Oh, funny story... You know the problem you had picking it up yesterday? Well I topped that big time this afternoon. I went to pick up a 338 edge I had shipped in to me. Got to the gun shop, went to cut the heavy ties holding the case together. Slipped with the knife and off to the ER we went. 4 internal stitches to pull my knuckle casing back together and 8 external stitches to close the gaping hole in my left hand.

Worst part is I still have not seen the rifle and have to go back and get it tomorrow.

Some days a guy just can't win..

OUCH!!!

This is one of those things folks read, but have a disconnect with the "real world" implications. What you simply put up 'on-line' has some serious blood and bandage reality.

I hope you're able to get back on track quickly.

Well, hopefully, it won't affect your trigger finger and I am sure that you sent the bill to 1600 Pennsylvania ave....................

Hope you heal soon.

Re: My new Long Range toy!

Nice looking setup! I'd be interested to hear what kind of velocities you get out of the 26" barrel?
