My primary hunting rifle is a Model 70XTR in .30-06. Great gun. The new ones made by FN are even better.
They don't have the fancy walnut, and eye appeal of the old pre-64, but for what a rifle is made for, i.e. shooting, the new ones are actually a better gun than the old ones.
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
