    RS the Main Street of Hamilton in rush hour only has two people in it and it is pretty straight from memory. Just ask the two of them to step aside for a moment. ha ha ha ha.
    Mac, Roy Lehndorf and initiaz like this.
    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

    go out to raglan and fire directly offshore. You'll hit an oilman, a greenie , or a 'Strayan

    I think The Tauranga branch of the NZDS have a range open day at the tech park on the Tauranga direct road 1st Sunday of each month so that would make it this coming Sunday ?
