    Phil did not see his shadow so spring is comming soon. (EARLY SPRING) He would not predict if the Steelers would win the super bowl.

    If he is laying on his back he can not see his shadow!!!!!
    Remington 700's are dangerous (22/250's) are really dangerous, 223's are a close second, ask "Smoke". Clean kills out to 474 yards. Glenn Allison

    Go to Lone Star Field Products.com and you will see the rifle rest. Click on all the pictures and you will see me and my wife. I helped to make changes to the rest when it first came out. Outstanding for long range shooting, sighting gun in etc.
