Well, I went to the LGS to get a Savage Precision Carbine yesterday and they were sold out.
Rather than not have my .308, I decided to pick up a Ruger American at Walmart. They were down to the display in .308 and it has a 1/4" barely noticeable scratch on the receiver so they took an extra 10% off, otherwise I'd have gone with the 30-06 they also had. I got the rifle for $343 out the door. That should keep me entertained and it shouldn't take too long to re-save that amount.
