    Hello there

    Hi everyone, Mike from Rangiora, on the very slow conveyerbelt towards obtaining FAL. Did the safety course yesterday so maybe only 9 months to go.
    Currently shoot rabits in the backyard with a 22 air rifle.

    Welcome to the forum
    Well done on getting the ball rolling with the license. I'll adapt an old saying, even the journey to a firearms license, starts with a single application

    Welcome on board. You'll learn patience & stalking skills with an air rifle.

    Welcome
    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

    Thanks everyone for the welcome. Im nearly 60 so a bit late getting into this. Ive only ever fired 3 firearms in my lifetime a .303 when I did a firearms saftey course in 1979. Then the RNZAF gave us all L1A1's for our recruits course, they are pretty cool, but of course off the menu now. And one day I fired a colt 20mm cannon from a Skyhawk only about 10 rounds till it jammed and we packed up and went home.
