    Hello from South Carolina.

    Planning to visit Africa within the next three years. This site has lots of good information and surely will prove to be indispensable in planning.

    Thank you all for the wealth of knowledge and I hope to be able to contribute.

    Welcome to AH Standard Velocity! Nice to have you on the posting side. You may find yourself in Africa sooner than later if you hang here too much... :)

    Welcome aboard Standard Velocity. Please tell us a little more about yourself as it relates to hunting. Things like what have you hunted previously, what kind and caliber rifles do you own, do you reload. What species are you planning to hunt?

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    I’ve been hunting the South East for thirty years and want to branch out. Elk in the West and moose in Canada are both kind of expensive. Looks like the entry price for Africa isn’t all that much more (though I feel it can get real pricey real quick).

    I’ve a small problem with buying guns but never selling any. Some of them happen to be more Africa-appropriate than whitetail woods-appropriate.

    Aspirational gun purchases aside Africa sounds like an experience. We’d like to see the things you can only see there. When we do finally pull the trigger we’ll want to see as much as possible, eat all the food and fill tags as the final (yet not ultimate) goal.

    Looking forward to learning enough here to avoid being eaten by a lion.
