    As noted by others? Dry feet. Antiperspirant on your feet does help, managing any sweat or condensation is mandatory. More than one layer of socks. Inner most is a wicking sock, one of the ultralight summer hiking socks is my usual choice....

    Don't forget the old adage, If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. I bought the cheap Walmart LEDs and they were done in less than a month. They were originally bright and refreshing but quickly started flickering and failed. I had...

    Thanks again, everyone. I will pursue the manuals, even if I pass this one on after finding a smokeless version, I wouldn't feel good passing it on without precise load information. I found generic scope mounts to fit this at Walmart, less...
