    Shooting the breeze in Ohakune, caution contains F&C's

    I woke up Saturday morning at Andys place in Taihape to the sound of wind chimes clanging during intermittent wind gusts & walk into the lounge to see on the TV news that "The weather bomb" had hit

    Fuck a little wind'n'rain ain't guna stop us so we load up & prepare to head off, walking out side to the sounds of straining tree limbs & a bloody gust of wind blows my Oakley's off my hat 10yards and face plants em onto the road not a good start but off we go to Kune


    We get there & meet up with nztezer and his mate at the farm house HQ more fullas turn up Striker, Andys mate Ivan & his wife Sue with Snowman in tow & Mossie so we sit around the lounge & get the fire crankin while the rain keep fallin
    then the gun cases & binos come out with some nice rigs & pieces of kit, everyone has a fondle & we do a tally on work out theres about 100k worth of rigs sitting in the corner

    With the weather is not clearing & the rain radar not looking to flash we decide to cancel any thought about shooting & crack open a beer & bomb back some stubbies after a couple of hours there is a slight break in the rain we hope in the wagons & go for a drive to set up some targets ready for Sunday morning

    The rest of the night was spent by the fire eating'n'drinking & spinning bullshit


    Sunday morning & the weather was not to bad, until after brekfast when the showers return, Arh fuck it lets go out for a look anyway & hopefully it will clear
    we then proceed in a convoy to the shooting mound & Andy decides to take us on the scenic route, with after 3" of rain was lets just call it "greasy"

    Nother the mighty Sube couldn't handle ( who needs a 4x4 ute ) by the time we get there the rain had cleared & with the wind gusting between 5-25mph coming from left-right we get sorted & start bombing at 2 sets of 6" & 10" square gongs @ 470y & 675y (approx can't remember exactly ) the wind was making it bloody hard work at even 470y with the wind being so intermittent, Mossie had his Remmy running sweet & soon everyone had their eye in, some were even using my "tacticoool shooting pillow"

    after a while Andy & Mossie tidy the plates up & head out to put a round 15" gong at 1020y with everyone got onto after a bit of "guessimating" how mush windage was required & at the end of the shoot 5 of us had a go with Andy's 338 TRG & all hit the 1020 with one shot

    We are packed up by 1:30-2pm & have a leisurely drive through the mud ( go the mighty Sube again, I thought I was fuck but nothing a bit of flat to the floor horsepower couldn't fix ) back to HQ before heading home


    Thanks again Andy, can't wait for the next one



    Heres a couple of pics Im sure someone will have some more/better ones

    Mint report Philipo, learnt alot, including the existence of "the good" forum and "the unspeakable side". keen to go along to the next one and actually have ammo and some rounds that are going a bit faster than a low flying bumble bee.

    I was a deadly slow 2411 fps. i have a sneaking suspicion that it was your browning that did that and you just didnt tell anyone due to shear embarrassment
