    New old guy...

    Hey all, signed up over a year ago but system would not send a confirmation email.....gave up in the end.
    Received message yesterday from administrators, so tried again......and well here I am after 14 months!!
    Have been a member over at the other pub since 2012, and been lurking here for the past couple of years.

    Will be good to be able to interact with all you folk.....wifey won't be pleased, as I will no doubt spend too many $$ in the buy/sell section.
    Grew up with all the family involved in hunting/shooting, childhood memories of been taken on hunts with the old mans crew into the Polars hut and Pukareao hut (spelling?) in the Ureweras.
    Cheers

    Welcome Creeper

    Some of my best memories have been when hunting with my old man too

    There's no doubt the Ureweres is a very special place.

    Looking forward to hearing more about you and your adventures

    Cheers

    Yeah Poplars in long gone. This was back in the 70's as a kid. Would go in there via access road opposite Okahu Rd with the old man and his mates out of BOP NZDA.
    Back then old man would drive his Holden special right to the door of the Pukareao hut

    Welcome. Get into it.
    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
