Well compared to dope or drinking in the long run it's a less expensive addiction and my wife would much rather see a new rifle in the gun room or in the truck than pick up empty beer cans or toss out scotch bottles.
I currently own two including my all time favorite rifle which is a Model 70 Sharpshooter in 7mm STW. If I can get a couple of customers to pay up in the next week or so I'll have a third which will be a dedicated LR specialist model for long range ambush hunting.
Once you get to shooting the STW though and understanding what it's capable of given a good barrel and action they are truly amazing.
