    thanks for the picture I sure do like that thing. that is not a real bad price. I hope that you still have some of those videos left I sent you or some body some money. From the way everybody talks they must be real good.

    Wayne McD has one and brought it down last weekend. We didn't get to shoot from it, the wind was just too much. We finally gave up trying to make hits at 1,000 yards and settled for being fairly consistent at 800 yards. The wind was running 30-40+ mph and switching back and forth from 10 O'clock to 1:30 faster than you could work the bolt.

    They are sharp! I'm going to have to get me one of them. Actually, I need to start buying some lottery tickets, OT isn't covering all of the costs of the "Gotta Haves" I keep finding on this site.
