    There is a brand new rifle for sale over on BENCHREST CENTRAL. It is exactly the same type of rifle that all of the discussion was about some months back. Sounds like a real good deal.

    With me being a certified and licensed treehugger, I am so relieved that the prairie dogs will not become extinct in the next week from the massive slaughter that would have ensued from such a highly accurate and deadly rifle.

    Reminds me of the 6BR that Clay Spencer built for him-Never fired and no animals killed.

    WOW!!!

    Like to hear the logic behind this decision, course its happened before, I know personally, at least he took possession of the rifle and paid Richard.

    Come on Wildcat, whats the deal? Didn't perform as expected?

    Maybe BountyHunter will buy it. :D

    It's a mystery, but the classified add neglects to mention +4000 fps capability. A true single shot rifle. One shot and you need a new rifle. :eek:

    I wish I could say I am surprised to see that ad but I totally expected it. HOW MANY TIMES DID I SAY THIS RIFLE WAS A FAIRY TALE AND IT WOULD NEVER BE OWNED, SHOT, OR IN HIS POSSESSION!??!

    I feel sorry for the poor guy. He belongs in a straight jacket at Shady Acres. Maybe that is the problem......he can't pass a background check or something. That would explain why all the guns he's ever thought about never get transferred from the 'smith to him. I don't know, just a hunch.

    BTW, for those of you who missed it, he told us he was done here and wouldn't be back.

    "Done and won't be back" , man that sucks and you guys should be ashamed of your selves for picking on him.:D

    Anyway what was the straw that broke the camels back , another new project that he was getting ragged about?

    I have to say that the guy had good taste in his gun parts , seems like hes had around 20 grand worth.

    I have a good taste in gun parts too, but I keep from ordering more than I can handle.

    AKA I stick to hillbilly gunsmithing projects like an H&R 45-120 for $300+reamer.
