What sort of weight are the rifles you blokes are carrying? I don't mean hiking, but just your general walking/stalking guns. All my guns have heavy barrels and varmint style stocks and weigh in at atleast 10lb because I always thought "that's what good rifles have". But now I'm kind of sick of carrying heavy guns which don't come to the shoulder easily and I think more traditional hunting style rifles maybe just as good. Rifles made by Gunwerks and Greybull etc don't look so big and heavy and they pull off some good shots. Plus I am a bit over the whole "tacticool" look and might start changing some of my gear back to needs rather than wants.
