New gun

Postby patinlouisiana » Sat Sep 02, 2006 8:06 pm

It has been a hectic year. My wife bought me a stainless Encore 30-06 for christmas last year and I finally got to shoot it today. It looks like it is going to be a tack driver. My last 100 yard group could be covered with a half dollar. :P

Hey Pat.

Welcome to the forum. Any wife that buys their husband a gun, sounds like a keeper :)

Welcome Pat....Sounds like a fine shooting rifle! What kind of scope do you have on it?

I put a "Limb Saver" recoil pad on it and was very impressed.
Feels like my 30-30 not a 30-06.
