    What's got you switching from team Southpaw??

    I like your taste in ammo, reasonably priced and really efficient.

    Im left handed but Im right eye dominant. As I get older I cant hokd focus as long in my left eye especially after a day glassing so Im making the switch. Its ridiculously hard.

    I'm the exact opposite of you, right handed/left eye dominant. I made the switch to shooting left hand at 12, I've always tried to practice some shooting right hand ever since just to maintain familiarity. I totally understand your struggle man!

    So Im Back from my hunting trip, heres some pics, best stag was a strong 8 pointer, bonus points if you spot him. Stalked in to 180 yards and watched him for nearly 2 hours.

    I saw 4 other stags on this trip but alas nothing good enough to hang on the wall.

    I had to pull the pin and head home early due to weather. The first night was terrible and didnt want a repeat.

    I tested a few bits of new gear this trip,
    The Exped Down Mat is a game changer, so comfy.

    The Sig Kilo 2000 is good, super fast and very easy to use.

    Lastly Is the Seiko SRP777, really comfy and easy to read, a nice upgrade over the SKX007

    @shaneadams90 I just need a HPG chest rig and that group buy 6 and my life will be complete haha

    @shaneadams90 blashemy! its a Kimber! haha,

    The Can is a DPT modular overbarell, ultralight weight and the baffles can be made from alloy or stainless depending on the application. I have stainless on my AR. They are great and work really well. You can add or remove baffles as desired.

    My apologies!! I looked at the bolt knob and immediately thought it was a r700.

    I fielded a Kimber 84m Hunter this year in 6.5Creedmoor. Fine guns for sure.

    I really like that Suppressor...I prefer to keep things quiet as well!

    Over here suppressors are considered a courtesy and no restrictions at all so we have great manufacturers providing awesome products for every application

    I love my Kimber Montana! great gun although a bit of a learning curve shooting such a light gun.

    You have great calibre taste good Sir!

    @Stewart the 6.5 is new to me this year....I've shot .308 for a LONG time and am very familiar with the round and ballistics.....

    I'd been searching for a round to take on a hunt out West should I get the opportunity and was looking at 6.5Creedmoor, 280 Ackley Improved, and 300WM....

    As luck would have it I stumbled upon this gun and the deal I got on it made my mind up for me....It shoots well and it is VERY light....I've been pleased so far!

    I like steak. :D

    I didn;t realize that was farm land.......I thought you were higher up in the mountains, and it was just a flat valley with a dirt road cutting thru it.
