    Where is the best place to find used hunting rifles?

    I'm looking to pick up a .270 or .308 for pig and deer hunting. A straight shooter, nothing too fancy, just the right price. How does one go about finding something quality?

    Keep watching on here. Don't be shy to put up your budget $ too. There are enough serious guys on here who always make a comment if something being offered is overpriced or otherwise. If otherwise you've just gotta be quick!!!

    Good to know, cheers guys! I actually didn't know there was buying/selling allowed on the forum. Appreciate the heads up!

    My budget is probably about $800-1000. I'm not a rich man. The stuff in the stores at that price is pretty poor so I'm hoping I can get a more quality used item for a good price. Am I crazy?

    You will find something at that price, does that include the scope in the price?

    Depends on the scope I guess. If I could get a package like that with good optics I'd be quite stoked. But I realize the optics might have to be an independent purchase

    That would get you going you might find it will do every thing you want if not just upgrade the scope at a later date
