Well guys, as some of you know, I have literally just recieved my first ever firearms certificate.
Lothian and Borders police were fantastic, open ticket with no mentor condition and received all the rifles I requested.....over the moon to say the least.
It was evident during the FEO interview that he was extremely pleased that I had taken the time and effort to complete DSC level 1 prior to my application....maybe a point to note for other newbies like me.
Anyway, I purchased the following set up:
Tikka T3 Varmint 22-250
Nightforce scope 5.5 -22X56
Harris bipod and moderator.
Rifle shoots like a dream, extremely happy with the new bit of kit.
0.308 Cal rifle now on order with virtually the same spec, only thing I changed out being the Nightforce scope for a S & B 8X56.
Posted a pic for people to look at if interested.
Cant wait to get out and use it for the Roe instead of zeroing on paper targets .
