You will notice that unfortunately many of our regular specials are missing. We have sold out of a lot of lines and are constantly replacing and restocking our walls. Lots more stock has landed but not on display yet, as still processing.
Due to Prudent buyers stocking up, knowing that with the suspension of firearm and ammunition manufacturing world wide, and the emptying of the USA Gun Shops that all our stock would be very hard to get in the future our Mountain of Firearms and Ammunition was reduced to 20% of normal holdings. Since then we have restocked with another mountain of ammo in all calibers but different lines. (ie. Winchester Australia ran out of most lines of .22 ammo six weeks ago, but we should have a few pallets coming in this week) . That’s Arrived and Now awaiting a large shipment from Remington.
So please phone 07 54 824099, or 07 54 825070 or 07 54 824718 for prices and availability.

Thoughts For The Week.

As I am now 72 years old and most readers probably write me off as being ‘Past It”.  I gave some serious thought to should I retire from writing this Bulletin. I have written this Thoughts of the Week a 170 times and I have been writing and getting myself into trouble since 1980 that’s 40 years starting with Lock, Stock & Barrel. However, even though I have given long and detailed explanations of how we have found ourselves disarmed, defenceless and under attack from a Super Power, 95 % of our customers (never mind the majority, the sheep that don’t even own a firearm) are blind to the extreme peril that Australia is slowly awakening to, so I have a duty to keep sending out information for as long as I am able. Unfortunately, we have to wake them from their slumbers very quickly.
Until the Lambs have become Lions and the Rule of Darkness is no more “

If Biden wins the US elections instead of Trump. Odds on are that China will move first North, then West or South cause a ‘ruse of war’ and then invade Taiwan. They know that Biden will do nothing. Taiwan will be week one, and if the US does not become involved we, Australia will be invaded in week two.

The big Rockets on bottom right can go right past Australia.

Most people who can read English know that Australia is in immediate danger from the North the most powerful nation now on earth, ‘China’. China has billions of people and, we with few people, have the largest un-tapped resource of food and minerals on the planet. It’s that simple. It’s like there is a huge Elephant in the room that no one wants to admit is there. Commentators, talking heads on TV mumble under their breath but no one is standing there pointing the finger at the visible threat. The USA might have some slight advantage in technical equipment, it might have more Aircraft Carriers. During the last five years every war game scenario fought and carried out by the Americans, was lost by the Americans. China have Island bases strategically placed around the globe and only two or three Aircraft Carriers. American Aircraft Carriers can be sunk, Islands can be devastated but not sunk and then they can be quickly re-equipped.

Even our political idiots in Canberra have woken up a little, still ludicrously un-realistic but in their latest propaganda issuance the 2020 DEFENCE STRATEGIC UPDATE, and the FORCE STRUCTURE PLAN 2020. In their Defence Strategic Up Date they say,
“It is clear, however, that Australia’s strategic environment has deteriorated more rapidly than anticipated when we made this commitment in the 2016 Defence White Paper.
Then it follows with these quotes.
“Our region is in the midst of the most consequential strategic realignment since the Second World War, and trends including military modernisation, technological disruption and the risk of state-on-state conflict. The Indo-Pacific is at the centre of greater strategic competition, making the region more contested and apprehensive. These trends are continuing and will potentially sharpen as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  Australia is at the centre of a dynamic strategic environment.
Military modernisation in the Indo-Pacific has accelerated faster than envisaged. Regional force modernisation has resulted in the development and deployment of new weapons that challenge Australia’s military capability.
Major power competition has intensified and the prospect of high-intensity conflict in the Indo-Pacific,with greater potential for military miscalculation. This could conceivably include state-on-state conflict that could engage the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
At the same time, many countries (they still don’t want to say CHINA) in the Indo-Pacific are accelerating their military modernisation, enabled by a long period of economic growth. New weapons being introduced into the region have increased range, speed, precision and lethality, placing Australian military forces at greater risk over longer distances. North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs risk provoking significant shifts in the strategic system in North Asia. Military modernisation are increasing the potential for and consequences of miscalculation. The prospect of high-intensity military conflict in the Indo-Pacific is less remote than at the time of the 2016 Defence White Paper, including high-intensity military conflict between the United States and China.”
On page 14
“Previous Defence planning has assumed a ten-year strategic warning time for a major conventional attack against Australia. This is no longer an appropriate basis for defence planning. Coercion, competition and grey-zone activities directly or indirectly targeting Australian interests are occurring now. Growing regional military capabilities, and the speed at which they can be deployed, mean Australia can no longer rely on a timely warning ahead of conflict occurring. Reduced warning times mean defence plans can no longer assume Australia will have time to gradually adjust military capability and preparedness in response to emerging challenges. This includes the supply of specialised munitions and logistic requirements, such as fuel, critical to military capability.
(We have 21 days supply at most)
Strategic warning time for conventional conflict is the time a country estimates an adversary would need to launch a major attack against it, once the adversary’s intent to do so has been established. This period is determined by indications of preparation and mobilisation of resources and capabilities. New capabilities, including longer-range missiles, ballistic missiles and offensive cyber and space capabilities, have reduced strategic warning times.
But maintaining what is a capable, but largely defensive, force in the medium to long term will not best equip the ADF to deter attacks against Australia.
The largest recapitalisation of the Royal Australian Navy in modern history, underpinned by a continuous National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise. This includes the acquisition of 12 Attack Class Submarines.”

