    My wife caught me rubbing the stock of my William Douglas 407 against my cheek to see how smooth it was. I will never live that one down. Take to your gun room before you spend too much time with it.

    A sissy pad is recommended to get started with. Happy shooting.

    Congratulations.... your first double rifle... even more... in a real african caliber... that is the dream of many rifle lover´s....

    Sure you will enjoy it... try to do it as soon as you can organize it... that rifle deserves to visit Africa... in your hands. Obviously the logical option is a buffalo.. but you can consider also a much cheaper eland bull as an option to check your double. I hunted one eland bull recently with 404 Jeffery, open iron sights... and it was an awesome experience to arrive stalking to 60 metrers of the herd....

    Great rifle.... and great wife, if she suggested you such an adquisition.

    Hi Lori, This post is from last year and this is the rifle I took the elephant with in the Caprivi. I will never forget looking across the sights and watching that elephant collapse. What an experience and what a rifle. Now the only thing I am shooting has a string (practicing every day). With your help I hope to have a new story soon. Only 30 days to go.

    Sorry, guess I didn't catch the date there. I'll have to here the Jumbo story sometime - and I know you'll have some more great Africa memories soon!
