  1. Another option is the fiat fullback! L200 with a Fiat badge, barbarian spec as well! Only problem is they have only been around for a few years so might be a bit more money!! I bought a 3 year old one for £11.5k with only 42k on the clock. Well pleased, nice to drive and mid to high 30mpg.
  2. I would hope that he will move on to a 20b after a few months once he gets used to handling a shotgun! He tried my mates sons 20b it was just slightly too heavy for him, they are the same age but very different builds. Happy with 410 or 28b, I’m not too worried about him missing, I want him to get used to safety and gun handling first! already started on safety as he comes out with me when I take the rifle out, and we talk about when a shot is safe or when there is no safe shot! safety, safety, safety!!
  3. Thanks for the good offer, I’m afraid it is to far to collect in the restrictions we have at the moment!
  4. I hear good things about Wabbitbosher guns, I’m going to see what is available locally first but this is definitely an option 👍
  5. Hi, My son, 10 had his first go with a shotgun yesterday, he tried a friends 20b, it was just a bit too heavy as he is a slight build! I’m looking to get a cheap but reliable .410 for him to use until he is big enough to use a 20b. Single barrel or over under will be fine, I hope that I can use it to teach him the basics, most importantly safety before stepping up to 20b in a year or so, if he is still enjoying it! We live on the coast between Suffolk and Norfolk so would like to keep it local if possible so that lockdown rules can be adhered to!! can anybody help?
  6. Hi, I have a Honda CR-V mk 2 that I am looking to sell, I have just bought a pickup truck! Only problem is that I am offshore until early October. I did not sell it before as I had to get a new v5 which has now arrived. MOT is until December I think. It’s been a great truck, very reliable, never had a problem. 90k miles or so will have to check, 52 plate (2002). I’m in phone range, if u want a chat about it, pm your number to me. cheers, steve
  7. I'm going to be using these in Norfolk, could any local wildfowlers please answer this please! Should I buy Canada goose or Pinkfoot/greylag decoys for the Norfolk/Suffolk marshes? Do the geese come in to decoys of a different species?
  8. I'm going to buy some sillsocks after the above advice to add a bit of movement to the decoy pattern. My shooting mates have Pinkfoot and Greylag FUDs, would Canda sillsocks look weird in this pattern? Should I just buy some Pinkfoot sillsocks? Do Geese distiguish species when they come to land with other birds? Many questions as I want to buy the correct product!!!
  9. Cheers for the information steve, how many of the sillsocks do you use in your pattern?
  10. Hi, I'm looking to get a few decoys together before the Geese arrive in any numbers, I've got mates who have a few Pinkfoot FUDs (about 30) but I was thinking about getting some decoys to add movement to the pattern when we shoot together. Has anybody used the below Windsock (Rag) decoys with any success? Also will they attract Pinkfoots even if they look like Canada Geese? My other option is to get a dozen Silsocks, a guy in my club said that they were good and even got Ducks flying in to have a look. http://www.whistlingwings.co.uk/acatalog/Rag--Windsock-Canada-Goose-Decoys-
  11. Hi, Thanks for the offer, I'm not after floating geese as they are a bit big to carry over the marsh and also if I shoot on my own I don't have a dog so will mostly be shooting in areas without deep water! After reading a lot of information and talking to local guys I'm after FUDs and sillsocks of ducks and geese! I will also get a few floating duck for when I'm shooting splashes or rivers (with mates who have dogs)
  12. Hi, I'm just starting out in the world of wildfowling and would like to get a few decoys (duck and Geese) together to give me more options when I go out on the marsh. I was wondering if any members had a few that I could purchase to start my collecton also any tips on where to get some would be appriciated. I will be shooting on the Norfolk marshes. Cheers, Steve
  13. Thanks for all the replies, they are all very helpful. I think that I shoot a lot better with a faster cart on the pigeons, I recently swapped to kent velocity and seem to do a bit better. So I think that I will look in to the gamebore range (as they are faster) and see how I do and maybe splash out on a box of american carts as a treat. I would love to be able to justify Hevi shot carts but I don't think I would be able to pull the trigger knowing that they cost £3+ per shot. Anser 2 - where do you get your carts? I'm struggling to find a supplier, the only shop I have found with Game
