Night Vision & Optics Evening

On Tuesday 3rd October branch members had chance to review some of the latest Pulsar night/thermal vision and Swarovski optics courtesy of Game and Country in Selkirk. It was a great evening and thanks to Richard McGill for organising and providing refreshments, a great night was had by all and it was great to meet some new faces.
