    Nice rifle. I like those Kimbers.

    Are there any woodchucks and rifle woodchuck hunting in NJ?

    While my slow internet service loads the image, let me tell you that while your new toy may appeal to yourself, I'm really getting tired of all these overbore, composite-stocked, soulless rifles...now i'm sure this new rifle of yours is a tackdriver, but really? Black plastic and stainless steel? People today have no appreciation for something that is truely beautiful, and this wreck of a rifle can't...

    Oh, wait. Image is up.

    I'm going to go sit in time out for a bit. Nice rifle.

    The woodchucks all live in my backyard.

    Don't hunt, but woodchucks would make a good target.

    Beautiful rifle. One day I'm going to get rid of my old Savage and step up to a really nice rifle like that. But I guess then I'd have to change my screen name, so it'll have to wait. Seriously though, awesome rifle, the critters around you are in trouble.

    Very nice, like the Kimber but the 257 Roberts is the best part...

    Well said on the .257 Roberts being the best part; I'm a 25-06 enthusiast myself; but I have many times thought it would be nice to own a 257 Roberts. I noticed one of the ammo manufacturer's were loading 257 Roberts+P rounds. Awesome!!

    That's is indeed a fine looking rifle.

    Thanks for all the compliments.

    This will be a range rifle as I do not hunt.

    While I use a .25-06, good ol' Quarter-Bob is a heckuva round.

    Enjoy.

    I honestly never looked at kimber rifles before but this makes me think.
