    Yes, farewell Matt and thanks. His legacy for me was he sold me his press back in June.
    We had a few long natters on the phone the last being the day after the election. We had similar strong views on the govt of the day.
    I was due to ring him a couple of weeks later but I left it too late.

    I am very saddened to learn of this. I went through high school in the same class with Matt. May you rest in peace old friend.

    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

    Jeez.

    That’s a kick in the guts. This fella really helped me with lots of advice about prepping rifles for paint (Duracote) and sold me some quality gear at very reasonable prices. Proper gentleman.

    So sorry to hear this news.

    RIP mate.

    R.I.P Matt hope the ones you left behind can find some closure and celebrate your life as well as mourn your loss.

    Bloody hell. Bought bit of gear off him. Would drop it off to my son in Tok saying " he'll fix me up ". Would chat to my son about hunting and where he had been. Very sad.

    The nicest of men.
    A font of knowledge, with a genuine love of the outdoors.
    We reconnected when he answered my call at the other pub for someone to hunt with on a CNI block I had a booking for.

    He rang me some time ago with his news and prognosis. Not bitter, but not helped at all by the sorry state of our health system.

    RIP Matt.
