    "Elfin safety" - it's not all bad

    It would shock you then how many people I (as an H&S guy)have to talk to in the uk for doing the same thing, usually cheap sunglasses or the darkened safety glasses. As is often the case, they only believe you when it happens to them, although I have spoken to the guy in my local garage, and he...

    Any other watch fans on here?

    Not had any issues with it, and I wear it regularly as a 'day' watch. I will keep an eye out for it tho. My only issue was when I wanted to change the leather strap to a bracelet, Breitling want 1800 quid for a strap??

    Hobbies - What's Your Pleasure?

    I used to build kit cars (3 to date) but have moved onto boats (plan was to buy, do up, sell to get a decent boat, which worked, but I didn't do as much of the sell bit as SWMBO would have liked), a wide range of shooting activities, diving & my bike.

    A lot of the uses you can put these things to are going to be curtailed with upcoming regulations. As usual the muppets have spoiled it for the many.

    Any other watch fans on here?

    I currently have a Breitling Navitimer, Omega Seamaster Professional, Omega 1620 Speedmaster LCD, a range of Seiko kinetic and solar, a range of Citizen all Ecodrive and my dive watch (which I have no idea of the make, but it's lasted me a lot of years and a lot of dives).

    Tax rebate

    I got 3.5k back in January, though they tried to take it back in March as the figures from the new RTI system didn't match my self assessment, quick phone call sorted it tho.

    I quite like the colour scheme, but it's only an opinion

    Child on board ....what's the point ??

    The thing that annoys me is they tick their signs up, presumably to 'Guilt' you into driving in a manner which will protect their precious child, then proceed to drive like complete morons.

    Big man.

    We all have opinions fella, and I am not looking to convert or to be converted, would be a boring place if we all thought the same. And again, I agree with your views on Big Game hunting, and doubly so with a bow and arrow, which was my original point, way back when.

    Do you ignore your parking sensors?

    The passat mentioned above has that also, Mrs won't touch it as she doesn't trust it to park her car (oooh, the irony), and won't let me play with it either :dk:

    Prime Gear - Amazon looking at selling cars ?

    Also the programme you will see on BBC has been cropped to fit the time slot, all the episodes on Amazon prime are an hour plus.

    Big man.

    No fella, as said in a previous post, no-one pays me for what I do. As also stated, I would no more kill a lion (or giraffe) than I would my own dog, nor do I collect trophies. Also, going back to my original post, the use of a bow of any description to kill any animal is as far removed from the...

    Do you ignore your parking sensors?

    My good lady has just got a Passat estate with parking sensors which not only give an audible tone, but a sectional display to show where the risk is. The tone increases in intensity according to distance to the object and the display shows a thicker black bar on the same basis. The stereo even...

    Big man.

    Generally I would reply to what I suspect as a criticism but, as you appear by your quote, to be criticising my decision to become a trained and certified competent person (which is what Hunter, or to give it's fully title Trained Hunter, means in the context it was used) do I presume you would...

    Big man.

    A) there are other countries, apart from Zimbabwe, which offer Big 5 hunting, so using a noted sociopath like Robert Mugabe and his regime as an example is hardly reasonable. B) However an Alpha lion dies, his bloodline will be killed, please note that Cecil (that lovable lion) took over his...

    Big man.

    The report I read said 13, as he and his brother were discovered in 2005, but as I said earlier, its all rumour. As to your view on big game hunting, I couldn't agree more, I would no more shoot a lion than one of my dogs but, the fact is that people do want to, and the countries offer the...

    It helps increase my vocabulary :-)

    Big man.

    Really? so you're going to judge me for being a hunter? but not for riding the same bike you ride or driving the same (model) of car you drive? Because you do those things, so they must be all right, but if I do anything you happen to disagree with it's 'nuff said'? Sad, small minded, little...

    Big man.

    As I said it is a proven fact that big game hunting helps conservation, and in fact is the case in this country also, hunting and shooting organisations do massive amounts for conservation. The natural life span of lions in reserves or captivity is extended by up to ten years. The truth of...

    Big man.

    As a trained hunter myself, my biggest issue with this is that the dentist used the wrong tool for the job, thus causing the animal to suffer unnecessarily. The discussion on who led the animal out of the reserve etc is moot as all we know are rumours. It is also funny how the vast majority of...
