    He'd been asking me to buy it for awhile. Looked at it last night, and threw $300 at him.

    He took it.

    You got a heck of a bargain! .25-06 is a flat shooting round, and you shouldn't have too hard a time finding it. Accuracy of the round is well known, too.

    Every local wally world I've been to around here has it on the shelf, everytime I check on ammo.

    In my humble opinion ---that is not a factory stock -- looks custom-- that said--- still a great buy as noted.

    I believe that is a 700BDL, those had the Monte Carlo stock, which would make the stock factory correct.
    The 700ADL did not have the Monte Carlo stock.
    BDL sold for a little more than the ADL.
    I am going on my aging memory from 5 years as a retail buyer in the gun and sporting goods business, that was back in the 80's.

    Wow, any way you slice it, that's a good deal.

    IIRC, that's a necked down .30-'06 cartridge - aught to shoot flatter than hammered whale shit. Course, it's going to kick like the '06 too. That's a nice classic stock design as well with the Ebony forend.

    You could hang it on the wall and just look at it.

    Yea you stole it. It looks like a BDL, which is the drop floor plate..but it has that little notch above the bottom metal. Detachable magazine? :scratch
    The 25-06 is great,I have built customs in 25, 6mm, 6.5mm,and 338-06. They all will shoot!

    looks like a great time. I love shooting things, rather than paper.

    Pow is cool, Pow-TING is better


    Hey wasn't it you that picked up an LCR a couple months ago? .357 IIRC, how are you liking it?

    yup . loving it . nice and compact , fits well in the pants . comes in somewhere around 20 oz. loaded with holster .
    I compared it size wise to my uncles .380 body guard and they are very similar in size .

    .375 kicks back into the web of the hand pretty good , to the point of soreness if you shoot it alot , so I usually practice with .38 to draw, aquire and shoot on target , then finish up the session with 10 or 15 rounds of .357 , also more economical that way , I am having a hard time finding .357 target ammo around here , what I can find is the 100 round boxes of hollow point but its $53 - $58 where as the .38 is around $27 - $30 for 100 rounds.

    bottom line , yes I would buy it again and would recommend it .
    certainly as a carry gun , but not really a gun you would spend the day target shooting with .

    I just picked up a S&W M&P 9C to keep in the handgun safe for the wife. I am so impressed by it I'm probably going to pick another up just for me...

    One of reasons metallic silhouette shooting is so much fun.

    I got one too and it is one of my favorites - I have smaller hands. I still want to try a Shield to see what it's like for a better carry piece.

    the way is should have been when i bought it the first time.

    it'll never be anything like either of these two and it won't shoot any better than before, but it looks like it should to me now.

    oh, i drug home an all stainless 10/22 kinda thing yesterday. you could barely cycle the action. it was in it's original carrying case and the padding had broken down clogging the living shit outta the poor thing. cleaned it up, put a charging handle out of a 10/22 in it and shazam.

    Izzat an AMT Lightning??? They only made those a short while until Ruger made them stop for patent infringement. I'm surprised AMT even tried at all.
    That gun is on my must buy list if I ever find one. I have a thing for SS guns:evil

    yep, amt lightning. the charging handle rod is also stainless in these, and while cool, it didn't "slide" for shit. with a clean action and a ruger charging handle with ruger rod and spring it cycles like a, well, like a volquartsen. :lol3
