Boyd, I just returned one I got from him. No problems with the actual stock, I liked it. But, I asked for one with the red/yellow flame, kind of like the one on Bill Shehane's site. When I got it, it was just to bright yellow and red, so i shipped it back and told him that I am going to try to find one in the darker colors and take a digital photo, them e-mail it to him, and see if he can produce those colors. As long as it is going to be on the bench at a match,.......might as well stand out!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

His design is nice, especially around the rear of the action where it is inletted for your thumb and angle of your hand. The front area seemed to me to be a great tracking surface also.

JustC

I get over that way once in a while but never for a trip to the beach. When I was in the Navy I had an arrangement with the sharks, I stay out of the water and they stay off dry land. It's been a LOT of years and we're still holding to our agreement(s). I came to this decision during a swim call we had in the Tongue Of The Ocean (I believe). We had been swimming for about 15 minutes when the sharks appeared, we went up the side of that submarine two and three at a time on a one person ladder. I also spent some time in Diego Garcia and there are BIG sharks there, BIG Manta Ray too!

if you want a hunting rifle/stock but like the flat bottom for benchrest shooting try the hart accuracy rest. it is a device that attaches to the forend using the swivel or forend screw. has a wide flat bottom like the benchrest stocks.
