Yesiree, every one of those shots will put meat on the table. I don't own any Ruger rifles, but I do have a SR1911 .45 that is one of my more accurate pistols. They build a solid firearm.

Cracking/checking on a finish is most often a sign that it was not applied properly or a poor quality/defective product was used. Maybe Weatherby will stand behind it. Couldn't hurt to ask.

While that sounds encouraging, the huge number of Beto signs I saw last October in both the Houston and Dallas areas was scary to say the least. Enough that I was pretty concerned in November of that tool possibly winning.

King is correct about Texas. We have droves of lefties moving here from California and bringing their stupid liberal baggage with them. They are fleeing their state because they ran it into the ground - now they want to destroy other states they land in that didn't invite such B.S. Austin succumbed to the liberal invasion years ago and now the entire state is in danger of being ruined by these delusional idiots if they keep coming. There have been anti-gun bills being introduced here recently by these commies - we can only hope none of them pass. Then there's Robert "Beto" O'rourke trying to create a disaster of our state. Don't even get me started on that worthless a-hole.

Gotta love the way the guy posing with his deer has the muzzle pointed with the bolt closed (and who knows if it's loaded or the safety is on). If there was an accidental discharge, the least that would happen is he'd never, ever hear out of that ear again.

I think the MK V is a fine choice. How could he not be pleased? I would consider a .270 Weatherby for caliber as an all-round rifle unless he will eventually be hunting some bigger stuff than deer.

Zonie, I wouldn't call you paranoid at all. Prepared is more like it. If you own a weapon, you may as well have it handy. What a travesty if you get attacked, have a weapon, but it's far from where it needs to be to do you any good. If the door is breached and thugs storm in, in most cases, you have several seconds at best to get it in hand. Granted, the odds are small that your door (or mine) will get kicked in, but the chance is there, regardless. People in neighborhoods where stuff has gone down often say on the news, "this is a nice quiet neighborhood, nothing ever happens here." Until now. People could say I'm "fire paranoid" because I keep a fire extinguisher in my pantry and have fire insurance on my house (of course I'm not, again, just prepared). Well... you get the idea.

Maybe it's a male hormonal thing. Bucks are horny as hell too. Check out this funny video.

Just adding my 2 cents here on the privacy of this. In my case, nearly everybody who knows me, including my employer, know that I carry. My employer many years ago actually said they would like me to. I'm licensed with the Texas DPS, so it's not exactly classified information, and probably the same in most states. If it's legal for you do carry, why care who knows. However, I don't carry open for a number of reasons, including letting criminal elements know in advance. I've even had people tell me they feel safer when I'm around, knowing that I'm armed and trained. Bottom line is I guess I don't really give a rat's a__ who knows! LOL.

I do recall now hearing about this some time ago and basically forgot about it. I agree that maybe the problem has been overstated, as I don't personally know of any cases.

I think all of the comments here hit the nail on the head about the "author" of this drivel crap article. It is being passed off as journalism and unfortunately, people who don't know better will believe that BS. Hmmm, I wonder if that little puss "writer" works at Dick's sporting goods.

There was a recent post about people hating on Weatherby and I just happened to come across this article today, which totally rags on the larger Weatherby calibers (scroll down a bit). I think it's mostly Bulls__t by somebody who really doen't know as much as they think they do. Check it out and see what you think.
