    I only buy online. For factory new brass ammo it's about $250-350 per 1000 shipped depending on sales for like basic pmc, American Eagle, xm193, m855, etc.


    That Hornady black 75gr was like $215 shipped for 400 rounds.

    Prototype is a success, I already cut the excess chain. Time to buy enough of that stuff to hang 16 targets and build 3 more stands.

    Apex and Kvar almost always have Russian and Bulgarian 74 mags for sale. You also have the marketplace at AKfiles. I can always find what I need there, even more rare items that are never in stock.

    I like that setup. Seems like it should be sturdy enough for extended use and has some means for adjustment. I may copy that in the future when I get some space to shoot steel.

    You need to the be a ssaa member (sporting shooters of Austerlia association) then join a pistal or shooting club, complete a 6month prodation, then the club will sponser you and only then can you apply for a had gun license (cat h) if you are approved for a license you then have to complete a certain amount of competition shoots each year to retain your license.

    Price wise its
    Ssaa membership $100 anualy
    club membership $140
    Application for license $280
    Firearm certifacte $180
    Some clubs charge a fee for every sponsership letter up to $200 per firearm
    then an anual license fee of $50.
    If you dont have a safe add on the price of that and its a very expensive hobby

    Im in the process at the moment.

    Riffles are easier to obtain

    If you dont have a firearms license
    Step 1 complete a safty awarness test at your LGS cost $25
    Step 2 lodge test to local (WAPOL) western Australian police it has a 30 day cooling off peroid cost $280
    Step 3 you will recieve conformation from the goverment that you can progress with your license, then you have to show proof that you have installed a safe via pictures and documentation.
    Step 3 pay for firearm and recieve a serviceability certificate.
    Step 4 go online and lodge certificate along with your reason (genuine need) for the rifle.
    step 5 lodge forms at post office but you also have to supply a property letter from a land owner giving you permission to hunt on there property with the requested riffles (some land owners sell property letter for up to $250) cost to lodge form $180
    Step 6 wait for new license to be mailed out (wait times can be from 2 week to 3months) and then you can pick your firearm up.


    Any additional firearms after that you will still need to suply property letters and pay the $190

    Damn, i thought we had to jump through a shit load of hurdles here in California but man you sure as hell have to go through a marathon of hurdles. Best of luck to you sir, hope you get the rifle you want, and thanks for the education.

    Yeah man, it’s badass. I’ll grt one for sure at some point I was waiting a long time for those to come out and I wasn’t willing to pay 15 bucks to pre order it. I love that they made it in orange.

    For some reason it’s tough to convince my wife I need more knives lol. I have the hidden canyon and it’s a sweet hunting blade as well.

    Ill never be able to get the riffles I want as I cant purchase a semi auto as Im not a primary producer but Im staring to build a collection, 10 and counting. On the upside my dad just received his dealers license wich will make the procces easier. Plus it gives me the oppertunity to go on "demos" with him at farmers properties so they can test run semi autos and pump action shotguns both of which are restricted to normal folk.
