    Parker Hale 30-06

    Ive been offered a parker hale 30-06, it is in really good nic. Are they a decent gun? Its not a safari model. Cant find model stamped anywhere. Looks to be 30 odd years old. How much would be a deal. And how much would be normal/expensive. Haha

    Yeh that sounds the about right. I paid $600.00 for a synthetic stock P&H .270 with a bottom end Tasco scope on it a few years back. It had had a hard life and was fairly beat up but it is still accurate and I have shot quite a few deer with it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
