As a change from vineyards lunches, Harry wanted to do something completely different and sends the following report -
"23 February 2010

A pleasant hour and a half with Sebastian of Shootopia -
at the Stellenbosch shooting range where I made holes in a paper target and demolished some blocks of wood and bricks.

The tools used were several Taurus revolvers; -

.38 special, 4” barrel, .357 Magnum, .357 snub nose, .44 Magnum (of Dirty Harry 'make my day, punk!' fame), and a .454 Casull 'Raging Bull' – one bigggg mother!.

Pistols included a Sig Sauer 9mm, and a Glock .40 caliber.

I was pleasantly surprised to find I could still hit the target and actually managed a 5 cm group with the .357 Magnum.

I'd never shot Trap before but totally destroyed a clay or two.

I had so much fun that I went back a few days later to try the 38s in double action mode, which is more difficult to maintain accuracy because of the effort required to pull the trigger. I also made a 5 cm group with a Colt .45 which impressed me."

I'm trying to make my mind up if this is really cool or just scares the piss out of me!

You and your father got the fishing gene; I got the hunting- and -blowing- things -up gene.
