I was in Bass Pro last night cruising the gun rack when I saw a light colored Browning in the rifle section. After looking at it closer, it was a 2014 Shot Show edition X-Bolt Medallion in .270. The stock was maple, and it was beautiful. Lots of grain and even some nicks and spots to give it char...

I'm going to a job interview next week after making it through the phone interview round. I spoke directly to my potential boss and he was very honest and candid about the job/company.
