As tech hits the lamping market, the fox and rabbitshooters who prefer lamping to night vision and thermal now attach torches to their scopes. You find your animal with a handheld torch, and you quickly acquire it in your scope with your rifle-mounted torch.
While handheld lamps are still narrow in beam compared to ordinary household lamps, the torches on rifles are focusable and have super-narrow beams that throw light hundreds of metres
