when I was a kid (back in the dark ages
The old man that pretty much taught me how to hunt (after I lost my father at 13) used an old "as issued" Kar 98 Mauser he had "liberated" from a German that no longer had a need for it.
When I asked him why he had such an expensive scope (Lyman Alaskan) on a cheap rifle, he shrugged, and said that almost any rifle will shoot straight if it has good sights.
That was some of the best advice I have ever had. I would have saved a lot of money and hassle if I had followed it from the beginning.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
