Danny Robinson

Danny is based in Wiltshire and when not working he spends all of his time in the woods, either making hand made solid hardwood furniture, or camping and hunting. Danny recently purchased a new Thermion 2 XP50 LRF PRO thermal scope and is currently trying out all the different hand held thermal on the market to decide what suits it best as his next purchase.

Definately "the talker" of the pro staff family, Danny thinks nothing of spending an hour or two with a customer setting everything up to ensure they get the best out of their products.
