  1. Thanks fo4 putting the link up , lovely to see that clowns face when he got it wrong !
  2. I’ve had Tom Tom in past now it sits in a drawer at home I just use the waze app on phone , much quicker pick up on delays , road closures etc and it’s free
  3. Just make sure it’s medical grade , not the cheap stuff you can get in Poundland , think the ones hospitals use is called dermabond
  4. Hi , the latter thinking is to try and avoid celox granules and use the gauze as to the granules having to be cleaned out of a wound when reaching hospital which is both painful and can reopen the wound , but if it saves a life then it’s worth it ! The other items worth carrying in a shooting first aid kit is an Israeli bandage and a cat tourniquet but you need to know how to use them the other great thing to have is the “ what three words “ app , the emergency services use this and if you work in the countryside it’s great to get them to you much quicker than trying to give an address or directions , look it up if you don’t know it
  5. I’ve posted before on this but have just come back from one today , quidenham estate in Norfolk , would recommend to anyone , and I think great value , £240 for breakfast , elevenses , proper lunch sit down in the lodge and drinks through the day , four drives two on a peg load then shoot , used just over 300 carts and the birds were presented really well , I would say this is top end and for what you get I don’t think you could beat it ! After shooting here I certainly wouldn’t pay any more but with most things I think you get what you pay for with the cheaper ones , guess it’s the difference between a proper driven day or a rough shoot on the farm
  6. Hit both , paperwork in the morning looking forward to an afternoon pottering !
  7. Most firms these days would say you need both . Plumber to fit it sparky to wire it up , days of a general builder who would do everything been knocked back by health and safety and general lack of common sense !
  8. I’d be very wary of using an agent unless there’s a sliding scale for what you pay considering what turns up ! Pigeons have been very quiet down our way and anyone would be hard pressed to charge for a day but I know they would !
  9. Been on a couple of days at quidenham , which was a game shoot until last year now just sim days , it’s £240 for a day and the hospitality is second to none , dinner , snacks , drinks , teas , coffee , based on a proper game day
  10. We have leisure battery’s in horseboxes used most days running fridge , lights etc , never externally charged just charged when driving off a split charge system , the life of these tend to be around two years
  11. He always seemed to be down to earth , I remember an interview crouch did and got asked “ what would you be if you weren’t a professional footballer “ he replied “ probably a virgin ! “
  12. For me it’s more natural and comfortable to shoot gun down , just seems most of my shooting this is the way so why change for the odd clay ? Sight picture is much better gun down ! And as mentioned on a game day or walked up or even a sim day it’s gun down but as previously said do whatever is most comfortable if you’re only shooting clay#
  13. Hi , you’re near my neck of the woods but haven’t shot out that way only one I know of close to there is Churchill’s near Dereham , you wouldn’t be too far from eriswell which is lakenheath , there I know and it’s well worth a visit , another idea would be to have a look at quidenham simulated shoot which is near snetterton , the race track check see if you can get a sim day while there check the website , been there couple times had a fantastic time well worth it
  14. I’ve been on a few sim days and if you go on a good one you will enjoy it ! , food and drinks , snacks etc , hot cold drinks and a great lunch , usually 4/5 drives on the day , you can up the pace @nd let rip or treat it like a game day and pick your birds , compared to a game day for the price difference they do fill a gap in the market ! Go with an open mind you will enjoy it
  15. Diesels do love fresh oil !
  16. If it’s secure when your feo comes to check , as in if he pulls and prods it it doesn’t move and there’s no gap to the back of it some Scrote could put a pry bar in to then I think you will be fine , they may ask about fixings but the word “ bolt “ is normally good enough

    Boots

    Another shout for altberg , had them years , still plenty of life in them
  18. Our local has a musket on wall just placed on two wooden dowels , simple , classy you look at musket not the mount
  19. Go with tailored so much more comfortable and look a lot better
  20. 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
  21. 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 !
  22. Hello mate , welcome aboard , have fun
  23. 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
  24. 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 , decoys and hardly fired a shot !
  25. 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 !
