    Photo heavy road trip

    We got up at 0400 too bloody early for a road trip up to the Sika Show & to catch up with some other Forum members

    Picton waiting for the Rolly Boat



    Stopped off at SSRNZ to pick up a CA10 308 that had been sent there for us to deliver.

    Had a look at Scotts neat little 10" 308



    Nice drive further up north to deliver the CA 10 & put the first shots through it, I'm so lucky



    Then I thought, itís really cool & doesnít recoil at all, but what about a go with something bigger ?

    There was a really lightweight 375/408 Cheytac improved there so I thought why not



    That was pretty cool but this steel shooting caper is really addictive so I wanted to have a go with something bigger



    I'm quite a good shell holder I'm told.



    Another good drive & I was there at the Sika Show, found a nice little bolt action rifle.



    Then not far away I found a nice BIG bolt action rifle & its big brother



    The Aussies were there in force.



    So being good bugger I took a picture of one of their best friends for them.



    I saw quite a few nice mounts.





    Some more nice rifles.



    And some really nice Leica optics.



    I even got a close look at a Driven Shooting stand.



    Had some pretty excellent Venison Burgers






    Then it was time to go back to base, we popped back in to Scottís to see the progress with his new light rifles he is building



    Then we were back on to the Rolly ship



    I had a room to myself, nice & quite.



    Just perfect for catching up with what I'd missed on the Forum.



    All in all a great Road Trip
    I MISS YOU MUCKO

    MH you were at the Sika show at the same time as I was but never gave me a call. You are certainly gathering a few hat tatts by the look of things.

    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
