Just looked at gunsamerica for prices on the 1903 and higher anschutz and they were outrageous.
If I were to get into the sport I would definately start out with somehting like the kimber which is a third of the going price for the anschutz. Just my 2 cents. I would rather spend the 600 to get strated and later spend more to get an anschitz than buying the anschitz first and finding that I am either not that caliber of shooter or the sport doesn't interest me.
