    I am seriously considering that very option. Since I have no one on my back saying NO, I can do that. I have a MRC 30-06 coming later this month which will keep my 375 company. With a MRC 404J African and the 06 that will be a perfect battery for my next safari. Plus, look at the investment perspective. I just hope my adoration of big(ger) bores doesn't bite me too hard.

    You’re in trouble. I suggest a Balvennie on ice and a slow draw on a Rocky Patel before proceeding.

    I got the American Legends at the SCI show in Reno. I had no intention of buying another rifle but when I looked at it and handled it I was a goner. After all, I don't have an 06 and Ron gave me such a good deal on it I couldn't refuse. A good discount plus A grade Turkish walnut. I mentioned I am going to Africa in April and he told Tom to make damn sure I had my rifle no later than 15 March. I anxiously wait and count the days.

    Before I bought mine, I was looking at a 9.3 x 62 lefty on the rack. While we were doing the paperwork Craig Boddington came and Ron gave him that rifle. It was a special order for Craig and it is a beaut. So I got to play with Craig Boddington's special order rifle.

    I have an ALR in 300 H&H and sold several in 375 H&H. They are a sweet rifle! Hope you love it Boomer!

    Committed to buy an AHR #3 450 Dakota today.

    Brass is on the way.

    Need to get serious about some dies.

    Have several thousand bullets and two lifetime supplies of powder and primers.

    Oh, and still married! Compromise is not a dirty word, when it comes to your wife!

    She was nervous about the Dakota, but ok'd the AHR....so away we go.

    Now I have a totally redundant RSM in 458 Lott.

    It's a fine sickness...

    You do know that Whatsuuup is part of a Communist plot to enslave the world, right??

    It works on the same principle as baiting pigs with corn.

    And to think...I spent 4 of the best years of my life trying to protect you from the Commies and now you are inviting them into your home!

    If you are a Bernie supporter, maybe it's time to redistribute some of those rifles to the less fortunate like myself! You filthy 1%er!

    I had to google "momo".

    I have no idea what the heck that was all about.

    But yeah...if staying off Whatsuuup keeps the momo away, I guess that is good!

    I thought Momo made wheels for cars.... ;)
