Just finished this one. It's a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in 7mm08 with the barrel taken down to 20", Timney trigger, B&C Light Medalist w/ Mossy Oak Bottomlan dip, Badger Knob, Wyatt DBM, Weaver Tac 3X15X50 EMDR in a DNX Gamereaper. Gun flat out drives tacks.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
