Is there a website?

If not, try and help me out, if you will:
2006 Weatherby Vanguard Youth combo .22-250 Remington. 20" barrel with adult synthetic stock, youth stock is made of wood but painted black and has a slight chink. Less than 500 rounds through it, no corrosion from what I can see, action safety and trigger work very well. Also has a two-piece base on it and will throw in basic medium 1" rings and whatever bullets I have.

I've had this gun for over a decade and have killed 20 or so animals with it. Lil Chit ain't as little any more smile

Thanks in advance.

Hang onto your first rifle. The memories will be worth far more than the modest amount it will bring. Use it to teach someone else.

Yep. I pretty much regret every rifle I have sold.

I'll probably sell it to a club member so I'll see it most of the time...lol

Or my uncle for his grandson, who's just getting into hunting.

Exactly this. If I had to sell every gun I had I'd be pissed but ok as long as I had my mdl 7 243 my dad got me when I was 6

Are you looking into another rifle? If so, why not rebarrel? Some gunsmiths shy away from Weatherby actions due to the threading, but there are some around that will do it, that way you're not getting rid of your first gun. P_102

Isn't that more expensive than just getting a new rifle?

My dad said the same thing as most of y'all and I agree with the "first gun" sentiment; I gave away my first airgun and I kinda miss it lol. So I'll probably just put a cheaper scope on it if/when I get the new rifle.

Thanks for the help y'all.
