So i grew up shooting guns my whole life. up until about 2 years ago when i joined the military, yeah i know its pathetic i used to shoot more guns as a civilian. but anyways, i went to national rifle meets/competitions all 4 years of high school and im looking to get back into it, im stationed overseas right now so buying a gun here is not going to happen, i should be rotating back permanently in about a year. looking for a nice target rifle, cheap ammo, maybe use it for popping some gophers, I still got my shotguns for deer hunting so im not worried bout that. i was thinking a savage .17 HMR? ive always wanted one, what else is out there. budget is of little consequence.
