    What comes highly recomended?

    My Step-Dad has one, and I remember shooting it when I was little. But I don't remember the brand. I just remember the kick and how fun it was.

    Remington 710. Can be had at Walmart for very little. Initially, everyone said they were junk, but I've read nothing but good stuff about them.

    Sporting Goods store located in the Western half of the US. They sell a lot of milsurps as well as modern day firearms. They're similar to Dunham's which is located in the middle states.

    Sorry, but on the right side of the nation, I don't think those exist.

    Savage by far. The Accutriggers are really nice and they're pretty damn accurate. Only downside I've found is that the sythentic stocks are a bit flimsy.

    The 116 is nice if you want stainless, if you prefer blued then the 111 is a good choice. At when it comes to pricing, Walmart and other chain stores that sell firearms seem to have the best prices.

    Now I'm going to go load some .30-06 shells :big grin:

    I don't remember the exact model, but it was 279.99, i think, for .30-06 or 7mm.

    I really like the look of the stainless. Any drawbacks to it?

    Not that I'm aware of, it really comes down to personal preference.. It's considered to be more weather resistant than regular blued steel, but it'll still rust, so be sure to keep it oiled.
