Mr Knowall has informed me that they have shut down the national parks to travellers camping and hunters for hunting today.....
Thanks for letting us know Joe. That doesn't sound good. Most likely don't want the city people around the country people infecting them.

Had a look at the site....https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/get-into-n ... -19-update
It appears Alpine National Park is not closed though...

I hunt, I shoot, I camp, I fish. They are the great reset buttons in my life.

I think I have a couple of items in the current shipment.
Yeah I've got an R8 300wm Safari barrel which I won't need till June 2021 anyway. :handgestures-thumbup:
Hopefully that works, but I'd call May 21 and Africa a "maybe" at this stage. :cry: :cry:

So have any states deemed gun shops non essential retail and closed them down yet?
I’ve read the NSSF in the US has managed to keep a few open by lobbying governments who are locking everything else down.
The Australian situation seems to be if you give anyone an exemption to stay open or leave the house everyone thinks it applies to them so 24 hours later the premier is out updating the list of specific closures.
And I type this sitting in my work clothes about to go and see if Brisbane traffic has noticeably receded under stage 2 - I doubt it

USA is a state by state proposition. I believe 13 traditionally anti gun states have closed gun stores. I was surprised that Arizona was proposing to close gun shops as they are generally pretty pro gun what with no licence required for open or concealed carry there. One or two states have said that gun stores are specifically okay to stay open eg Illinois, which is surprising too since they have been very anti gun in the past. Anyhow, thats my take as a total non resident :lol: :lol: :lol:

Still trading in NSW from what I understand, just low stock of ammo in the smaller shops.

Got word that OSA aren't shutting down at the moment, however this could change at any moment. They have just received a Blaser shipment but it's not as complete as we expected. :handgestures-thumbup:
