Instead of a normal monthly meeting in the clubhouse, eight members of the Robson Ranch Gun Club took a field trip to tour the new Shilen Rifle manufacturing plant in Ennis, Texas on September 12. Shilen has been making very accurate custom barrels since 1955. In recent years they have started making and selling their own custom triggers, receivers and bolts. They also will make a complete rifle for custom orders that can take up to a year to finish. Serious benchrest competitive rifle shooters know Shilen is all about accuracy. The gun guys who participated in this event enjoyed the tour very much, and we thank the kind folks at Shilen for giving us a wonderful, educational tour of their facility. Nearly everyone added some things to their own Christmas wish list while we were there. Check out their website: www.shilen.com.
Our next meeting will be October 10 at the Cabela’s store in Fort Worth. More details will be in the HOA email updates.
