    Default Hi from Aussieland

    Hi new guy here glad I found this place.

    I have had an itch for a double rifle for sometime now and in my search I found this forum.

    I also would like to hunt with my double rifle when I find what I want.


    I am not sure why I want to do these things I just do, I currently own a few rifles and a couple of pistols i have been thinking of selling a few to make a little more room.

    I've seen the 470NE and it seems to tickle my fancy but I have no idea how it recoils I have shot 375H&H no worries and a few other things like 300RUM so I don't know.

    Anyways I'm off to go read a bit more on this forum.

    Thanks Dave.

    It's pretty much stopped raining although it did rain the night before last but it was only a light shower.

    There is still a fair bit of water laying around at the moment it should dry up in a few weeks or so.

    Here's a photo I took the other day on my way home of some camels, sorry for the poor quality I took it with my phone.
