    It is a good thing you do Brads. Keep the fire burning through the young.

    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

    Meant to be the biggest moon in decades on Monday so thought I'd take some practice shots to get my eye in.

    Just been to a family birthday gathering for my older twin brother and sister. A proper forum get together with @TimeRider, @sheppard84 and @longrange308. Good to see to my older brother for the first time in about 5 years since he moved to Motueka.

    Pretty sure I mentioned it as we were all sitting round the table in Feb sorting out some slightly under used fishing gear. Little bugger turns 60 three days after @TimeRider turns 20 this month.
