's nothing I can do about that. it's up to the seller to decide what to put on the paperwork. Cheers Bruce

    Barrel import

    Maybe you didn't understand - I was writing the post as the person, in the UK, trying to buy a barrel blank from someone in the USA. If the exporter in the USA breaks federal law, by trying to send me a barrel blank and finishes up in the pokey,then that's his problem, not mine

    Barrel import

    Hacking a US government computer and importing a barrel blank are not the same thing. If the company/person in the US chooses to sell a barrel blank to you in the UK, you have committed no crime in the UK or US. The company/person selling you the barrel blank my have committed a crime in the US, but it was their choice to sell you the barrel blank and therefore they, not you, have to suffer the consequences. Cheers Bruce

    Barrel import

    If you are the importer, living in the UK, breaking a US federal law is irrelevant. People in the UK break US federal laws every day, but they don't finish up in Levenworth The exporter may have a problem, but you won't

    What scope for a Pard 007

    OK, so you thought a £400 add-on would be as good as a £2400 digital scope? The 007 is the best "bang for your buck" NV add-on available, but it's not a Drone Pro Popgun is clearly not happy with his 007, but In have to say, that given how many 007s have been sold, he's very much in the minority. Cheers Bruce

    What scope for a Pard 007

    Not if it does what you want - and it will. I have one I use with a PARD NV008 and it does give a big improvement in clarity, particularly at longer ranges. Cheers Bruce

    What scope for a Pard 007

    Go into the menu and check the EV exposure setting. it is normally 0.0, but increasing the number makes the camera more sensitive, but the image noisier, reducing the number makes the camera less sensitive but the image less noisy. Cheers Bruce

    What scope for a Pard 007

    The PARD uses an HD sensor that requires much more IR than a T20 can produce. The on board IR on the PARD is much much more powerful than any LED based IR illuminator. Cheers Bruce
