Who has one and how do they like them??
I have a decent shotgun and a 30/06 that is a very good rifle in it's own right. However every once in a while I get an invite to do a little varmint hunting, and In the future I will probably entertain some Antelope hunting with a firearm… I know the 30/06 is a capable rifle for these as well . However there is a little better and flatter shooting as well
What got me thinking is is time to upgrade the Muzzle Loader and the Encore looks nice and just about the same as the Omega as far as capabilities. BUT the option of switching out the barrel for a few of these other "odd ball " adventures appeals to me . It's hard to have a dedicated varmint rifle when you may only varmit hunt a weekend or two every year.. Or perhps Antelope every other. With a new calibers barrel going for 2-3 hundred it seems like an economical way to have what I need on hand when the desire arises
The Single shot does not bother me as MOST of the time it's dead or runs and the break open design only takes a few seconds to reload but I want accuracy and dependability.
So How does everybody like there's?? Any problems.. Do the scopes really hold there -0- like Thompson says they do?? any other quirks?? I hear the hammer springs are considered a little on the weak side for example
I know the Contender seems to be just about the standard in a Hunting Handgun and has MANY devoted fans .. However I don't know much about the rifle
