I am new to your stunning forum and enjoyed a lot of the articles listed before I considered to register here.
I am 34 and have enjoyed shooting since childhood. I got various national trophies on school level and was the top shot in South Africa in 1991. We used Anschutz 64 .22 single shot rifles back then sponsored to schools by the National Defence Force.
Since my school days I have owned a CZ75 Serial number S7515. This is a remarkable handgun and is considered in South Africa as a true workhorse. I sold it due to a lack of funds whilst during my University years (one of my biggest mistakes ever). I also own a Lee Enfield .303 (.311 as everybody know) No 4 MK II with Parker Hale sniper sights.
My dad sold me his Belguim Browing Hi-Power last year and I hope to get the licence somewhere in 2008. Yes - it can take up to 3 years to obtain your firearm licence in RSA due to the strict (and sometimes bizzare licencing laws).
In the mean while (whilst waiting for the licence) I will enjoy the company of my new friends - YOU !!!
