    Professional Hunters Double Rifles

    I see, Philip Glass, you are looking to buy a double - apparently. So, as I said in another post, please private message me and I'll put you in touch with the chap with the .470. The you can put your money where your mouth is. You will be in contact with him by today or tomorrow.

    Well Philip Glass, why would you be suspicious? Why use a word like that?

    Professional Hunters Double Rifles

    Spike, its not all that uncommon in auction sales in GB. As I say, I know a chap who put his 470 in last year and it didn't make his - pretty low -reserve and it went home with him. I am confident he will still have it if you want to message me.

    Professional Hunters Double Rifles

    Having another read through, you will pick up 470 doubles in GB for 4 - 6 thousand GB pounds. Maybe less now as they will have sat around another year never being used. One of them, as I recall, has only ever shot a zebra!

    Professional Hunters Double Rifles

    I used to wonder how these old chaps could afford such expensive doubles. Like someone above said they started, particularly in the ivory hunting days, with a rifle - of whatever make and calibre and worked up. I suspect if any of us knew that our laptop was needed to save our lives we wouldn't...

    Anybody seen these Rufiji APU Boots???

    Its a good idea to support the anti poaching unit. I think you'd be better sticking with Courtenays. I'll probably buy a pair of Rufiji's anyway. Good hunting.

    Ridiculous Bargain Elephant Hunt Zimbabwe

    Under £8,000 - that's eight thousand British pounds. Who would ever have believed a price like this was possible? What can a boy do? It is my birthday in December!

    8 X 60 Double for a plains game hunt?

    Obviously the guys you spoke to were making too much money. Amazing comments given the state of the economy and how many people actually want to hunt each year. Obviously you have moved on to sympathetic PH's. Personally I would have thought they would have welcomed anyone with something a...

    China Donates Equipment to Anti-Poaching Efforts

    There are many good things here, but - and is there always a but? - this is merely another manifestation of the creeping Chinese colonialism in Africa. Being a Brit from sunny Scotland I know that we are often criticised for our role in the world and our accumulation of colonies. Times change...

    Zimbabwe: Mugabe unhappy with white professional hunters, over 1000 ZANU-PF youths to be trained

    How many of this group might have the smallest chance of passing the Zim PH, or even guide course which I think is probably the most comprehensive - and challenging - on the planet? It costs a lot because there is a ton of training involved. Do you want to be the guy in the bush with a "PH" who...
