Hello everyone. I just found this site and it looks to be a great place to discuss hunting in Africa and showing off our hunts. I couldn't have found this site at a better time. A friend and I just booked our first plains game hunt in the Eastern Cape of RSA for 2011. Needless to say I will have a lot of questions between now and then. A little about myself: I am 38 yo, ready to turn 39 in a couple months. I've been hunting since I was 13, but shooting and handloading before that. I also enjoy fishing, trapping, and camping. I've been primarily a big game hunter, having hunted in my home state of Pennsylvania, along with New York, New Jersey, Montana, Maine, New Hampshire, West Virginia, Nova Scotia, and Quebec. I am looking forward to spending time here and learning as much as I can about what is in store for me on my trip to RSA. Thanks.

Craig

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
