When last I checked, you were the only one taking this so personally. This is a forum for learning things when questions are asked. As has been stated, ad nauseum, from my very first review of three rifle actions - there isn't any malice or stone throwing, it's all facts. Nothing that has been posted can't be backed up with pictures provided and with cold hard facts direct from the history books themselves.
We keep hearing all these stories about the great untouched Remington rifles that roll off the presses and shoot 1,000 yard groups the size of quarters, get even the newest of shooters their very own trophy bucks and Hog's Tooth necklaces from the Murder Inc. set.
So many stories of so and so did this and that with their Remington 700. That's great. Stories make for great entertainment, but there are still facts about ALL WEAPONS discussed on this very forum that people in the know find fault with. Glocks, SKS's, 1911's, and even the mighty Remington 700.
Stop taking the sharing of information, and one person's opinion, on this one subject so personally. I rechecked the question of the thread starter and it didn't say I couldn't answer with my opinion, the same way you could answer with yours, because it's still a free country - at least for now.
Unless your name happens to be Remington, you don't have anything to worry about.
And for the record, I never said anyone should throw any weapon in the river - that would be a waste of a perfectly good gun. I am here to help provide information and insight just like, I would suspect, you are.
For Christ's sweet sake - It's still the internet. If any one person was making a life altering decision or major purchase based on the information gleamed from one forum board response, I would say what rifle to buy would be the LEAST of their problems.
Can we safely agree to disagree on this one lone topic? Or do we need to drag this debate from thread to thread whenever the subject comes up?
