  1. I’ve a td5 110 and was seriously waiting on the new defender coming out with a view to buying one !,,,, but no ! I’m not , it’s the price putting me off mostly , the fact they are so posh , for want of a better word , inside and there’s just way too many electrics ! I wanted a new reliable workhorse I can throw wet dogs in , muddy coats , wellies and not worry I’m still in two minds about what to get , so disappointed with jlr , at minute I’m favouring an Isuzu
  2. Ditto the above have used them for bits on a few occasions , always the right parts delivered quickly at good price , what’s not to like !
  3. Hello mate , welcome aboard , have fun
  4. Hi , sorry to hear about your problem , I’d be as above sit back give it a little time then start looking into it , but I would say it’s probably worth joining basc and using their specialists when you’re ready to pursue this , good luck
  5. Start slowly get bits as you go along , get a dozen half shell decoys that will get you shooting tuck yourself into a hedge line or under a tree , keep movement to a minimum , next add a camo net you can get away without using poles , use branches or canes , poles obviously make it easier , don’t fall into the trap of thinking you need everything at once to get started , a lot of it is fieldcraft not gear I’ve had cracking days when I’ve stood under a tree with half a dozen shell decoys and the birds were suicidal decoying in and I’ve had days when I’ve had a hide up , magnets , floaters ,
  6. These are bit more than your budget but well worth it , vortex crossfire , bought an 8x42 pair , think I paid around £150, fantastic quality, lifetime guarantee and come with a padded chest harness , I was like you didn’t want to spend a fortune but glad I spent a little extra !
  7. Dropped hints this morning of a reduction in boots on the ground and increase in new technology !
  8. I’m a member of basc but this is a no for me ! All my shooting is legal , follow the licenses and have permissions so that’s it for me , no need to record it
  9. As said it’s movement that will give you away stay still till you’re ready to fire

    Rabbits

    Just don’t see many about the area now , up the permission there’s one or two but mixy has got hold of them , used to see a lot on the margins and roadside between us and most of the villages , nothing now never saw many on the training grounds , they were quickly jumped on in bygone years
  11. As said if you go cold tarmac route , seal the edges , it’s the undoing of 90% of repairs , water seeps in and sits under waiting for the chance to freeze and lift the patch out ! Or if the area is big enough to hold large area of water will lift anyway ,

    Rabbits

    Hi, anyone got any rabbits , in skin or jointed , need a couple close to Newmarket, Suffolk , many thanks
  13. Hearing that I think I would swerve it , sounds like it may have been a lease car usually on a three year deal , so 37000 miles each year is quite hefty ! , try not to get swayed by all the extras it’s the main items you need to check as previously said gearbox , waterpump , etc , at the end of the day if it’s what you want go for it , German engineering is fantastic but that can come at a cost over parts etc
  14. Would put me off I’m afraid , regardless of service history , approx twice average mileage for year , check reason for this if it’s done lots of motorway miles not so bad if it’s been a taxi with lots of stop /starts not so good if it was a hgv not a problem Diesel engine , governed speed , long journeys ,regular servicing but a car to me ! I’d swerve it unless it’s an absolute give away price
  15. As you say you have permissions so the hard part is done , put a shout out on here for some company I’m sure you will get plenty of replies ,