The above are not my words, they are a repetition of what I have been writing about for may years, but this is from your Australian Government. Maybe, they have been reading my articles.The mainstream media is putting the fear of death in people with Covid 19 but have you noticed that they never regurgitate the Governments warning against China. The country that sent them Covid 19 in the first instance. I have written at great length explaining that the Covert War of Bacteriological warfare, Financial Warfare, Cyber Warfare will quickly change to Overt Warfare.

Aussi Troops toughen up playing Ozzi football.

These Government reports have large glossy pictures and must have cost a fortune to print. These photos falsely depict the ADF as a secure home for transvestites, illegal immigrants, homosexuals, officers in ill fitting uniforms, and sailors who want to take their wives and girlfriends away to sea with them. When our young men see those, what incentive does it give them to be a part of that rag tag mob carrying their packs on airport luggage wheels, or men with pony tails. It really needs sorting out. There is nothing wrong with the material, the young people of our age  would respond in the same way as they have in all of the wars of the nineteenth century, but they are desperate for good leadership.

These Two Defence Reports, Core Support for the 12 French Dead Ducks.
Even though these reports both admit that they can expect a war with China of massive proportions near our northern borders immanently, they pin most of their Defence Strategy on acquiring the 12 French Diesel Electric (Dead Ducks not even designed yet) submarines.  Earlier this year, a report from the auditor-general confirmed the Future Submarine Program was running nine months late and Defence was unable to show whether the $396 million spent so far had been “fully effective”.

French Submarines might sink before delivered in 20 years time.

In past editions I have written detailed articles exposing this huge mistake. The French make Nuclear Versions and for Australia now have to go design an Electric Diesel version which was new technology in 1910. “The Government’s own advisory body, including three American admirals, even recommended the Government should consider walking away from the project,”. Prices calculated in 2016-17 have been revised according to present exchange rates and inflation calculations amounting to around $89.7 billion, (the price went up $10 Billion in five Months) ‘The Australian’ reported citing the defence ministry.  The first Attack class submarine, to be named HMAS Attack, will be delivered to the Navy in the early 2030s or early 2040s and the last of the them in 2050s.The forecast doesn’t include the whole-of-life cost of about $145 billion of sustaining the boats. We need underwater drones capable of firing torpedoes, we need 100s of them. We need them coming off our productions lines today.

