    Cool man
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Damn I wish we had them up here. I would love to see one in the flesh
    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

    You could take a holiday to Nz Rushy and do some hunting before returning to the land of the long red tape.
