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!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
