I know I swore off of buying rifles this year and Lord knows, I have been pretty good about running the other way, but tonight the overwhelming forces of Temptation and Greed turned me from the path of righteousness.
I went to the City this afternoon and visited one of the large sports shops. There I saw, damn my eyes, a Tikka T-3 Stainless .223 with a 1-10" twist. The price was $650 US. I could feel the yearning the minute I picked it off the rack. No sooner had I hoisted it to my shoulder but a salesman was at my elbow whispering to me about their new store credit card; Six months same as cash on purchases over $500. I like six months same as cash. Then he says that the first purchase made with that card gets an automatic $15 off the price. Then he says that, additionally, any firearms purchase gets another $25 off right off. I must have blacked out at that point. I came to my senses a few blocks from the store with the Tikka box in the back seat blocking the view of my rear-view mirror and 80 rounds of Federal .223 in a bag next to it.
I need help...~Muir
