Quickie on Barrett .338

Put a magazine through Barrett's much anticipated .338 Lapua bolt gun, and it rocked...couple of high points before I head to the airport:
• Modular design based on an aluminum frame that composes the mag well, lower receiver and stock assembly.
• Approximately 11 pound weight (we were shooting factory prototypes, so it's not final)
• Impressive Barrett-designed muzzle brake and straight line stock help throttle felt recoil
• Future options for caliber changes
• Full length top rail to accomodate night vision
• Super easy disassembly
Figure SHOT 2009 intro...agotta go to airport!

I stopped by the range after work yesterday and saw you there with the Barrett crew. Wondered what you guys were filming.

Wanted to stop and shake your hand, but didn't want to interrupt the filming. Hope you had a good visit to Tennessee.

Price not yet set, but looks like $4K, not irrational for a tactical rifle...
