    You can always buy some and let some of your new American friends store them for you....I'm sure you'll find no shortage of volunteers!

    @Opposite Pole It all starts when your mate, friend, buddy, PH let you shoot your first double, before the sound has died away for the second shot you are HOOKED!!!!! I would rather hunt with a double as my first choice. Will warn you I have owned 9 different double and currently have 5 (Unless @PHOENIX PHIL talks me into selling him one) ;) You will find a need to have another show up in the safe. Love the engraving and wood on your rifle. Shoot straight, shoot often, and shot allot till you are comfortable with the irons and they will become second nature. Just wait till you shoot your first buff with your own double(y)

    Congrats OP on this significant milestone in your life.
    You've obviously earned it. Enjoy.

    Without wanting to be melodramatic, I fully understand the excitement and sense of pride in wrapping your mits around your own very first double, and what an impressive double it is.

    When the moment comes, and you get to see a buff or Ele disappear from under the open sights you will swallow your ears with an enormous grin and oyu will never forget it for the rest of your life.

    We are all here for a good time not a long time.

    Live, love, hunt and enjoy.
    Go put some holes in something.

    Damn fine Krieghoff !

    For a fact, that is one beautiful rifle. I envy you. What I don't envy is the grief and anxiety attacks you are going to have prior to purchasing your next double!!

    Thats a great looking rifle and excellent choice of Calibres!

    I also have a Krieghoff, albeit MUCH less fancy than yours in the same calibres! Owning a 375H&H also i wasnt sure about the 9.3x74R, but I have fallen in love with it.
    The .470NE is a dream to shoot and as you say way more manageable than initially expected!

    I also got a set of 20G shotgun barrels (just an idea............... lol) and not have a three barrel set for any hunt!

    I know you will have many great hunts with your rifle/s! enjoy and congrats!
