    Anyone else have a Problem with African Sporting Creations shooting sticks?

    I had a similar problem given mine were so tight i could not get them apart. I finally gave up and bought the vastly superior Blaser 2 sticks. Don’t misunderstand me no one has a better customer service department than them but I just did not want to mess with it

    Interesting. I shot mine in April in a perfect heart lung shot but he turned and kept coming with a second shot being a front brain shot that dropped him instantly

    No disrespect intended whatsoever. I was scammed on GB for a rifle like this. A real positive for you is your offer for using a third party broker between buyer and seller which speaks well of you. For anyone interested I absolutely would send payment to a third party, get the rifle for...

    Budget, Budget, Budget. A new Rigby Shakira starts at $38,000 with no customization except it will be built to you. Engraving extra. If you go with Heym much lower price but can be built to you. Also the element of time. I would estimate three years waiting time for your custom rifle. If none...

I personally saw and came close to closing the deal on my guesstimate was a 35 pound big body bull. The wind switched at las minute and I saw him running away...

    Ah…someone has been doing their homework on the Omay North. Yes there is a heavy piece of Jess they call both Jurassic Park and Vietnam. From what I read though I don’t think he got his tuskless in that particular patch of jess but I could be wrong. He would know

    2nd Call The Shot Elephant

    Blue is a larger target than spine shot. if you shoot in heart lung area he is still running a long way. the blue will break his leg stopping him for the final follow up shot and again it offers room for error versus a spine shot

    On my April hunt, My PH told me no one is more important on an elephant hunt than his trackers. After experiencing that I agree. I had done my own estimated tip from my many experiences. Only when I asked him did he ask me back what my total was…I only needed to make a very slight adjustment...

    You will get many different views and all are both valid and good. For myself on my many safaris I have always packed them already on my rifles with memory foam cut to fit them on my rifle with zero problems. Why risk a rookie airport person who might think you are trying to carry “military”...
