    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Yep I was watching a program on the Discovery channel about Alaska where a guy was shooting in his 30-06 prior to hunting season, the amount of flex in the action/scope in super slow was a real eye opener, made me think about what I'm using on my rifles.
