No idea. They just had the price up with the words "price match"

I see that Midway has an optics sale of 10% off. The scope I am looking at is normally $299. Leupold Freedom 4-1240.
Now $269. Good timing.

Congrats on your choice of rifles.  One of my favorite rifles, which is my foul weather rifle, is a plastic stocked, stainless 24" 7 mm RM in a Rem 700 BDL.  I would rather it be a 26" Vanguard, but I don't think it would be worth the change.  Besides, I have sentimental ties to that rifle: it has given me 3 B&C animals.  ;D

Santa my @$$.  lol
I've sold a Remington 7600 .270, Berretta 92fs, 410/.22 overunder Stevens (wood stock), 20 guage bolt action, .22 S & W revolver, and a muzzleloader.
Selling a Buffalo Bill Commemorative Winchester and another Winchester 30-30 to my cousin. Total of about $3,000.

Still need to get the wife her 7mm Rem Mag. Also strongly looking at a BLR Takedown in 7mm Rem Mag. Will eventually pick up two Ruger SP101 .357's (his and hers)

Just done with a bunch of guns I don't use or like that much. Upgrading my "collection" to fewer but better guns.
Consolidating to few calibers.
A few in the collection are for my daughters when they grow up or have too much sentimental value.

And the Walther PPK/s that my wife stole from me 😒 is the most accurate pistol I ever shot.

The extra 2 inches isn't going to give me much more fps. I do like the balance of a longer barrel though.
....and I just wanted to say I have a 26" barrel. ;D

I should really think about thinning the herd too. I have a few that just sit in the safe, oh hell that's a lie, most of my rifles just sit in the safe right now.

Congrats on your purchase.

Dan:You just throw out a very low price to Buds and put any name down as to who has it and they will shoot you their lowest price.

Congratulations on the rifle!!! But maybe you can trade one of your new 357s for the PPK your wife stole??
