    Think I might go get a bottle of Canada dry ginger ale, and a couple lemons.
    I tried some of that a few months ago.... Well a lot actually...
    Very nice.
    Had a snort of some Alberta premium as well.
    I arrive in Vancouver Tues morning.
    Think I will grab a bottle.

    Well that was a fail really @Tommy. Standard .22LR turned them in to spoons after 3 or 4 hits. I have consigned them to the bin.

    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 haven't shot .22 in donkeys yonks but in the last couple of days I have sent a couple of hundred rounds down range using the 10/22 and it has all come back. I must admit I am a bit shaky off hand these days but that is most likely the effects of age.

    Fuckin hard night possum shooting, ton of rain, mud up to my knees, fitbit counted 11km covered, crapload of steep terrain, only got 3 but bloody good fun nonetheless, nights like that really give you an appreciation for the nice flat farm you're used to shooting on haha. Pretty sure i did a lot more falling than walking as well lol, any advice for cleaning boots soaked inside and out in mud? i just hosed them down but that's probably not good for the leather...

    Just told my missus not to pat my tummy as she would break her nails on my rippling abs. Can't stop the bitch laughing.

    I don't know about Bigfoot but if a big old Kodiak Grizzly slaps you on the arse it is very likely he will have his wicked way with you.
