    This was held at my club in New Zealand. Most shooters use high powered 22 with a couple of us shooting at 12fpe.

    I spoke to a guy that do live there, only this morning and he proved to us that it is actually more expensive to live in NZ than in SA, in spite of the benifits of LESS crime etc,. etc. Might not be a bad idea to spend some extra for the peace of mind adall te other benefits that comes with it.

    Looks nice over there. Plenty normal airguns on the shoot as far as I can see. Very few hi-tech stuff.

    Guido, I have a friend who emigrated to New Zealand about a year ago. After six months he returned because of the bad weather - he could not skydive, scuba dive or cycle during that period as a result of poor weather.

    The guy that won is ex SA. There are 5 of us at our club.
    My steyr is the one with the big Nikko and wheel. My wife was shooting with a FX Typhoon with big Leapers. My brother was shooting with a FX Typhoon with green stained Ply stock. I'm wearing a red Nikko cap.
    The cost of living isn't that bad. I have more here than I could ever imagine back in SA. 2 cars, 2 boats, plenty guns, 48" TV with full surround sound etc. All on a lawnmower mechanics salary.

    Looks as if those Gamo targets are not going to last long.

    Also looks as if some targets are quite close.

    As long as you enjoy it.I know I am an FT Addict

    Allan, some of those targets are 10 years old. It doesn't help being bashed around by 30+ Fpe. They all get tested before a competition and repairs are carried out accordingly. The closest target was exactly 10m.

    JTK, It all depends on your qualifications and the demand for your line of work. But it is a hell of a lot easier than getting into Aussie. Also our airgun laws are very good. We are allowed to own any form and power without a licence, unless you are under 18. We can also hunt with ease as long as it is not a protected species.
