    Nice lookin' truck and rifle! I like how your avatar keeps changing. I'm waiting for you to add a .577 T-Rex to the right of the .416!

    Hey, was that not a cool video of some guys shooting the .577 T-Rex?? I never laughed so hard as when I saw that video. For anyone who has not seen it here is a link. Enjoy, I sure did!

    That's a nice portable deer stand you got there. Makes me think about the picture of Elmer Keith shooting a 50 BMG bolt action off the roof of a car. Page 270 of Hell I Was There. Remember, off the roof with a muzzle brake, not off the hood.

    Can you imagine the burn stain that this baby would put on my truck if I were to use it as a rest????

    I think you can get something to prevent that at a county fair.

    I was referring to the guys that sell the car finish that protects from EVERYTHING and they use the trick of using a low temp flammable to show that it even protects against fire for a couple of seconds anyway.

    Okay, I see, but I don't think that will protect the truck surface against scoring powder residue being blown out across the paint like a blow torch.

    Default Ya mean.....?

    Scorched spots, and a LOT of them on the hood, roof fenders and tailgate of a pickup aren't standard equipment? Empty .22 shells between the dashboard and windshield, and rattling around in the defroster ducts? That ONE .30-06 round that ended up jamming the heater fan when I unloaded the rifle in a hurry and threw the rounds on the dash? Feathers, fur and a bit of blood under the seat? How 'bout that can of worms that I forgot behind the seat in June and found in August?
    And I thought that EVERY pickup on the planet has to have enough windshield bashing rocks stored in the frame rails and fenders to take out rush hour traffic for 30 miles!

    Nice rifle!
