All I can say is buy it if you can afford it. I bought a sweet 16 Belgium made Browning about 30 years ago. I got in a bind and traded it for a horse trailer. I still regret trading off that gun.
"I do not aim with my hand; I aim with my eye. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
