Puck, take it easy on Andy... it is bad enough that he is posting from work, now you want him to do research and give you a freaking power point presentation.

I honestly 100% think that the setup you have in mind will completely scare the crap out of you at what it's capable of speed wise.

You really think TTB setups can't run the hammers???
I never said that it couldn't be done. I have seen it done on youtube and on the KOH site. The problem is that when you are taking a buggy through, damage is of little concern. To me, damage, is a slightly bigger concern.

I already know it is going to scare the crap out of me speed wise but it will be fun! That point got me when you told me that the build plan for your Expo pretty much mirrored mine.

If all goes as planned, you'll probably be away but I'd say come wheeling with me in May!
Reading the build thread for the Bronco that you showed me a while back that was for sale pulled around 24 inches before being bumped and strapped. That thing was amazing.

While I will be gone for the wheeling trip, I should come back with a pocket of cash. I should have a truck built in no time after that!

I think you will be happy with either gun. I'm am not one for a ton of customization on a gun so either would make sense for me. But I know you do like that and the Stevens would be a better choice. I'm a big ruger fan and that is what I would buy. BTW my ruger single six should be at the house today back from Ruger.

Andy, if you don't mind single action, single shot go with the encore, barrels/stocks are infinitely configurable. Don't think the trigger is easily adjustable though. IMO, if you want bolt action, go for the ruger. I don't know much about the other one, but ruger does provide excellent support and they're solidly built.

No more like the guy flatting tires, blowing off his air bags, 100% destroying his truck and getting a ambulance trip.

Same jump, different cameras... These are from autoblog but it's all over fb right now since well... You can imagine the types I'm friends with on there. LOL
