    I have posted a few times on here and done a bunch of reasearch but don’t believe I have officially introduced myself!

    The name is Robert... I grew up on a farm in Maine where hunting and the outdoors was a way of life! Over the years, I have drifted away from traditional deer hunting and such, but remain intrigued by the allure of big game in Africa.

    Some day I will pull myself away from my life as a race car driver and nuclear engineer and make the trip! Luckily owning my own racing team has helped me connect to some great companies in the firearms world... DRD Tactical and TheGunDock are two of my current partners.

    My current “Safari” rifle is a CZ550 in 500 Jeffery. I continued with the CZ as I had great luck with my 416 Rigby.

    Anyway, that’s about it! I look forward to continuing to learn from this great board!

    Here's to an official welcome from another Tennessean! Look forward to hearing about that 500 and your cars.

    I've lost count but I think there are over 6 plus members from TN that I can recall. Would be nice to have a get together some time if it worked out with all.

    Welcome aboard Robert. AH might be classified as a carrier of a mysterious disease. Once bitten by the bug there is only one cure. You will find no end of encouragement and or suggestions as to how and where to put your safari rifles to good use.
