This is a lesson in taking ones time.
The day is drawing on and you are in a rush to get to a high seat, leave the house and load up the truck, secure rifle in the back along your jacket etc, place swarovski 8.5x42EL binos on roof whilst opening the drivers door, get in and drive off realising a mile down the road that binos are not on passenger seat but still above head in the fresh air.
Slowly stop truck and watch binos slide off roof onto opposite side of road, still they should be ok, that is until speeding car coming the other way doesnt care to avoid you pride and joys.
What a mess binos are in bits lenses cracked, both casings smashed, hinges buggered etc etc etc.
Insurance wont cover and feeling pretty low so give swarovski a call, sent them to us says the nice lady and we will see what we can do.
Well these are going to be the bionic man of the binocular world be they can be mended, basically a total new set in parts, but at £503 its a damn sight cheaper than a new pair.
Ah well at least it wasnt a weapon like one gun did last year on a shoot day.
