Thanks for the replies. I had the chance to handle most of the lineup for size today. I think i am sold on the Competition model with the " slab sided barrel" This will not be a gun used for hunting- although i think i could if i wanted to.
This is going to be a Range piece. I've always wanted one of these.. so now is the time. I've heard that making "race guns" out of these are fairly common- I think i'll shoot it first to see how i like it.. I might not have to do anything to it at all... yeah sure....
I don't know anyone who has one of these who hasn't at least changed the grips,trigger, and or sights. I still have a wee bit of research to do and then i'll make the purchase... in about a week or so. I understand that supersonic ammo is the best bet for these?
I'm not in the Sunshine state but thanks for the offer!! just send up the sunshine and we will call it good!! The runner up was indeed the Hunter model... who know that might be the 2nd one down the road.. I will also look into the Trigger upgrade and the grips too.
