    I found this site whilst tracking down some of Don Heath's writing. I am (for boring reasons) more of a shooter than a hunter but I do take the occasional walk with a rifle and have learnt what my strengths and weaknesses are when shooting it.

    I started shooting in 1984 (SLR L1A1) with the govt paying for the ammo then joined a smallbore club where a WWII Bren gunner, who started the club, began my real marksmanship training. I was a TF Royal New Zealand Engineer for 12 years, joined a couple of other shooting clubs and stayed with one, where I ended up running that club's rifle range complex, annual prize shoot, etc. for just over 14 years.

    I joined the NZ Mountain Safety Council and was a Firearm Safety instructor for just over 16 years, stepping down to Advisor level in early 2012.

    I have seen and done a few silly things with firearms over the years, investigated a few apparently nonsensical stories about firearms and hopefully learnt something over 30 years of playing with bangsticks.


    A good shot at close range beats a 'hit' at a longer range.
