Looks like I am moving out of state in the near future.

I read an article that mentioned Michael Moore. It said:
Moore, who has spent most of the past decade transitioning into a beanbag chair...

The Indiana thing? If it's a good opportunity, go for it and all the best.

Though on a personal note, now that I'm here I like this area so much, it would have to be something really special to pry me away.

So you must be about to go do something awesome. :D

I was just watching a ted talk on why millenials are useless, but it was preceded by an Acura commercial set to Motorheads cover of "Sympathy for the Devil"

Somebody in Marketing REALLY screwed that one up.

Thanks, it is somewhat hard to leave as this is home (most of my family is here) but it is an executive position and I have been trying to make that jump for a few years. So I think I need to jump on it while I can.

Mike Rowe is hysterical. I actually started laughing at the "wiccans and hippies" comment, the clown comment was funny too... :lol:

So i got bored... :twisted:

Decided to do a bit of a thought exercise.

A Pierce titanium action, manners ultra light stock, and a sendero taper proof reaearch carbon fiber barrel all together weighs under 6.25 pounds.

.375 RUM generates just under 5500 fought pounds with a 300 grain bullet.

Recoil would be... unpleasant. :lol:

I figure that a light scope, rings, bedding, trigger, etc would bring the whole thing to roughly 7 and a half pounds.

A Pierce Ti action is roughly 1400 bucks, a Proof research barrel is 830 bucks, and manners stock is 600ish. Add in another 6 bills for a Leupold, a hundo for Talley rings, 250ish for a Jewell. Another hundred for supplies...

It can probably be had from a custom smith for 6k or less.

A Christensen Arms "Ridgeline" msrps at around 2 grand, is available in 7mm-08, and should weigh around 6.5 lbs sans optics or rings.

Im pretty sure you can't put a scout mount on a carbon fiber wrapped barrel.

More fun and games with the plant in China. They are shipping assemblies missing components and blaming the design (the design hasn't changed in 10 years). WTF.

It was not so bad when they reported to us, but 4 years ago corporate switch our division to being regional (NA) and so the plant in China reports to the Asian regional structure - which gives not a rat's ass about our stuff. We have been slowly moving stuff back here, but in the meantime they are f-cking us every chance they get.
