    Oh and I just found out that suppressors here are seen by the law as just accessories. So woo hoo
    I've had limited experience with the Lancer Advanced Warfighter mags, never had any problems with them.

      Great... cause I just bought 4 and the option of buying 5 more. The metal feed lips just makes sense. Also Finally got into the new government licensing program... Murikans would freak. City Courts clearance, National Bureau of Investigation clearance, National Police Clearance, Birth Certificate, Certificate of employment or source of income, proof of residence, Income Tax return. Then police administered drug test, Police Administered Neuro Psychiatric evaluation, gun training seminar... License to Own a Firearm will be released next week.

      Then I can renew my gun licenses. I went with Category 3 so up to 10 firearms. Which is around $75 USD. (renewable every 4 years)

          I agree, we need to talk to the ATF.

            • Got to fire shotguns for the first time in my life on Saturday. Some mates wanted to get some practice in before the start of duck-hunting season next month. So we grabbed a spring loaded clay flinger and a big crate of clays and went to the family farm of one of them.

              Tried one mates Benelli Supernova pump action, but it didn't seem to work that well for me. The butt stock was too low for getting a proper cheek weld to it. They fired 10 clays and I missed every single one of them. Then tried another mates Winchester under and over which felt A LOT more natural to shoot. Got four out of 10 with that one and was a lot happier about it in general.

              Don't think I'll be buying a shotgun anytime soon mind you, but it was fun.

              Afterwards ran about 100 rounds through the .22 and 50 or so through the .223 then ran out of time to test the .308. All in all, a successful and fun day.

                I have found exactly that, my mates U/O i can hit stuff all day, my guns not.

                I pretty much only have my shotgun for pigs and scrub work. They are a handy tool but rather blunt.

                  Agreed! I took my Adler out to the range a while back, and a mate took his U/O out- cant recall the brand ATM. the U/O was alot smoother to shoot and handy to have another shot ready to go just incase you missed the first time. Where as the lever action on my adler hasn't loosened up enough for me to be able to reliably cycle the action at the shoulder.

                  However the red-dot on the adler makes it easy to shoot, put the red dot on the clay, pull the tit and the clay explodes (i was quite surprised how no adjusting/zero'ing was needed).

                  IMHO much more exciting than the constraints of the range with the shoot/no shoot period- no prone shooting etc etc.

                    Vast majority of my shotgun experience is with our issue M3's, not bad set ups being both pump and semi for various munition types. Even with the short 350mm barrel they'll consistently put rifled slugs on target at 100m. With nearly all my firearms experience coming from time in service, I still find it a little awkward to get comfortable with standard hunting/conventional style stocks over free standing pistol gripped rifles.

                      You got lucky then. How is the red dot on ground targets? I'm going to the farm over easter, my brothers kids are not allowed around guns, so we will ostracise them and take every other person up creek to shoot targets. If they want to go bush and be city kids, so be it.

                      Last time i went out i was full choke on clays, meant i was chronically under and over leading. On the plus side made me shoot better, once i worked that out.

                        The red-dot was more a 'that looks sweet' kind of purchase than for any real reason. but once you get your eye relief sorted its easy to shoot both eyes open and personlly i like having a dot rather than a blade style sight to 'find' the clay. could just be a work-ism though.

                        Hahaha those kids sound like my missus, a full blown city chick. thinks weapons are magical death sticks that could put themselves together and just shoot someone...... I got on that real quick. Doing a couple of general safety lessons and should be right for the range in a bit.... but holy sh*t the amount of crap people believe just due to the media is crazy...

                        • One of the guys at the club I go to has a Martini Henry, he's offered me a little play with it if I give him a hand making ammo. Sounds good to me.

                            I've still yet to get round to taking a decent picture of my Long Lever Mk IV...

                            • Oh man, I'm pretty pumped for next week; my co-worker and I are trying to get Friday afternoon off to do a troop cohesion event...

                              Which will be the lot of us thing to the range and playing with our personal toys. Our boss even bought his first pistol in preparation!

                              And here's the obligatory gun porn:

                                Here's my attempt to copy your gun porn image.
