    Not too bad as it probably wouldn't get fired that often.

    Its a very nice rifle, would have brought it but they wanted too much, 1K more than listed & you can't chuck a scope on it so I didn't grab it, the open sights weren't finished when I viewed it, might be now ??

    Meet in Kurow 10ish Sat morning. Head up to farm and put gear in woolshed. Have a quick lunch then go shooting
    We have some informal shooting at targets at 50yds to start with. Usually a paper target shooting 4 rounds off the sticks and 4 freehand.
    Then have some balloons at 50, 40 ,30, 20yds, 1 shot at each target.
    This year Harry and I are going to try and organise a moving target and hope to set up a course that you walk through and shoot targets.
    Usually have a few gongs at 200ish yards to shoot.
    And the infamous frying pan at 100 yds.

    Back to woolshed for dinner.
    Saturday night is try and get some wallabies (doesn't have to be a big bore, a few .223 used last year)
    Sunday possible wallaby shoot in the am.

    Rifle calibre is whatever you have. Ideally a big thumper, but we have had 7x64, 7-08 in the past.

    Hi.

    Is there still any space available for this event/shoot? It sounds like a lot of fun.

    Yep plenty of spaces left.

    Probably a good time for people to either reply here or PM me if you are attending. We will limit it to 15 people this year.
    No cost, you mioght just be asked to bring something for the dinner on Saturday night.
    You will need to self cater for all the other meals (Sat lunch, Sun breakfast, Sun lunch although every other year we have gone by mid morning Sunday)
    Accomodation is a woolshed. You need your own sleeping gear including stretcher/mattress, and cutlery crockery etc.

    Any other questions, fire away.
