    Nice
    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

    It's an NZ head, was told at the beginning that if I wanted a nice job done it would take 18 months. He's busy so guessed he must be good.

    Heavy head, had to shoot over to Bunnings to get a decent wall hook to hold him.

    I ended up getting over 100kg's of sausages & meat patties out of him so all in all he's satisfied a few people. My Aussie scrub bull will hang alongside him soon.

    Bugger all of a story, surprised him early one morning bedded down next to a patch of bush. By memory nailed him from 180 yds, 2 shots in the engine room to drop him. I think there's a pick of him on the deck, shot a shitty 10 pointer the day before this one which took a lot more effort and time.
