Five guns every Aussie should own
The trusty 'ol .22, the plinkers delight, the bunny buster, the gun you almost certainly learned to shoot with. There are a bunch of other great rimfires, the .22mag and 17hmr to name just a couple but every real Aussie owns at least one .22lr.
There was a time not long ago when the .222rem was the mainstay of farmers and the bane of foxes everywhere, I still use one but its slowly been taken over by the .223rem, 22-250 and a host of other varmint rounds.
I don’t care which one graces your safe as long as you’ve got one.
308, 30-06 and 30-30 have put more meat in freezers than anyone could ever imagine. These days your choices are endless with no shortage of new fangled magnums, ultra-mags and short magnums to add to the line up.
From rabbits, quail and clay pigeons to Goats, pigs, buffalo and dinosaurs. There is not a animal in the world that can’t be dropped with the right 12ga load, I might not want to get that close to T-rex but if I had to I’d be glad for a couple of good slugs. 'ol trusty single barrels, side by sides, under and overs, levers, bolt guns and straight pulls. The shotgun is the most versatile gun on the planet and every Aussie should have one, if not 10!
and most importantly a Three-O-Three
Vegemite, Gum tree’s, Drop Bears and .303’s! There isn’t much that’s more Aussie than a Thee-oh, about the only thing I can think of is one of the .303 wildcats. .303-22, 303-25, 303-243, 303-270 and the mighty .303-35 chambered in Mk111’s, No.4’s and P14’s to name just a few classics.
Anyway that’s my 5 guns every Aussie should own.
