I have put 7 Shilen barrels on rifles of mine.
I have more Shilen barrels waiting for me to put them on other rifles.
I have also worked other premium brands; Krieger, Lothar Walther, Lilja, Hart, Douglas, PacNor, and Parker Hale.
I consider Shilen the best deal.
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?
