I went to a gunshow looking for such a stock, and there it was $40.
That rifle I built with old parts is 13 pounds without scope.
It seems to me that Choate went out of their way to make it heavy. I can get it from the vehicle to the benchrest at the range.
I have bought 3 of the High Tech Specialties [Bansner] stocks that weigh 20 ounces. Those stocks I put on hunting rifle and carry them across sections of land.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
