    Show us your age. How olds this !!

    Mate at Sportsworld gave me these today when I was getting some ammo.

    They were given to him by a very elderly gent who no longer shoots anything ..

    Who remembers these and from what years approximately ?

    I of course are far too young !!!

    Be fair to say when these are gone there's no more perhaps ??

    No idea Happy but the packaging is reminiscent of the early sixties.
    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

    I worked in Tisdall’s and Norm Hansen’s sports shops after school in PNth during the early 1960’s. I remember them. So they are at least 50 years old I would say.

    Cheers

    That lines up with my theory on the packaging.

    Sorry to disappoint one of the seven dwarfs but I have never heard of, or seen them in my time.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Either way I would not put a bullet to them as they would be a collectable and probably worth some money to a collector

    Couldn't find a whole lot of info on the company or the product but from what i have gleaned they were produced from late 50's to mid 60's and only in nz it would seem as any reference to them was from kiwi sites. Not sure if they're worth anything but the packaging is certainly nice, love that style of artwork.
