    ...but don't really like the Ruger Precision Rifle? Contemplating the Ruger American Predator in a LSS chassis. Well I have another option now and I like it a lot. Magpul just introduced the Hunter stock for the short action RAR.

    First pict is the LSS, second is the Magpul.

    This is the Savage I like.

    I don't have the RARP or either of the stocks.....yet. But I do want a precision rifle. I think the American Predator in 308 or either of the Creedmore calibers with a chassis would give me what I want at a good price.

    I like the LSS better too, but the Magpul gives me another option that would be a few hundred dollars cheaper. Plus it would have the same look and feel as the Magpul stocks i could put on my 10/22 and shotgun.

    I wish I did have the derby winner. Actually I am selling off some of my "collection" and taking the proceeds to find my new "collection". I have (or had) a Handi Rifle in most of the calibers they were produced in. You would be surprised at how much a Handi is worth if you part it out and sell them. Some barrels alone bring more than I paid for the rifle! But I end up with a bunch of stripped receivers. I am going to talk with my FFL and see if he thinks he can sell them.

    Why wouldn't you go with a Ruger Gunsite in .308? Quite accurate and quite versatile.

    I am guessing you might possibly have more than one after all. Sort of like potato chips you can't have just one. If only guns were as cheap to buy as chips.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, if you could possibly call a fine piece of American craftsmanship ugly then I guess it would be. And yes I have one.308 Gunsite as well as numerous other Ruger's. .300rcm, .338rcm, .375ruger, .22lr skeleton, 12 guage all weather red label not to mention several other calibers in other brands. I love bolt actions though so maybe my opinion is biased.

    Well that's your opinion but I could part a knats hair at three hundred yards with my boat anchor. But I live in Texas and was born with a rifle in my hands. You?

    :D

    I will not resist sticking my nose in - with my observation that 'born Texans' have a way about them, and immigrant easterners are the same way only more so.

    You have to remember everything is bigger in Texas. Even gnats, LOL
    Salt water Mosquitos are so big they take humans to go.
