    Well I bought a non-tactical rifle today.

    Well had to spend the day in Springfield . Son needed to go doctor and we had to take an elderly lady to her doctor appt. After my son's appointment I dropped my wife and the elderly lady off at her doctor's office. We went to Gander mountain and looked at some handguns . Afterwards we went to Scheels and was looking at the used rifles first. There was a lovely used Rem 700Bdl 30-06 with leupold mounts and rings and a cheap bushnell scope. I've wanted a 700 30-06 for a longgggggggggg time. Well I left it there.

    After picking up my wife and the other lady we went back to Scheels for my wife to pick up her XDs she bought Monday night. While standing there I started talking to the gentleman there we do lot of business with. I asked him a few questions about the older Remington over there. We got to talking and he asked me if I was interested. I thought for about 60 seconds and said yes. We walked over there. I held it again. He took the bolt out for me to look at the bore. I told him I'll take it. Nope its not a "tactical" rifle but I'm happy. Guess that AR will have to wait a bit longer. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow if I can.

    A good pistol, a good shotgun, an AR, and a good long range shooter. Well rounded.

    Awesome! Can't go wrong with a 700! I'll get back on the bolt action bandwagon soon. Probably with a Weatherby Vanguard or a Ruger Gunsite Scout.

    IMO you made a great choice! The model 700 is a great gun. I owned the BDL in 3006 for many years and greatly regret getting rid of it. I now own CDL models in a few calibers. Again, great guns!

    Well Done!

    Nikon makes great products too and usually beats Leupold on price.

    Remington Model 700's are just sexy. Many a white-tail down here in these swamps wish they had never been invented. Mine are flavored: 7mm Remington Magnum and 30-06 Springfield, (.308 Winchester too if you wanna count my lil Model 7).

    Congrat's on a classic piece !

    I never had a 700 that couldn't shoot better 'n me !

    You don't always need to go tactical and be tacticool. It is good that you got a weapon off your must have list. Enjoy it man. Congrats!

    Congrats! Shoot it in good health.

    Much depends on your exact definition of "tactical" AKA A good, accurate, long gun with a optic & firing a decently powerful projectile that can really reach out and touch something could be considered appropriately tactical.

    There are some fairly common "tactical scenarios" that I can think of where that just might be the exact rifle that I would want.

    Of course to make it really tactical you would need to invest in a spray can of flat black gun lacquer.

    Good choice. If you decide to "Go Tactical" you can always paint it black and tape a flashlight to the barrel...

    You simply can't go wrong with the Remington 700 action. I have a .270 that I have taken big game in five states with, and trust it more than my best friend. Good for you.

    Tactics is all in how you use the weapon.

    I'm going pimp slap the first ninja I see paint a Remington walnut stock black and start screwing rail sections into the wood because its "tactical" !

    You have a fine rifle there.

    Too late already did it.. Just joking. No way am I doing anything to this rifle except end up putting another scope on it. Heck and that doesn't have to be done right away since it does have a cheapo on it and the iron sights. I love classic looking rifles.


    As far as the tactical wording it was kind of "tongue in cheek", because you don't see to many traditional rifles posted on here.
