    Bucky;
    That's a beautiful rifle. Bragging rights for someone.
    Although, it's too much for my budget and too much for my shoulder.
    All of that hand engraving and premium wood comes at a cost.

    That is one awesome looking rifle. I first saw price and thought wow that is expensive till I realized I was missing another "o" in the price. That rifle is for someone with money to throw away and not miss it. I can't imagine someone paying that price. Not anyone I know anyway.lol
    Yeah right drop it in the mud. Since when does the town bank vault have mud in it?

    Very nice. Too bad there is only one for sale, since I really want to purchase a matching set. {not}

    I don't know, for my 95 grand, I think I'd look around for a used Rigby or maybe a Holland and Holland and spend the remaining money on a trip to Africa to make sure the rifle still works.

    I got the H & H Magnum.
    The Airline tickets, accommodation, and Guide, that may be a different story !

    If you buy it and shoot it just one time does it depreciate $20,000?

    One for you Gumpy

    Both rifles are .375 H & H Magnums

    Guess which one is mine ! (the Remington 700 SPS) cost Au$780, and the scope Au$500
    Just in case you are having trouble telling them apart, it's the hand painted one, with the aid of Krylon Spray cans, and a mighty Ziess Conquest Scope adorns it.

    It hits really hard, makes a huge boom, and is very very accurate

    Cheers
    Bucky

    It's my choice of rifle for Sambar Deer.
    Trust me they don't get up when hit.
    I did post pictures of one I nailed a few weeks back.

    I believe the key to that caliber, is the projectile, and my preferred choice for Sambar, was Speer 235gr Hot Cor, but I have loaded up some 270gr Woodleigh PP's for Scrub Bulls, Pigs, and Camels, for that Western Australia hunting trip, that has been postponed, again, and now too hot to hunt, in that part of Oz.

    Cheers

    Somehow I don't think I'll ever have to worry about being in such a dilemma.

    If you have that much money to spend on a rifle, why worry about firing it, scratching it, or dropping it in the mud.

    Person that buys that gun will probably buy a trophy wild game head for them to mount it on the wall above the gun. What good is the gun without a trophy mounted above it? Such a shame when a $95,000 gun is used for nothing except a gun cabinet show piece. Like buying a new Corvette and just let it sit in the garage and brag about its 500 hp and handling characteristics.
    LOL I would have bigger chance of accidentally killing myself with the Corvette.