When Will Our Government Mobilise The 2 Million Licenced Shooters, who have 6 million licenced firearms?
As our only real deterrent to a land based invasion?
Prior to 1996 all members of  Australia’s Rifle Clubs (the NRA), were all members of the Australian Defence Force.  All had taken the “Oath of Service”, all could be called out by the Club Captains, all had to serve in the Defence of Australia. That was why they practised with the .308 win, 7.62 x 51 Nato round and the .223 Rem, 5.56 Nato round. For a hundred years or more they were the Militia, they were installed since Federation under the Defence Act of 1903, the Commonwealth maintained the rifle ranges subsidised the ammunition and when called those Rifle Ranges turned into training ranges, the older rifle shooters were transformed into Rifle shooting instructors, and the younger men formed the backbone of those who went to fight in World War One and World War Two and Korea and Vietnam. Billy Sing (Australian Soldier of Chinese/English descent) was just one of the thousands of examples of being a Rifle Club Shooter that gave him the edge.

Corporal John Edmonson V.C was another Rifle Club member.

Everyone who can read, knows that Australia is under threat. Everyone that can think realises that Australia is already involved and under attack by China in its Financial and Bacteriological Covert War, the realists also know that soon the Covet War will turn into an all out open Overt War. Many shooters have asked me to foretell when will our government have the sense to mobilise the 2 million licenced shooters and 6 million registered firearms so that they can be the greatest deterrent to defend Australia. Even with National Service it would take five years for us to make them all a rifle, never mind machine guns, artillery, tanks, ships planes etc.

We Have Still Lots of Stock, and More On the Way.
Prudent, readers of this Bulletin have been ensuring that they have adequate supplies to allow for long interruptions of shooting supplies, (please do not get the impression that I am advocating prepping and we should all head for the hills) but in case some readers have not noticed, its not just toilet paper that becomes hard to get when troubles on the horizen.

Chinese Troops train hard a their bases in Australian Antarctic Territory.

The March Rush.
Firstly, there was a huge rush on all of the Firearm and Ammunition shops in the USA, it seemed like that the 100 million plus, North American firearm owners all decided to go out and buy another firearm, but from information received at a later date 25% of these firearm sales went to people who had never owned a firearm before. So in March this year the largest repository of firearms in the world was sold out. Shops closed because they had no stock, others that had fishing gear had acres of empty space.

Guns Shops in the USA without stock. They will be supplied before us.

I had friends from the USA emailing me and asking if I could post a couple of bricks of .22 ammo and I had to sadly explain that it was forbidden here in Australia to post ammunition. ‘Fear events’ like this occurred in every country in the world where ammunition and firearm could be easily purchased. At first Small Arms Factories were working 24 hour shifts to ship and replace the shortages in the USA. In March 20 our Mountain of ammo was minimalised to a small hill, we have worked very hard to re-stock but there are lots of shortages in certain areas. Some small arms factories are closed maybe for good, some plan to re-open next year, some are manufacturing ventilator’s some are working at 25% capacity. 90% of all the goods produced are bound for the USA market as it is the largest market in the world and their dollars are worth more than ours. Only when that is filled will we get full stock here in Australia. Then came the “BLM” professional rioters, pillagers and looters, this emptied the US gun shops again, people are buying everything that is not nailed down to have something to defend their homes and businesses with. You cannot blame them as lots of the big cities have either laid off the Police or defunded them, or even excluded them from city centres.

American Guns Shops Run Out. Factories have limited production.

Truck drivers have stated that they will not deliver food to cities that have no police force in normal operation as they will be stopped murdered or at best beaten up and all their merchandise stolen. So the democratic led cities of the USA slide further down the slippery slope into the primordial chaos.

Meanwhile In Australia.
During the last 12 monthly articles I have (sometimes labouriously) given evidence to prove that Australia is in dire danger. (Please read some of the previous issues.)
Our real soldiers are very keen, fit and intelligent but the upper echelon are career public servants that ‘kow tow’ to politicians whims and the politically correctness of our main steam media. We need leaders that are Warriors instead of Whimps who would be more suited making their living reading horoscopes in the bottom of the tea cup.

Check this site out it explains the problems.

