  • Grateful greetings

    Like everyone else, I was sad when the other board closed. As a shooting/hunting ignoramus, I learned so much from its contributors. It was always satisfying to google for the answer to my problem du jour and find that the best answers came from our very own Australian forum. So I'm very grateful to all those who have set up and are moderating this new board.
    At the risk of breaching the no religion rule, I'm a Uniting Church minister and have several shooters in my congregations. I have a Norinco JW15 .22LR (much under-rated rifle), a Browning BL22 .22LR lever, a Winchester 9422 .22WMR and a couple of yer actual JM Marlin 30-30 levers. QLD WLB have just sent a PTA for a JM 1895 45-70 Guide Gun, I hope to pick that up when I have a spare moment next week. So reloading is the next thing which I have to learn.

              My oldest son was doing Pistol shooting for a while. He had Norinco '1911' in .45 cal. He got the stick on the range about that Chinese junk.-- Really the bore on that pistol was like a mirror and it would group as good as any other pistol. I had a win wmrf the 9422. a beautiful rifle very accurate and like a dill I sold it.
              Welcome aboard your ministership. I suggest you get hold of a couple of reloading manuals. I rec. the latest by Nick Harvey which is a must as it deals with the Australian scene. and I rec also the Nosler manual as it is so very well written and give them both a good read before you buy any other gear.

              Mate Welcome!
              And it's fantastic to have you 'coming out' as a shooter
