    Hi all, I am a new safari rifle owner. A dream come true. I now have a Greener .577 express. No plans for an Africa hunt. Im a collector really. Im from Florida. I am a commercial pilot after a career in the USMC as a harrier pilot including a 3 year exchange tour with Sea Harriers in the Royal Navy...Thanks for the fine welcome.

    WOW! A Harrier pilot! I thought they all crashed! Just kidding! But the concepts did have a difficult time initially, so I read.
    Thomas, thanks for your service and I hope you have a long one in the commercial field.
    I’m telling you honestly, you really really should go to Africa!

    Welcome aboard Thomas. You certainly went "all in" on your first safari rifle. Have you shot it yet, or don't you intend to shoot it? If flying "jump jets" didn't light your fire perhaps a charging DG animal might. Perhaps you should consider taking your new found toy to a place where she belongs.
