    Nearly $2200 NZ to learn what you could by attending a couple LR shoots for peanuts put on by forum members? Trust me there is nothing you could learn off them that couldnt from forum members and attending a couple of shoots. Go to the Auckland gong shoot and you will be surprised what you will take away from it.
    You would either have been bluffed or have way too much money to attend that cse, my personal opinion of course.

    haha yea it is alot ...but i was just gathering some thoughts and opinions. in the process of putting together my own (first) LR rifle at the mo and saw that. thought it might accelerate learning or possibly be of interest to you guys. but maybe not hahaha. good to know that we got some volunteers to teach me too!!

    Na, unless gut shot it can still be done. But who cares really when a wash sorts it. It was important when working on machines not to get blood everywhere. It wasnt a good look if you had loopy's to do later on and it looked like you gutted an animal inside the machine. Which happened when you had a newbie on the job.

    I made the mistake of attending an Auckland gong shoot - made some great friends, drooled over some nice gear, shot some of the nice gear, went from thinking 200yds is a long way to thinking 600yds is doable.......then bewarned have spent a shitload of money since Long range is addictive & very satisfying. R93 is on the right track.

    I like the advert for that course, think it went along the lines of "learn everything you need to know to hit a clay target with your 1st round at 1000m" or something like that.

    So, I googled and came up with this:

    Precision Shooting Canberra - Shooting.com.au

    seems to be a positive write up... As others have said its a lot of money, so I will not be the one to write up the NZ course.
