    Ask for a test shoot and make your mind up after that.
    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!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Picture, condition of bore and caliber. Then does it have rings and how does it shoot.

    Go.

    Shit unless that thing has a knot in the barrel and can't hit anything fifty metres from the shoulder then I can't see how you can go wrong ..... "buy it"
