Couple buddies from MA came up for a ride yesterday. I'm in NH. After hitting Makris for lunch and a drink they wanted to checkout the Concord Gun show, so I obviously tagged along. I'm not a big fan of gun shows because the last one I went to years ago was in CT and it sucked. While killing time waiting for my buddies, I walked by a Savage LRPV in .22-250 for $600. While I was looking at it the dealer said I could have it for $500. Damn, damn, damn was all I could think because we were on the Harleys. The local police officer and I were talking about it and he said just strap it over your back. They don't "like" it, but they see it and it's not illegal. God bless New Hampshire. Was kicking myself all last night for not buying a sling and throwing over my shoulder as the officer suggested. Hopped it the truck this morning and showed up just after the doors to the show opened and the gun was still there. It isn't any longer! Just bore scoped it and looks like a typical box of ammo at best safe queen. Zero chamber wear or throat erosion. Still has all the typical chatter marks of most factory barrels. No where even close to being broken in. Not planning to keep the barrel and maybe not even the stock, but I was sure in the market for a Target Action. Pretty happy with the score and no transfer fees or shipping to deal with!
