Like many other shooters, I was afraid that if Hillary Clinton won the election, we'd be in for massive new gun restrictions with all the trimmings. I'm very glad that didn't come to pass. To celebrate, I decided to buy myself a rifle I've wanted for some time: a Ruger American Predator model chambered in .308 Winchester (a.k.a. 7.62x51mm. NATO).
It feels very well balanced in the hands, and the adjustable trigger will help with accuracy. I'll put a Nikon 4x12 BDC scope on it, and see how it performs. (Thanks to a knockout ammo deal last year, I have plenty of rounds to shoot through it.)
I'm looking forward to some range time. Being almost winter in Texas, I'll have to put up with days in the chilly 55°F to 65°F range, but that's one of the hardships of living here. Eat your heart out, friends in more northerly climes!
