Re: My new 284 THOR

WOW!!! That is one nice looking rifle. I hope all the blood, sweat and $ pays off. What a great moniker "Thor" (so much more 'interesting' than JAZZ).

I take offense to that.
By the way, nice looking rifle, Robert.

Re: My new 284 THOR

Sorry there, no offense intended.

I'm just not connecting with the significance of your moniker "JAZZ". It (for my simple mind) doesn't imbue the idea of shock and awe as does the moniker "Thor". I do understand the significance of "Thor" and the imputed idea of his mythical hammer.

When it comes to Jazz, more people have been moved by its music than a mythical character swinging a big hammer. All that aside, I like both names. Either one works for me! (cool Jazzzzz!)

No
No offense taken, jmden. I should have put a smiley face with my post, as I was just ribbin you.
The Jazz was named after my chocolate female retriever who is one of the best in the nation.
She is all speed, and all business, like the caliber 300 JAZZ.
Pinehurst's ALL THAT JAZZ is her call name.
