Finally bought my first gun!
After lots of internet browsing, magazine reading and asking a few questions here I went out today and bought my very first gun!

She's a Savage 93R17 BVSS .17HMR Grey Laminate stock with stainless steel barrel. Also picked up a 3-9x40 scope and suitable rings, a sturdy case to protect her and a couple of boxes of ammo to break her in at the local range, when the weather warms up enough to venture outside.

BIG thanks to everyone who helped answer my questions earlier on, right now I'm a very happy camper. I'll let you all know how her and I get along and post a range report when I get some firing time in.

Nice looking set up. We will be expecting a range report when you get her on the range.

If you wait more than 3 or 4 days you have way more will power than I do. Hell When i got my 700 vls i was out in snow ad temps in the teens to shoot it.

Man, that is a nice-looking rifle! Let us know how she performs for you.

Very nice looking, gotta let me know how the savage trigger is! I've been curious about the 17HMR for a while now. With that thick barrell I'll bet she's gonna be a tack driver. Can't wait to see the report.

Nice purchase! I'm looking forward to the range report.

You will love that gun! Very accurate and very lethal to pesty critters ;)

PS stick to the plastic tipped bullets, no HP's
