    Default Green but keen

    Greetings all, so having been put off acquiring a firearm of any kind due to the daunting licensing process I started the pass time of marksmanship in airgunning with the discipline known as "Hunter Field Target" and then later, the more technically demanding and expensive "Field Target". The equipment was every bit as expensive as traditional firearms but I could have the gun today if I so chose and at a few cents per shot it was to keep me busy for nearly a decade. I reluctantly packed it eventually having become a dad and taking a massive hit with the economic downturn. There could be no more "weekends at the range" and 100km round trips for mandatory league shoots and the like. Fast forward a few years and crime starts freaking me out, the last straw being murders line of sight from my house. I then proceeded to get onto Facebook a year or so ago with a view to getting some information about the licensing process that had kept me at bay into my then 41st year. Clearly, the BS to acquire an s13 carry gun had become a necessary evil if I hoped to defend my loved ones should the unthinkable occur. Let's just say, my ignorance got me lambasted but it was all in good fun and I met some top drawer folk and so I find myself here eager to continue my learning not just in respect of equipment but sport shooting and courses so I can actually use my pistol (almost there) effectively. I look forward to joining some of you at the range in the near future and picking your brains for pearls of wisdom and learning from everyone right here too.

    Andrew
