    I wanted to share this with everyone. Aaron Roberts of Roberts Precision was approached by Lone Survivor Foundation and asked if he would build them a theme rifle for auction at their banquet. They told him to go ahead and send an invoice to the foundation for the cost of the rifle. No invoice was sent.

    Aaron was able to get all of the components of this rifle donated, and donated his time and tooling as well. Before I show you the pictures, I would be remiss if I didnt mention the fine american companies that donated to this great cause.

    Stiller’s Precision Firearms
    Hart Rifle Barrels, Inc.
    McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, Inc.
    Huber Concepts
    Badger Ordnance
    Leupold Optics
    Dimensions by Holmes
    Grip Reductions
    Revolution Printing

    Here's what Aaron presented to the foundation.

    Here's how it shoots:

    And of course, I had to pose with it.

    All in all a beutiful rifle, for a great cause. Thanks Aaron and crew for supporting our troops.

    He's currently building two LRH rifles for me. Check him out at Roberts Precision Rifles - Aaron Roberts, Riflesmith

    Wow, she is a beauty.
    And just in case anyone has not read the book "Lone Survivor" , it is an absolute incredible read. When the firefight takes place, you won't be able to put it down.
    And you'll never bitch about a small ache or pain again........................
