    New Poster

    Hi as a new poster, I got asked to come here and introduce myself and confirm the following:

    I am not a Nigerian lawyer with $100,000,000 in a trust account...... I don't care what ethnicity I am or anyone else for that matter but a 100 million in a trust account would suit me fine,
    I would use it to buy land and build a super cool range and open it to all genuine shooters at no cost, (Snowflakes, politicians and news reporters would need to be interviewed by the firearm community before being allowed in, don't think that would go well for any, if not all of them!)

    A Stuff reporter looking for dirt. See above, stuff reporters and most other reporters today make up the news to suit their agenda rather than just reporting it , NO, I am not a stuff reporter.

    "Also we've had a few new members recently ripping off people in sales". Scumbags! treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.

    Recently unemployed. ( due government covid scam) Shooter of varmints up and down the whole country; Wallaby, Rabbits, Possums, Magpies mostly 204 Ruger Calibre of choice, and 17 HMR. Previously used AR15 which allowed for pigs as well, but we all know what happened to that.

    Currently living in Franklin NZ

    Well, welcome....I think.

    You don't shoot pigs because you have lost your AR15???

    The 204 Ruger shooting a 50gr projectile at 3300fps not cut it?

    Just asking....

    Cheers
    Phil

    Thanks guys for the welcome, Yes Phil, the 204 Ruger would definitely take out a pig with a well placed 39grainer, to be fair, but the AR15 with the 30 round mag allowed for half the mob to be taken out and with two of us strategically placed above the valley, almost the whole mob as the dogs moved them into the open! If you are serious about pigs then there is better choices than the 204. (in my opinion)

    Welcome Harry H.
    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

    Nothing better than sitting up on a crown with a mate talking politics (politics is easy, just not for politicians who have never had a real job) and general chat sharing the bunnies as they appear at 3-400 metres in the early evening.
