I'm at 30k shots and I still had battery life left, but I just put in a fresh one so I didn't have to worry about it going down.

That is not normal. Use quality batteries; check that your LCD back-light is turning itself off after a short time (6 seconds stock); check that your solenoid power setting is low.

Tx for the ansers, but i check and solenoid was at low, contrast at 8/20 and the screen turn off the quick as possible - I am using good duracell - which i bought long time ago... it might be that.

I ll buy fresh battery and give it another try
