"River Rat" - Jim Hallford (Alabama) {Lancaster Rife}

River Rat.jpg (563868 bytes)"Al, just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much I am enjoying my rifle. I've taken two more deer with it this year bringing the total to an even dozen since I've had it. It has become my "go to" rifle, even though I own many modern rifles. Still looks as good as the day you built it and always draws a crowd at the range. I still marvel at your craftsmanship, the way it fits me and the gorgeous wood. It's "squirrel rifle accurate" and it never lets me down if I do my part. It's just awesome! Thanks!!!"
Jim Hallford

P.S. Your site is a great resource. I've sent a bunch of my friends to it when they get to asking me about my rifle. Maybe one of them will order one from you one day.
