:thumbs2: :thumbs2:If I had the money I'd have one on the way. I will have to be satisfied to hear you talk about yours.

You'll have to meet me at PSC and shoot it.

I may take you up on that. I'll bring my .444 Marlin.

Sounds like it will be high power day, I'll bring the Marlin 45-70 and the T/C S&W 500 too. By the time we're done our shoulders will be trashed.

Doesn't anybody have a McMillan TAC .50 to help these two fools out? "rlol"

I had not seen one of these before this thread. This seems like a completely impractical gun that I definitely do not need. But it is beautiful. Maybe I should get one?

You need one but you don't know it yet.

I'll also bring the 458 SOCOM too, it's recoil is mild compared to the S&W 500.

Picked up the #1 yesterday, got out of work early and went by Cabelas. Being an FFL I should know better but I didn't look it over very well. He pulled it out of the box and I looked quickly for scratches or other problems then boxed it up. The front sight looked weird but I was trying to hurry so I never looked very close. When I got home I found out the front sight was broken off, part was still in the dove tail but the rest was nowhere to be found. I spent 30 minutes on hold between the Cabelas League City store and the 1 800 Cabelas customer service before I could talk with someone about it. Supposedly Ruger is going to mail me a front sight. I was hoping to shoot it this weekend so now I have to mount a scope in order to shoot it.
