Welcome to the forum. Loved my trip to AU and NZ. Would go back in a minute. Aussies and Kiwis treat you like gold. Had dinner in the Sidney Opera House and Climbed Airs rock. Beatiful area.

I don't know the details on the book you are speaking of, but with your regulations it seems to me the lever action in .357 would be great to have
and some gun owners in this country don't think we need to worry about any "little" gun/ammo restrictive legislation that comes up in Congress, or that we need to worry about anything yet

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

Welcome from the Ozarks. How is that gun control working out in Oz?
Australia is awesome. Spent R&R on a station outback in New South Wales in 1970. Family had two teenage daughters that shot wild hogs from horseback. They dragged two hogs back to the house while I was there. The kids went to school over the single sideband radio. It was a large sheep operation. Helped the dad fix fence. It seemed like a desert to me. The father had to drive sixty miles into town to meet me at the airport. We kept stopping to fix his telephone line. The phone line into the switchboard in town was his and his maintenance. He took me to the Returned Servicemans Club. They would not let me buy in that place. That was my downfall.
Next year, I made a big mistake. Told the guys on my Seabee team to put the drinks for the crew of an Aussie Navy patrol ship on my tab. They had been out a week or two and stopped for a rest. Very small crew. Maybe twenty. It was only for one night. Should have it paid off in a couple of more years. Just kidding, but it was shocking how much booze those guys drank. Put us under the table in short order and then proceeded to do some serious drinking. When I was able to read the tab the next day, I thought 'no way'. Then I looked in the spirits locker and knew it was true. We got resupply once a month, but kept ample booze reserves for emergencies, barter and political reasons. Thank goodness we didn't run dry before the next plane. It helped that nobody on the team touched an alcoholic drink for a few days.

With the gun control business, we do miss the semi autos and pump action shotties but they reckon there are more registered firearm owners than prior to 1996. The shooting sports have continued to grow in popularity.
