    There are quite a few GCs in Canty on the foum. Ask nicely, bring beer. You'll have a companion before you know it and won't even have to show some leg. Good luck mate

    Pops, my understanding has always been that if you have a firearm in your possession you should have your FAL with you (much like you should have your drivers license with you when driving). That said, if you are stopped without your DL there is a grace period in which you can produce it at a Police Station so I imagine (don't know though) that a similar circumstance might prevail.
    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

    Just spoken to the arms officer and he said that I am in the system and good to go. But did say as you know your license number keep it with you as with my DL.
