Five minutes of fame …

Sorry for the long break, I’ve been busy again. This week I have three different jobs keeping me from my free time, so I’ll keep this short. But I promise to post more often in future.

A little while ago I was reading a shooting magazine online, when I stumbled upon a series of articles called “Gunfight Friday”. Every week the article features two comparable firearms belonging to readers of the magazine, along with a short statement by the owner about the rifle. Readers are then invited to vote and and express their opinions in the comments.

There was also an invitation to readers to submit pictures of their guns that could be used in future articles, and so I decided to throw my hat into the ring.

I submitted a picture of my .308 hunting rifle with the laser cut checkering, and a few weeks later it was featured. Click here to see the article.

Unfortunately, most people seemed to prefer the other rifle, which I thought was a bit garish if I’m honest, but it certainly exhibited great talent on the part of the owner who carved it.

However, it was fun to see one of my favorite guns on display, and despite “losing” the vote, there were many positive comments that I enjoyed reading.

I may submit again in the future.
