    Layke Tactical AR-15 in 5.56

    I don't know the exact weight, but I thought about using it for my javelina gun and I know I would not want to hike with it all day that's for sure.

    Bed roll

    Just got a canvas cutter. Haven't used it extensively yet, but so far so good. The pole system to keep the bag off of you is awesome. Foam pad eliminates the need for a cot or anything as well. I keep a sleeping bag and pillow rolled up in it so it is grab and go. When rolled up it, it is pretty big, but easy to throw in the back of the truck.

    Layke Tactical AR-15 in 5.56

    I have a Layke tactical AR-15 chambered in 5.56 along with a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x24 optic and hard case with foam inserts cut to fit the gun. I won this gun at the Arizona Elk Society banquet a few years ago and have since put about 20 rounds through it. i just don't use it enough to justify keeping it. Asking $1200 for all of it. Not willing to sell the optic separate.

  11. In observance of its 20th Anniversary in 2017, Henry Repeating Arms has created a superb, highly collectible “One of Twenty” Edition of its highly popular Big Boy .44 magnum lever action rifle. The “One of Twenty” Edition will feature hand-engraving, AAA-grade American Walnut, special “One of “Twenty” serial numbers and Presentation Walnut Display Cases. Each of the “One of Twenty” Big Boys has been donated by Henry to an organization working in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage. Each will be auctioned to provide important funding in support of hunting, shooting and conservation in America. This gun was donated to Backcountry Hunters & Anglers thanks to Steven Rinella - MeatEater and 100% of the proceeds will go to BHA to help us keep up the fight for our public lands and waters.
