B & M Bargains, here I was walking round B & M Bargains in Gateshead when I came across a pistol grip torch. Took a quick look they were made by EverReady and had a single LED and where on sale for eight pounds.
I thought about it as I had wanted a suitable lamp for lamping rabbits but I decided to let this bargain go by as perhaps it would not be up to the job.
Next time we went out lamping my mate said he had a new lamping light and was keen to try it out.
As we crossed onto the shooting ground a laser beam of white light leapt across the field. I was impressed it was great nice narrow beam and well up to picking up a rabbit at a hundred yards. I had to have one of these. Its very light too as in not heavy he said handing it over. I swept the field and I loved this lamp, just four AA batteries lasts for ages he said.
Where did you get it I asked and got the reply, eight quid from B and M Bargains.
Well served me right I was gutted but determined to get one ASAP if the opportunity arose.
A few weeks later while driving through the outskirts of Liverpool there on the opposite side of the carriageway was a B and M Bargains and I resolved to call on the way home. Sure enough a few hours later I pulled into the car park and entered the shop and sure enough they had some in, so I left a happy man.
I put some batteries in at home and gave it a try walking the dog and was very pleased. I still have not had it lamping but have used it to find house names and numbers while responding at night and it has become my go to torch.
If I see another I will be having another one.
