    i've talked to a guide/keeper thats had people turn up to red deer hunts in scotland with full driven shoot regalia, including the $300 ties, tailored jackets, and Wellies.
    Coming from Tasmania, i've never really considered hunting to be a fashion parade, but that seems to be what it is with a certain set and their "best" english guns and rifles.

    Continental Europe on the other hand seems to have almost perfect balance of quality, price, and userbility. must just be a pommy thing?

    (i do wear a Purdey and Sons shirt to work tho, just not in the bush)

I totally concur, it's the memories that count, not the equipment - or even the trophy. Some of my best hunts were for meat and enjoyment, and no amount of money could buy the fun I had. As I told James Grage, I rather buy good second hand, because the tool does not matter so much in itself. As you said, we can't take it with us, but I hope to retain the memories of every hunt I ever did when I shuffle this mortal coil...
    I'm very sorry to tell you that even if you pack very carefully, you can't take memories with you either!

    The fact is there are memories and then there are differewnt memories! In some cases the rifle you always wanted is a memory that you can enjoy before you take thast long trip to the happy hunting ground, and the harder that rifle was to obtain the fonder the memory, then add to the dificulty in obtaining the rifle a once in a life time safari, and that memory will still be with you when you lay your head down for the last time, Nothing matters after that point so live it while you can, because the money is what you can't take with you
    and once you close those baby blues, Some one else can have the physical memory you bought with that money!
