    I love thumbhole stocks - but they do tend to be ''handed'' - at least ones I had used were.

    I'd pretty much like to chop in my old original Mini for one of those - I am sure accuracy will have been way improved. Still like the basic platform.

    I could be wrong (won't be the 1st time), but I'm pretty sure the show said it was good for you wrong- errrrrrr I mean you left-handed shooters.
    Plans? Why make plans when you can do things haphazardly?

    SIXTO, Bass Pro has one (or they did yesterday) if you want to go handle one. Theirs had a normal stock on it though, although it was still in that goofy finish. So, the thumbhole stock is not required and you could just get a normal stock which people of the left handed variety could use.

    I like my Ranch Rifle I have, and I am interested in one of these, but can't justify one right now. That sliding thingy on the barrel is kind of interesting.

    Guns and Ammo also had a write up on it a few months back.

    I know, I was just planting the seed of a Cabella's trip
    Gander is right around the corner, well sort of around the corner of where I grew up, that was a happy day in my life when that store opened.

    I was just looking at the Ruger bible, it has both the thumbhole and a hogue overmold stock... if the thumb hole deal doesnt float your boat, the Hogue will work for a lefty.
