Custom built usually turns out quite good to excellent. A good dog has been pre-qualified as "good". Therefore the woman is the wild card. LOL

(An old chestnut but someone had to say it)

Your 500 NE doesn't mind if you also have a couple of 30s, a .22 and a shotgun.
You can trade an old .44 for a new 22,
You can keep one Gun at home and have another for when you're on the road.
If a good friend tells you how much he likes your guns you can let him try it out a few times.
Your primary Gun doesn't mind if you keep another Gun for a backup.
Your Gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo.
A Gun functions normally every day of the month.
A Gun doesn't ask, 'Does this new scope make me look fat?'
A Gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep right after you use it.
YOU CAN BUY A SILENCER for a Gun

Well, each one of the choices, negates the other one. If you don't have a good gun, you better have a good dog to track your wounded game. Between the dog and the woman, lock them both in the trunk of your car for an hour and see which one is happiest to see you, when you return.....

I am one of the few to be blessed with a wonderful wife. She put the bug in my ear for our second trip to Africa by stating that I have to much empty wall space and need more mounts. :)

I've had many faithful dogs, but never a true custom build rifle. So, I'll have to go with a true custom build rifle. :)

If you put "good" in front of woman in the choice, it would be a much easier choice to make. :unsure:

Seriously though, a good woman can make life much better!

While it would be great to have a custom rifle, I have quite a few off the shelf rifles that are more than capable!
