    About time I introduced myself,(currently Motueka based, normally masterton)

    Gidday guys, realized I'd never gotten around to introducing myself. I'm based in the wairarapa but have spent the last 9 months traveling for work. I'm a machine operator/ site supervisor for a wellington based Earthmoving company. Currently in motueka for another couple on months. I enjoy getting out in the hills either on foot or by the aid of my 4x4, I find it relaxing regardless of the out come, also enjoy throwing my swag in my truck and cruising around. This forum has been extremely helpful as every one is keen to help out and there is a wealth of knowledge. Any one have any go to places around here that I should check out while I'm down here. ( not after anyone's spot, just a cool place to go for a drive/ explore)
    Currently have a range of rifles including, howa 7mm08 , ruger 10/22 , tikka 17hmr and tikka 7mm rem mag.
    Photo of my rig thats gets me around the country.
    Cheers for the help from everyone on my previous posts.

    Welcome aboard Matt.
    If you are in Mot you had better head up the Cobb valley if you haven't already.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Gidday Matt, welcome to town
    We were up where your photo was taken yesterday, not much of a view with the fog and rain, neat spot for a cruise though. Bit chilly on the quads.

    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
