    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Opo is a long way from the Mamaku's you need to get your facts right here Danny. No conjecture needed in an open forum plainly not helpful to person's involved.

    This is the third thread about this incident on this forum that I have seen.
    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

    I was in Toatoa last weekend hunting. Scary stuff alright and always seems to be hunters shooting guys from their hunting party.

    Not a product plug, and hopefully I'm not violating any forum rules but this device has the potential to save lives.

    Met both these guys while doing a trial in Makara and I have to add that it's more effective than the video lets on. I wasn't even able to acquire the target before the sensor went off.

    In my neck of the woods we're a lazy bunch and many of us sit in tree stands waiting for unsuspecting deer to wander over to our bait pile but in NZ it's apparent that something needs to be done. I'm not saying that it should become law but if everyone got on board then wouldn't it make a difference?

    I'd be happy to use something like that in New Zealand if it was availiable.

    Anything to protect others out there and myself.

    @7mmsaum Conceived, built and tested in NZ - true Kiwi ingenuity!

    It's available for purchase but still pretty expensive.

    Unfortunately, unless everyone else on the same block as the guy with the sensor is wearing a vest, then it aint going to work.
    I could see it becoming compulsory on some private blocks maybe, and the likes of Woodhill springs to mind. But getting a system of any kind to work on public land is never really going to happen without legislation.
