This is a taboo topic on a couple of other forums, for whatever mis-guided reasons, so I thought I'd start a thread about it here. I know there's quite a few people out there who collect both watches and guns, so now you have a home for your discussions. Hopefully we'll get to see some nice eye-candy and interesting threads. We only ask that you try not to discuss gun topics relating directly to politics, since it tends to create conflict where there usually wouldn't be any. There's better more-suited forums (and Facebook) for those types of discussions. Everything from collecting, gun-smithing, sporting uses, etc, would be considered well suited to conversation on ΩF. I moved to Australia 7 years ago, and unfortunately had to give up my Winchester shotgun (an antique goose gun in great shape), and the air rifles I used for plinking at home. Along with my wife, we've finally completed all of the paperwork and testing for our 'Category A/B', which licenses us for most rifles/shotguns in Australia (no semi-auto). I'd been putting it off for quite a while since it's a big pain in the ass to complete. We're both members of the SSAA, which is basically Australia's version of the NRA. It's long-range shooting which interests me the most. I'd like to build a nice setup and join a local range sometime soon. I'd also really like to get in to hunting, I just don't know anyone who's interested enough to join me. If I were go on a shopping spree today without any budgetary restrictions, I'd acquire the following goodies with the best optics I could find The DTA model (2nd shot) is tacticool overload, but I still love it since it's a modular design. You can swap calibres, all the way up to .338 Lapua.
