  1. Hey Trav, im Jamie im south of adelaide too. Im new ish to the sport too ive been shooting for over a year but only had my rifles for a month and a bit because as u know it takes forever to get ur license. I ended up getting a cz452 22 special and am pretty happy with it but because ive got evap air con I will only buy stainless rifles now due to rust I have found that I need to very heavily oil everything. Thankfully i only got a bit of starting rust on the safety catch and sling lugs. Thats my only issue but nothing against the rifle it shoots fantastically with the right ammo. I have a nikon 3.5 to 9 on my cz but ive got one of the Bushnell XLT 4-12 on my 223 both are fantastic the nikon is a bit sharper but ude expect that from a $400 scope compared to a $250 Bushnell but u will be more than happy with the Bushnell XLT. As far as clubs to shoot 22s ur best bet would probably be the Wingfield range where u did ur firearms course if uve done it yet. As there is some fantastic old timers there with a wealth of knowledge and are willing to help u out which is always helpful. U can go a few times as a visitor to see if u like the place with either their club guns or u can take ur own just make sure u check their website calendar to make sure theres no competition on the day (usually Sunday i went) as different days different clubs use the range.

  2. Wow they do look pretty great and would most definitely be a fantastic backup because of the replacement blades. The Lansky system does look pretty ideal as it would give u a constant edge thats always the same. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  3. Just after options on a general hunting knife, I will mainly be using it on foxes and rabbits for now so only looking at something budget to get started. Also I know theres pros and cons of fixed vs folding blades what are your opinions/experiences. Plus what kind of sharpeners do you recommend stick vs stone? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  4. It sure is a long process isnt it. I just got mine a couple of weeks ago and went and put in 2 pta's straight away after paying for my license. What are u planning on getting. Im getting a cz452 22 and a tikka t3 ss lite 223. Definitely blew out the budget with the tikka as i went in just to get the cz just couldn't help myself. Next will probably be a 308 or something like that but will probably be in a while now. The worst part is the minimum month wait for first gun purchase. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
