    The annual gun show came to town this weekend, and I couldn't pass up a few good deals-

    I added a .50cal traditions flintlock, a $219 gun that I paid $125 for

    and this Weatherby .308 which I've been dying to get for a while

    wuu wuuuuuuu, i'm up to 10 now, which is two more than my gun cabinet hold, so that means, the new winter project is a bigger cabinet, possibly a 16 gun unit

    i dont care who makes it, a .308 bolt action is deadly accurate

    i see you are from PA, i used to go hunting in Tioga County when i was living w/ my parents, much larger deer than down here in VA

    it kicks pretty decent. Depends on the grain of wood in the stock though.

    thanks E, i was hoping you'd see y0

    as for the kick of the .308, it's extremely mild as far as modern rifles go- Like pope said, the weight of the gun has a lot to do with how much a gun kicks, and that Weatherby is about 7.5 pounds, plus a 1 pound scope, which really helps to tame the already mild recoil

    i think we should have a hondaswap shoot off :)
