Alright now for the truth
My buddy (like a lot of people I'm sure) saw the TV show and was sold on this setup. I told him about this site I like to look at now and then (LRH.com) and told him I would make a post. He's read everyone's response and still just wants one of these. I gave him my piece, which like most other people is that it's a great setup but overpriced. I guess when you got your mind set on something there's no stopping... I'm definitely not too disturbed by it though because I'll get to shoot it now and then. I'll be sure and report how he likes it and how I like it once that day comes around. There've been some good comments on here though and I'm glad about that. I'm saving up to buy myself my first long range setup for a special day coming up in a couple years (EAS from the Marine Corps
) so it's nice to hear about building custom rifles. I've got the "science" to taking long range shots down pretty well but I don't know the first thing about how to customize a rifle and the quality of every different producer out there.
Now that I made an account and everything I'm sure I'll make some comments here and there, but I wont have much to contribute to the site for the next couple years until I'm able to get back into the swing of hunting and shooting full time again. Thanks again.
