As I told the missus afterwards, "I immediately regret offering to sell my gun to that guy." Fortunately, while I got his contact info, he never got mine. So at least he's not gonna chase me up about it any time soon.
This is coming from a guy who doesn't hunt, but I dont see the issue about not respecting the animals he kills. In Australia, practically every animal is trying to kill you, or wants to kills you. I don't see a problem with taking joy in killing stupid animals that would murder you and rape your dog while your wife and kids watch.
The things that want to kill us are the goddamn snakes and spiders. Kangaroos can gore you, but they're typically pretty skittish creatures. Usually they only fight if cornered and wounded.
And most of the other things we hunt are foreign invasive species that other countries hunt anyway, like razorback hogs, deer, etc.
you don't fuck your partner. you fuck your girlfriend. if you want to be taken seriously in adult society you get married in which case you won't be getting any fucking. from your wife anyway.

I had a real go at him
they're about the only thing in the bush that will eat a snake and not siphon gas out of your car
we used to feed them all the time, they're not dumb animals and their certainly not pests
magpies can be a nuisance
cockatoos and parots wreck fruit trees
I kind of get why some people shoot non-game birds, I'm not a sentimental type
but bluebirds, wag-tails, kookaburras, kindfishers, kurawongs
No offense meant, but where do Australians get their vocabulary? They were an English colony, but half of the words sound alien. Kookerburra kullabar billabong mongawogs. Is it aboriginal? Or Irish?
When you go to the southern Appalachians, you can't understand them because the mix English, redneck, Cherokee and Gaelic.
>leaving dead roos
Uh....I know some of their family are considered pests, but aren't they decent eating as well?
Are there no butcher shops that will take the meat/animal and do useful shit with it?

I carry an airhorn for that reason when I go shooting now.
They have no regard for other people when they shoot. Never had to shoot back though, they usually stop with the airhorn going off.
Me on BLM driving through a canyon, bullets zip over head, come out of canyon asap, shitdicks using a small hill (maybe 2m tall at most) at the entrance to canyon as a "backstop"

Does not compute.
I'm pretty much a hippy, but even I have to admit that Australia has a huge pest problem, feral cats for instance have decimated dozens of native species and literally driven some to extinction, I think that in the interest of the ecosystem it is necessary that their population be curved, even if its done by shitheads like the guy op talked to.

Most Canadian gun owners I spend any time with are good about following the rules. I don't go to a range since I have lots of crown an hour away from my house. But christ that was a random day and the fact this guy was out and about with a semi auto 22 and no license makes me hate Toronto cottagers who act like aristocratic fudds

Why did he take them inside and drig them? Was he interrogating them? Does he not know the effects of simple waterboarding? Why was he shooting to wound anyway?

Literally, these were some of the most misbehaved kids I've ever encountered shooting. Maybe even anywhere in public. It was their first time even firing a gun, and this guy wanted to start them on a fuckimg handgun after like 10 shots each on an air rifle. The same kids that would argue about basic safety like ear or eye protection, and couldn't follow any of his basic directions. I'd understand starting shooting early with a .22, but an autoloading pistol with substantial recoil. Kids who ignore things like "keep it pointed that way".
Sometimes, I am in favor of stricter gun control. But maybe it's natural selection?
I'd love an over-under 12 gauge derringer, but holy shit look how unbelievably high that barrel is lmao

For the record the man knows his guns and taught me a lot about shooting. This was one instance where I knew the rifle better than he did and he refused to take my word for it. I constantly ask him if he wants to shoot the 300 mag again. He tells me to go fuck myself every time.

We always let him take the lead after that.
How many boxes of ZQI .308 do you guys think I could fit into a big diesel engine once everything has been removed?
Would NEVER do this irl btw
Depends on if this engine was ever intended to be turned over, if no then a block with the cylinder sleeves removed and the block cut between the cylinder wells. I imagine you could fit at least five or six thousand rounds in a big 9.0L V8.
this happened with my uncle before I was born; in 1985 or so

Uncle is a total bro too, gave me my first .22 and taught me gun safety with my dad when I was 10 and gave me a glock when I turned 18 so I would be safe at college.

Since that day they've all kinda chilled on the rhetoric and most now own Marlin 795s or 10/22s and even have come shooting pistols with me. The guy who was a fucking dipshit with his short mag still shits at the mention of my pistol ownership though.
>At the range

Fucking COD caused little shits like these to treat weapons like toys
Yeah I look kind of like that elf in the middle screeching like Rob Halford in the pic, and the kid was an actual half black manlet
Well at the time COD was still based in WWII lol All the hype around it now was just not a thing back then at all.

Happy australia day mates!
The only thing I dont care how I kill is a feral cat.
As long as the bullet hits it I dont care how long it takes to die.
As for roos, always a chest or headshot with the .223 (FMJ for minimum mince). and a .22 for a finishing shot if they are still alive when I get to it.
Magpies should be declared a pest in urban areas and permits given to shoot them when living around schools and high populatied areas.
Fuck that cunt killing native species though. Kookaburras are awesome birds.
There is a dam down near the border that has near on 1000+ cockatoos, Its good fun reducing their numbers with a .22.
I have shot roos with a .22 but close range and accurate headshots only. Night as well throw a rock if your not aiming well.
Dont know about the other states laws but in the Territory you can take them home, I usually go out for some dog meat and sell a couple of them to the locals.
This is the biggest problem in Aus, you have to be a member of the gun club, have to suck the elitist assholes cock to be liked by them, have to be regarded as "dangerous" untill they deem you skilled enough, then MAYBE after 6 months of rocking up on sunday mornings, you might be able to get a key to go there any time you like.
Fuck that, it costs almost $300 in fees, SSAA and other charges to become a club member, and it gets renewed yearly, and you have to pay again.
Im lucky to live in Alice Springs. Can drive 50klm and shoot anywhere.
once brought my SVT40 to a Danish Fudd-hunting club. RO asks me if i also brought my machine pistol during marking, I reply that i couldnt fit it in the bag, we chuckle and keep shooting.
Not everything gun-related is bad in scandinavia
