    Can never bring too much ammunition.
    Bad choices do kill.

    And a bayonet, might be a worthwhile hunting accessory.

    He did pretty well with his shooting/ batting total. A revolver would've been handy.

    Might not have had time to reload even if he did have enough.

    Yep, imagine if old Ben had a knife strapped into one hand and a bunch of broken airline shot bottles taped into the otherwhen he finished shooting and clubbing. Tough old coot, I reckon he pissed on the pack leader early in the fight and must have been backed into some sort of corner so they couldn’t get behind him to have dealt to that many. Legend.
    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

    Think we need a Kiwi version.

    It was only when the carcasses of 11 huge fiordland sandflies were discovered that the facts of this tragedy could be discerned..
