New rifle!

I work next door to a pawn shop, and found a decent deal Saturday.

A slightly used Mossberg Model 100 in a .270, with a Tasco 6X-24X-40mm scope.

$300 dollars. I went ahead and put $100 down on it, and I plan on having it this coming weekend. I haven't had my own scoped rifle in quite a while, so I'm pretty excited. Downside is, it looks someone used one side of the barrel to sharpen a knife with, but that can be fixed.

This weekend is gonna be a busy one, CHL class saturday, sighting in the new
.270 Sunday morning, then hopefully shooting clays part of the day Sunday.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

Since you're right next to a pawn shop, if an 8" .454 Casull raging bull ever appears in there, let me know!

I'll sure keep my eye out for another one........


3-4 weeks ago there was one...only reason I remember it was because of the unique largeness of the gun. Impressive.

it's not a great deal, i know. I don't know much about Tasco, or scopes in general, but I know that this one is nothing special. I've got a slightly used Leupold that I let my dad borrow a while back, if I don't like that Tasco, i'll switch, or I may look into a new NC Star, like the one on the Remington 700 .308 in the classifieds.

I consider it a good deal because that's what the gun is new, without a scope. At least I got a scope thrown in, basically.

For the CHL i'll be going to Red River Firearms in Sherman.

To zero in the rifle, I'm going to my employers father's place. He's got a target set up at 100 yards. That should give me a good feel for the rifle.

Why? Wanna shoot?
