    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.

    Welcome to AH Dave.
    Plenty of double lovers on here that can shoot and will share it.

    There does not have to be any reason to buy one I hear.

    Camel hunting... Sounds like a


    Good shot... heard all around the world! Hilarious.
