Gidday Aaron,
They're only over powered until get here, I remember when a British member moved over he arrived with a 12ft/lb Bsa now he's out there hunting with a 40ft/lb Daystate Air Ranger,  you know the saying, When in Rome ;)

Overpowered?
Hehehe Aaron, I'm just so happy that my family emigrated here many years ago so that I get to buy great high power, large calibre pcp's produced in my homeland, afterall doesn't everyone need airguns that can drop a goat or pig???  ;D
Must admit my Lonestar .25 does make some pretty big holes  ;D

Well the last plumber I used died so theres at least one vacancy, and before you ask it wasn't because of lead poisoning ;-)

Good tradies are always in demand here so im sure you would be most welcome, come for a holiday, go hunting with a few of us around the country and im certain wild horses couldn't drag you back...

Theres bound to be a need for plumbers in the near future in the Christchurch area with the rebuild thats soon to be done due to the Earthquake but personally I wouldnt want to live there with all these reoccuring quakes, I forget how many thoussnd theres been now but its heaps snd there was another only days ago.
When the big one hit my house wad shaking and I live about 4 hours drive away at 100kph so it must have been terrifying there on the day, but there will always be plumbing that needs fixing.

Tell your missus your coming over for a look and to suss out work potential and come hunting, our NZ $ is about 40p so your is worth good money over here.

Harley is a new nom de plume, was on the old NZ Airgunners forum as Verminator.

I reside in the bush in southern QLD and use my air rifles (and powder burner) for pest animal management.  Any introduced feral animal smaller than a brumby may find itself in the cross hairs.
I reckon I can kill that!

I was invited by Darren in a thread he made at the Dianawerk Collective forum

visited your OLD forum many times to read what you air gunners had to say

BUT this "NEW" forum compared to the old one is like; NIGHT and DAY

anyone that has visited the DWC forum knows that I am a RABID, FANATIC, etc.. Diana fan

nothing WRONG with the other brands, I have some of those also, from; China, UK, USA, German, Spain, Russia

I have to get a handle on the many functions offered in this forum to get familiar with it

Thanks for the opportunity this forum provides the air gunners community not only in NZ since I am typing this from Tampa, Florida in the USA
"and remember, it's 70% the shooter and 30% the rifle"
