I find myself carrying my .243 Win, Tikka T3 Lite when on long walks out back of the house. It not only shoots great, but so easy to lug around. Still hoping to shoot a coyote with it, but don't plan on night hunting in cold Maine winters.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
