The Montagnards got hosed pretty badly when our government bailed on S. Vietnam in the mid 70's, a lot of them were killed when N.Vietnam took over, some did get out and some made it to America thanks to the efforts of American soldiers that served with them.

Lots of them are in N.C. and I had a chance to talk with some of the Rhade which I was a member of their tribe.
They were amazed that I still had my Montagnard bracelet.

The "Duke" John Wayne received one when he visited Vietnam and never took it off after that. If you look at his movies after 68 you will see the bracelet on his wrist in every movie he was in.

Good job with that finger straight and off the trigger! So many like to post pics that I swear were taken right before uttering the words "oh ****".

The stock looks good. It offers good control too.
