Blaser makes a fine rifle but there is something wrong here if a guy puts that kind of money down and can't be found. He may have had an accident an/or be seriously ill.
What else has the store owner done to try and find the guy? Did he fill out a 4473 when he gave the deposit.
they have did all that
the store owners have tried many times to call this person and even sent a letter to the guy home here in the town in texas and have went over to the guy house a couple of times ..
left notes for him to call the shop to pick up the rifle for it was in
it like the guy just fell off the face of the earth here in the town
i went by the address that the guy has on the form and left my card on the door of the house to call me
the people next door told me that the guy has not been home in over 60 days now and no one has seen him or heard from him..
the house looks like it was just packed up and left there for the bank to come and get it
the house was a mess it looked like some one just came though and got the cloths and left the rest of the things there..
i tried his phone number and got a voice mail recording set up
i ran his name though the system and nothing comes up or hits on it
i have it at the house sitting on kitchen table right now and i told the store owners that if does not come to store by friday afternoon at 12.noon iam keeping it no matter what happens after that
i have not yet shoot it to zero the sights and the scope set up yet so iam waiting intill friday..
then sat morning off to the range to see what it can do
the only thing i could think it was about two months ago there was a big raid on local meth makers and dealers here in our little part of texas and a lot people got away from it and are on the run right now.
the gunstore is two towns over from me and the guy lives in the town where the gunstore is at ..
so not that hard to swing by and tell someone that the rifle is in the town
for the town is only about 2600 people total in the town ..
so a stop on the way home and a knock on the door of the house and hey your rifle is in ..
that what they did from me when my howa came into the shope that day
so not that hard for the store owners to tell you or to see you around the town at the bank or in local wally world that your rifle is in
i see them two at the local wally world all the time here in own small part of texas
it siting on my kitchen table as i write this post ,,
i have all the photo copys of the paperwork that the gunstore has sent the guy to the address that he has given
on the form and plus have made notes about going over the house to see if the guys was home
my bud deano thinks that the guy is not comeing back to area so why not have something that is nice for a change,..
it a Schmidt&bender-2.5.x-10.x-56.mm variable power scope with a set of qiuck on off typle scope mounts set up
iam also picking up a aimpoint -red-dot-x-fixed 2.x-power scope for close range bush typle hunting with same typle of mounts for the rifle..
from what i read so far of the book that came with the rifle ..
you can not shoot slugs out of the shotgun barrel it has a set of interchangle typle chokes for diff game birds set up..
i want to try on turkey and a dove and pheasnet typle birds to see if works on them ,..
i know that the rifle will bring down diff sized game with the right bullet typle
you can get a set of german houge style rubber forend and stock set up for the rifle to change out the wood to keep the wood in better shape for the future as need
so tell me what typle of game birds do you have in the southern part of alaska
i know there water fowel typle of hunting there but is there is any typle of game birds other than water fowel
