    Hello all,

    I'm new to the forum here, and just wanted to say hello. I'm from a small town in PA and have been a big bore enthusiast since I was a small boy. I happened to come across the site today while surfing the internet, and couldn't resist signing up. I look forward to talking with you all, and exchanging knowledge, as well as hunting and shooting stories!

    Hey guys, thank you very much for the warm welcome! Yeah I currently have a few big bores. I've got a Vintage Ruger M77RS chambered in 458 Win Mag sporting a Leupold VX-3 1.5-5, it was made in 1979...........a Ruger No. 1H Tropical Stainless chambered in 375H&H Mag sporting a Skinner peep sight...............a Ruger No. 1H Tropical Stainless chambered in 458 Lott sporting a Burris Signature Select 1.75-5 Safari Scope with Posi-Lock..............a Ruger M77 Hawkeye Alaskan Chambered in 375 Ruger...........open sights at the moment.................and a Weatherby Dangerous Game Rifle out of their custom shop chambered in 460 Weatherby Mag...........also open sights at the moment.

    I actually just posted the Vintage 458 and the 375H&H in the Classified section for sale.....................I am looking to sell them in order to finance a new custom project I am really anxious to get started.

    Hey welcome. You're going to love it in here.
    My wife and I are from Allentown & Easton PA.
    They're not small towns... but my wife grew up on a farm in Mt Bethel, PA which is truly a small town.

    Welcome to AH!

    I like your signature. It was and is used often while teaching my sons to shoot.
    However, it seems that based on your rifles that your bullets are larger than the point you aim at. I like it! :thumb:
