Specialty Pistols anyone got one?
I used to have this custom XP-100 in 284. The old man used it to take a pronghorn buck with a few years ago (2005? maybe).
Bought it for $500 at Rocky Mountain Sports in Riverton, sold it online about 2 years later for $1300.
It had a custom barrel, HS Precision pistol stock, Burris 2-7 scope, and they had done some weird things to the bolt handle.
I used to be really into TC Contender pistols before the Encore came out. You can really tie up a lot of money in TC Encore and Contender swag.
I shoot SP's quite a bit and have for years. I bought my first Contender in 1979 and have had a love/hate relationship with them ever since. I have flirted with XP's and Strikers too but am currently in the break open business with three Contenders and an Encore.

Are you shooting a rifle scope on that Savage?
