Just promise me you won't shoot it firmly planted on your hip. ;)

Yep. But I've sent it in for some "tweaks". I've fired it twice. Two rounds for a function test/recoil sampling test only. Functions well. The ejection system seems to work well so far. Have not tested for accuracy yet. Test firing involved Two rounds. Both were the Hand loaded Hornady 230 Grain FMJ Flat Points that ran 2500 FPS out of my AR. I'm am now a true believer that the AR 15 gas system, John Noonans' Recoiless A1 custom Stock and Ross Shulers' muzzle brake cut about 65% of the recoil. Because this little rascal is a bronco. Definitely going to invest in a Limbsaver pad.

Okay guys. Here it is. The only BK Guns, New England Style single shot 450 Bushmaster rifle in The Lone Star State. Yep. I'm the very first Texan to own one. Now if I can just get my doctor to clear me in a few months, I'll try to get a video up as soon as I'm able to. Maybe I'll have a buttpad for it by then.

I picked mine up on Thursday. I got the scope mounted yesterday, but haven't had time to hit the range yet. I hope to go next weekend.

Nice. I'm loading up a few 250 Gr Shockwaves right now as soon as I can get to feeling better, I'm gonna test them out of both my AR and the single shot

I sent my barrel in for threading and a Ross Brake. Meanwhile, I've got to take a bit off the stock and add a Limbsaver pad.
