    Hi!

    Hi everyone. I'm pretty much a total newbie when it comes to hunting and shooting, but I'm keen as to give it a proper go. I've gone out a couple times with family looking to get some deer and ducks but haven't seen anything! That's pretty much the extent of my experience.

    I'm currently waiting on my firearms license to be approved and turn up in the mail, so in the mean time I've been doing my research on things such as firearms setup, what/where to hunt, what gear to take, etc.
    Please forgive me for when I inevitably bombard you all with questions in the future haha.

    Anyway, thought I'd introduce myself.

    Cheers!

    Ben

    Welcome Ben. Ask me anything but beware of the answers. I have been known to take the piss on the odd occasion. Gibo on the other hand is a straight up character that would never lead you astray. Now here is what you have to ask yourself. "Is Rushy already taking the piss by saying that about Gibo". Ha ha ha ha

    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
