    Lots of smiles in that photo. :D

     

    Thanks Cowtown Scout, there's so much enthusiasm. The rain was torrential or there would have been more at the match.

  3. Well today was the clubs first Single Action shoot for the Woodstock Regulators and what fun it was! It was an absolute mud fest but no one cared a hoot :)  It will definitely be better when the road base is spread over the Single Action Range  as soon as when the contractor can get a dry period in, we have had rain for weeks. On Thursday a posse from Nowra Club consisting of Squints, Old Gringo and Chato who are the Southern Regulators travelled down to the club to have a look at our Single Action Range after they invited us to shoot with them two weeks ago and they were suitably impressed with the new range it was terrific showing them around and then having morning tea and shooting the breeze for nearly 3 hours. They were planning on coming today with a truckload of excess gear that they have that they can lend to the us, but the overnight rain was just too much for them to go and collect it and drive down.

    Two lots of parents will have a lot of washing today as we had three kids wallowing and having a ball in the mud whilst their parents were shooting.

     

    Here’s a photo from today and you can see what we’re standing in !!!

     

    There were supposed to be a lot more folks, but we've had over 7 inches of rain dumped on us in 36 hours!

  5. Bruce has become mates with a Japanese student that rents the flat next door.
    He goes to visit him in hospital after the poor guy has had a traffic accident. When he enters the room he is a bit shocked by all the bandages, equipment and hoses that surrounds the poor Jap who can't even move in the midst of all this. Bruce just stands there silently watching his neighbour when suddenly the guy's eyes open wide, look at him and he shouts ' SAKARO AOTA NAKAMY ANYOBA, SUSHI MASHUTA !!!!!! Then some convulsions follow and he dies. Bruce goes home in shock and the last words of his beloved neighbour are etched in his mind.
    When he attends the funeral the next week he approaches the mother of his dead friend and neigbour and after comforting her with her loss he says; his last words in hospital to me were "sakaro aota nakamy anyoba sushi mashute" , I would like to know what he told me, can you tell me what that means?
    The mother looked at him in shock and fainted, and another Japanese relative stepped in and said;
    he told you: YOU'RE STANDING ON MY OXYGEN HOSE YOU *%#$%@ IDIOT!!!!

    The ones that I build all break down into 3 easy to handle and load pieces. There are lady shooters than use my carts and load and load them with no issues and almost all of them built from hardwood.

     

    Do you share or sell your plans by chance Yul Lose ?

    You may have heard on the news about a Southern California man who was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and allegedly had 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also featured a secret escape tunnel.
    By Southern California standards, someone owning 100,000 rounds is considered "mentally unstable.
    BUT…
    In Michigan, he'd be called "the last white guy still living in Detroit."
    In Arizona, he'd be called "an avid gun collector.
    In Arkansas, he'd be called "a novice gun collector."
    In Utah, he'd be called "moderately well prepared," but they'd probably reserve judgment until they made sure that he had a corresponding quantity of stored food.
    In Kansas, he'd be "A guy down the road you would want to have for a friend."
    In Montana, he'd be called "The neighborhood 'Go-To' guy."
    In Idaho, he'd be called "a likely gubernatorial candidate."
    In Georgia, he'd be called "an eligible bachelor."
    In North Carolina, Virginia, WV, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina and Minnesota he would be called "a deer hunting buddy."
    AND,OF COURSE,
    In Texas, he'd just be "a guy who's a little short on Ammo."

  8. Anyone DIY built a 'lightweight' timber gun cart?

     

    Looking through the pics when Googling 'Cowboy gun carts' there's some absolute amazing and stunningly ingenious DIY built ones but to me they all look like hernia inducing to get in and out of a car. They'd be fantastic for the user once out of the car though. I don't know how some of the fella's with those whopping big hardwood built carts that have every conceivable addition built into them get 'em off and on unless you have a mini hiab crane on your truck :) 

  9. This was an AirTractor that was scooping water up to fight a bushfire, unbelievable skill the pilot has to come down and scoop water whilst flying, the sound of him gunning the engine to get altitude when he'd filled up was pretty cool. He and a few other AirTractors probably did around 200 pick ups in front of my house.