ADF in Disgrace

Over 50 years of peace with no viable threat to Australia these deadheaded people have created a system that enforces that the daring, bright and shining soldiers, sailors, airmen have to conform to the copy book ends, who do their time in headquarters, know their place, don’t work to hard as it will show up those who are marking time. Only then, when they are dead inside will they get ahead and be promoted. No one promotes anyone that is smarter than themselves, they would consider that as career suicide. The Defence Department disapproves of invention, individualism and any independent thinking. Yes, to work as a team, discipline, self sacrifice are paramount, but even these old essential attributes have been crushed, everyone is watching their back. Deal with them from industry and they are so slow its like they were all immersed in treacle straining to move a little bit at a time.


Between Australians and Pinko/Islamists, Commo/Greens, Laborites, Antifa, BLM.

To All Pinko/Islamists, Commo/Greens, Laborites, Antifa, BLM agitators.

We, ‘the people’ have stuck together since the late 1960’s for the sake of having a unified continent, hoping that the sheep would wake up, but with your latest release of Covid19 Kung Flu, Australia demands a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this has not worked out. You and your comrades use welfare payments stolen from ourselves (the taxpayer) taxation to pay dole bludgers to keep voting for you, and you use the number of parliamentary seats to dominate and tyrannise the majority. We produce food, electricity, coal, iron and the wealth of this continent, your group takes the benefits and demands more. Our two ideological sides of Australia cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is our separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the continental landmass each taking the familiar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate view. Such as your group of agitators can keep Victoria, Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide and Australians will keep the rest. Yes, there has to be some sacrifices we will lose a lot of good Samba hunting country in East Gippsland and a few of the pinko/Green/ Antifas will have to move to Victoria but we have to do this as we cannot co-exist.
1.We don’t like your taxation system so you can keep it, we don’t need to exist on it or pay it.
2. You are welcome to the pinko/green judges, in the High Court and you can keep the Labour, Liberal, National Green Parties to yourselves.
3. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, our local Police, the Shooters Union, our Rifle Ranges, and the military.
4.We will take the nasty, power stations, the smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and electric cars.
5.You can keep the ABC, SBS and the Project and all those left wing newspapers for as long as you can pay for them.
6.We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, chemical companies, mining and farming.
7.You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, the dole for all, hippies, druggies, and illegal invaders.
8.We’ll keep the red necks, real motorcycle clubs, shooters, hunters and farmers.
9.We’ll keep the Queen and our Christian values. Rev Fred Nile, Andrew Bolt, Christian Schools, the Bible Belt, and give you all our Mosques, SBS and the ABC.
10.You can kiss and make up with, China, North Korea, Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
11.You can call yourselves “Little China” and have the BLM, peaceniks and war protests whenever you like.
12. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help protect them all.
13.You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Sarah Hanson Young. You can also have the UN but we will no longer pay the bills.
14. We’ll keep the large Four Wheel drives, Trucks, 4×4 Utes and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt, Tesla, and Leaf you can find.
15.You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
16.We’ll keep “Waltzing Matilda”, “God Save the Queen” and “Our National Anthem.”
17. We are sure you’ll be happy to substitute ” The Red Flag”,”Imagine,” “The Internationale”,”I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing,” “Kumbaya” or “We Are the World.”
18. You can keep the parasitical Banks, and Financial corporations to feed on your backs. We will protect our borders financed by 1 % tax on our exports, and pay a bounty of 10% on all exports financed by a 10% tariff on all imports. Only banks will pay a 1% transaction tax and only the Commonwealth Australian Bank will be able to produce credit on behalf of the Australian Government.
19. You can keep Covid19 and the next installment, we will shoot any border jumpers.
20. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our statutes – Captain Cook, Governor Philip, our name and our flag.

Do you agree with the above? If so, please share it everywhere to other Australians and the Left wing Pinko/Islamic/BLMs.
In the spirit of a friendly parting of our continent, you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years, before you chose which side of the border you want to live on.
Yours Sincerely,
Ron Owen
P.S. If we do this you won’t have to press 1 for English when you call anywhere in Australia.

There is no Spring without Winter, without Mistakes there is no Learning. There is no Life without Death, without Doubts there is no Faith. There is no Peace without War, without Fear there is no Courage. For without Mistakes, Doubts and Fears there are no pathways to Wisdom.
