I wanted to vent a little frustration I had today. My wife and I had to travel into town for the day and I thought it was a good time to check out my next scope which will be a Nightforce 5-22x50 Moar reticle. After looking at scopes I decided to head to a somewhat local gun shop and discuss with a smith about my savage 110 300 win mag. I had asked him if he worked on savages to which his reply was, "no, there are better guns to work on but I can." I told him that my plan DOWN THE ROAD was to replace the barrel and at that time have him true and time the action and install a barrel. He goes off saying savages are not worth the time to build up and there are lots better options out there. ( I can't argue that). He then goes on saying that putting any time or money in my rifle will not improve the accuracy much and savages aren't designed to be real accurate. At this point I felt he may as well say my rifle is piece of crap and leave. So my closing remarks him were thanks and I left. Maybe he has some points but from a business point I think it was rude to downgrade a persons rifle. I realize I could put the money I would spend in this towards a new rifle, so maybe I'll just burn the barrel up on this learning and practicing then purchase a new custom from someone on here that I have been researching very closely.
