    Well, that's it... a few loose ends to tie up, a few bits to cram in the rucksack( scopes, guns, kitchen sink, you know the sketch ), and it's off to the airport for the 7pm flight to SA, touch down 7am tomorrow morning.

    Feels a bit odd, 6 months of putting this and that together for 3 days of shooting has finally come around...

    Loopy & Mick are out there, and I'm off with the Welsh contingent today... the rest of the England squad land Tuesday.

    If I can get on the net, i'll try and take some shots etc and get them on... if not i'll send back texts to Rich and he can post.

    :shot:

    well the gun is checked in... All nice and easy... Think the ba staff enjoyed something unusual happening... Ended up taking shots of the x ray scans as it went through the machine, talking to them about shooting and photography, and showing them the world cup...they even let me sling a few kilos in hand luggage to avoid the excess weight charge on my suitcase :)

    well i've just managed to snuffle a computer here at the SA Hunters HQ... very interesting and all good fun so far.

    the guns went through customs like a breeze (i've snapped a few shots of the high tech xrays they did of the walther...i'll post them in the thread when i get back in country). Dale has been taking me around and showing me the best of the shooting community here... we've had a rather fun & interesting shooting comp in the bush in the midst of a game drive (which we lost)... won't give the game away on that as I want to get the rest of the team to have a go. Had an awesome bush bbq with some excellent hospitality, even tasted the vary rare and tasty Fresh Water Abalone...or Ox Bollock as I found out afterwards.

    Gotta run... but it's hot, and the course looks tricky! :D
