    My First Hunt

    My first hunt down near Ranfurly went well, heaps of goats and hares, and two turkeys. Thanks Jeremy and Adam for giving me the chance

    Well done Cam
    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

    Its a .22 Savage, one of the cheapies from Gun City. I'm still a student, so can't really afford much more than the cheapest. It seems to shoot alright, although couldn't get it sighted in properly, was always grouping to the bottom right of the target. Bought it on Thursday, and had a few notches on it by Sunday

    I had no idea until that day, and for the next two days during which there was no running water to wash with, meaning I smelt like goat, my rifle smelt like goat, and my clothes smelt like goat.
