    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

    Take care mate. Celebrate a life well lived. Thoughts are with you and yours.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    thanks gents .tonight somewhere ill dig out the great hank snow song "mother".Im an unabashed C&Wfan and many many year ago saw hank and his rainbow ranch boys live in greymouth as part of an NZ tour.shortly after his steel guitarist was gunned down outside the grand ol opry in nashville.
    mum azlso loved kris kristofferson ,she had that wonderful CD .the "silver tongued devil&I"

    There are friends ,
    who will want you ,but just for a day ,

    there are those
    youll think true
    but theyll cast you away.

    In this ol world of trouble ,
    theres one id recommend,

    Its your mother ,god love her ,
    shell be true till the end.


    she wont meet you ,tonight son ,
    when you crave her caress,
    she raised you to manhood ,
    now you lay her to rest


    the restt of the words escape me at present but i hope you get my drift.

    yes i most certainly will.when i see the mallards in the sky it brings back the heritage Im upholding.
    with friends like you lot even if only on the keyboard ,I know in my heart of hearts that the days to come ,and even in great sadness.someone out there is behind me saying"hang in there mate."
    true friendship has no price.
    i had a very uplifting moment today.speaking to my 1st cousin who shot the traditional clan hunting ground on lake brunner westcoast,and put two fat canada geese in his bag for a trip to the freezer.
    see even on the darkest day ,the wee ray of sunshine will make itself known.
