    My addiction

    I'm Shorty & I'm addicted to hunting.....
    I've been nosing around on here for a while & finally signed up last week. Some good info posted on here & hope to contribute where I can. Southland born & bred I have been hunting & fishing since my teens, (there well past now before someone asks) I spend a bit of time reloading to support my habit & am keen to use the buy & sell to help with that. Owned a few dogs over the years some better than others but always of the pointer variety. Current pup project for deer is a 6 mth old wire haired viszla that I'm putting through the deer dog training program.
    Cheers guys

    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

    I would be interested in a 'run down' on the Wire Haired Viszla so far - is it as bouncy and silly as a smooth coat or more steady etc ?? Oh and welcome, by the way

    all those under 6 foot will be the underclass and do the work, those over 6 foot shall be the master class

    Fucking Navy measurements are a bit off! You are fifteen inches short of a right guess.
