I have debated for a while the need for a .500 caliber pistol since the .480 Ruger did everything I needed. Well I sold the .480 so a .500 was back in play but was it going to be a JRH or Linebaugh? A David Clements built Ruger Bisley in .500 Linebaugh came up on Gunbroker so I bid on it. While I was waiting for it to end a friend on another forum offered to sell me one of his .500s if I didn’t win the auction. Well before it ended I told him I wanted to buy one of the two he offered since it was a Bisley Vaquero built by Linebaugh. I ended up winning the auction too! I picked up the Clements gun and the Linebaugh will be here next week! I figure I could take one of the .500s and the FA .454 to Africa and have it covered up through the really big stuff

G'day, Von Gruff; Could you give me an idea on your Bearded Chef Knife, as per your posted photos, delivered to Australia? I'd like to reward a good mate (excellent amateur chef) who has done me big favours in the past. Cheers, Geoff Rath

I just received a forwarded e-mail from you, concerning our Web Site. We just finished a leopard hunt yesterday. While on the hunt my wife mentioned to me that she had finally had it with the person that was maintaining the site and that she was going to get someone else to maintain the site.

If the site is not active you can contact me thru the AH forum.

Cheers, Lon Denney
