I liken this to the fellow that hunts all his life with Caliber "A-Plain" and decides to book a trophy hunt, and the clerk tells him "Are you going to trust the hunt of a lifetime to Caliber A-Plan? You need Caliber B-SuperWhizBangSmasherExploder". Now there's doubt in the guys head, but really it's just a trick to sell more rifles. How can your modification be safer if you have a 100% safety record already?

    I like the one where the "clerk" convinces the hunter he needs a different rifle for each type of game he hunts. Funny, I've found my '06 works on everything from coyote's to Elk. Never have shot a Moose but I have it by reliable sources it works great on them as well as bear. I have a bunch of ammo for my old '06 loaded with bullets from 130gr to 220 gr.

    I think some people buy those "Trophy Specials" just so they have something to show off at hunting camp (where they only drink and play cards).

    I approve, as my first and favorite rifle is a .30-06. Ever read this one, where the guy takes every game species with the same rifle? https://www.amazon.com/One-Man-Rifle.../dp/1571571698

    Yea, I have other rifle, and am very fond of my 7x57's, but that's because I have too much time on my hands and new rifles are just like a crow collecting "sparklies"....
