Well, my 16 yr. old nephew's eyes DID bug out when he opened the box today. He actually asked me twice if the gun was really his (Mossberg ATR 100). I had purchased the gun a year ago at an auction with the idea of re-selling it, but with the job getting cut, it made a really cheap x-mas present. 22" barrel, box stock. He's probably looking now on the internet at the scopes that I and others here suggested. I gave him a cost comparison on buying loaded ammo or rollin' his own, and he said "that's a no brainer. What do I need to get?" I told him that he needs to buy brass, bullets, powder and a die set. I have everything else. So, I know the next question will be "What bullets and powder do I need to get?" Suggestions anyone? 22" barrel, targets will be paper, crows/woodchucks/coyote, then maybe deer or antelope. We can't use that rifle here in Indiana for deer, but we can for varmints. My cousin lives in Wyoming and I can see a road trip coming in 2009.
