    Those old pumps are cool
    Amish assault rifles
    The two I own are in varmint calibers, one in 222 the other in 223
    I would love to find a deal on one in a deer caliber

    I found one in 30-06 about three years ago for $250ish. Grabbed it quick. I dont think I've shot more than a box through it, nice gun.

    I have one in 30.06 too. My dad has one he bought when i was little. His is the deluxe model. Its a real nice gun. The furniture is much more detailed. He said he paid 125.00 new back then.

    Very popular rifle for whitetail deer up here in Northern Wisconsin, and the .270 Win. is an excellent caliber with 130 grain bullets.

    They shoot minute of large game animal,the trigger's are pretty poor in those guns,pretty much the trigger assembly from an 1100 or 870 shotgun.
    I'll stick to my bolt action rifles for my big game rifles.

    Now that I think about it I should take mine out and swap the safety on it and hunt with it next year. I'm not 100% but I think a Remington 870 safety will fit. Maybe I'll throw a little 2x7 scope on it or something.

    My neighbor prefers his 770 over his 760. Im the other way around. I use my 770 for range play. He thinks the 770 can take more heavy loads.
