Rabbits, birds, Whitetail, Moose, Elk...
My sons is very comfortable. It has a Boyds Varmint stock on it. They give a little more control.

Oh ha so anything really :P and good to know and this is probably off the point but i was practicing with my air rifle today (just having fun, gun control is too strict for anything else) and i could not figure out a way to shoot without moving when i pull the trigger, it wa really infuriating and as i am the only one with any interest at all in firearms near me i had noone to ask so do you have any tips? (it kept moving right a far as i can remember, and i am right handed)

ive owned several remingtons currently have a winchester mod 70 springfield 1903a3 and two mosin 91/30.

i would have to say my favorite is my 1944 mosin PU sniper



yes that black and white fur on the right is a real skunk skin hat i wear in the winter



before i cleaned the cosmo off the scope. on my particular scope the year of manufacture is the first two digits of the serial number. made in Factory 297 located in Yoshkar-Ola. it still had the original dessicant paper put there by the soviet aresanal workers in 1964. the 1964r with the box and x in the center is the arsenal stamp when the rifle was gone over by soviet workers before being crated and not used until this year when i purchased it.



i love this rifle by far my favorite.

I have a lot of perfect rifles (well perfect for me) but there is one production rifle that if someone was not making it as a catalogued item I would have had it built. That is my Kimber M84 in 7mm-08. As far as I'm concerned it is quite possibly the most perfect hunting rifle in the world. Ultralight, very accurate and just a pleasure to shoot and carry all day. Mine wears a Kahles 2-7 scope on Aluminum Talley rings/bases (it had Kimber rings and bases in this picture but those are gone in favor of the lower weight Talleys). Weight is a hair over 6 pounds.
