    Madds

    We lost a forum member and I a dear friend on the 13th.

    I will truly miss all the times we spent travelling, Clay bird shooting, hunting, filming and flying together in the magnificent South Westland Mountains.

    You were always a AA shooter in my books mate.

    I am sure you're smoking clays, swilling fine wine and sharing great yarns with the big fella.

    RIP Mate.

    Sad news R93.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I didn't recognise your friends name R93 so I looked up his profile and was shocked that he is less than a year older than me. It looks like he had lived a life to the full but was still taken way to young. Mate my sincere condolences to you. If there is anything we in this community can do to help at this time make sure you let us know. Lean on us with all your weight. We are up for it.

    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

    Thanks all. It shows what a stoic he was. I didn't know he was that ill.

    I received an email just a week ago from him.
    I'm a bit shocked. If I had of known I would have caught up with him and his partner a lot more than I have. I have not seen him much due to not shooting clays for the last year or so.

    He was generous to a fault and known all over the world on the sporting circuit.

    Being stuck in the jungle for another week is not helping as I will miss his funeral.
