    "New" Toy - Off Chassis Restoration - 1969 Toyoda Land Cruiser

    t-rags, please add my name to the list of welcomers. With a 375 H&H already in hand you are well equipped for your first African hunt.

    CZ 458 lott

    New CZ(s) are best described as "a work in progress, or "a diamond in the rough." If it feeds reliably, use it. All of the other stuff you mentioned can only help. My 404 Jeffery wouldn't feed the second or subsequent rounds and required a Gunsmith's services.

    Monster Croc drop shot

    Where do you place a quartering away shot on a crock? Just curious. That looks like a big one, how long was it, any idea how much it weighed?

    USA: Rifle Elk Hunt With Rising Son Outfitters In Montana October 2020

    With all of the prep work and waiting over, all you have to do is take time to smell the roses. Enjoy your hunt and be sure to keep us posted. BTW welcome to retirement. Hopefully you and your reloading bench will be spending lots of quality time together;);).

    Hello from South Africa - new hunter

    Welcome to AH Craig. Are you aware that there are several AH Members living near you? You might try looking them up. No doubt they would be a good source of information for you.

    The Marauder Of Dublar Chor

    A great read Professor. Without a way to remotely turn on the flashlight, I'm always amazed at how quickly you could aim and fire your rifle.

    Hola desde Mendoza, Argentina...

    Welcome aboard Algrrobo. I speak a little Spanish and read less. I never learned to write it. I too wish that you feel at home on AH. Hunters from all over the world are the same in many ways. Do you have any photos of the hogs and or wild boar you have taken? What caliber rifle do you...

    Von Gruff knives

    All of Garry's knives are awesome, I'm having difficulties describing his latest accomplishments. They are either more awesome or awesome(r.) Garry, at any rate I hope you just keep on making them and enjoying yourself while doing so.
