    I admittedly totally ignorant as to walnut grade and selection. Could you point in the direction of a quality resource on those options?

    Thanks, Bruce. I’ve been eyeing up that Winchester. I have developed no opionion on the Boddington issue- I’m just interested in that rifle but not paying attention to the man at all.

    I’m really only after a .375 H&H. Sometimes the internal maniacal co-pilot starts to veer into 505 Gibbs territory... But mostly I’m trying to be realistic.

    If you take a peek at the stock on the CB rifle- those lines appeal to me. Not sure how to describe it- but that’s been a long standing pursuit.

    I got the privilege of owning this Kudu for a while until @tarbe finally realized that he had sold a rifle that he never should have sold. I also hunted it in the Limpopo and had great success with it. Never once thought I was pimping anyone’s name but I was proud of the rifle and where it came from. I have been accused of being a billboard for McCallen a time or two, we all have our price! Lol

    3 on the tree is slang for a steering column shifter. Harks back to the 1950s.

    Amen, Brother. Nothing has or ever will beat the sound of 26 inch glass packs behind a blown Hemi.

    Damn, you described my 79 CJ-5 to the bones. Except you left out the 8 track player screaming the Doobie Brothers or Waylon Jennings as an empty quart bottle of beer was winged out the side and smashed the deer crossing sign. Ahhhh, them were the days.

    Yeah man..... she was a beast. I didn’t have an 8 track.... I was cassette, blaring Eagles. But slinging quarts of Miller was definitely common practice. Good times, different times.... for better or worse.

    Yeesh! You guys make me feel ancient. All we had was AM radio when we could find a spot where it worked. I learned in a worn out 1933 Chevy with 3 on the floor. No synchro. We had to double clutch. FM and 8 tracks came---later. Narragansett beer bottles out the window and over the roof, Oh, yeah.

    Well said Hank. The Boddington bashing gets a little old in my view. Some seem to have real issues with him, real or imagined. I know about the financial issues, but doubt many if any here had a personal connection to it. As to NOT hunting someplace he recommended etc,, that's just dumb. As I said elsewhere, like him or not, he has more worldwide hunting experience than probably anyone here. I have met the guy twice at the SHOT show, and he was very friendly and I have also emailed back and forth with him several times and he has always been helpful to me.

    Is he perfect? No. Is anyone here perfect and never made mistakes or misjudgments in their life?

    Some seem very judgmental. We should all look in the mirror and see if the guy looking back is perfect.

    If you like it and it is what you are looking for get it regardless of it having a name on it.....even if it does can't imagine it being big .....trigger and action can be sorted if they not to your liking. ....but unlike what everyone assumes not every cz has these issues........also after the 375 the 505 is a very logical choice to pair it with.....so better start looking for one asap. ...:D

    A Glass Pack is a type of muffler that offered less back pressure and more rumble than a standard muffler.

    And sounds particularly awesome with Steppenwolf Born to Be Wild, blasting in the background.
