    I just got my 1000 yard Varmint Shillouette finished. It's a Lawton 7500 action with a Krieger barrel that I had had my gun smith Jim Woodside build. Gun shoots and tracks flawlessly I had it out this morning and even though it was 8 degree's I was happy with it.
    I got the stock from ( Jesse) jghoghunter it's a high grade walnut and man does it look good!!!! He got me the stock in good time and I am very happy with how it turned out after it was completely finished. I like the fiberglass and laminantes, but you just don't see wood that often any more so thats what I went with. If I could figure out how to shrink pictures down far enough I would post up some pictures of the finished product. Thanks again to Jessie for helping me get this gun finished in time.

    That's a fine looking gun, you've got some great parts on it and it no doubt will be a great shooter. Your right about the wood stock, it looks great. What caliber is it.

    Very nice. I hope she's a shooter. I remember while living in Wyoming we used to take portable heaters to keep our hands warm. Cold but, it was still fun!

    Thats a great caliber and I have not doubts about that gun doing you a great job for what you are wanting to do with it. If you see a faint green glow in the sky to the west, that would be me turning green with envy.:D
