Re: Taking the wife to WY!
I understand everyone's desire to "own more guns", but if she is not going to shoot a lot, why spend all the money on another rifle, another scope, more ammo, more dies, more components etc etc (I'm assuming that the 6.5 is not the only rifle the poster owns ???) then it seems like a bit of a waste. Maybe she insists she wants "her own" rifle, but I would sooner loan my wife one of my rifles that is already outfitted or possibly the same one I am carrying before just adding more to the mix.
Thats because that money could otherwise buy a nice self defense piece for her, or a 9mm/45 carbine for home defense or a 22 mag rifle with an illuminated scope and predator light for shooting critters that go bump in the night...
