women/youth gun suggestion
My sister's ex-husband took her .243 with him. I loaned her one to antelope hunt with because I didn't realize she didn't have a rifle anymore. I am thinking of getting her a good, but affordable rifle for Christmas. She shoots once in a blue moon, but likes to antelope hunt once in a while. She has a couple young kids. The oldest is 6, so it would be a while, but I would like something they could learn on too. I am thinking a .243 like a savage axis, ruger American, marlin xs7 or something like that. I would probably spend $200-300. Any thoughts? She needs something that would be reasonably accurate. She is a good shot, but I don't have a lot to spend on it.
