Re: Sacrifice For Quality or The Case For Custom
Thanks for the nice write up Les, I ain't no where near that for consistency as most of all my shooting at game here in Western Canada is about 40 to 140 ish yards,,, "archery trained me well."
As for paper and silhouette shooting I enjoy the free hand stuff out too 500 yards max now days. I too am ageing as I scale back in rifles but not optics as they always will be on the ready when needed.
I have a few rifles that go into the hand me down category then thin out the rest as I keep my 22, a 30/06, and a old 12 gauge shot gun.
I like less is more since it gives me more time too plink with one rifle. We get to learn it like a well worn set of boots, and it becomes a good friend that we can rely on.
We learn after a few shoots how much trigger is needed, exactly where to rest our heads and where our hands best fit the stock in many positions.
The rifle sling is one we liked on the other rifle as it found a new home on the pride and joy we like best, same for the old Harrison byepoles.
Yuppers, simple custom made too fit our needs is for those that truly like a rifle that fits our needs.
