    G'day Mates,

    Names Jim from Wait Awhile (Western Australia) getting into IPSC, it is one of the only ways to get licensed for a hand gun in West Oz.

    Have a quality trainer in the form of a tanaka G18 to get my triggers time in and eyeing up 9mm laser trainers (laserlyte etc) so I can actually get some home practice in without getting arrested and loosing my right to own a firearm before I even join a club.

    Oftentimes I really wish I was born an American. Do you lot have it good with your gun laws.

    Any way hooroo.

    Yeah mate, one medically diagnosed mentally disabled unstable individual illegal obtains firearms and then with military precision guns down 35 people and wounding 23. There are loads of conspiracy theories around that one...

    We are all to apathetic over here when it comes to trusting our government.
    We would all line up for barcodes if our government told us to... save a few that is.

    Can't change the past. But hopefully we can guide our future.

    Yeah mate, is a funny old creature Australian grit and "larrikinisum." As far as independence goes the Eureka stockade didn't have the man power or momentum to achieve independence so we never had the chance to form a bill of rights.

    But when chips are down we will always stand by the United States unwaveringly.

    Greetings, Jim, from Everglades country in southwest Florida. I'm glad you found us and joined GT.

    Hope you'll participate often by sharing your views and questions. You are sure to have unique perspectives on firearm topics like regulation, given Australia's history. You also happen to live in a fascinating land that many Americans would like to learn more about.

    We love photos here. Post pictures of guns, people, places and other subjects that show how firearms fit into Australian culture.

    Tune in often. Be safe.
