Boomershoot Rifle Option

******************UPDATE:  I ordered the Howa**********************

As my Loyal Readers all know, our Boomershoot CZ 557 rifle was most foully stolen from my house during the Great Flood Catastrophe Of 2021.  (I say “our” because I was simply holding it for whoever the raffle winner might be.)

I have been waiting patiently to replace the damn thing, but I despair.  I’m on about six gun outlets’ waiting list, but time is getting tight and if I want to take it up to Boomershoot 2022 to see if it’s fit for purpose, I need to get one of similar quality — PROVIDED that none of the current (and I have to say, most patient) ticketholders object.

The one I’m looking at as a replacement for the CZ 557 is this one:

It’s the Howa Chassis Rifle (HCR), chambered in .308 Win/7.62x51mm NATO (here’s a review which should tell you everything you need to know about it).

I found one, it’s in stock, black as pictured, and the dealer is holding it for me.  All I need is ticketholder approval and it will be on its way to me tomorrow.

Responses in Comments, ASAP please.


    1. You have NO idea how much this alternative will cost me in terms of mockery at the hands of my range buddies.

  1. Young man, we’re not getting any younger! At my advancing years, it would be my luck to win and have the shock of winning cause me to vapor lock. Let’s do this thing!

  2. Go for it!

    What I am not sure of is whether the last bit of funds I sent over were for this event or a prior event that did take place. Memory fades faster these days. Let us know if we need to buy some more tickees.

  3. Can’t remember if I’m in on this or not (I finally bought a house last year; there’s a lot I still haven’t unpacked yet), but in case I am, this seems like a good choice.

  4. Good with me! And no teasing from me, either. I love the same wood-stocked beauties you do, but, unlike you, I also find these types appealing. It has a certain ruggedly utilitarian look I like, actually. And it fits my current mood.
