Good news story

Post by Oldbloke » 24 May 2024, 5:43 pm

Well, it's mostly bad news we hear about. You know, politicians hammering us, restricting hunting, adding silly restrictions, more costs and blaming LAFOs for criminal activities. It seems never ending.

Here is a good news story. Perhaps there are a few more out there?

Why hasn't SSAA been doing this for decades? All clubs should have a permanent invitation open to anybody that wants to educate themselves about firearms and shooting, but especially politicians.

BR, I'll let you in on a secret.

"They are working behind the scenes." :D

Umm actually TBH I think they have on the add rare occasion.

It does my head in. They are I think the largest association we have. But since Ted Drane (now deceased) retired they have failed to grab the button and run. I find it incredibly frustrating.
