    I wish they'd change the date for that show. Every f$#^en year I've got something else on. Or advertise earlier.

    Damn it Tommy, if I had known you were there I would have toddled on down the road.
    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

    Yes I totally should have sung out there mate, bit of an oversight on my part! I did wander around for a few hours, saw more than a few familiar faces. Needs a bar later in the afternoon next year, it'd be a great laugh.

    Haven't picked it up yet, it's at the guys place in Bombay. I'm going to use an engine crane from work, just need to suss out a flatbed ute to go get it. Crunched a few numbers, it weighs approx 500kg. At least it's got provision for an eye in the top.

    Was some really nice gear there at reasonable prices, would have enjoyed spending some more time there.

    PS, I asked permission before taking these pics

    how high can your crane lift. taking the lid off my ute is no problem.

    yes there were many I wants there, just not enough spending money,
    went home with a AR lower and a Muzzle "brake"
