FOUND ONE :D

Just bought her this pretty Ruger American 30.06 today, they threw in the Bushnell scope for free

She LOVES it!!! Now to just get her out in the field with it
I have a gel pad shoulder piece she can use with it if needed.

I think you made a great choice, the American is getting great reviews on this site as both accurate and a great deal. I look forward to seeing pictures next fall of her first kill with it.

Thanks! You got it!
The only thing I don't like about it, is that the bolt doesn't lock down into place (neither does the one on my own Ruger....which tends to walk itself out of place when hiking rough terrain) but a good ol hair tie helps keep it in place.

Good rifle choice, but plan on replacing that scope. The Bushnell scopes they put on the "package" deals are poor at best - many won't hold zero after only a box or two of shooting. Bushnell does make some great scopes, but only when you get up into their higher-end lines.
