OK, I found a shop w a Ruger #1 A in .30-06, red pad w decent wood. Not great, but not totally bland either. I like #1's. The ol lady needed more mercury glass green bulbs for the tree, so said lets hit a small town w antique stores. One of the two choices was the one we the gunshop having said Ruger. Farther away, i have to work tonight, so we went other direction. All antique strores gone downtown (yay!). Hit gunshop over there and...........Weatherby MkV, like new, walnut............but not .257 WM. If it was I'd have bought it right then. Nope, this one 7mm WM. If I bought it that'd cover me for any out west stuff. Decisions decisions.
