Hi new guy here glad I found this place.

I have had an itch for a double rifle for sometime now and in my search I found this forum.

I also would like to hunt with my double rifle when I find what I want.


I am not sure why I want to do these things I just do, I currently own a few rifles and a couple of pistols i have been thinking of selling a few to make a little more room.

I've seen the 470NE and it seems to tickle my fancy but I have no idea how it recoils I have shot 375H&H no worries and a few other things like 300RUM so I don't know.

Anyways I'm off to go read a bit more on this forum.

Thanks Dave.

It's pretty much stopped raining although it did rain the night before last but it was only a light shower.

There is still a fair bit of water laying around at the moment it should dry up in a few weeks or so.

Here's a photo I took the other day on my way home of some camels, sorry for the poor quality I took it with my phone.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?
