    Waitangi Day from a Yank

    I hope everyone enjoyed your holiday and stayed safe. I know we tend to bend an elbow a bit when we celebrate many of our major holidays.

    I hope you celebrated over there in the traditional kiwi way by burning a flag and having an argument about sovereignty
    Or mowing your lawns

    Pointer let's not forget Tama's little episode of shooting the flag either.
    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

    We did an all day attendance at a local public event on a stinking hot day in heavy shirt, trouser and boots with thick socks. Got back to the station, opened the fridge and there was 1 Jim Beam left. FFS. Have to say cold Tui is not bad as a chaser
