Some nice rigs to choose from there. Would love to get my hands on a Blaser. I'll be sporting a Sako Rem 260 topped with a Swaro Z3.

You guys have some fancy set-ups. Most of my guns are 30+ years old, but still shoot perfect.

I do plan on changing out my stock on one of my .270's in the near future and possibly putting a muzzle break on just for the heck of it.

Yep my 270 is 30 years old and my all time favorite. Had the muzzlebreak put on last month so that i could run the suppressor on it. The amount of recoil reduction is phenomenal, but boy is it LOUD without the suppressor!

I'll probably just be toting my ugly ol' Ruger canoe paddle .280. If I want to get fancy, I might carry my Ruger #1 in 7X57.

Me- Remington 700 in .308
Wife- Ruger 77 heavy barrel 243. This gun has been used by my daughter and me for about 15 years. If there was a notch in it for every animal killed, the stock would have been whittled away by now.

For bow season I will be using my Wicked Ridge cross bow.
I plan on using my 1874 sharps 45-90 on culls and does.
I will hunt mule deer in New Mexico with my Savage 7 mm STW.

I ordered a couple pairs of 4'x8' acoustic foam sheets off the internet for about $80 and lined box blind with them. For the folding shooting rest, I hinged an L-shaped piece of plywood wrapped in foam padding and some vinyl. Got a retractable and adjustable folding leg from an RV parts website. All in for right around $100.

If the 257 gets back from a face lift it will be that and a #1 rsi in 30-06. If not a 270 featherweight as and the rsi.
