This is a bad sign....usually everytime I get the itch to "just go look" at a gun that I am interested in, I usually have it within a few weeks. This time it's a .17 HMR. I've been thinking about it for a while but I'm not sure which one to get. LGS has a couple "package" deals, (rifle and scope). I've seen Savage, Marlin and I think a Remington. My question is, is it better to buy the package deal with the scope or to buy just the rifle and pick out my own scope? This is mainly for Groundhogs....Also, what brand do you like best? Thanks.
