Good Morning Frank....

Yes the firearm laws are very strict here but the are no laws agains the purchase of ammo....

The laws with regards to having hand guns has not changed, they and automatic arms are still either prohibited or very restricted..... They have just changed the laws about the registration of long arms.....

This I am sure was brought into the country many many years ago when the original owner immigrated here and did not fall under any of the firearm regulations at the time....

Greetings Mike,
The law is a complete arse, its the same here, one can just go out and buy a .450/577 Martini, but, not its ammunition, moreover, the moment I want to use it, then it becomes a section 1 firearm again, I was looking at a very nice ZAR contract Martini, by Westley Richards, not long ago.
Maybe we should get together! :woohoo:
Regards Frank

Hi Mike,
I was thinking solid drawn brass, your rolled stuff is nice, but has to be handled rather carefully! :)
