I held it in my hands....... but it took too long to come in, and I went and bought a dang ring instead realmad realmad realmad

It's at the Academy in San Marcos.. unless the gun counter guy snatched it up already. The lady has no idea how big this is.. hope it goes to a good home!

....and I hear the new Ranch Rifles are much more accurate than the older versions. I bet that rifle at Academy is a 1 MOA tack-holer!

I suspect he's talking about the American bolt action, not the semi-auto. I'd be disappointed if it wasn't much better than 1 MOA. My first trip with my American standard, just OTC ammo, best group was 3/4.

If you're under 30, take the ring back for a refund and buy the gun. You can thank me later.

You haven't proposed yet, right? So she doesn't know you bought the ring and can return it.

I was on the "waiting list" for one at Cabelas. They said they would call in March when they come in, they never called...
