    I lucked out and got to shoot a sniper rifle. I don't know all the specifics but the gun was 6 grand and the scope over 3 grand. I haven't shot many rifles, but I was able to hit a 3" piece of clay pigeon at 335 yards. Cool ass gun.

    This guy also has an M16 with a night vision scope, and an 11" AR with all kinds of goodies.

    She did just fine as mayor, but we're talking about a town of 7000.
    She was also doing fine as Governor until some of the recent scandals.

    The owner of that rifle wasn't a police officer / pilot was he?

    Sorta/kinda
    When they talk about that they mean the whole borough (county), which is the size of West Virginia. The city of Wasilla is part of the borough, but not really where the problems are. Before Meth, we we were very well known for Marijuana so........ Usual small town stuff.

    Small world.
    Was born in Palmer, lived in Wasilla my whole life. And yes that is where her house is. They've had the Coast Guard boats out on the lake with Secret Service on board for a while now.

    Not personally.

    He is somewhat well known in the rifle community.... Goes by the name "bearguide" . Has a fuckload of ultra nice kit, and doesn't suck at shooting. If you wanted to know how to shoot a bolt gun, I imagine that he'd be a hell of a guy to talk to.

    If I remember correctly, that rifle has an actual M40A3 stock on. McM got a few returned, and gave them to GAP to be distributed only for complete M40A3 builds. I think there was < 10 around, and I know several of them were snatched up by George and crew (GAP), and maybe even Dick Davis (McM). That's a very cool, very rare bird.

    Sounds about right. He talked about having it built, and the cost of it.
    He's a very cool guy, and knows his stuff. He is equally impressive shooting pistol too.

    I figured as much.... There can't be that many people in Wasilla toting bad-fucking-ass rifles like that.

    You just meet him at the range, or do you know him personally?
