    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

    Yes and the locals were having a raging party around a fire that first night. As I recall, one young bugger tried to suggest he would guide us for some koha but we had well and truly gapped it before he would have woken up.

    Yes bloody sad to se another legend go. RIP My friend Will really miss you . Was lucky enough to live down the road from Graeme when I was a kid had plenty of good times from trapping peacocks on our farm to guided peacock shoots duck shooting . Graeme even managed to convince my mum that my dad would love the free 12 month old English pointer dog that came with the browning A5 shotgun he brought haha you needed to be their to appreciate that one dad was absolutely horrified when mum told him that it was his dog haha . Graeme thought it was the best laugh in years . Turns out Buck the English pointer once he learnt to swim after having to be chucked in the water a few times turned into the best bird dog dads ever had . Had a couple of trips to the mangaohane plateau as a late teen and in early 20s awesome trips away I’ll never forget. learnt so much from those trips . I hope who ever gets his sako vixen 223 looks after that gun and takes it hunting and continues to tip deer over with it for years to come . Miss you mate will never forget the laughs and good times we had as long as I’m alive .
    Condolences to Wife Julie and daughters Kerry and Hayley .

    One of my regrets is that Graeme only lived about ten minutes from my place on the coast, but I never met him. He sounded like a really nice guy with loads of experience.
