i was thinking more of givimg blood at the blood bank. it would be done under a formal heading something like "nraa life saving blood" agreed to by nraa and the blood people. the nraa would encourage its members to give blood, and receive something like a plaque of gratitude each year. bl...
i was just talking bullets, not ammo? There should be no problem if going into checked in luggage,I have taken projectiles to USA and NZ without trouble,to be sure contact the airline prior to travel so that you know all is well.You have to understand that airline staff may not be as understanding ...

My wife is currently shooting the same action and is getting very similar group sizes and vert. We are getting as much trigger time as possible but there is a lot to take in when you start. I have also been shooting FTR which I prefer but we like the 6BR for it mild manners. I haven't come across t...
Was an interesting shoot, I really enjoyed it. It was little hot and dusty but good honest fun and great company. Might take the monday off next time. A credit to the members at Ungarie range for keeping the range going all the years. The food was very taste and well prepared. Was a highlight to be...
