    New enthusiast. Back into it.

    Hi everyone. I'm an ex pistol club shooter, and hunter. I chucked the guns in when I started a family 13 years ago. Due to time and money. The boys are 11 and 13 now. And ones keen as mustard to hunt hunt hunt. We are based in Tauranga. First thing I noticed getting back into it was my old local small game farms (rabbits etc) are now subdivisions. How difficult it's been to find a spot. Anyways, I hope this is a useful platform to chat hunting and firearms. I'm all into family's that play together stay together. Even my wife and other son are keen to walk the farm lands sometimes with us. The pic attached is logan, slating a bunny with a 22 henry on open sites. Soooooo... hello to you all!

    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
