  I know there is a thread going for posting rigs but this is myfirst attempt at posting pictures and wasn't sure they would work. When I get a chance I will post all my Savages 8 of them and still counting not counting shot guns.DSC00280.jpg picture by rjtfroggy
 
  This is a Savage model 11 that I just converted from a dbm to a blind mag and placed into a Boyd's thumbhole laminate stock. It is a 243 with a 2.8-10 Simmons scope that will be changed as funds allow. As it is it shoots right around a.65 group@100.

 This one I just built, it is a Savage model 12 with a factory 223 varmint fluted 26" barrel and a Savage shark tooth stock.
 Hasn't been shot yet so there is no range report. It will wear a 3.8-12 Intencity(weaver 40/44) scope as soon as my leupold mount from swfa gets here, and when funds allow it will get a 16ss put on strictly a bench gun for 200 yards.
 Hope you like.

Thanks for posting that. Just a suggestion on size. If you resize to 800x600 it will fit perfectly and make the narrative in your post easier to read.

 The wife thinks my reloading room/work shop needs curtains so to keep piece I just let her go. Keeps her away from the safeWink. Look past the window and you can see why there is no range reports, that white aint sun glare.
 
  OK Roy you got me past how to post them so where do I resize for the next time?

You must have gotten some type of Photoshop type software with your camera in order to transfer the pictures onto your computer. I use the editing functions within those programs to resize.
