Re: Trying to help a buddy.

A buddy of mine is trying to get into the shooting game. Now the guy's wife has him by the you know what's so cheap is the word of the day. I have managed to convince him to get a savage model 12 in .308, this should give him an accurate enough gun. However I'm having a hell of a time helping him on his scope. I have heard that the Bushnell 3200 fixed 10x40 is a good entry level scope. Try to remember that cheap is the word. I would like to help him get into shooting (god knows I can always use more shooting buddies) but he is whipped something fierce, so I don't think I will be able to get him into anything more expensive than the Bushnell. Anybody have any suggestions?
P.S. This gun will likely not see competition but will be used as primarily a medium range hunting rifle.
