    Good work Dave, one less 416 Taylor that can fall into evil hands!

    Around my neck of the woods, that's called "flinging a craving" on someone.

    2 years ago the biggest caliber rifle I ever thought I needed was a 300 WM..

    This place taught me the error of my ways.. and within just a few weeks I was seeking out a nice 375 H&H to add to the collection...

    I swore after I purchased that rifle that it would be the only "big" bore I would ever need.. Im a pretty practical person.. I couldnt see me buying (or, in this case.. building) anything bigger.. I mean.. what exactly do I need anything bigger than a 375 H&H for????? I dont live in Alaska.. and on the infrequent occasion I find myself wanting to shoot a brown bear, cape buffalo, or one of those horrible TX ground squirrels.. I've got the 375....

    Then along comes @AZDAVE ....

    Sigh.....

    This is all his fault....

    :D

    No reason to curse Dave, but he was the source of my interest and eventual purchase of a Simson & Co Suhl .405 double rifle.
    No regrets.
    Keep up the good work Dave!

    Thank you kind sir @mdwest those are the kindest words of complement you can provide to these ears:A Smoke:

    At some point I will convince you that two barrels are better than just one. Like say a nice Christmas present for your wife:A Outta:

    Also just remember that one man's bad influence is another's enabler!

    @mdwest
    Well how kind you will be receiving a double from your wife to match the one you are giving her such a nice set of presents. Might I sugest a nice 9.3x74 for your wife and have her get you a 470NE. If you make it to AZ I can let you shoot a couple to help with your decisions.
