Welcome aboard Darren. Nice to have input from someone that has lived on a game farm.

Most weekends back to the farm must mean you get to hunt a bit.

Look forward to your input.

Thanks for all the great welcome guys. To answer Brickburn and Phoenix questions, I grew up on a game farm in an area just past Zeerust towards Madikwe about 60km from the Kopfontein border post into Botswana.

I don't hunt every weekend if I get a chance to go back to the farm as I try to only hunt as and when my biltong and meat supply is running low and to me I don't see shooting every animal I see ethical just because I can, but if something I see appeals to me then I may pull out the rifle and have a bit of a hunt.

I look forward to chatting to you guys, and is any of you are in RSA give me a shout, it would be great to go to the range and let off a few rounds and have a braai and to guns!

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
