Hey guys
This custom 7 mm mag rifle was stolen from my truck along with a Remington 700 BDL in 7 mm mag around October 12 out in Grantsville. The custom rifle has a Borden Timberline action and a Zeiss 4.5-14 scope. Barrel has LongRiflesInc etched on it. 700 BDL has a black synthetic stock and a Redfield 3X9 scope, serial number ending in 1054. Both rifles were in brown Trailmax rifle scabards. If you see one of these rifles floatin around out there there's a reward for info leading to their return.
Thanks
Wes

Sorry to hear... I live out that way as well. Was the rifle visible in the truck? Sounds like someone who knew they were there that took them.

Hope you're able to recover them.

That sucks people are just crazy nowadays. I am hearing more and more of vehicle breakins and property being stolen from hunters all the time.

Make sure you keep any eye on the local gun sales boards, KSL and GunsAmerica, GunBroker and pawn shops. I hope you reported this and filed a claim with your auto insurer and your homeowners insurance too. One of them will pay a goodly portion of your loss.

That custom 7mm sure is pretty! I'm sorry to hear you've been a victim of people that just can't seem to leave other people's stuff alone.

Guys. I feel like a freaking idiot. My rifles are never out of the locked gun room unless we are shooting, hunting, or cleaning. On the 12th of October my wife and I went out for a day of shooting. I've been busy and haven't had the time to clean the rifles. So yesterday I went to get them from the gun room and clean them in preperation for my elk hunt next week. I open the gun room and no rifles. I looked in the reloading room, no rifles. i looked in my truck thinking I forgot to bring them in, no rifles. I tore the house apart, NO FREAKIN RIFLES. I call my wife and asked her if she had moved em. Nope. Well the only thing I can think of was I spaced out and didn't bring them in from shooting and someone stole them from my truck. I called and made a police report. I've been awake all night feeling like i was going to vomit, thinking how I could be so stupid as to leave my rifles in the truck. I kept walking backwards trying to figure out what happened. This morning I remembered I had realoaded a batch of bullets. The only way I could have done that was to have my rifle in the house so I could measure the chamber. I told my wife someone must have come in the house and took them. I went downstairs and was checking windows. In our storage room where everyting has accumulated as we finish our basement I couldn't reach the windows because of items stacked in front of them. As i was staring at the windows I see a little tip of brown sticking up. I had to move a few things and wholly smokes there were my rifles. After unloading the truck from shooting I laid the rifles on the floor in my theater room before putting them away. Well I got busy shampooing the carpet and set them just inside the storage room and forgot them. My wife went down to get her suitcase to go on vacation and moved them out of the way back behind other stuff. I was all ready to cancel my hunt and turn my tag back in. **** it's hell getting old and senile ! :V|:

I was already to cancel my hunt and turn my tag back in. **** it's hell getting old and senile ! :V|:
