Not going to make this long and drawn out.....
I Live in the "Communist Republic of California-San Diego Territory". I have have been shooting guns safely for 20+ years. Pistols, shotguns, old mosins, and and the occasional slingshot.
I purchased property in Wyoming about 10 years ago with plans to escape CA. We have made several trips up to our property over the years. But, in a couple weeks I will be heading up for the purpose of downing an Elk, deer or pronghorn...all would be great.
In preparation for this trip I was able to buy a new Rem 700 SPS .300 WSM. Got it home and installed a bipod, Kodiak sling , loupy scope rings...for the Millett TRS 4-16x50 scope...ordered from OpticsPlanet....over 2 weeks ago...still hasn't shipped...and WAS IN STOCK!
Anyways I am looking forward to going hunting being as I have never hunted big game before. We will see what happens!
Thanks for all the great info!
