I went my my gun shop... DANGEROUS thing to do. A few days ago, they had one of the Savage .17 HMR rifles in stock in the blued barrel with the thumb hole stock... pretty rifle. When I went in I told them I wanted to see the rifle, and they told me they sold it the day after it had came in, but they did have the 93r17BTVS stainless steel model that had come in this morning about 10:30 am.
This is the .17 HMR model with the accutrigger, free floating barrel, ventilated stock, and drips sugar when you tough it. I debated on what to do... I've got a birthday in... about 4 months. We dickered, and they talked, and we dickered and I started to leave... and darn if the rifle didn't leave with me.
I've never shot a .17 before. Heard good reports. Ammo is a little pricey, but specs are impressive. I've got to get rings and a scope before I can shoot it, but the biggest thing is, I've got to tell Momma that this poor little homeless thing followed me home, and in gracious Christian care, I believe we should adopt it. Reckon she'll believe that?
