    Dang gone that's a beautiful gun!!!

    It's been a long time since I have seen a stock that looked that good!

    You should be very proud of that!

    Joel, Beautiful stock and finish. In the middle picture the stock looks like it has an offset. If it does it would be the first rifle I have seen with one. My Barretta competition shotgun has it.

    I grew up with a massive black walnut tree rubbing the garage roof...often thought someone should have cut some of that tree into gun stocks....beautiful.....
    Awaken one night by noise outside my window....a raccoon had climbed to the roof and was eating walnuts....smashing them between his little hands....that coon must have been 80#....i closed the curtain and went back to bed.....
