    No one really needs a rifle like this, do they? ;)

    Traded and sold AR mags to get this. Arrived today.:)

    Savage M12 in .223 w/Leupold 6.5-20x40

    Don't worry it is on the list, and for the very reason you mentioned.

    That rifle has many legitimate uses. Does the left handed nature of the gun decrease the value?

    The proposed AWB in Illinois that was defeated made no distinction between semi-automatic and manual action arms in that it also attacked pump action firearms (though bolt and lever were exempt at that time).

    If the Texas Tower shooting or a similar incident happened again today you would, without a doubt hear calls to limit the magazine capacity and optical zoom factor of bolt action rifles.

    After all, no one needs a 25x scope with finger turrets to kill a deer!

    I imagine the optic will be banned before the rifle.

    I counsel you to remember that all rifles have many legitimate uses. "Fun" (aka "recreation") is and always has been a legitimate use under the law. That rifle is no more legitimate than an AR15 or, for that matter, a registered (or converted to semi-auto) M2HB.

    yep. Anything bigger than 4x and certainly anything with illumination or a mil-dot reticule will be a "military sniper scope" the second somebody decides to go out by climbing a tall building with a hunting rifle and taking shots at the folks below.

    Nice rifle, really nice. But you have the bolt on the wrong side (LOLOL)

    OK, I'm an idiot...
    What does EBSR really stand for...the net doesn't know...or I didn't look in the right place.

    Just a wild guess, but Enhanced Bolt action Sniper Rifle.

    I think you have the E and the R right, at least that's what I guessed from EBR.
    S is probably right too, I was just looking for better than a guess...

    First time to shoot it today.

    20-30mph north wind gusts

    sighted it in using Wammart 55gr .223

    shot at 25, then 75, then 100yds

    between gusts it would shoot nickle size groups at 100yds

    This has the makings of another fun habit. :)

    Didn't that already happen around DC several years ago? Some sniper wannabe was taking pot shots at cars on the highway or something like that. I guess things might be different if it happened in today's political climate.
