Someone noted I did not introduce myself in my question to another forum. I had software working against me on my initial attempts to post. Jerome sorted this and I got excited posting all over here. So I’m from Australia and I’ve always been fascinated about Dangerous game and Africa from the time I was young and had access to firearms and related literature. I was lucky enough enough to grow up in a small remote town with an interest in modern sporting rifles,shooting and generally hunting pest animals in Australia. I’ve watched some African hunting stuff and while the flora and fauna vary I see it’s somewhat similar to home. I read about firearms,improvements and accessories etc. I like the movie The Ghost and the Darkness, thenera, the scenery, the story and the dream of Africa. I think they call it a romantic notion? Any Dangerous game has some appeal to me but others the antelope species or a mate back home is keen on the deer species across our continent. Him a true hunter who hunts for the fair chase buyback also eats the spoils of his hunt. We share a common interest, he loves the hand carved Warthog on my mantle (origin unknown) and we’d both give anything to bag a Grizzly Bear and bring it home but it’s cost prohibitive. We’ve only met a few years back through work and rarely meet but being gun nuts the conversation is never boring the subject can go on into the extremities of scopes, accessories and so on.
