    I used to be the same Rushy. Had just about every brand of rifle in every caliber at one point or another. Built heaps myself and when I lost the tool skills had heaps more built for me.
    It was fun but costly.
    However if I knew then what I know now.....

    Haha. Not that simple @Rushy.
    Being left handed, waiting for exactly the right rifle at the right price to come up can be a test of patience.
    I bought the standard T3 300wm for the right price and do like the cartridge (I shot a fair few animals with it) but I had always wanted a 7mmRM. Then a brand new 7mmRM barrel came up (again for the right price) I bought it. Couldn't get a laminated left handed T3 either so bought a Boyds stock. Spent a lot less than I would have had to getting exactly what I wanted at the time. And the evolution continues as that rifle now has a VX5 in Talleys rings.
    As for the hydrographing - just cos I can. I guess I am just one of those people that enjoys "personalising" my stuff - or I keep changing my mind.
    Obviously your rifles remain standard and untouched.

    Yep. Every rifle I have is still exactly as the factory made it. Not even a lightened trigger among them.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Don't be silly Rushy. Would be a waste to not re-use the air in the tyres too.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
