    Two guns Two weeks old

    After a rather empty gun safe for two long I decided I wanted one gun that was light, cheap to run, cheap to make, and I could use for every hunting occasion, brake on for the tops, in me pocket for the bush
    I wanted something with enough juice to tip them at 700yards.
    Terminator Products sorted me this in no time, 7/375R 7.6lbs VX6 on the top

    So after 3 shots to zero at 100, its off up the hill to try and shoot some steel.
    Forum member 338 has also just brought a Terminator Products 338 Edge and wanted to see what it shots like at 1000.
    These photos are of our first shots not dressed up in anyway.

    We will update this post as we fire the guns more and stretch out these ranges
    Thanks Kiwi Greg for making two light lady's that seem to shoot rather well considering it's very early days

    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Mate that is a top group even with a flyer
    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
