@Dr Ray I thought Oz was on COVID lock down. What were you thinking by venturing out to an ATM???

Only on southern places

I’m a mighty long way from that
Note that Australia (mainland) is bigger than the contingent states in USA
No lockdown here

Violent crime isn't an issue where Dr Ray lives either? Yet? We don't have much here either. Except for the occasional carjacking, convenience store robbery, drive by gang related shooting, etc. Here, as in many other cities across the country, it's not so much you are the target as much as your caught in the situation at hand. In my hand, will be something of the perpetrator(s) nightmare, if I or another innocent bystander becomes the focus of their violence.
It’s not impossible but extremely unlikely for that to happen here. The largest town in my county has 4300 people. Lots of people have 300 win mags and 30-30s behind their seat, (myself including, also a Sig 226) In my life, 24 years, we had one prison escape, and one hold up at a gas station, that I can remember.
If I live somewhere else, you bet your boots I would carry.

Well, that's pretty pitiful statistics? The criminals need to step up their game! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Dr Ray and .455 Webley Greene,

Today at around 8 I went to the Cairns central shopping Center to attack the ATM to extract. $$. I was surprised that I was the only one around - so I thought.
Just as I transacted and was taking my card out, I hear a hell of a argument.
I didn’t take much notice as the racket suddenly stopped.
I left the building and found out shortly thereafter there was a murder.
One man slashed the throat of the other.

I didn’t know for about it for a little time but yikes this event left me unsettled.
I was to be on a flight 14 December 2019. It turned out to be a fatal flight. Good thing I didn’t end up going on it.
Obviously I’m having an eventful life!

One of my friends is currently in Cairns on his honeymoon and happened to be at Woollies garbing some groceries when this event unfolded. He rang me to talk things through. He could not believe it happened just near him. So sad for you and the community to have to go through.

No Batons either.

I can't speak for Queensland but NSW deem Baton, Pepper Spray, Handcuffs, Nunchucks, knife Cane, throwing stars etc all Deemed as Prohibited Weapons. Basically under the same regs as a Silencer/Suppressors etc.

kind of ironic, a blade master cannot carry a blade in public, ironic, not funny
WE can in New Zealand. Dr Ray is in Australia. I have carried a pocket knife all my life and while I have my custom going out knife, my every day carry is one I made for myself a long time ago. There are restrictions on blade length and auto openers etc.
This was made by a talented folder maker for a retirement gift to myself with giraffe bone, damasteel, jeweled titanium liners on the CPM154 blade

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
