    AUCKLAND GONG SHOOT VIDEO

    Yet another successful gong shoot has passed with success going again to Matt Ryan .We had many want to come but there mommy's didn't allow them out to play so we had only 6 shooters with 2 from the forum shooting and Rushy marking for us so 3 in total -slowly gaining enthusiast .
    Again we had great weather and winds to make it a little trickier for all -I was impressed with the competency shown by some that are not seasoned veteran shooters to handle the conditions -still as noted last time a good spotter is invaluable to a shooter .
    We laid signs out this time for easy spotting and took distance reading to help those without range finders.
    End of day we had a damned fine bbque with Rushy supplying many satisfying sausages and me a few bottles of wine -all in all a successful shoot.
    One thing did happen the following day the neighbor lent across the fences and bleated like a stuck pig that he had had enough of the 7 hours of noise --were in the country but his house is close --anyone know the legals on complaining people and the law ??

    Jeez that video of yours makes me look fat (or is that the sausages?)!
    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

    EB! the cheek of it "but there mommy's didn't allow them out to play" hmmmmm...

    My excuse is that real life came first, and I had 17 Ewes that have been lambing this last week or so and I still have a couple left to lamb, so thats where I had to be at the weekend.... I know sheep stations don't bother too much, but one or two lambs drowned in the stream is high % of loss for me.

    I would really would have liked to be there, but thats how it goes sometimes. Good to see that it all went off OK and hope to be up there soon to see if I can get my hit rate higher.

    I'm am really gutted I couldn't make it. Bloody funny work hours. Maybe ask the neighbor when he is going to be away eg Labour weekend and arrange it for then. I will take time off if I have to to make it to the next one.

    Nice video Brian. Good to see Matt is keeping up his practice. How many shoot positions did you have for the day? What time did the shoot finish up?
