Safari Club International 2011

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Safari Club International convention in Reno.
As an avid hunter and gun collector I'd been looking forward to this convention for some time.
Here are some photos from my trip

I enjoyed meeting up with Jason Morton of CZ-USA and master-engraver Rene Ondra and I purchased this beautiful 1911 pistol!

Here's a close up of my incredible Dan Wesson 1911 45 ACP pistol.
Fully engraved stainless steel!
It's a beautiful gun, a fully functional work of art that is destined to be
daily carry pistol. Plus now I have an excuse to buy a Galco holster to go with it!

Here's a photo of me at the Kimber Booth with Dwight Van Brunt.
I'm holding my new 22LR 1911 pistol (the third identical pistol I've bought in the last two years)
A really great gun!
I shoot a Kimber 22LR 1911 200+ times every Sunday.
It's one of my all-time favourite training pistols.

Here I am with Peter Harding and Matt Graham at the Hunt Australia booth.
I booked a three-week hunt in August and will film a new super-exciting hunt DVD while I'm there.

Sterling silver 1911 grips designed by Clint Orms which may be destined for one of my many 1911 pistols.

Pondering the purchase of a 12ga x 12ga and 9.5 x 53 "drilling"at Cabela's booth.
Is anyone able to change 9.53 to 9.62 x 74R?

I dropped by the Wolfe Publishing booth to see Alaska Master-Guide Phil Shoemaker.

I always end up in the middle of the action!

And finally, here are some great examples of the taxidermy on display at SCI!

I really enjoyed SCI, I made some good purchases and met lots of friendly people. I'm already looking forward to next year.

See you there!
