White’s all right
The summer glove article in the October edition prompted me to write in about an issue I have been mulling over for some time. I think the gloves look great, but why would the manufacturer put a white logo on a green background? If we consider the white writing on scopes, moderators, dials and PCP regulator gauges, could our quarry make them out and run for the hills? Okay, rabbits don’t have the greatest of eyesight, but thanks to the hunting articles in this fine magazine we know the vision of a pigeon is razor sharp. Consider also, Weihrauch has listened to customer demand changing the silver safety catch on the HW110 to black on the latest model. Am I worrying over nothing? It puts me in mind of shooting with my buddy, John; from 35 yards he was all but invisible under a tree, save for the white soles on his black shoes and the white tag on his green camping chair. If you can address my concern I might well invest in a pair of the Holik Anne gloves! ANDY EDWARDS Hello Andy I know what you mean about white being quite a bold colour, but I honestly believe that factors like fieldcraft, use of cover and shadow play much bigger roles in our ability to approach our quarry. At the point that our quarry can read the logo, we should be taking the shot! Ed.
