I'm the kin folk he is talking about. Don't be fooled by the bugger he has more guns than he knows what to with, writes articles for an online magazine, and has featured in the development of several new rounds. He has also caused me to spend too much money, he taught me to reload.
Oh yeah, he is interested in shooting and reloading
However despite all of this he is not a bad man, and a real good friend
I have just returned from the states, fly fishing holiday in Montana and also got to do some gopher shooting. I think the guy we stayed with had more ammunition than the Sportsman in Exeter holds!
He showed us some video and pics of his trip into the Bob Marshall wilderness, 4 guys in his party and all were successful in shooting a bull elk, i have got to try that someday.
