    Leave is booked so I’ll be there if I am still on the right side of the grass.

    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!

    If you aren't arrange to be cremated and we can all stuff you into cartridges or down the muzzle and launch you into the air for a proper send off

    Marginal

    You could always just buy a box of 45/70 and come play with a decent big bore...

    You bring yours, I'll bring mine, we can have a little "smaller fellas" section all of our own.
    Seriously though, apart from the possible need of gun bearers and the extra time it would take to run the shoot is there any reason you can't bring several larger specimens to either use or let other less well endowed folks have a go?

    Marty, no problem bringing other toys. Same as last year, we should have time for everyone to have a go with various rifles after the last stage.

    I'd prefer if guys keep it simple and use one rifle for the comp. It makes allocating classes a lot easier on my side. I'm happy to consider exceptions for the charging lion stage, muzzle loader will struggle there, but again, if we have a muzzle loader class, can always make it a single shot at the lion...

    I would not even ask.... If those toys were operational I think the element of surprise would be the best tactic!

    @40mm, on a serious note.

    The 57 will be fine, you might get a mild ribbing for bringing the low-powered version of a undersized cartridge, haha.

    We had a couple of 9.3x62s last year.

    I'll bring some bbq sauce for the ribs.

    I keep getting told to up size the chamber, but I dont want to molest it.

    Maybe next year I'll have something a little more manly ready....
