I was someplace recently I shouldn't have been, doing something I shouldn't have been doing, namely, I was at my local gun shop looking around. I always get into trouble when I do that!
In this case my eyes wandered to a beautiful blond (Savage target rifle, Model 93R17BTVS , stainless barrel, accu-trigger, 17 cal rimfire). When I lay my hands on her, it was love at first site. Now I am a happily married man, but I couldn't help fantasizing about taking her out this summer, holding her, etc., etc. I just feel I have to possess her!
So I have a few questions:
1) How is the 17 cal rimfire for target shooting at 100-200 yards? I can shoot the strings I hang tin cans from with my target 22LR, but it's no longer so good out at 100 yards. Is the 17 cal HMR stable enough for long range performance?
2) This Savage looks hot, but how does she perform? I heard that in the past her relatives did not have a good reputation. Should I be looking at a different family? (CZ for example?)
3) I have tried a cold shower, but nothing seems to help. Can anybody save me from this passion? Shouldn't I be happy with all the guns I have?
