water buffalo on the cattle station. the bastards were big, short sighted, grumpy and prone to charge at anything and everything

we even had a stockman killed by a cranky buff. killed him, maimed the horse which also then had to be put down

I even had one manage to flip my troopy ute. he managed to get his horns into the rear at the right angle at the right point in time and tipped it on its side. fortunately they are also a bit dumb, so while he was having a crack at goring the drivetrain I was making hay to the nearest tree
A corollary of Finagle's Law, similar to Occam's Razor, says:

"Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity"

Pretty much Glocks now, the 19 and 43 mostly. On occasion a Ruger .380 tho I dont much like it. I'm retired now so I'll never carry the AR15 again.

A nice little O/U 12G Mossberg...

Once I can convince the cheese and kisses of the necessity and all...

So the missus is on-board... (Holding your breath I know! ��) My Mossberg HS-12 Thunder Ranch 12G O/U turned up a week ago. I've got a pair of Surefire X300 Ultimate - A weapon mounted lights on their way (one each for my SiG P320 and the Mossberg O/U) but that is all the customising I will be doing...

I'll put some pics up in due course...
