    Classic
    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

    Sorry, think it was the baked beans for breakfast.

    I was showing TR the lenticular clouds produced by the Nor-Wester on Saturday too.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    the rising of a full moon when Aussie has had bush fires can look rather spectacular too....you get big pinky/orange ball lifting up over horizon,if you capture it before its more than half up it does look rather like H-Bomb images from the past...that is a rather neat photo youve got,one for the mantle piece for sure.

    Yeah, spectacular, Africa gets like that in winter too,a mixture of dust, smoke and a temperature inversion create some epic sunsets and rises.
