    Greetings!

    Hi, I’m Troy. Live in Australia. Don’t get to do much hunting, never been to Africa (maybe one day...?).

    Love old guns, weird and wacky is best! Unfortunately financially can’t follow this passion but reading is free, right? :)

    Anyways,
    Hi!

    Cheers,
    Troy.

    I didn't make it to Africa until I was 69 years old. I should have started saving for it while I was younger, but life got in the way. Don’t let your dreams get put off until your health cannot do them.

    Welcome aboard Certus. AH is filled with subject matter experts in all fields related to hunting, shooting etc.
    We are also a bunch of "Dreamers." By that I mean we are always dreaming about and or planning our next trip afield. For some it is Africa for others their own country. Knowledge and opinions are shared freely. I hope you enjoy and "profit" from the time you spend with us.

    Welcome, like @Shootist43 says we are all dreamers and if it wasn't for those dreams we may never had made it to Africa. Dream on!
