We have been lucky this year. Sorry to hear
My friends in Australia tell me there is widespread acceptance of the government's measures. Nevertheless we see reports of protests like in the link below.Our governing body has just announced the cancellation of the 2021 Trap, Sporting Clays, and ISSF (bunker and ISSF skeet) nationals. COVID outbreaks, border closures, travel restrictions and general pain-in-the-backsideness meant that conducting the events couldn't go ahead. It's a damn shame. Two years running with no Trap nationals.
Most people seem to agree with the decision, and aren't being critical of the national body.
A good friend of mine is a retired 2 Star Admiral and the US State Department and Australian government asked him to assist in the Australian fleet submarine build project a couple of years back.and now they'll be emptier than a politician's head.
Shooting is open in some states but not others. Most borders between states are closed.Any new word on shooting opening up again.
Sorry to hear hang in there. To all your countrymenShooting is open in some states but not others. Most borders between states are closed.
My state (South Australia) is fully open for shooting for South Australian residents. Victoria, ACT and NSW are in lockdowns of various descriptions. I'm not sure if any form of shooting is available.
AFAIK-and it changes daily, I have enough trouble keeping up with my own state-the other states and territory are shooting.
When will we have open borders? Not til next year, I suspect.
Don’t worry about what I say. Sounds like your government will protect you and keep you safe just like ours. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside doesn’t it? Thank god you don’t get to shoot.Excellent. So nice to have uninformed people tell us how to live our lives.
