    I went out Saturday and put another 30 rounds down the barrel of my new EDGE. All I can say is wow. We shot from 480 yards out to 1,000 yards and it did not matter whether it was me, or one of my two sons, who was behind the gun we hit what we aimed at. I even let a boy that looked to be about 13 years old who was there shooting with his dad shoot at 480 and 1,000 and he nailed both targets on his first attempt.

    Thanks Shawn for building me a great rifle!

    Mighty nice of you to let a fellow dad's son shoot your Edge. Hitting at 1000 yards by his son and your two sons will probably be a memory they will carry for a lifetime. Glad to hear it's a shooter and enjoy.

    Man I miss Mica Peak. I bet you can just toast that metal sheep cutout. I am going to step up to the edge shortly, glad to hear another favorable report on it.

    There were five small Chickens at about 890 yards. Since my last visit they have gone AWOL. Hehehe

    I will have to go out there early and stand them back up.
