    Another all night session with @alan last night, got home about 8:15am. I shot 1, Alan knocked over 204 for a total that wasn't predicted after some of the others only got something like 84 from the previous shoot. The first 100 came up after just under 3 hours. I retired early from shooting and took up driving duties after an altercation with a Macrocarpa limb, receiving a punch to my right eye making vision not too hot. Great fun.

    Went out in North Canterbury last evening with my mate Dave to shoot some rabbits. Well it poured and blew and rained. We arrived at the farm and parked giving the weather a few minutes to settle. I spotted some rabbits about 4 metres outside the truck window so this then turned into a comedy scramble for ammo, bolt, rifle in the confined space of the cab. It eventually came together and I stealthily opened the window and Dave let strip-- 4 with 5 shots in around 2 minutes. He was wrapped because he hasn't been shooting for ages let alone firing the mighty Toz-- pretty sure there was some rust blown into the first bunny. From there we walked around in the rain for about an hour with lead flying and bunnies dying. Surprised they were out in numbers. Eventually the rain got worse (or way better for the farm as very dry). Ended up with 21 for an hour. Name:  Blythe Valley rabbits.jpg

    Good work
    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

    Another session with @alan on the local farm last night. Numbers were way down in the high population areas but Alan still managed a record high tally of 232 for the night with phenomenal shooting. I injured myself earlier in the day so just stuck to driving, finding, spotting, navigation duties.

    53 rabbits and 3 roos with the 223 for an evening wander, then a mouse with the Sportivas and another bunny with the truck on the way home.

    I saw something in the grass this evening, got out of the vehicle with the 222 in hand and slowly crept to the gate, carefully eased around the strainer post to see Mr bunny hiding in the tall grass in a wee hollow, I'd already made sure that the scope was on its lowest setting and at three yrds I gave Mr bunny the coup de grace. Not much of an outcome for the rabbit.
