Gun cleaning – just do it!

We all know the scenario, head out to the range or for a hunt, end up putting none (or minimal) rounds through a gun, then get home after a long day and get tempted to put the firearm straight back into the safe. Probably not the best of ideas. Gun cleaning needs to be part of your habitual routine.

The ARB 4×4 Track Pack

I liked the idea of externally storing the smelly stuff. In addition, the ARB design gives you a few extra pockets for storing stuff that you often need when working on or around the outside of the truck. In my case, the obligatory Morley's on one side, some rubbish bags and window wiper fluid on the other, and a couple of levelling blocks in the side.

Raglan via the back roads!

It was time to head away on another mini-adventure. While not necessarily looking for narly trails, I did want to at least get off tar-seal. So, after a bit of research online, I decided on a trip down to Raglan via Port Waikato.

A trip to Hot Water Beach in the Defender

Two of my oldest and very best friends have long worked at holiday camps. Previously the Parkiri Beach Holiday Camp, and more previously, the Hot Water Beach Top 10 Holiday Park. For many, many years I have tried to regularly escape Auckland out to see them, and in the last few, the girls have been coming along as well.

Halal Hunting

Through my involvement with the Firearms Safety Training for the NZ Police, I am always reminded of the wide diversity of Firearms Owners and Hunters in New Zealand. Of particular interest to me, has been the feasibility and details surrounding Halal Hunting - what is permissible - what is achievable for Muslims wanting to hunt their own meat in Aoteroa.

Setting up the Lithgow Arms LA101 22LR

In true form - I have a 22 comp next week - and the rifle didn't have a scope on it. Time to head out and quickly sort the rifle for the shoot.

Spoilt for choice – the Leatherman Signal vs Leatherman MUT

One of the 'disadvantages' of working in a store surrounded by gear is you get spoilt for choice. So, I figured I might as well take advantage of things and do some quick comparisons.
