Thread: Living the dream in Africa...

    Living the dream in Africa...

    Hi all, i live in Botswana working in the construction industry. I spend weekends away hunting the Kalahari bushveld of Botswana or the hills, rivers and dams in Kwa-Zulu Natal (South Africa).

    I stumbled across your web page while researching a new rifle im interested in...
    Im desperately looking for a Blaser R8 with 3 barrel options, 243, 30-06 and a 9.3x62.

    It is really difficult to aquire a license in Botswana as the government out here is only releasing 50 rifle licences and 50 shot gun licenses this year! By aquiring this rifle with the 3 barrels I will be able to licence them all under the same weapon.

    Any feedback on anyone interested in selling a rifle please let me know.

    Many thanks,

    Sean

    Welcome to the site.
    You are so lucky, been to Botswana twice, only camera safari, but what a place.
    Very jealous.

    Well, you can sort out the 243 & 30-06 from here and then look for a 9.3 x 62 barrel?

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.
