Never been to Ripley, are they strict or are the safety officers relaxed like Belmont?  I hate it when the range officers are on your back 24/7,  prefer to relaxed atmosphere and not have them cough behind me constantly  ;)

A lot more relaxed than at Belmont
the rules are a little different, no gunbags on the range and all guns are racked for ceasefires!

A good opportunity for non shooters to have a go and get a little instruction!

If you like relaxed our range at Coffs  is as relaxed as you can get and non licensed people are welcome every day for a free go it's been quiet a while since I've been to Belmont or Ripleys

Haha yes nsw does have a few downfalls I do miss the qld regulations we can't even use our pistols on our own property anymore and of course no fold buttstocks and what not though from what I hear it's still not as bad as WA  :P

So again not much interest!

Seems to me most but not all preppers here are all talk and no action
suppose typing from an armchair is easy but actually getting up and doing something
is way too much hard work!

Everyone must already be expert grade at firearm then ;D

I would have loved to come mate but dislocated my arm for which now I pay dearly with pain :(  Haven't been able to work for over 2 weeks now and I don't think shooting will help the recovery :(

No way I can get down south these days, but OTOH if anyone wants to come and shoot at Biggenden and camp either at the range or in the nearby Mt Walsh NP I'm up for that.

I'd love to but I got a hunter class comp on tomorrow, from memory they do mostly f class at Ripley? I'd love to have a go at that our range is only 200 meter With our other local at 600 but is always booked out I'd like to do some more long distance stuff

Well the meet came and went
In the morning stillness I managed to fine tune the windage on three of my rifles.
One workmate attended and had a good time! no one from here attended!
