I stood in it and thought, c'mon...c'mon...let's travel in space and time, get me a couple of Companions and rock and roll...but, sigh, it was just the last dead phone both in Montana.
Anyway, after many requests, here's the work-in-process version of my Browning BLR "legal in ever jurisdiction" traveling rifle. It's in .223, comes with a 4-shot dreadfully expensive magazine, is just a hair under 7 pounds as it comes from the factory.
The custom fiberglass stock from MPI takes about a pound-and-a half off the laminate stock version. You'll note I had the ridiculously long LOP shortened, a recoil pad installed (not so much for the recoil as it "sticking" on the shoulder) and sling swivels installed. I have a Browning scout scope rail I will probably install, along with a 2.75 Burris scout scope, the same as the one on my Ruger GUNSITE Scout Rifle. If I go woth the scope, I'm going to try a set of Skinner sights as the BUIS. Sling will of course be a Rhodesian sling from Andy.
I hope to get this thing finished before SHOT, where I have a sinking suspicion I will see a production version! LOL!
Here's one for the books:
Thomaston Man Arrested After Stabbing Watermelon
A 49-year-old Connecticut man has been charged with threatening after his wife told police he stabbed and carved a watermelon in a passive-aggressive manner.
So this guy has been arrested, will probably lose his firearms rights and have his life turned upside down because he stabbed a watermelon in a "passive-aggressive manner." I'm personally not sure how to stab a watermelon in a passively aggressive manner. I once cut a watermelon in half with an old Mauser '98 bayonet, and heaven help me, I've shot numerous cantaloupes. I once carved a jack-o-latern, too...
This vid has been all over the Internet...would be really cool to "print" an ersatz 10/22 receiver.
