I shoot, regularly.

Mainly target, pest control and small game, with pig hunting occassionally.
Went brumby shooting early last month. That was something else.

As for .22's, you can pick up some really good bargains, if you look hard enough.
I've bought a couple of mine through rural gun dealers. It's a bit of a mess around, but you can find the occassional, well loved and looked after rifle at an amazing price, sometimes. Lever actions, old station rifles, all immaculately oiled and polished.


On another note, I've just finished Brutal Legend on 360.
If anyone wants it, and can prove thier credibility as a metalhead, or wants to swap it for something I haven't played, I'm accepting all offers.

.22's can usually be found at http://www.usedguns.com.au, most of them are alright and you can find some bargains now and again too, and don't forget to ask for a cheaper price too because a lot of them will accept

Cheers, thanks for the detail about importing. I've only shot .22LR with a scope but I think I want it with irons actually. I've only shot .22LR and 5.56 and all with glass on them.

I'm thinking:
A .22LR with irons to practice shooting with irons and rabbits,
A pump .223 (7615) with irons or red dot and pistol/butt grip.. tempted to put a bipod on it but dunno how heavy that'll be already (As close to my service weapon as I can get without being a farmer) for target and foxes,

To come later:
a bolt .308 with glass for long range target and deer (something like a rem 700, haven't looked into this yet though)
IAC 12g leveraction shotty with a 20inch barrel and the 7shell tube extension for luls
Double barrel, either U/O or SxS not fussy. SxS is more sexy but can't find any online with ejectors... all the SxS seem to have extractors instead, why's that?

Ahh interesting about the cowboy action comps... makes sense I guess

Basically with a shopping list as long as mine (it's a lot longer in the long term) I need to find a better job... working for 16bucks an hour doing retail just isn't doing it for me :cry:

Friday is the last time I'm getting drunk. (That's the plan anyway)
I don't smoke.
I didn't buy my own car.
I've bought the things I need for army training that I want (like a bivvie and decent sleeping bag)

Unfortunately I still live at home but at least that's cheaper than living on my own.



Got any job ideas? I really hate retail

Dude, I can't remember which one it was, but as of next week, either Melbourne Indoor Paintball or World Series Paintball in Oakleigh are looking for people.

Might be something you'd be into?

Anyone know places that sell bulk ammo at good prices?

Hey i'm in Perth, WA here and i've been thinking about joining ZS for a while. Especially today seeing the quake in Christchurch. zomg.

As far as survivalist things i've done, i have attempted to grow food down the side of my house. I'm glad i don't have to depend on it! And i'm working towards an electric conversion of a motorcycle, too. Ideally generating my own power for it (because being late for work because of a power failure is embarrassing) but being in the suburbs i might have a bit of trouble finding a decent clean wind. Not to mention the neighbours complaining.

Anyway, hi!
