It's not a God Given Right, it's a Constitutional Right. Good idea about giving the membership as a gift. I just scratched a couple of gifts off my list. Thanks.

I suppose that depends on if you subscribe more to the Lockean or Hobbesian theory of rights. I'd argue that many of the framers of the Constitution were more in line with Locke, and thought government simply protected and promulgated natural rights, but those rights did originate from a power higher than government of man. But, I know many who would disagree with that, and of course the founders were well versed in the writings of Thomas Hobbes as well!
+1  our Declaration of Independence, which pre-dates our US Constitution, which states "Our Rights are unalienable and come from God". And since the US Constitution is the formal expression of the "Will" of the people, the federal government operates with our consent only when it obeys the constitution."

Welcome to the Nation Mr. Warren. What you describe as pre-travel and creep seem to be the exact nature of a two-stage trigger. I believe the two stage trigger pull is measured from the wall, after the pre-travel and creep portion of the trigger squeeze has been taken up. If your measuring from pre-travel to fire, the trigger gauge will register at a heavier trigger pull. if you're measuring the trigger pull from the wall to fire(or bang) and you're RC trigger pull is 4.3lbs, I agree you have a problem. Your being the owner of many Weatherby rifles tells me you're a seasoned shooter, and I'm not trying to school you, just trying to touch all the bases. My last rifle, an S2 vanguard in 257 Wby. has a two-stage match quality trigger that breaks perfectly just at 2.75lbs after the "pre-travel and creep"which I believe is just about par for two-stage triggers. Hoping your problem gets corrected to your satisfaction. Heres a short, but accurate article on triggers from Precision Shooter.

If Weatherby follows suit and does a 75th Anniversary Rifle, looks like it could be a MK V Deluxe model of some type.

Congrats Terry, nice doe and the full camo  on the shotgun looks good too.

Dan: Those hogs sound like they maybe trying to distract you with their best Disco dance moves while they are making their getaway. ;)
Roger, you may have something there with the disco angle, cause come to think of it, John Travolta was one of the Sweathogs. With that shoulder spin, all that hog needed was a strobe light, but he got away just the same.

The shot looked good. I think l would check my zero, the hog  acted like it grazed the spine
+1 When hit high along the spine, I've had them drop then run and also drop, spin on one shoulder a couple of times then run.

Congratulations on taking down a nice old cruiser buck. Any pictures of the old Czech 7mm Wby?
