Location: United States
Been lurking here for awhile and thought I would introduce myself and pick your brains.
First off I am a 34yo police officer in central missouri about 45 min west of St Louis(the county I am in is known for meth labs and kidnappers, go figure). I am married to a paramedic(we see alot of one another) and we have a son that will be 2 in sept.
Now to the good stuff. OK OK the family is good stuff also. I wanted to start shooting something other than handguns for fun. I did some horse tradin' and came up with a Remington 700P in .308 Win. I know the owner of the rifle and he only fired about 150 rounds through it. Unfortunatly I couldn't get him to part with a scope in the trade. I am going to by a SWFA 10x42 , ain't payin' and extra $100.00 for another knob on the side when they will "give " me a free one on the back!! I was wondering what rings and bases you might reccomend for this setup? This will be strictly for punching paper(and a lil bragging) with my father. I need something else to do with him as I don't enjoy hunting deer. I know I know for shame right? Flame away Just don't thrill me the way hearing a longbeard shake the trees in the spring.
Sorry so longwinded its a family trait. Any suggestions on rings and bases would be a big help.
