We see out another year with a variety of articles to keep you entertained through the festive break. Among a host of products under review are the latest S100 Stainless XT rifle from Sauer which is available in seven calibres, the Victory RT25 Sporting shotgun from Turkey, the new Thrive HD 10x42mm binoculars by ZeroTech, Precision Rifle ammunition from Sellier & Bellot and the remarkable new BackTrack Mini GPS by Bushnell. Elsewhere John Maxwell, our man in Canberra, takes a look at the new firearms of choice by the Australian Defence Force, Matthew Godson wraps up his two-part look at starting out with thermal optics and senior correspondent Rod Pascoe pays tribute to Aussie shooting pioneer Mike Papps who has died at the age of 90. And on another sad note, John Dunn has decided to call time on his hugely popular Jumbunna column after 34 years. And with that we says thanks for joining us in 2022, merry Christmas and a happy new year to all our members, readers and advertisers.
