There will never be another Calfee SPEC rifle built...


Or will there?


Before I proceed...............


CYA friends, I'm still completely dejected by the absolute failure of SPEC 9, the GEORGIA SHAKER...


The Shaker was, in my opinion, my finest SPEC........


But....................


Due to circumstances completely beyond my control, the Shaker turned out to be worthless as a competitive RFBR gun.


The last I heard, the Shaker has been butchered into an unrecognizable semblance from the beautiful SPEC rifle that left my shop 11 years ago....


1909


The Shaker has been my greatest letdown as a RFBR schmidt..


______________________________



Now......................


Will Calfee suck it up and build one more SPEC rifle, before they throw the dirt in his face?



SPEC 10 was to be named " THE VIRGINIAN".....


Your friend, Bill Calfee

The best of times, and the worst of times.


CYA friends:


My greatest RFBR build, SPEC 9, the GEORGIA SHAKER, was the best of times during my RFBR schmidt career, and now the SHAKER'S demise is the worst of times during my RFBR schmidt career...


Never have I put so much of myself into a project, where I wound up so disappointed, as in the GEORGIA SHAKER, SPEC 9.


I AM GEORGIA SHAKER....

1914


And the world took the SHAKER from me..........
