    Many on here know of Joel Russo and the type of stocks he puts out. I thought you all would like to see his newest creation for me. All I can say is I am speechless with the way this turned out.

    For those that do not know Joel, His stocks are top notch. He was the one that started the Tactical Laminate stocks for the budget minded shooters. Many have tried to replicate what he has done, but none have duplicated it! His customer service is tops, a true craftsman. Since others have flooded the Laminate market he has turned his attention to producing show stoppers!

    I am not a safe queen type of guy and if it is not going to be used then it has no place in my safe. This is my actual Tactical long-range competition gun. Here is a picture to prove it. I just shot it in a match up in Kettle Falls over the weekend and I think there are more than a couple people that think I may be crazy, but life is too short to shot ugly guns. I am just glad I did not drop it out of the Helicopter!

    Clearly you are mishandling this rifle. So you should send it to me in order to keep it safe ;)

    That stock (I suspect) is like a sports car. If you have to know what it costs, you can't afford it.

    Flip, your post made me laugh.... a masterpiece is rarely found at a bargain, then again, how does one define a "bargain":D



    OP, I actually applaud your selection, I have driven more than one 'smith to high blood pressure meds with a very similiar out look on rifles: "If someone else has it, I don't want it." Great taste on the stock, but I didn't catch what type of wood that is?

    Thanks for showing it off, very nice.

    The general definition of a bargain would be....

    A bargain is a a bargain to the person who's buying it if they think they got a good brice. Now, a person on public assistance would never think (I assume) that most of the stuff on this site is a bargain but to those who have the wherewithall, everything is a bargain.....:D

    Bargains, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder......

    It is a very nice stock. Wood stocks, as a rule, are kind of alien to me.
