    My main interest has been in Archery for the last 50 years. Think it's time to
    look at some new avenues and long range hunting has knocked at the door.


    I am looking at the Savage 111 Long Range Rifle, 7mm Rem Mag as a beginning tool. Comes with a Brake and Cheek Support, will add a Tact
    scope. Will start asking questions from there.

    Welcome to LongRangeHunting. Sounds like you're on the right track for a first gun.

    I found setting up a member intro is a bit more trickey than picking out a weapon. especially when you have more specs on range ballistics, powder
    and trajectile and it takes a computer to sort it all out.

    I'm over at Prineville, OR we have a couple of ranges I'm checking out.
    1000 yds and better. I was a resident of your fair city for some 34 years.
    I do like the high desert.

    1HUNTER,

    numbers numbers numbers. didn't change the calendar, hahaha, if you don't care, I will post-date a check for the 24th of this month. I was refiguring my budget/bills. im going to be pretty busy for the week after payday, getting ready to go north and see my daughter and grankids. don't want to be distracted and temporarily forget about the scope.
    ever since the motorcycle crash in 01, ive had some problems/challenges with my short term memory. if I focus on something intensely enough long enough, I remember things.
    broke my neck in 5 places and cracked open my skull. was a nasty day.
    I finally quit riding motorcycles 3 years ago. sure do miss it when summer is here.

    if you don't like this idea, that's ok too.
    I forgot to get your phone number the other day. and I havnt been able to access Hotmail to get your email. forgot to write it down. my phone is--360-470-4392
