I havent had the luck in my 40 yrs of hunting alone to excel to the level of Marty and Huck. But I did hit a gun home run recently. :D Bought 4 newer guns in last 4 weeks. Found GREAT couldntsayno deals on newish .44mag, .45auto, .223 LH Savage, and 7mm RemMag Browning BLR, and made a new friend (a great rancher).

The Browning BLR already has elk blood on it, so I am hoping that blessing finally brings me some luck. The rancher that I bought it off of got him a elk last yr at 600 measured yards with one shot using some brand of factory ammo with Scirocco or SST bullets. :yes:

I also bought the .223 off the rancher friend but he hadnt had time to do more than sight in since he got it. Took took the new 3-9x40 Busnell off it and put it on wife's 30-06 to replace hers that broke internally last elk season. I put a 4-16x40 Tasco High County on the .223 and cannot hardly contain myself til I get out and put the whup_ss on some coyotes(they kill wayyyy more elk & mulies than I do).

I guess thats enuff gun buyin for 07. I need now to work out time to shoot em and get em zeroed. Then just hunt...

Wow Silvertip that is the way to start out a new year. Adding a few to the stable and then spending some range time getting them tamed to your liking sounds like real fun. Sure hope your 7mm is as accurate as the ones Eric and I have.
