I can relate to that.

I'm with you there too. When it comes to most used firearms, you can almost bet that they haven't had more that a couple hundred rounds or so run through them. If they weren't physically abused on the exterior and were kept cleaned and lubricated the money is well spent on a used weapon.

My oldest son and I were talking about this issue just recently because with the current political climate we are seeing some pretty stiff prices for some of these mid grade rifles. I have seen some sellers putting prices on the low end Weatherby Vanguards that rival the high end models. I guess they figure they can take advantage of an unknowing buyer by just touting them as a "Weatherby". Anytime you can find a firearm that is in the calibre/guage you might like, is in good shape and has a price that your agreeable with, it just makes sense to add it to your collection. High end firearms don't necessarily put meat on the table any better than some cheaper models and putting meat on my table is what I go hunting for. A few years ago I finally got the T/C Encore that I had been wanting and now I will be looking to purchase the barrels for the calibres I really want to expand my collection without having to buy different guns but every now and then you just happen upon a gun you just can't turn down. IMHO of course. @--0--0118
