Well now ,took my self and my new tool to the farm and unloaded in a likely spot .Before even unpacking saw a white butt in the distance ,quick load and rest on the gate 1 down first 5 minutes wow impressed myself .Set up and worked out how to get in :icon_eek: of course the rifle is longer than the hide but a bit of draped camnet sorted this, minor issue .Quick scan and a buck was about 70yds away having a play time for number 2 .By dark oclock 4 shot but only 2 worth bringing back clean of mixxy .This location has 3 warrens and seems like 2 are clear ,happy with the hide yes ,could do with with a shorter barrel  but will do for  pigeons and  for my perm as its tree lined but open fields apart from the plantation .

And the chair is sturdy which is good for a large gentleman such as myself :whistling:

45 quid Nathan ,sort of cheapish .Main use will be Pigeons with the air rifle but time will tell.And yes the chair is comfy ,drinks holder and a pouch for bino,s and a pouch for whatever chocolate or pop or maybe cake mm we like cake :laugh:

The 25 round mag is a lazy job ,load up 1 mag and just carry a Mel B wallet with a reload in it.

Folds up easy enough just need a set of pegs as it didnt come with 1 but without pegging it out you have a wibbly wobbly job on your hands atb

I bought a similar two seat version for bunny ambushing but in truth, I have had it for over two years and it has never been out of the bag other than to try it in the garden to see how tricky they are to put away. Must get it out and try it in the field.

Would be better still with a camo net thrown over the top.

I agree 100% and you will still be able to shoot through the netting.

Looks ok! :thumbs:

I have used/made the very occasional hide, and of course regularly seek some cover if it is available (usually to protect me from the elements:laugh:).  

I have never found an overwhelming need just the same, but everyone's situation is different and if they work for some then great! :thumbs:

      Got chance to test Gavs balls this afternoon! That sounds all wrong!!
      The balls Gav kindly cast and sent me I mean.
      I used an old sign that's lay in the grass for years. Take a look and I will explain.

      I was aiming for the P at 30yds.
      The two shots close to the P and the shot just above them two were the best load chain today. The high one was the aiming, I was seeing to much barrel and the following two responded perfectly to my adjusted hold.
      The other three were a different load and unsatisfactory.
      In saying that the sign easily represents a small deers chest and all six shots would of killed a deer!
      With the good load I should be able to hunt rabbit with.
      Here is the reverse side of the target.

      I love this fusil, it has a fast lock and gets good speed up.
      Got some squirrel with shot too.

      Cheers  Gav, now I know it's worth getting a mould.

      I had an hour to spare so decided to take the 17HMR out, I don't get it out enough really, mainly just because I'm a tight old git!
      Anyway hole number one, ranged at 88 yards with rangefinder, scanning the ground with the scope, a bloody immigrant came into sight, to my absolute disgust it was actually copulating with a local, having no choice I promptly dispatched it, the participant promptly ran off or it would have got the same. Three more locals swiftly followed their demise, as I was waiting to see if any more wanted to play I realised I had my phone, so took pictures too.
      I then went on down the road to another spot I frequent, most ran off as I approached, but managed to nail two that were convinced they were hidden as rocks, I proved them wrong. One actually managed to writhe around a bit after the first shot so a second was issued promptly, these were around the 75 yard mark.
      I wanted to checkout another hole I'd been hammering quite hard during the week and taken 19 out of since Monday. I was pretty sure they knew my landy by now and would be holed up before I got chance to scope them out, oh how wrong I was, two babies an easy target out around eighty yards (yes I shoot babies, they'll be big ones soon enough). I also missed a bigger one a bit further out which ran to ground very quickly, must have been close but not close enough.
      I'm sure everyone has seen enough dead rabbits so took some of the scenery I shoot around instead  apart from the floozy immigrant, I thought you all like to see that.
      All in all not a bad hour, and the scores are :-
      Rounds taken = 10
      Bunnies dispatched = 8 = £4 from the estate. 5 sold = £5 so all in all more than covered the ammo, happy daze 😎

      Had a little mooch last night around the stables for an hour or so.
      No soon as load the CZ I see my first target for the night, only been there 5 minutes.
      It caught sight of me and bounced off, I thought it would be well gone, but oh no.
      Popped my head around the side of the stable and there it was, sat perfectly up right no more than 20 yards away.
      I got my self positioned to shoot through the fence and then let the trigger finger go.
      Next thing thud, nice little head shot😉😊

      Thought I’d have an hour or so up the stables tonight, glad I did.
      Just creeping towards the stable and spotted my first of the night on the path.
      As I crept up he started heading towards the paddock, I crept under the fence and there he was sitting nicely minding his own business munching and then........... bang one down.
      Just as I scanned the field there was number two, a good 75 yards and again...... bang, down goes number 2.
      Two in 10 minutes of arriving.
      Thought I’d  look Over the fence through the trees and number 3 pops it’s head up, 60-70 yards and with a squeeze of the trigger..... bang, a nice little hat trick for the evening. Happy days!!😊

      Out last night for a mooch around and not a thing to be seen😞
      Got the shock of my life though, walking toward the stables then hey presto the 4 horses came right at me.
      Looking at me very curiously as they walked past stood in the top paddock, field that I wanted to be in.
      With a little gentle persuasion, lots of squeaking of the lip and holding my hand out as to say I mean no harm, got them into the bottom field and closed the gate till I was done.
      They must have thought who’s this nutter 😂
      After all my efforts not a bloody thing!! Probably all the lip squeaking lol. 
      Nice walk and some peace and quiet so not all bad😊
