Hi all, I've been pretty active over at specialtypistols and savageshooters. My name is Larry Gates, my specialty is Striker pistols, although I am pretty keen on my Savage Tactical in 308 also. A few of you know me and my affliction with Striker stocks. I have designed and made a few, made the prototypes for Joel Russo to market a line of Striker mid grip stocks, from full thumbhole to target (read HS2000 style) to conventional, and I prefer nice wood. Thought I would peruse your fine blog here, and I hope, get back into hunting. Don't have a lot of time, but occassional weekends free. I really want to introduce a few chucks to my 243 striker. Keep shooting, and I hope to particiapte as I can. Larry in Dallas Its hot outside.
