This is a classic example of two people who could've had a great afternoon and a good deal gone wrong. I can see your side, but I can see his side as well. If you would've taken this by phone rather than by text, you might now be the owner of a very nice Pro Target and a blissful lack of hard feelings.
Yes, exactly my thought train as well, i couldn't phone as i was at work in the Netherland and the roaming costs would have been silly for both phones.. Maybe i was a little harsh posting on here but it genuinely shocked me that someone would be happy to pop into a local field to try out a rifle, that's what i thought Dan was suggesting.
Dan...if our wires have been crossed then i apologise.
