I am currently taking apart a super light weight Sav 223 to build a super heavy 223.
I build ~ 3 or 4 rifles per year and buy about that many too.
I do not go to the range very often.
The big question is always, "What will I shoot deer with this year?"

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?
