It looked nice but it didn't look $5800 nice. Some people are just swimming in cash I guess.
    . It must have come from "Gunsmoke" in Colorado and Paige must have packed it up form shipping.

    Those competitive target guys pay some bucks for their little guns. I don't get it, but then again we all have a hobby that we spend too much on.

    Why do you care what anyone spends on what they want?

    Most expensive .22 I've heard of is the Volquartsen. $1200 bucks.

    I haveno problems with folks spending money on their hobby. But like someone said:price does not mean the best. I shoot trap with a 220 dollar Mossberg 835 and hit 23's. I have shot my friends 5000 dollar Ithaca and do no better. BUt if I had the money I would buy a prettier gun

    Wowzers, more power to the owner of that, but I did the math and I'd make my $5800 stretch a little more...

    Lots of people enjoy rimfire competition, but I for one am not worthy of one at that cost.
    Some people just have alot of disposable income.

    Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
    Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.
