    Right'o punters hers's the latest on the Shoot.

    I've been speaking to Brads & after todays announcement of more level 3 restrictions & the uncertainty of what bloody lever / travel restrictions are coming from week to week we have decided to sadly Cancel the TB Shoot for this year.

    Whether you agree with Lockdowns or not & all this other C19 crap ( NO I'm certainly not a fan of this current government & Covid BS ) they are the rules & we don't want to be responsible for a forum get together turning into a "super spreader" event. The press would have a field days with over hyped lies & would be a PR disaster for the already harassed legal Firearms owners of NZ.


    I know it's not what people were wanting to hear but the call needed to be made & with two weeks to go hopefully this hasn't be to much of an inconvenience for people, certainly with the current situation it makes planning & organizing event's a complete nightmare. We could of postponed, but it's easier just to cancel for now.

    If you wish for a refund of the entry fee PM Brads, the remaining dollars in the Kitty will be donated to the CCS

    Unfortunately it's the right call to make Philipo.
    Lets just hope for more sensible "rules" for next year.

    D. To all those anticipating a sharing of Rushy’s Waikato big bots, I will think of you as I drink them all on my lonesome.
    F. Fuck it again.

    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

    Bugger.

    Unfortunate call, but I understand.

    My entry fee can be a donation.

    Frustrating as I shot the new rifle to 600m yesterday and one group was about 3" and the other a bit smaller, which is exceptional for me, needless to say my telescoping waist mounted monopod was deployed after such a feat.

    She's been a great run & a shit run re the TGMS

    The first event was an epic weekend, it evolved from what was meant to be a small get together hosted by Brads & his lovely wife Mel into a juggernaut, bugger me there was a lot of people, utes & tents everywhere but like many things that just made it better

    The second in Onga Onga was pretty much the same, just with better plans put into place to coupe with the numbers turning up, but also so much more work for Duncan & Mel to do & organize.

    The third in Kurow was an awesome weekend, Harry G was the instigator of this one & did a great job to get everything put together, was great to catch up with all the SI grew.


    Then the March ChCh attack occurred & while an attempt was made to run an event that year it was just not going to happen, the media pressure on FAL holders & all the logistics of trying to run a shoot at that time was a nightmare

    Then the last two years it's been the poxy Covid, sadly with the braindead new range restrictions coming in next year this might be the last Onga Onga TGMS, but who knows what's down the line


    I'll probably run an online auction again at the end of the month as it's nice to keep Toby's memory alive with a donation in his & the NZHS forum, plus think it's good for the public image of us on here to support a great cause

    Bit of a bummer but the right decision.
    I guess it wouldn't have been the same even if we had it with you Aucklanders still locked up.
    Donate my entry too please.

    I’ve been to all of the Toby memorial shoots and met some great people on here. A shame it can’t happen again this year but that’s the world we live in.
    Donate my entry as it’s going to a good cause.
