Default Your Rifle need not cost 500.xx to go Deer Hunting

I am one of the worst offenders saying that you should plan on spending 500.xx on a quality rifle/scope combo. Having admitted my snobbery I will go record that an inexpensive single shot or well used firearm will kill a Deer just as dead. The bullet does the killing and assuming you put it in the correct place the rifle is a non issue. Yes I prefer quality, but I would use whatever I could afford. I would never look down on someone carrying or shooting an inexpensive rifle/scope combo. That person is one of us.
