    Fuck me dead the media are as useless as tits on a bull. Just saw a report on TV3 news (news hub) doing an article on duck shooting. The sheilah reporting saying "Father teaching young son how to use a rifle (no surprises that it was a shotgun)" and then "a warden visiting to make sure they were not using lead bullets". I ask you! Where do they find these numb nut dick wads?
    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'm not long back from a quick trip to Timaru and back. Just under 8l/100km. Not too bad for an old '97 Forester with over 343 thousand clicks on the clock.

    Pfft.

    Flat just aspires to be like Chch to Timmers. And light wishes it could travel that straight. I won't use any fuel running the air-con, being the initial NZ new base model it doesn't have any of that stuff, but I can wind the window down or turn the heater up. No hair driers. When I look under the bonnet I can see road. Old school.

    for 2 years I drove from Ashburton to Chrtstchurch (living in Ashburton and working in ChCh) and back daily. Only about 4 real bends tops not including the gentle "fake" bends. Boring drive would be the understatement of the year.

    The "Tram Road" is worse with fewer other vehicles to get your attention. Every couple of weeks growing up someone would nod off and fall off the road. Still remember a rental Toyota Starlet that an overseas visitor did this in, there was not a straight panel on it, event the back seat had a bend in the middle. She walked away with a small cut to the elbow.

    That's the one other car I would consider buying. Those things are immortal.

    Hey you offshore islanders, look over there! ...

    Yep, should sneak through boarder control again easily enough on Thursday.

    Oh well, looks like I'm off to Palmy again for a flying visit. Bro was bidding on a car auction, he doesn't need any more, "But it's an auction so I'll just see what I can get it for." So I fly to Welly, bus to Palmy, hit town about midday and back to Welly for a 5pm ferry.

    Ok you lot, you can look at what you were doing again.
