And lucky for you, they are easy to learn! Pic is from Saturday at the range from my Savage 300 WSM
with a factory barrel. Was checking 100 yard zero for spring bear. Took it out of the case, shot this 3 shot group and put it back in the case. I was aiming at the bottom point on the diamond.
I ONLY buy USA made guns and I will NOT buy a gun made in NY.
The big problem in America is that it is ruled by the dollar and that always wins. Remington knows that shooters will continue to buy their products as long as they are revered and priced competitively. Seems most Americans have no guts when it comes to the almighty dollar in their pocket. Remington knows this and this is why they have no fear going after contracts and making their products in a state that does not support the 2nd Amendment.
It's kind of like the made in China thing, we all complain about it and buy the stuff anyway. Another example is out of state hunting in Colorado. At first out of state hunters said that they would not hunt in Colorado after the bands, but the Colorado Dept. of Tourism just laughed at that. They said that out of state hunters will continue to come to Colorado no matter what because the licensing system and fees are so easy in Colorado. And sure enough, I read all kinds of threads on this site about hunters (gun owners) planning their first hunting trip to Colorado!
We can be our own worst enemy at times. But I can guarantee you one thing... you will never ever, in you life time, find me hunting with a f###ing Remington in f###ing Colorado.
