Aren't we all? Well, most of us. My thinking is production class may be a better spot for a beginner like me. But if we all get bunched in due to numbers it is a non issue, plus they all might still kick my butt in production class anyway. But yea, price is an issue not just for production class reasons. It is what it is. I would love the rifle I linked to earlier (Over 4K), but that would be a huge investment for me and would be wasted if I did not like PRS and did not continue to shoot it. I imagine neither the Seekins or John Hancock rifles would not limit me, and that I would be the limiting factor, at least at first, if not for some time. Financially I can handle a 2K rifle a lot easier than a 4K rifle, especially since an optic must be added. Great stuff so far, and I really appreciate it. Looking forward to more feedback.
