    Newbie fom Auckland

    Hi guys
    Watching this site for a while now but never post anything. Just reading.
    Long story short is that i start shooting again after 19 years.
    Daughther want to learn too so i am getting rifles and got a friend with a range on his lifestyle block.
    Already got a .22, Howa mini 223, Brno 243, Howa 308 and recently another Brno 308.

    Thats all for now so safe shooting.

    Cheers

    Deon

    Thanks guys. @40mm i only have a photo of the 243 here. Bought cheaply, front sight a little damage and no rear sight. So i chop it off just behind the front sight and have it threaded for suppressor. Put an DPT over barrel on. Have not shot any groupings but can hit a 6x4 plate at 250 meters easily with factory ammo. Still got to do a couple of things to tidy it up.

    Hoping to pick up the 308 by next weekend.

    Welcome aboard
    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

    Howdy and welcome, that looks like an interesting trigger on the Brno, not something I have seen before.

    Thanks. That is the set trigger the Brno's coming with. Push it forward to set it. Much lighter then.

    Straight blade set trigger. Unusual to be sure! Welcome to the forum Deon.
