Gold Coast, OZ

Hi All, I am from the Gold Coast Australia, I have enjoyed having a good read over the forum after a mate (JAWZ) pointed me in this direction. Due to ridiculous weapon licensing laws and being domiciled in another country I had to dispose of my firearms about 10 years ago. I have just started to get back into it with the process of picking calís, actions, scopes etc. Most hunting will be shorter range, but I am interested in getting both the equipment and discipline required for the longer range shots. I still have a lot of reading to doÖ.

Thanks ss7mm, I have most of the cals sorted with rifles on the way, PTA'd (Permit To Acquire) or deposit's placed to hold
22LR - CZ 452 LH
223 Rem 700 LH
270Win Rem 700 LH
308 Rem 7600

The hard part has been picking suitable cals and rifles in Left Hand! After I sort out scopes for the above lot it will be down to cal and rifle selection for the long range bad boy, but to make life easier this / these will be RH

Just buy that barret in the 338 lapua and be done with it, the rest is neither here nor there.

Was wondering when you were going to stick your head up.

That's the current line of thinking if I can get a hold of one, it may be a 12 month wait, the story goes that Cleaver got 10 in and sold 12!. Mind you I do like those Mak Tube kits they have done in 300 RUM.
It will be a while yet for either, I have to sneak through / slowly introduce the above to the chief. Its amazing what deals you can get when you are a lefty, the shops just give them away
