    No worries. I never have an issue suggesting someone purchase another firearm. In this case I think it will make your transition into precision shooting more fun.

    I just need to wait 30 days before I may purchase another, thanks to the state of California

    That sucks. 30 days between buying long arms. Unreal. So glad I am out of that place.

    Applies to any firearm, sadly.

    I like California a lot, but this is one area where things are just too draconian and over regulated. In my ever so humble opinion, of course

    My issues with California include over regulation on many, many facets of peoples lives, high taxes, high cost of living for an ever declining quality of life, traffic, over regulation again because it can't be overstated and politics. California has the goofiest politics in the country.

    I hear you. I do still like the weather and the friends I have here

    Cost of living, and traffic are both rather ridiculous

    I agree, weather and friends were the two good things about Cali. Outside of that there wasn't much to hold me there.

    Here it is, finally brought it home the other day after the $#@$@# 10 day waiting period:



    I'm absorbing as much knowledge as I can about how to properly place the scope, and then bore sight it. Once that's done, it will be time for a trip to the range to zero in the rifle at 100 yards.

    Usually they will bore sight the rifle for you. What rings did you get? Once you have the rings and mount where you want them be sure to use Lock-tite on the screws.

    Yeah, they did have signs in the store about that, but I got impatient and wanted to get out of there. Kind people in that store, but everything seems to move at a tectonic pace.

    I got Browning's own rings. I also got a 300 WM cartridge with a laser inside, thinking that I could bore sight the optic myself.
