    :( Not sure my usual tight arse tendencies could handle this.

    I'm more of a "Is the Range fees half price on Sundays" type of shooter. ;)

    Marky-
    The rifle is an HHE Millennium action (built by John and his deceased clubmate Tony Halberg) in a Canadian Robertson H&H stock (designed in fact by Tony and John). Barrel is prob a Maddco and it wears an old original Tasco 16X now known as the Super Sniper. The rifle was owned by Maurie Gordon who won the Ballinger Belt three times and he wasn't known for having rubbish gear

    Zimmer-

    Kurt's da man on the Sportsground site, and yes, he seems to have updated everything.

    John did get to shoot as you've no doubt seen and very pleasing to see his eyesight is back to more than useable !

    Say "hi" to Rob, good to see him back in action. He used to shoot at Petone and we shot at Hamilton a couple years ago.

    The 300y mound now has artificial grass! So nice to shoot off!

    Does anyone know the deal with the range out behind Roys Hill? There is a new range created accessed via the Higgins quarry before the Constellation winery. I've not been but a few mates have. Under lock and key. The comment was it was under HB Regional Council? If thats so why is it not publicized?

    30 minutes from there is a range with all you could possibly need, 99% of the time you'll be on your own another bonus[emoji2]

    Isn't there usually a local guy there that's always going on about Blasers ?

    Maybe sellers remorse, but otherwise a friendly enough chap.....lovely guy in fact.....take him a pie.

    Yes I will look at it a bit further. I understand it has a few benches and mounds out to 400?
