This is a VERY RARE Ruger Mini-14 Stock.

My guess is you will not see something like this anytime soon.(I bet your friends don't have one!)

Genuine Ruger Mini-14 Factory stock to start.

A very Skilled Craftsmen acquired some extra large Rattlesnake hide, I was told he began with a 48" rattler to get the spectacular Pattern shown on rifle butt stock. I do not know anything about rattlesnakes to tell you what kinds were used or for that matter how many were used.

The Crafter then applied thin clear coat to seal and protect rattlesnake hide.

Hide is tight and secure, has great feel.

All Ruger Hardware is supplied with stock, you get the metal forend lipcap, metal heat liner is installed also, you get the metal internals for rifle to slide into, you get the matching butt plate, and you get the retainer (SS)screws that will match stock.

So when this arrives all you need to do is pop-off your stock and pop this one on, super simple!

as far as I know, they do not speak English, and their rattles sound like castinettes.

but every neighbor around me has had them. Little old lady next door comes out to put out her garbage and luckily turns on her porch light and whamo right on her door mat is a 4 footer curled up. Across the street they pick up a pile of building blocks and a nice 3 footer awaiting their demise. Next to them 1 in backyard bit 2 puppies, they survived.
You see the news about West Texas, Austin, rattlers coming in by the thousands looking for water, seeing how there is a drought.

rattler Wranglers.....You can make a lot of money, just selling the skins to the guy who does those great gunstocks! Here in North West FL, we seem to see only pigmy rattlers, but they can kill you if you are not careful. My dog hates those sob's--goes nuts, when she finds one in the back yard.

There is not enough skin left to make a low cut dress for a hummingbird.
I obliterate them.
Fire Dept. here will come and get them and remove them. They only take them less than a mile away and release them. If you take a rattler more than 1 mile from his/her ranging area, they won't survive.
I thought this was the point for removing them.

She got out of bed early, pulled on a light
cotton gown and walked down to our garden by
the highway. As she started back to the house she
saw a rattler, she grabbed the bottom of the
gown, pulled it up to her shoulders and
began jumping around and shrieking in total terror.
I got to the window fast to see what was going on,
Ummm Ummm, what a sight :<))
The snake was lethargic, hardly moved when I
nudged it with the shovel. I skinned it and saved
the BONEY meat but decided that since the snake
was not acting right I should toss the meat. Maybe
the snake did not move 'cause it had never seen
such a sight before.

of 'leave alone' is not always the same as mine. They can be aggressive and they certainly have a formidable weapon at their disposal which they will not hesitate to use even when the 'use of deadly force' is not legally justified. Of course, how would they know? The result, though, is why I carry snake shot. I do not kill anything alive, including spiders and bugs, if I can avoid doing so. I'll save it for paper targets, but if it's showtime: Game over.

bearmeat,

I am sorry for laying out bare your ignorance.
Afterward I realized you are a very lonely person
trying to find attention. I know you have no real
friends, the one who you claim to be your friend
walks away when there is a more interesting person
for them to be with. In crowds your input to conversations
are shrugged off and it leaves you feeling alone
in the crowd. You fantasize about yourself in situations
where you're doing heroic things but in your life
you've done nothing interesting to anyone.
The jobs you've held lasted until your uncertanty
of yourself manifests itself and you talk yourself
into getting asked to leave or you're fired.
You're never invited to parties or any social
gathering and hint as much as you do you can't get
anyone to take you fishing, hunting or anything else.
Once again, I feel bad about what I said last night.
Good luck.

The Eastern Diamondback, crotalus adamantus, is the largest rattlesnake species in North America and one of its heaviest venomous snakes as well. Mature adults can grow up to seven feet, but typically are closer to six. Found mainly in the southeastern part of the United States, its range is typically from southern areas of North Carolina down to Florida and west into Louisiana

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

The most dangerous, meaning most aggresive and venemous are the Desert Rattlers. I don't like any of them. bearmeat is quite the contrarian. If I said leave them alone, he would have said kill them. Daisycutter, your analysis of Bearmeat was spot on. I think you made his feelings of inadequacie a reality to him...

rattlers

since were on the subject... most rattlers (including diamondbacks and eastern diamondbacks) have hemotoxic venom which attacks flesh, tissue, muscle then eventually organs if not treated. The Mojave rattler (which we have here in AZ, as well as Dbacks) uses hemotoxins as well as neurotoxins, which attacks the central nervous system and leads to respiratory failure... making it the most dangerous rattler when it comes to venom. I just saw a mojave about 3 weeks ago, although diamondbacks are far more common round here

it pulled its head back just in time and went into the brush. I went back to find it, and I thought their rattles were louder. It was loud at a rattlesnake roundup I went to in Taylor, TX, but that was hundreds of snakes. I have found some interesting critters here since the monsoons. Tarantulas, Whip Scorpions, and quite a few little Camel Spiders. I think you Arizonans call them Sun Spiders, though. I've already acknowledged the probability of going to the ER with a rattlesnake bite, as I'm the dumbass who likes to play with the wildlife. But it beats living life as beatmymeat I suppose.
