    I've finally gotten around to making an account on here, I've been reading the forums on AH for the last few years. I've gotten a great deal of information and entertainment out of this website. Currently living in fairbanks Alaska, will be leaving for a few years then coming back up. No plans for a trip to Africa at the moment but someday i will make the trip for cape buffalo!

    Thanks! I noticed you are from NC, I'll actually be heading back to the fayetteville/grays creek area for a few years while the wife goes to college. Spent 4 years at bragg before i came up to alaska

    Nothing yet, but one or two members have at least pitched the idea. Maybe we can plan something for later in the year at a Friends of NRA event or some event at a Bass Pro or cabelas?

    I used a Kimber Talkeetna .375 H&H for the buff

    That'd be awesome, I'll have to keep an eye out for that. I won't be a permanent fixture in NC until the beginning of next year, but if I'm around id be down to go

    Welcome to the forum, you chose wisely picking this one! Is that a No. 1 you busted your Bruin with in your avatar? What’s she chambered in?
    Cheers,
    Cody

    There is a lot of No. 1 guys around here, including myself. That conversation will be a hoss! Any idea who you are going to have do it?
    You will enjoy your time here, damn good people on this site. We have a great get together/dinner at the DSC every year in January.

    Whats the dsc? And ive got a guy down in Pennsylvania that may be doing it, im still shopping around and looking at prices. I've had most smiths tell me they wont touch it because of the action work and the majority of the rest are asking quite a bit more than i want to spend at the moment
