    She's going to be a cracker of a day

    Every now and then a man knows that he is in for a great day. Today is going to be one of them for me as believe it or not I am going goat shooting with a couple of good Kiwi blokes that I have met through this forum for the first time in my life.

    I checked the zero on my .243 on ANZAC day and was happy with the result but this morning I thought I should check it again as I don't want to pull a duffer in front of the guys today. As often happens at my place there was a fallow buck up the back just on sun up so I thought to myself "why not prove it on a live target. It was blowing 40 bastards when I got up there but long story shortened I popped it from 80 metres out and there was a deer hanging on the hook by 0830. I will deal with that later (or more probably tomorrow morning).

    I will tell more of the goat shoot when I get back.
    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

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

    I am actually looking forward to the goat shoot because I have never done it. Are you guys serious about not being able to see the picture? I deleted the original and have put it up again.
