Okay, so there was a pretty clear choice when the conflict was homebrew vs. 357. Now what about a custom shock for my ST1100 vs. a 357? So many decisions...

The solution to Afghanistan is real easy. Just make a big public announcement that the Taliban was responsible for Dale Earnhardt's death, there's no bag limit, and provide free transportation plus a couple of cases of beer to each man who travels there. Problem solved.

Get the gun, if the stock shock on the St fails.....shoot it.

Are the triggers any better on GP's than SP101's? I had an SP and I hated the trigger even after I had it worked on. Sold it.

I'm upgrading the stock on my .308 to a Bell and Carlson A5.

Looks like a good system and reviews I've read are all positive.

Any of you long range, sniper d00ds have experience with them?
