I also love shooting my223 Bushmaster AR15 with silencer.
I also enjoy chasing high country game with mySako 300WSM or shooting long range out to 1600m with one of the great rigs that I can help set you up with, similar to ourSako TRG package. Please contact me if you would like to know more about these and I can tailor make the perfect package for your shooting needs
I also enjoy rabbit shooting. Please contact me if you would like to know more about these
I like this air rifle because I fired it for the first time and got a 9/10.
I have an indepth background in all aspects of hunting, but I also love recreational shooting such as pistol shooting, 3 gun, and long range precision shooting out past 1 km. I have a real appreciation and passion for the engineering that goes into the design and build of a quality firearm. I am pictured here with a SOCOM Navy Seal AAC designed 300 Blackout which can be shot with any AR platform rifle with just the change of a barrel. I like these rifles because they were designed with purpose and intent by the Navy Seals Special Operations Command and Advanced Armament Corporation with deadly intent to out perform the ballistics of the AK47's 7.62x39 on special operations, and can still be used with short barrels, subsonic's, and has been widely accepted and praised by elite forces worldwide. I also have a real love for Mauser K98's, Springfield 1903's, and even Kentucky long rifles. I have spent a lot of time in the wilderness, and have also served in the army. I believe in ethical hunting, precision, and accuracy. If you'd like to know more on any of the above come see me in store.
Other hunting I love spotlighting Rabbits and Possums using aSako 222 Vixen.
I also enjoy going home for the weekend and having a good clean up on goats and pigs.
My favourite type of shooting is Clay Target Shooting. I also enjoy rabbit shooting and shooting most types of shotguns.
Contact me if you have and questions about our website.

I like the AR15 because it's a pretty cool gun and fun to shoot.
My favourite type of shooting is pistol and plinking with myRuger 10/22.
I would like to buy this Steyr AUG because it is the A-Cat version of the weapon the NZ Army use, it feels great in the hand, compact and solid.
I like the ar-15 for its versatility and style. It is compatible with a lot of aftermarket parts and accessories which makes it unique to everyone. My favorite type of shooting is target and 3-gun. I like hunting deer and pigs but my favorite type of hunting is on the Paintball/ Airsoft fields. If you need advice on Paintball or Airsoft please contact me.

I like this M1 Carbine because it is very rare and still in mint condition! I have only done a little bit of shooting, including clay shooting in America.
Working in the IT department at Gun City is definatly a very unique environment!.
