Hi Gang,

Just about had all I can take of shooting at the range. Looking to do some hunting and learn some new things about shooting and this looks like a good place to talk shooting :D

Looking forward to shooting the breeze (hilarious!) with everyone.

Hi fellow shooter :)

I'm in the same boat as you, bit bored of punching holes in paper.

Looking for new ideas here too.

Gidday,

I am from TAS, I collect a few firearms, shoot bits of paper and metal with rifles and pistols, love military firearms and am constantly reminded I have too many firearms.

This place seems nice and sensible, rein me in if I go too far.

Yep, I personally think it is more a case of not a big enough gun safe than too many firearms.

Hello from a proud new Browning owner

Post by Deco » 05 Oct 2013, 11:55 am

Hi everyone,

Just a quick g'day so introduce myself.

I'm new to shooting in general and to the forum, and as of this week am the proud new owner of a Browning X-Bolt Hunter in .270

Looking forward to putting it to good use and chatting with you all.

New forumer

Post by disturbance » 09 Oct 2013, 9:42 am

Hey all,

Have moved here since the closing of another shooting forum. Look forward to chatting you all!

I love cars, drumming, zombie culture, loud music and other things but as far as shooting goes, I'm mainly a paper puncher with a .22LR and .223.

Want to get out hunting soon but I am extremely time poor!

Might see you around Belmont if you are in the area.

Cheers,
Tucker (Disturbance)
