    Hey Joe K.

    Give me a call when you get a chance. Ardie J.
  2. I have used Only Gold in Phoenix they were really good to deal with. Over the internet they require a minimum of 10 oz. of gold for an order or 300 oz. silver with free shipping. Or. they have a store front you can go to in Phoenix and buy just 1 or 2 oz. if you want to. Check em' out. Ardie

    Leaving for Oz Tomorrow

    Howdy Chris, Tell Bob and your Dad I said hello! Stop by at the pub in Dunolly, the old hotel, those people are great. I still don't remember how I got back to the caravan park after I left there. I do remember the owner thanked me for coming in, she said I added a lot of color to the place (I think that's good?). Anyway, have a blast and don't dolly those specey's! Ardie
  4. Any of you guys know of a dealership with one of these new Polaris RZR's sitting on the showroom floor for sale. Arizona or New Mexico would be ok. Down here around the river they have a waiting list a mile long. Ardie

    Howdy, Joe's correct about the safety equipment and now the DMV doesn't even verify that the equipment is installed, they make you sign it's on the vehicle. In the old days they use to carefully inspect your atv before issuing a plate, Not anymore. The amount charged to register the atv depends on the bluebook value of the quad being registered. I just registered a new '06, they didn't care what I paid for it, they went to the book and charged me by MSRP. Soooo, the more it's worth the more you get to support the government and it goes down as your quad gets older. That being said, regardless of what we have to pay it's great to be able to ride on the streets to get to a riding spot without having to hide. Note: Other states won't honor you Arizona street legal status unless they have the same law. Happy Riding, Goldfinger
  7. Howdy Guys, That's interesting information, thanks. I had heard if you belonged to a gun club and shot a certain amount of rounds a month you could own a gun but I didn't know the rest of that. One gentlemen I met in Dunolly was real bitter about having to turn in a few guns his grandfather had left him when he passed. Evidently they didn't fit into the criteria you had mentioned but I didn't know the details at the time I talked to him. Over here if you shoot somebody in self defense you better be able to prove your life was threatened. Also, if you can prove it and no charges are filed against you the crook can still take you to civil court and sue you for big money and very possibly win. Soooo, I guess your alive but now you can't afford to live. You just can't win! You guys enjoy your cool weather over there in Australia, I hope to be able to come back over there again some time, it's beautiful! Thanks for the information, I'm always willing to learn! Goldfinger
  8. Mr. Down Your Throat, When I was in Australia we had several heated conversations around the campfire about gun control. I paid close attention to what was being said, it appeared to be about a 60% for guncontrol and 40% against gun control. They were great converations and some of them a little heated. The one thing I remember the most is one of the stongest opinionated anti-gunners telling me the only thing he had against American's is we waited so long to help Australia during World War 2. Us crazy Americans with our rights and freedoms and yes guns, will always be there to defend other countries in need. But while our young men and women are away from home defending other countries we will always be able to defend ourselves and country if needed and not depend on the government or anyone else! We love you Aussies and we love our rights and freedoms as Americans that we are able to exercise here! Please respect that! I apologize to anyone this forum this offends. The first time I saw something like this on here I had to tie my hands to keep from replying. This time I couldn't help myself. Ardie

    Howdy Rubicon, Just make sure the handgun is in plain sight, like holstered on your hip and not partially covered by your shirt or jacket. If you want to hide it, to be legal you have to possess a concealed weapon permit. Watch out for game refuges, I don't think it is legal there to carry a weapon unless you have a valid hunting license. Maybe one of the other guys can touch on that. That being said, have fun! Goldfinger
  10. Howdy, I'm new to hunting and am considering buying a new rifle, I want something that can be used for antelope and deer. I was considering a 300 WSM. I thought it might be a good idea to check with you guys and get your recommedations before I bought. What do you think? Thanks for your help! Ardie

    Hey Joe!

    Hi Joe, I am considering putting in again for Arizona elk and was wondering if you would be interested in doing the guide thing. Here is my e-mail address would you e-mail me your phone number and I'll give you a call to talk about it. apjones@tds.net Ardie

    Australia ???

    Howdy, I have been on one of Doug's trips also and would strongly reccommend him. He seems to have a knack for parking right on top of the gold. He'll pick you up at the airport and drop you off when you're done. That way you don't have to try to learn to drive on the wrong side of the road. His crew cooks the food and does the dishes so all you need to worry about is yourself and your prospecting equipment. I can't say enough good about him and his crew! Ardie Jones
