Re: Lefties and Leverguns

Hey mate. I am a southpaw with a couple of lever action shotguns (you can see one in the long-arm show and tell thread). As above got very comfortable very quickly with this configuration. Also used to have a .22lr lever gun (tube feed) and now have a ruger 96/22 (mag feed) both being very left frie...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

Hi all. Just a quick note from Oz to say thanks for sharing all of your experiences and lessons learnt. Certainly given me things to consider. While risk of flood here is minimal the panic buying and it's flow on effects is eye opening. Also wanted to say how amazing it has been to watch the Cajun/T...

Re: Small Trauma Kit (WARNING: large image files)

Thanks Taipan821! Believe or not I have been asking myself "what would an Aussie trauma kit look like"? This thread has been like cheating on the exam. Got a question though, I don't see any No. 13 or 15 bandages in there. While no where near an Izzy emergency bandage, given their size I thought the...

Re: HELP: advice on bolt action carbines/scout rifles

Hey mate. Yeah we saw a similar trend here with the humble Mosin. Was cheap for a while, with cheap (by Australian standards) ammo. When they first came out I got myself a mosin and a spam can of ammo for about $500 which is pretty darn cheap over here. Then put a synthetic stock and long eye relief...

Re: HELP: advice on bolt action carbines/scout rifles

[quote="The Twizzler"]You know there is a special way to load the clips right? You don't just slide them in there. Each rim of the round has to slide on top of the round below it. I just say that as when I got my first surplus rifle I didn't know. Hey mate. Yeah, after some googling a figured out it...

Re: Show and Tell thread, Longarm edition

I fail at photography, but thought folks might be interested in this one. Quite (in)famous in Australia, but probably not so much in the US, given proliferation of pump-action shotguns. I present the Adler 110 Lever Action Shotgun. Currently includes: Tru-glo fat bead front site. paracord wrap on ha...

Re: HELP: advice on bolt action carbines/scout rifles

Really interesting thread as I to have been pondering some sort of centrefire that ticks all the boxes (and scout style rifles are in the mix, with a particular fetish for the Savage). As a southpaw I am starting to lean towards a lever action though. Just a couple quick uns for the OP. 1) if you ar...

Re: State wide black out: South Australia

Thanks for those tips too Shillard. ABC was super useful. The issue we had with SMS was the delay. Seemed to get held up and then all come at once. Certainly better than nothing though. Just a quick post-script. So after our chat post blackout my father-in-law picked up a generator - a Honda EU2000i...

Re: State wide black out: South Australia

Thanks for everyone's positive feedback. Much appreciated. Certainly some stuff to work on, but could have been a whole lot worse. Couple of interesting points post blackout: - went out to replace mum's radio at a electronics dealer - sold out. Their lighting section also hit hard. - wife's folks as...

State wide black out: South Australia

Hi folks. Long time stalker, seldom poster here. Just wanted to share an experience I had yesterday in relation to a State wide power black lasting approx 4.5 to 5 hours (for me at least - some areas of state are still without power). Pretty much amateur hour compared to some of the guys on here but...

Oz car trauma kit - info and advice

Hi all. Encouraged by being witness to a rather freakish accident a few weeks back (the driver went through 3 lanes of traffic, mounted a curb, smashed through a street sign, clipped two trees and mounted a light pole in such a way as to the driver not getting a scratch) I decided to put together a ...

G'day from Oz

Hi all. Thanks to all those making contributions to the wealth of info this forum is. Two of my goals this year are to put together a basic trauma/first aid kit for the car and get together a basic 3 day bug out bag (both on a reasonable budget). This forum has been of massive assistance in pursuing...
