Went to two local gun stores to search for a scope. Found one. Wasn't what I went in to find. Ruger American in .270. Felt better than the marlin or savage to me on how it shouldered. Bolt was smooth and the stock had a little more felt heft. More pics later. Busy now. Sad part is, no scope. Now I need two. Shocked my wife who was there. Asked how much it cost. Told her as much as the last two coach purses you just bought, or the box o clothes from place.
