    Which stand was that? I'd be keen to buy one of those uppers to start an ar 15 build.

    It’s worth a visit, not a small show and I’m sure it’ll grow.

    It's all good Greg.
    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

    I saw 300WinMag driving in as I was driving out. He looked like he was on a mission.

    Ha ha, was only going for a look and to catch up with Geezejonesy.
    Left my credit cards at home but did drool over those AR type shotguns and tried to figure out where I could use them, they look bloody nice. I have ditched a lot of gear over the last 6 months or so and had a very nice Sako 300wm with a Ken Henderson carbon fibre stock made up so will use that for just about everything.

    Call me paranoid but I couldn't get over the number of people waving guns around and pointing at people and the next door counter selling ammo. Passed the Police tent/desk and deserted, what I did notice was heaps of Chinese drooling over AR's and such.
    Anyway it was worth a look, the only things I bought was a hotdog, chips and coke.

    Tried to get my boy to come along but he was intent on playing "Fortnite" on his PS4 but he wasn't interested.
