    No comment - I will let you know what I buy - It might be one of these it might not be. What it will be is my taste and what I feel comfortable with. After all I do drive a Skoda (Yeti)

    So not a Blaser then??

    Notwithstanding the scoring mirrors little the votes disclosed within the thread this is proof-positive the site harbors many more loden cape-wearing members than are repapered to be open about their proclivity so hopefully a few more will now feel able to “come out” in the posts ahead.

    I wonder how different the poll might have been if there had been a Tikka T3 in the list.

    The Blaser is outside of my budget by a mile! To be fair if I had that kind of money I would probably go for a custom build. If I get those 7 numbers tonight Baldie will literally be getting a call to arms!

    Looking forward to confusing myself further at the CLA.

    what do you mean by that??? I was out last month in a short sleeved shirt with a thin jacket with me.... As soon as the sun went down, I put on that jacket but froze my ass off... At the meeting point afterwards, the forest meister showed up in a long loden coat looking all toasty... Got on ebay found one that'd fit me (took a lot of sheep shearing)... All I need is a big leather belt and a helmet and I'll look like Schultz from Hogan's Heros, but I'll be warm next time out.....

    you won't go wrong with a tikka t3 as a first rifle IMHO ticks all the boxs
    the new compact one looks very nice that someone pointed out on your other thread

    A Blaser or whatever floats your boat can follow later on if you ever wish
    don't know how far you are from Steve Beaty at ivythorne but top guy with lots
    to choose from I've just bought a sako for an estate rifle from him
    regards pete

    Not far from Steve - he helped me when I was having initial gun mounting issues on clays.
