    Hiya Guys/Girls

    I am relatively new to the shooting game only just got my license and just bought my first gun Howa .223 1500 Varmint stainless barrel laminated stock, as i have no experience no skills and basically no idea what was what i just went with what i liked the look of. :D

    So Ive been trolling around googling things to try and bring my knowledge up, and i came across this site, and must say its one of the best sites i have encountered so far so good in fact that i decided to join.. i do have a couple of questions for the re loaders so i will be off to the the reloading section after this intro..

    Really enjoying the sport so far done a little hunting but mostly just shooting paper atm

    Anyway this is just a quick howdy all, i am just your regular aussie bloke into most of the regular things Bikes, cars, music, pretty women and a couple of quiet beers..

    Cheers all and have a nice day..

    Hey Mate

    Where are you in AU? I travel to Perth, Adelaide and Sydney on occasion. Most Aussies I know are deadly afraid of Yankee-style guns.:D

    G'day from Perth how are you fellas? I just put up a new thread in the Australia forum about helping Australian firearm owners, so any advice with our problem would be great. I'm the proud owner of a ruger 22-250, 22 magnum marlin and a lever action 12 gauge shotgun IAC and I'm looking at getting a 300 win mag. Iv been hunting since I was knee high to a grass hopper and love it.
