    Will 2017 be better for you than 2016 ?

    An unscientific poll :-) but curious. And be honest.

    Voted yes, 2016 was a very good year for me. Life gets better as you get older.

    Yes. I think I've managed to teach myself to shoot well enough. Now it is time to learn to hunt. That I think will be a steep and difficult learning curve and I should have done it decades earlier. Thankfully I'm a stubborn and determined decrepit old bugger.

    It is time you sold your business and retired you old fart. Oh and if you do win lotto, I am happy to accompany you to Argentina.
    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

    Stubborn and determined are good qualities GM. They are the brothers of perseverance which is even better.
