  3. Must be a lot of bodies over that cliff now.......
  4. Squints is going to be bringing his Winnebago (he showed us through it, he's got that set up nicely!) down to our range very soon
  5. Yes Wallaby .....NRC, was a member there for 10 years in the '90's but let my membership lapse when we got smallbore on our range licence.
  6. I wish you lived closer....I could happily feed your compulsion
  7. To be honest ....... this place and interacting with all you cowboys and cowgirls has become a daily (and very enjoyable) compulsion.
  8. Two cups of black tea first ..... then I start on coffee for the rest of the day.
  9. As Pat said to me in a PM......"Don't worry about nerves" and he was right
  10. I'm Santa on the left and Doc Mustang on the right (he's a veterinarian and good friend and good for quick patch ups ) and my wonderful wife Jenorado in the second photo.
  11. You were 100% right Pat, the nerves just dissipated
  12. Shot my first away CAS match yesterday (Sunday) at a club a little North of us. Pretty much my first real CAS match as we're still getting our range and targets etc up to scratch. Learnt sooooo much, scoring, range procedure, spotting, the loading table, the unloading table..... it was such a great day. A bunch of us from our club went up and we could not have met a friendlier bunch of cowboys! The Southern Regulators are a super helpful and just down right obliging hospitable bunch. We shot four stages and my last one was clean, I was happy with that! T'was a big day, I slept well last night and a nice sleep in this Monday morning! Looking forward to having the Southern Regulators on our range soon.
  13. Handle every stressful situation like a dog.If you can't eat it or hump it, piss on it and walk away.
  14. Here you are my chili lovin' pards.....just in case
  15. In Australia any hardware store, big department store ( I bought my first rifle at KMart), sports store, tackle store, gun show, ads in the Trading Post newspaper etc etc you could have bought a shottie. How things have changed here.

  17. Thanks one and all for posting up your photos, appreciated
  18. My wife and I watched The Cowboys last night, its been a long time since I'd seen it and my wife hadn't seen it before. What a great movie, thoroughly enjoyable.
  19. A Queensland farmer got in his 4x and drove to a neighbouring farm and knocked at the farmhouse door.A young boy, about nine, opened the door.'Is your Dad home'? the farmer asked.'Sorry mate, he isn't' the boy replied. 'He went into town.''Well,' said the farmer, 'Is your mum here'?'No, sir, she's not here either. She went into town with Dad.''How about your brother, Robbo? Is he here'?'He went with Mum and Dad.'The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.'Is there anything I can do for ya'? the boy asked politely. 'I know where all the tools are if you want to borrow one. Or maybe, I could take a message for Dad.''Well,' said the farmer uncomfortably, 'I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Robbo getting my daughter pregnant.'The boy considered for a moment.'You would have to talk to Dad about that,' he finally conceded. If it helps you any, I know that Dad charges $200 for the bull and $150 for the pig, but I really don't know how much he gets for Robbo.'
  20. @Billy Boots, # 20282 LTG-Regulator Billy, my apologies I've always known them as arbors, but they are 'spindles'.

  21. Jeez that's scary. On my Xl650 (touch wood) its never happened but I have had primers crushed and mangled in the disk bad enough that the yellow priming mixture (Federal SPP) has been smeared everywhere. So I don't know how close that was to igniting a rocket. Please please please......always always safety glasses!!!
  22. Only if you've become mentally incapacitated through the aging process and are literally dangerous to others handling firearms, as a Club Secretary I have had to give some of our older gents a tap on the shoulder and have that talk with them, its terribly terribly hard and a very difficult thing to do. Physically incapacitated??? NO WAY.....keep going on. Old and slow doesn't mean (and shouldn't mean) culled from the herd. What does that say for people with disabilities, wheelchair bound, amputees etc etc .....CAS isn't for you? That's terrible.
