    Tsunami

    Hi Folks,

    I've not been able to be around a lot. Busy year this year, and I've missed this board.

    I woke up to news of a tsunami in the middle-south part of NZ, following a 7.6 quake.

    I'm just wondering how everyone is doing.

    Regards,

    Josh

    The shake was real but the tsunami is just a warning at this stage as I understand it. Mind you I am about as far away from the epicentre as you can get.

    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
