Savage makes a very nice and affordable shooting stick. The pros are very many to the aesthetic cons on theses rifles and Tx has mentioned the important ones. it is a damn decent rifle.
A novice or experienced individual, IMO, would be happy to have one of these sticks in their stable, in what ever caliber of their choosing.
