Congratulations!!!, sounds like you got a great deal all around.

I would classify that as a hand cannon. I hope your arm is well healed before sighting that in. Congrats on the new toy.

When these first came out a friend of mine showed up at the deer cabin with one just like yours HB. After he handed it to me, my first question was "Where's the tripod??" It is one heavy pistol, but what a beauty--congrats on your new weapon!!
