    Hi.
    Im the new kid on the block so please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ron so either my screen name or my real name is ok. I live in Iowa and am almost ready to retire. Not by choice.

    Ijust purchased a new Savage MKII FV from Bud's and am very satisfied with the service so far. If I get the gun on the projected delivery date, not counting Sunday (I see movement in tracking on Saturday) it took 4 days from my order date. I should get the rifle Tuesday. Now that is service, and shipping was included in the price.

    Ok, here is some info I found at the Savage site pertaining to cleaning and breaking in a new rimfore barrel. I know there will be posts saying break in is not necessary, but, what can it hurt? I am all for burnishing and removing burrs and cleaning out ALL the factory goo, so I will take the instruction to heart. Here is the link for the page:

    I am just getting into using real paper targets instead of beer cans and pill bottles to sight in on. That is how I always did it and I always got my squirres, rabbits and groundhogs. Now I cant find any here in Iowa where i live but if I drive 50-60 miles i may find a few squirrels. They're still my fave.

    I am thinking about a trip to Texas for Hogs. Anysuggestions for caliber and area to hunt? I am anxious to see if the hogs in Texas are as big as some of the Photoshopped pics show they are. : )

    Have a good day all...I'm off to the range. The scope on my Marlin 60 keeps wanting to slip and I am having a heck of a time. I put a new set of rings on it so today I test them out. Wish me luck.
