Savage Arms makes some pretty good quality rifles, accurate too. While I'm not a fanatical fan of Savage I do own a couple of their rifles and think value for the money they are a very good rifle. I've also fired many Savage rifles owned by friends and family from vintage to current production. All my experiences with those guns have been very positive.
I hjave heard a lot of good about Savage rifles, just never owned one. My son has one and it is a very good shooter. I suspaet that JCalhoon will check in on this, He's pretty much the resident Savage man. He shoot's 1000 yds competation with a Savage. You can probably find a photo os his rifle on the "Long Range Shooting" thread.
I am a Savage fan.
Got a single shot .22 I have had since I was 10. Still takes it's share of game off the deck.
Also have 2 Modle 99's best lever actions ever made (my opinion)
-one in 308
-one in 300 Savage
I like that Savage has been about innovating new features for their standard models. The accutrigger and now the accustock were good additions. Their 10-BAS series is also a reasonable value and different from most other rifles on the market for the same price point.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
