Australian Survival and Preppers..: How to join the fight to save your way of life

This applies to muzzle-loader gun owners too. Muzzle-loading guns as far as the government is concerned are the same as breach-loading guns, all are bundled in together. You can own an antique flintlock but are not allowed to shoot it. The government does not class ALL flintlocks as being the same! You can not own a replica flintlock pistol unless you have an "H" class license, & even then the only place you can shoot it is on a club range with club membership.



Our law makers are totally ignorant when it comes to firearms. We need to ALL pull together & fight this injustice.

Survival Prepper Forum



I am constantly looking for a decent Australian survival forum, so far no luck. The Australian survival forums I have found so far are no better than the American ones. America is different from Australia in many ways, so the discussions on those forums are not of much use if you live in Australia or the UK. Australian forums have other problems, the forum managers & moderators are slack & do not control the forum members when they get out of line. The other factor with Australian forums is that they often look at someone's post, but do not comment. It does not take much to comment, preferably a nice comment. Fair enough if you think the post is totally pointless, just say nothing or politely point out where you think they are wrong. But to say nothing when in fact it was a good post is not very encouraging for the person who made the post.

Anyway, not commenting can be a problem on all forums, but some forums are better than others. I decided to register on two forums, one is an American forum on which I am a moderator, & the other is a UK forum on which I am a forum manager https://www.preppersforum.uk/  I find that on this UK forum we have more in common than any American one. For the most part members are friendly & the managers & moderators do a good job of keeping spammers out & controlling disagreeable people.

Anyway, if you are in Australia or America or the UK & are looking for a decent survival prepper forum, come & check this one out. Frankly I could do with a few more Aussies on this forum!

Regards, Keith.
