    Yup

    Viv was a very special lady. Still shooting at Seddon a couple of weeks ago. Always had a smile, happy to chat and willing to help. She found an Omark king screw in Din's workshop and brought it down to the range for me at last years nationals.

    They were married for 63 years. Some lovely photos of them posted on FB in remembrance.

    Condolences to the Collings and wider Karori Rifle Club family.

    It was a very sad email from Nicole.

    I'm going to miss both of them,having a gun couple walking distance from my house who was always up for a yarn, and they both had good yarns, was something of great value.

    My thoughts are with the family
