Got a caribou hunt coming up next year...looking for the wife a gun.
Also, what extra considerations are necessary for winter hunting guns?
The wife is a 5'2 (short but not a stick). She easily shoots .22s, 12ga. and her 44MAG handgun. However, some full size guns just seem too big.
I'd like to get synthetic for all weather gun. This be a gun that lasts her for a while. I am not sure about synthetics and plastic parts.
Cost is a consideration budget is $600 and less.
Which rifle do you all think would be better? She seems to like both guns as far as fit. I know it should be her decision...
I also need to outfit her with scope and binocs, which I think we'll go with Nikon monarch 8x42 binocs and Nikon Monarch scope. What power would you recommend for her?
Here's what I am looking at
Remington 700 ADL Synthetic Youth 30-06 $345
I've tried looking at the Youth models for her. I found a good deal on the remington. I've read it is a pretty decent gun. This will be my first synthetic purchase, anyone know about the plastics on this gun?
Also, never ordered a rifle online. How does it work out? I know you need an FFL dealer. Anyone provide that service in FAI?
Tikka T3 Lite 30-06 $478 / $548
Also thought about the Tikka, but don't know about the recoil. I know I have read about it, just would like some smaller shooters opinions. Another thing I am afraid of is the plastic components.
Seems to shoot well out of the box, but is there too much plastic?
Probably would just get the blued finish...
