    Hi another new guy from the UK.
    I am into vermin shooting and deerstalking.

    Absolutely useless with a shotgun but then some might say the same about my rifle shooting LOL

    I have a few various rifles ;
    Brno 22 r/f old tasco scope with lovely clear optics not the modern crap.

    SAKO 243 synthetic stainless with a Meopta 7 x 50

    Remington 700 VS with a Burris black diamond 6-24 x 50. Surprised these optics aren't more popular over here as they are great in poor light.

    All of them wear moderators/silencers, Reflex T8 being my choice on the c/f's.

    Welcome to Long Range Hunting. It's always good to have another member from "across the pond".

    You're lucky with your moderators/silencers. In the state where I live we can own a moderator/silencer we just can't use them. I can pay the money, put one on a gun but I can't shoot it. Great law huh?

    Our moderators are classed as a separate firearm so you have to have authorisation as if it was an extra gun.

    Its only a piece of pipe but then I suppose you could say the same about the barrel.
