This warty rifle won the squirrel shoot this year at Hefley Rendezvous.

Beats me how some builders besmirch their own rifles which, IMHO, look really good; often so good that I'd love to own them.  I'd say bragging about them is usually quite justified.  ???

Since I am not a builder, I can besmirch away. ;D  That rifle of Taylor's is a beauty, for sure. No warts.

Me too, Daryl.  Taylor is in a totally different class, if I may so presume.  I guess I always try and dig out the "good" in a gun some might call "bad".  Like the guy whose friend call his wife ugly.  and he agreed but added that she sure could evermore cook.
