Re: Rifle choices for the wife

Buy her whatever you want to shoot. I bought my wife a new 7mm BAR Browning for Christmas 25 years ago. I am still living in the dog house and she bought me a new dishwasher for my birthday.

Re: Rifle choices for the wife

I have a CZ 452 17 HMR that shoots bug holes. Ammo is a little spendy for a rimfire but cheaper than the center fires. It is a great rifle to tune up your wind doping skills to get ready for your long range big bore but you can do it cheaply at 200 yards instead of 1000. I'm saying they don't like wind much.......rich

I am in the same process.

My choice so far is a .204

We are very close to this point now.
