Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Tim,

You've made your point (multiple times). I'm going to lock this thread. How about we resume the discussion when its all over, then we'll know whether I was naive or you were paranoid.

Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Well I don't believe its the time to make a big noise criticising public policy. The priority for everyone should be supporting it. Think about the health workers and other frontline people risking their own health, not to mention the victims and their families. Think about the workers losing their ...

Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Sorry you feel that way Jason. But don't you think this is a time when we have to just pull our heads in and wait things out? I admire your passion for our sport, but in situations like the world is in now, minority groups (which we are I'm sorry to say) will get very little sympathy, from Govts or ...

Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Jason. Please read my post again. I was referring to gun owners, not dealers. Dealers need our support and I hope as businesses they get help. But I am not convinced that the need to buy guns and ammunition at this time is a desperate need. Anyone who does have critical needs would surely already ha...

Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Can we please keep the discussion confined to what is announced rather than whether its fair or unfair for gun owners. Before this is over there is going to be suffering and hardship on a huge scale. We can revisit these things later when we have the benefit of hindsight.

Re: WA and QLD close dealers down

Victoria has just announced a ban on sales of firearms and ammunition effective immediately. No details, and no mention yet of closing dealers.

Re: What are you doing to stay sane?

Other sports seem to be considering the same question as this thread. The following is doing the rounds at my wife's croquet community :D Heard a Dr. on TV saying in this time of Coronavirus staying at home we should focus on inner peace. To achieve this we should always finish things we start and w...

Re: What are you doing to stay sane?

In the early stages of designing a Hexta target housing/handling system. It involves a weatherproof cover for leaving targets in the emplacements, and a multi-purpose trolley for transporting and rotating targets in two axes for ease of maintenance access. Some external modifications to the target b...

Need to identify some powder

I have a 4Kg plastic bottle of ADI powder which has the front label missing. The back label has MEM 4959 on it. I think its probably 2208 but am hoping someone can confirm?

Re: Queens

I agree these Coronavirus discussions aren't particularly useful. No-one really knows where things are going. The TV news is saturated with it, and you can keep track of shooting events via the NRAA website and S & T Association mail-outs etc. So I'll lock this thread, and take a critical view o...
