    Took a week off last week to hang out with my dad, and family.
    He took me out to meet some retired friends of his that spend most of their disposable income on firearms :D

    Fun day with a lot of different firearms. We finished up with a couple 338 lapua rifles they had.
    Was a 110 BA Stealth, and a 110 long range hunter. The stock muzzle break could do with a lot of improvement, but was a lot of fun shooting them. Totally worth the bruised shoulder :D

    A great way to "Reach out and touch someone".

    Accurate guns, but just ugly.

    Fun to shoot though.

    No kidding. One of several reasons i like my 30-06 rifles.

    The owner of the hunter rifle was taking it along on a hunt in africaat some point next week.

    I had a Sako TRG in 338. Beautiful long range rifle but they are damn expensive to feed for sure. On top of that, living in Florida, it was a chore to get to a place that I could actually stretch it out. Eventually I had to let it go, but definitely an awesome round.
