A 150kg (or more) gun safe doesn’t have to be fixed to anything in nsw. Dunno about Victoria but worth looking into?

Under 150kg unloaded has to be fixed to the premises.

We get along really well with our land lords so i dont see it as a big issue, i reckon they will say yes, but its the wife that ill have to convince.
I do have other options like a couple of mates have firearms, nothing about a cat B so thats alright.

Give it time i say.

Hi diddily ho everyone.
Just got my probationary pistol licence (after 4. BLOODY. MONTHS!), already eagerly counting down the months till I can apply for my permits to acquire. Anyone recommend some good air pistols? Have a Unique DES 69 ready for me to try thanks to a family-friend.

Greetings Earthlings.
Thought i would do the ol intro thingy.
Shot alot in my younger years, till i found beer and woman, but now it's just the beer. So i need something to occupy my mind as well as my OCD nature.
Wife suggested i get back into killing paper.
I have a Howa .223 SS Varmint Short Action 1-9 twist matched to a GRS laminate stock with a 6x24x50 Bushy mounted on top.
Also a Ruger American Target .22 with a Bushy AR223 to look through, after 2 warranty problems with feeding issues it shoots amazingly.
I have started loading my own .223 and getting some success, I managed to get hold of a 2nd hand set up with single Hornady press, RCBS dies, extractor, powder, projectiles, primers, powder thrower and about 5000 cases.
Because i have a "must win" mentality i have been playing with pill weights and styles, powders, seating depths, OAL, COL & COAL, power weights and generally sending Dr Google into melt down.
Anywho glad to be in an Australian Shooting Forum, i like it so far.

Hi All.
Just joined thought I'd drop in and say hi.
Did a bit as a kid and now years later keen to get back into it.
How times have changed compared to hunting on the farm as a kid.
22LR L101 on order. Will look at other options when I work out what pest control I end up chasing.
Plan of doing a bit of the range/plinking in short term and looking forward to getting into hunting again down the track.
Looks like a great forum.
Cheers
Chipsy

Hi everyone,

I have had my application in for just over 8 weeks and have 2 guns waiting patiently for me at the shop. I'll be doing a mixture of hunting and target shooting
