    My father has bought the gun, we were number 66 on the order list, and it finally came in a few days ago. I'm going home from the city next weekend and it will update with some pics and comments in how it shoots.
    If you aren't familiar with the gun then here is a few things to look at...

    He collects a lot of different guns... Large caliber long distance is one of the groupings he likes. Most of these guns do nothing but go up in value anyway... So that's why.

    Don't worry everyone, I'll post pics at weeks end.

    Can you imagine lugging that around for days on end in the mountains?

    Yes! I would love to own this gun one day! But I doubt I'll ever have that kind of cash to spend on a firearm.

    Hell no! The biggest thing I own is 30-30 and I'm partial to .22's in general. The PICTURE of the gun makes me tired.

    Okay here we go... I had 3 shots, one at 600 yards, one at about 680 yards and one at 1050 yards... Here are pictures and links to YouTube videos that show the order of the shots...

    Here is the result of the first shot. I was a little off because I believe I miscalculated the wind a little bit.

    Next shot...

    That one was pretty dead on.

    Looking for a place to make a 1000+ yard shot...

    Final Shot...

    Here are both of the rock shots, 680 yard shot at bottom and 1050 yard shot at top of rock.

    This is a view from the rocks back towards where we shot from...

    If you look at this picture and follow the cleared country back to the brush line at the top center you can see a faint caliche road running left to right... We were sitting on that caliche road towards the right of where the brush line starts... Pretty stinking far. Definitely a shot that you would never see coming! I can't wait to take a deer or hog with it this year.

    What do you all think of the gun, my pics and my videos?

    Dude thank you so much for sharing this with us. I could watch videos and look at picture of this all day. Probably the closest I'll ever get to shooting one. :(
