    Introduction the second time

    Hey everyone,

    Had to start up a new account as couldn't get in to my old one (un4giv3n) as the reset password function didn't seem to want to work.

    Anyways, thought I'd make a post using this account now as last time I posted I was living in Hamilton. I am moving to Christchurch in a couple weeks. Have FAL application on the go at the moment but done a bit of shooting with NZDF/NZCF prior to that including instructing cadets with safe and proper firearms use.

    Once I get the FAL and a set up I'll be keen to get out and learn hunting. Also be getting back in to archery once I get a proper setup again so might even give traditional bow hunting a crack if there are places around.

    Welcome to the forum.
    I think bow hunting for me, is something you give a go once you find getting critters with a rifle too easy. I'm a long way from that yet

    Welcome one and all.
    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

    No shortage of options where you are for buying any rifle you like.

    Hi

    Before getting my FA license, I thought about bow hunting and assuming this way maybe is more fair to animals. But after study for a while, I felt arrows will bring more injuries to a sizable games than a clean shot from rifle. Maybe for small games, rabbits etc. bows and arrows are quiet could reach out to a shotgun range.
    Always short of one more good fishing & hunting friend.
