freedom to choose and work

WITH THE ELECTION coming up in May it’s again time to consider who to vote for, and how that vote can change our future. This is an important responsibility and the simple truth is that every vote counts, especially in a time of load-shedding, increased electricity bills, water shortages and fuel prices attaining new highs. In pondering my own decision, I realised that pretty much the same goes for hunting. Decisions and actions taken now, or not taken, will determine where we end up in terms of hunting in future. In South Africa we are well-placed as far as hunting is concerned. Yes, hunting is expensive, but the madness surrounding record prices for coloured variants (and these influencing the prices of common game like blesbuck), seems to be a thing of…

Lost Pointer I enjoyed Gregor Woods’s article about the history of Charles Boswell firearms (March 2019). However I am keen to find out if he found his pointer after almost being mauled by a bushpig? – John Weavind, Gauteng ➤ Gregor’s reply: Yes, we did find my pointer, and yes, she was caught in a wire snare. This was the second time, too. Fortunately, when she was growing up, I had trained her on a choke-chain to walk at heel and to immediately sit when I stopped walking, so I assume that as soon as she felt the snare tighten on her neck, she sat down. Her choke-chain training saved her life. On both occasions her neck suffered no injury. And on both occasions she sat like that for two days and…

‘tame’ and habituated wild animals are dangerous

WHAT IS IT about humans and their overwhelming desire to touch and stroke wild animals? You see it all the time – people offering food, even an empty hand, and if nothing happens, maybe a at or a cuddle. We see regular reports in the local a and international newspapers about incidents involving people and wild animals. Even wild animals that were raised from an early age in captivity can be extremely dangerous. A kudu bull with a full set of horns, raised at a hotel in the bush in the old Rhodesia, broke a man’s forearm when he reached out and touched one of its horns, after first giving it a piece of bread. Even without the knowledge that you should never, ever touch a horned animal on the horns, why…

sig-sauer p320

WHEN TIM BRONKHORST of Tactical HQ asked if Magnum would be keen to try out a Sig P3320 X-Five, I could not hide enthusiasm. Sig’s P320 pistols have according to international sales figure done very ell, and the launch the new X-Five competition pistol is a natural evolution of the series. Presented in a neat plastic carry case, the X-Five pistol in 9mmP comes with four 21-round steel magazines, chamber flag, spare fibre optic sight inserts (red and green) and a comprehensive user manual. My first impression was that it’s a strikingly good-looking pistol which sits as comfortably in the hand as if tailor-made and points naturally. Sig’s new full-size polymer x-frame boasts some excellent features: the grip-angle has been improved; it has a small beaver-tail and an undercut trigger-guard facilitating a…
