Re: Does anyone else have this problem ?
By problem, you mean not parting with or modifying a favorite rifle?
Yes, have a Ruger varmint 22-250 I bought in 1978, first rifle I ever bought myself(was 16 at the time) have killed untold groundhogs, crows, and other vermin with it. Still shoots great with my hand loads. Rifle has been beat up and definitely has wear marks, even tho I have 2 other 22-250's in the case this rifle gets the most work. Yea, hard to give up on or change a favorite.
