  1. The right tool for the job, most of my guns are older with wood stocks including a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight 30-06 with Leupold scope and beautiful wood. I have used that rifle for years on deer in Texas and my son has carried it hunting Elk in Colorado, it’s a nice looking rifle that works well. A couple of years ago it came back to live in my gun safe when my son wanted a better rifle for distance..

    Now for spending a week in the mountains which I am too old and won’t do, I have to agree with my son. His Elk Rifle now is a Bergara and instead of a 1.5 to 2 MOA using my production wood stock gun, the Bergara with its fiberglass stock, good bedding and free floated barrel and decent ammo can shoot touching cloverleafs at 100 yards and that Bergara has all of the charm of a 3/8″ Black & Decker variable speed drill.

  2. My favorite evaluation comes from perpetual cynic Michael Sarrazin’s character in the film GUMBALL RALLY (referring to a ’23 T with yuge slicks in back, ten-speed tires afront, and chrome everything, in response to the owner’s “She’s a beaut, eh?”):

    “Looks like a juke-box…”
