    Things I either learn't or confirmed this weekend.

    1 @BRADS is a legend
    2 Mel, Brads wife, is also a legend
    3 You don't need custom guns or wildcats to shoot long out to silly distances
    4 You have just as much fun on the small close gongs
    5 @Alonzo is a legend, 2k gong and a 315m magpie, transport and 12 hours of conversation.
    6 Shit happens to the best of us
    7 300yd is a long way for a standing shot
    8 1850yds is possible with a 7mm08 @ebf
    9 @BRADS is a legend

    And thanks to @Dorkus for the education on rum and the stock market and generally living up to your forum handle, @Philipo for the entertaining auction, @Gibo for just being a good bugger, @gadgetman for being a courier for me @P38 for running the range and there is plenty of others out there.

    The work and effort put in by Duncan and Mel shouldn't be overlooked or understated, they're a very honest and genuine couple who give a lot more than they get, neither this past weekend or the one a year ago would ever have happened if it wasn't for them. Cheers for a great weekend.

    Bloody stoked I got to meet you all. Brads and Mel, take a bow, you're gold-plated good sorts of the highest order. A South Island version meet would be fair, it's a long way for all you alleged main islanders to go every year, and in keeping with the Toby Tour. Wherever it is, I'm keen as aye

    Good to meet you @Tommy although I was slightly disappointed that you are not in fact a tall black man in a yellow suit. Cheers for the burn on your rattle gun, very cool!
