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.
