    Hilux I'm only 510 and well feed fitted me perfectly, complicated seat adjustment, turning circle was rather limited.
    Audi station wagon , complicated ...park break release by holding foot on break! A real pleasure to drive though.
    Mitzi people mover quite light and easy handling.

    Some might say we are taking the country by stealth Gibo but I say just as cream will always rise to the top of the vat so will Waikato find acceptance as the King of beers.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
