    I like it!! That is a very unique rifle......is it a wood or composite stock?

    It looks like wood to me with the way the stain has brought out the grain, but there are some very realistic composites out there too.

    That'll get a bunny or 2!

    Thanks!

    Its real wood, which is why I like it so much :) They had a red one like mine at the gun shop too, that was neat looking. I've seen the composites though those are really neat looking too.

    My dad has a ruger that is like 15 years old that I've shot before, they are really nice guns so I'm happy with it :)

    yeah, my dad's ruger was the first gun I ever shot. I was like 5 at the time and I couldn't hold it because it was to heavy, so he set it on the back of a chair and let me pull the trigger :)

    COOL! I've only ever shot a pellet gun and a Paintball gun. But we have other guns, I have just never gotten around to using them lol.

    Isn't that purple wood amazing!!! My grandfather makes clocks out of different color woods and that is one of the ones he uses. Here are a couple photos of his clocks:

    Thanks Sarah and Pam!
    Pam, I'm not actually sure how much he sells them for. I know it is a lot as he spends TONS of time on each one. Each color is a different wood - there are no colored stains on it at all - just a clear finish. Also the little details (like the hour markers on the clock) are different woods. They are really amazing clocks. I think they cost over $1000, but I don't know if it's closer to $1,200 or $3000 :greengrin: I really don't know. I can ask him if you want.

    Didn't mean to steal your thread, Sarah. Happy Birthday (way late) and the gun is very pretty!!! I hope you get some warm weather to work with it.
