Thread: Starter kit

    Starter kit

    Hi guys/girls,

    I was just wondering if someone could give me ideas of what sort of kit i need if my FAC application goes through ok to get myself started other than the obvious rifle and scope. Also if there are any cheap alternatives of making your own bits of kit to cover it. I have made a start on storage of Caracas's and was thinking about a big 2nd hand larder fridge i can convert. I will not be shooting huge numbers and not likely to have more than two deer at a time.

    Cheers, Tom

    Face veil
    Bum Bag/Day sack
    2 Knifes
    Latex Gloves
    Bandages/first aid kit of some sort
    Para cord
    Sterile/Anti bacterial wipes
    Glow Sticks
    Insect repelant/Eurax/Anthisan

    This is what I carry all the time less the repelant as no need in the winter months.

    Personal Choice and it depends on how far you are from a vehicle I suppose.

    You will also end up buying kit that you don't need, but think that you do, we have all been there and done that, most of us I'm sure still do!

    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

    tissues for your binos/scope/arse - nothing too rough, will scratch your sheriffs badge

    Everything else is optional, weather dependant and based on whether you know where your going or not.

    Here is where the "Old way" of learning from an old hand really comes into it's own as you can see and experience what they use and why/how.
