    @Maca49 not wrong there.
    I've been grizzling about not going backwards pay wise, but I reckon I just have to get out into the next job that pops up and try and find some weekend work to make the shortfall until something better comes along.
    @northdude yup you are right-A boss is still the boss. We all make mistakes and we still have to cop it from them if we do. That's what they are there for.
    As long as they do their part as a business owner and hopefully show some respect to the guys that are trying to do their best for them, then they get the big tick from me.
    If I know they have my back I'll always have theirs

    Well that didn't work out too well, most of the bullets didn't even hit the target at 100m, so I guess a 1:10 twist does not stabilise the 6mm 103gr eld-x!

    On ya Gibo. Out there doin it. Now what the fuck is eezox?
    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

    Yeah, took a few rifles over to the BOP NZDA range at the TECT park. Went a couple of times early this year but hadn't managed to get back due to the health issues. Looks like I'm having fairly major surgery next month so today was probably the last chance for a while.
    I'm hoping to be up and running again by March (well, maybe up and walking, I don't do running!). Doctors may have other ideas...

    Got a nice hare last night, haven't gotten one in ages. Don't see many at all on this property sadly, biggest one yet though! Legs are salting at the moment, destined for confit

    Yeah Yeah."Honestly officer it was only draped over it."
    They never believe you(me). But in most cases they have good reason not to.
