    Finished my Long range rifle.

    Just got done with my 1000 yard rifle and just in time for a match sunday. I have never been to a match like this one so I am a little excited, but the hardest thing to decide is which CC gun to carry??? Good ole glock or a nice 1911 since these places are all about shinny and nice???

    Nice, but with a stock like that, you need to carry something! Just kidding, all that matters is where the holes appear. Good luck in the match!

    If it's CC, nobody is gonna know what you have anyway. Now if you're sportin' an OC, it definately has to be a shiny top-shelf 1911 in your best BBQ holster.

    I'm just assuming you have a matching Spandex Onesey since the match is all about shiney, you would be stunning,A nice SS 1911 with matching Grip panels would definitely get the other shooters talking.LOL
    Seriously good luck,and if you can OC nothing says it better than a cocked and locked 1911 in matching holster mag belt combo

    Flashy! I have SMOKE ON THE WATER in my head whilst looking at it.

    I'd carry whatever you have the nicest holster for, or what you just feel great in that day.

    I would be scared that would fall of that old bar stool.

    Great looking rifle. Hopefully you have a special spot for it. Wouldn't want the other rifles knocking it around in the safe. Dings and Scratches on that finish would cause me great frustration.

    Yeah, what caliber is it? Or is that a given, due to the competition you will be using it in?
    Or did you only want comments on the rifle's looks, lol.

    Ditto from me as well! Give us all the info about the rifle: Who made what components--action, barrel, stock, trigger, what caliber, bullet and load data, etc.? I like "pretty", but I also like "function".

    Thanks all,
    The rifle is a savage F class 6.5X284 I stripped it apart and had the action trued and steel bedded and all polished out. the barrel is a bit of a secert 30" tube 1-8 twist with a stock savage looking crown. the Scope is a Burris BlackDiamond 8-32 30MM tube.

    I will be sporting a shinny 1911's probably OC with a leather holster.
