Hello, all. You can call me Petey. New to AH, but have been doing a lot of searches through the forums.

Mostly, I'm a bird hunter (waterfowl and upland), and prefer side by sides. Also a wingshooting instructor through the Illinois DNR for their Youth and Women's Wingshooting Program.

I've become obsessed with going to Africa to hunt. The idea was originally planted by an ex-girlfriend. Now, I think I drive my wife crazy talking about it. Planning on a PG hunt in a few years (gotta save up the funds), but also want to return later for buffalo, and maybe other DG.

Thanks to you all for everything you share. It is quite informative.

Welcome to the dark side, you have picked a great place to start your journey to Africa. I am sure the people here will help you get to Africa on safari sooner than later.

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.
