    A few days ago I asked for some opinions on a build I am considering, and I thank those who responded.
    Well after a couple of Drs. visits it just is not feasible to build what I would like to build, besides I would need to sell 3-4 of my rifles just to buy the action with all that is needed to shoot it, then another for the barrel and maybe one more for the stock, and by the time I was done I might not even be able to shoot it.
    I am still going to do a build just for fun ( don't really care if it is a winner). I will order a new stock and barrel, a new trigger and take down an old action I already have to build it. At my age and physical condition spending over 5 grand on a build just isn't a smart move, I'll spend a grand give or take and have just as much fun shooting it.
    Going to be a 30br shooting in the VHS class.

    At some point we all have to accept there's a practical limit to what we can afford, given our circumstances.

    While I'm sorry to hear your doctor's visits aren't giving you a green light to do what you were dreaming about, I trust you've made the right decision to allocate what resources you have towards a revised goal that will still allow you to actively participate and have fun with something that you enjoy doing.

    Rest assured you're not alone in this....

    Bullets, barrels and bedding... the 3 B’s are the only real necessity to be competitive. The rest of the stuff is more or less a luxury.
