    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

    All the best...it must be the right thing to do or you wouldnt be doing it.

    Having never been to Canada but having been a few other places I have always thought the only other country I would like to live in permanently would be Canada.

    Go well stumpy, a big adventure. Heaps of opportunities ahead. Do as you have here grab life by the horns and wrestle it how you see fit. People often see foreigners as having get up and go because they've already got up and gone.
