    Default Those darn Luxus guys...

    ...sent me a catalog in the mail today. I have never seen more gorgeous wood on a rifle.

    What a trim and well put together single shot.

    Now I can't quit drooling.

    Beautiful gun! Frankly tho, I think the scope kind of ruins the aesthetics. Just my personal taste, but I've never had any use for gold rings, red bands, or other bits of cheap plastic applied unnecessarily to my scopes (or anything else for that matter). I guess Tupperware bling just isn't my thing. But man have they got some beautiful wood!

    Great for ogling and fondling. Totally unsuited for taking in the field for real hunting, especially in Alaska.
    When I took my Weatherby out in the filed a few weeks ago it rained nearly every day. It chafed against my pack board. It got laid on the tundra while I glassed. Though I oiled and protected as best I could, I ended up with scratches and abrasions on my baby. That's OK, goes with the territory. I would never take a rifle like that out to hunt with. In fact, I'm thinking about buying a Ruger American just to beat up without feeling guilty.

    I totally know the feeling....I bought this gorgeous .270 Express a couple months ago and won't hardly take it out of the house for fear of dorking it up, maybe take it out this winter when it's dry. A Luxus? Maybe if I was hunting dry land in Texas I'd have one. I've hunted a couple of walnut stocked guns up here and the guilt can really build up quick.

    I've got a couple of hard core "ugly guns" for AK hunting but man...after looking at that are they ever ugly.

    Looks like a "Hoyty-Toyty" Ruger #1. About the first slide down a shale chute and much of the beauty would rub off. I'm afraid one would turn into a safe queen around my place; due to the price. Nice looking rifle !
