Hey everyone. Before I post, I`d like to apologise as this post is going to be really similar to my post In the Introduction tread, After reading some of the rules for this Forum, i figured this is probably a more appropriate area to post my request. (I had posted my introduction and questions all at the same time). Anyhow, I will be getting my firearms license shortly, in order to go hunting with my Father. Im from Whitehorse Yukon and I`m looking for a good rifle to hunt Moose. My old man love his Tikka 30-06 which he purchase 40 years or so ago and it`s the only rifle he will hunt with. This is be my first gun, What im looking for is a gun that will last me a lifetime, something that can be customised, and something I will be able to pass down. What was your first gun? What gun are you most happy with? If you had to do it all over again, what would you buy? My price point at this time is a maximum of 1500$. I`m willing to go over but only if the price difference will make a significant difference in performance. In other words im not willing to go over if all im getting is a nicer finish.
