Get a Savage , Ive got several and they are all very accurate,never
had a problem with any of them. You just cant go wrong with the 3006,
hunt anything walking, and ammo everwhere. :thumbsup:

The best deal I have found were at Walmart, you get a synthetic stock with pillar bedding, mounted scope and an accutrigger for about 370.00
Thats in Abilene or Brownwood Tx. Im sure that price is comparable
for all stores in Texas. I plan on buying another one in the near future.

Are you talking pro's and con's about the round itself or the various guns that are out there?

I have owned firearms from just about every major gun manufacturer,and
can honestly say they are all pretty good with the technology and
machining they use today .You really wont go wrong with any of them
The Savage ,to me is the best gun for the money. Another gun I like
is the handi-rifle from New England Arms. although it is a single shot
It to is a very well made gun for about 220.00

well the deer lease is cheap and really close. im going to use it for evening hunts since we cant really hunt public marshes at the roost.
