    Not good, but could have been so much worse. Atleast you have it back

    Sounds like amatures though, if 2 had been done the same way with no joy, and then yours.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Thank lads police lady said there was another land rover 10 miles away done the same way.
    They could not get it run so left it. Just a bad mess inside. Not sure what to do with it now fix & keep or fixs & sell

    Fix and keep. Its been grollached but hopefully you can get it going again. If they'd taken it and been thrashing the gonads out of it it would be a different matter

    Priced all bits about 400 will put her right. I've got it running. Should be on road next week or two. I'll pop some photos up when it's running. Just a really crap day

    It's quite easy to beef up the security, the Defenders are very 'stealable'.

    An alarm or immobiliser is not dear. Even knew a chap who welded a metal eye in and put a chain through the steering wheel and padlocked it.

    If they really want it they'll get it, but usually if you make it more difficult they will pick on another one.

    A crime prevention officer once told me that you don't need to turn your house into Fort Knox, it just needs to be a bit harder to burgle than another!

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    On my woman's we use a and a Clifford alarm plus steering lock it would probably come to around the 350-400 mark but I would say its virtually impossible to steal unless it was towed or picked up with a crane we had all this done and fitted the day we received it they are just to easy to steal and very popular with the crims not good news for the poor owners, glad you got it back though mate scumbags should be shot on sight IMOIMO
