    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

    I'm in

    I've managed to acquire a few big bores over the last year. Be great to see what they can do and catch up with some forum guys I haven't met

    I'll put my hand up for this, might as well justify buying a 'silly' calibre.

    @ebf - Eb, my finger won't fit in the barrels of my pea shooters.
    Dependent on funds, may just roll up on the day for a m/cycle ride and meet a few forum members as well.
    PM the address and I'll use Google to guide me.
    Be nice to put faces to avatars and nicknames - not that I'll remember them 5 minutes later .
    @Martin358 - here's a good place to have some fun buddy.

    Hey boys, quick update from my side.

    Heading up to the farm this weekend to have a look at the range layout and sort out arrangements with D.

    Should be in a position to start opening up entries etc in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye on this thread.

    Unfortunately I am between large bores at the moment

    Could bring the 30-30 as it generally sits in the dark corner of the safe and seldom comes out.

    I would be happy though just to watch and help on the range, maybe help with drinking the beer after and perv over some large bores that should rightfully be in the tropics somewhere?
    @Savage1, @Tommy, @Gibo you be keen for a road trip down? Maybe tie in a hunt?

    Maybe we should have a go with a 12 gauge with slugs? Pretty similar to an old BP double

    You need to talk to @oraki about the .700 load. He was shooting pretty well with his. Made the shots pretty easy to spot on the target.
